Qualifications and Experience
Perry Sexton grew up in Redlands, California where his pastimes included athletics and music. These instilled a goal oriented attitude that is reflected in his approach with his patients,encouraging them to be proud of what they are, but never satisfied with it. He obtained his bachelor of science in biology from Sonoma State University. He then attended Loma Linda University where he attained his MD in 2001. His career led him to the East coast where he trained in emergency medicine and family practice at Yale and The University of Pennsylvania respectively. Since that time he has lived and practiced in San Diego. He is licensed in the state of California and board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, and he is a member of the American Association of Family Practice. Dr. Sexton's enthusiasm and reputation for encouraging patient education is well recognized by his colleagues and patients. His several appearances on NBC morning news in the past few years have shown his passion for improving community health through education about lifestyle. His Three-Step Diet Plan was even adopted by the city of Philadelphia as a strategy to combat the growing problem of obesity in their community in 2006. He has published many articles and book chapters within his field. However, Doctor Sexton maintains that his passion for patient education is best seen in the time he spends with his individual patients, teaching them with a whiteboard and a marker. In starting his own practice, Doctor Sexton has made it his mission to offer a new breed of healthcare to those who have felt either intimidated or disenfranchised by the medical system of the day. He has embraced an atmosphere that would seem more like a day spa than a medical office. He offers hope to those who have found themselves overburdened with medications and overwhelmed by confusing diagnoses. He is always eager to offer understandable explanations, continuous instruction on the changes that can be made to improve that condition, and compassionate support along the path to healing. Evidence and faith, medication as well as motivation, are all principles that Doctor Sexton has come to embrace through his broad experience. In his personal life Doctor Sexton enjoys expressing his creativity in writing and comedy. He hopes to, one day, perform as a stand-up comic. Until that day, laughter remains his preferred medicine and thankfully there is still no co-payment for it. He has a passion for the ocean and enjoys surfing in the nearby waters. His family and close friends have been and remain an amazing and strong force in his life.

Awesome as in very thorough, professional, compassionate and what they call 'good bedside manners. Made me feel very comfortable and informed without pressure and no judgements.
Dr. Sexton is super friendly. Spent way more time with me answering my questions than any other doc I have met with has. Highly recommend using him.
You only have to look at the many positive comments below this one to know there is something different about this office. Dr. Sexton sat and talked with me for almost 45 minutes this morning during my appointment so that he could get to know me, not just my chart. Unheard of!
I have to say Dr. Sexton is THE MOST comprehensive, concerned and understanding physician I have ever visited. He explains in great detail what is going with my health during my visits. I really appreciate his approach to diagnosing ailments and alternative procedures rather than just doping me up with a bunch of drugs. What I also find quite pleasant is that he displays a genuine concern as to how I am doing personally with life and family. This office is outstanding, all of the staff is tremendously pleasant and outgoing. I refer this clinic to everyone I know. The options of treatment and rehabilitation seem endless. Huge thanks!!!! A+
He took time with me, and it was very clear that my over all well-being and quality of life is very important to him.
I never take the time to answer these things - Coolest doctor I have ever had an appointment with. Could not believe how much time he spend talking with me. Usually, the doctor pops in after their assistant does everything; they ask a few question, give a fake smile, and then leave the room as quickly as they entered. Dr. Sexton was pretty rad!
Very good communication. The Dr. took the time to understand and ask probing questions and help me to understand as well. The office staff was wonderful and the spa decor was a plus as well. Overall very good experience for a visit to the Dr.
Dr Sexton takes the time to review your chart before you arrive to reacquaint with your prior visits. Great notes are taken each time. He spends the time to know what is going on with you, not just the 10 minute how-ya-doin' bit. A REAL doctor visit. Not only does he take the time to know your health and your life, but he is also technology-oriented, linking you and your other doctors to your medical history. Full service!
Dr. Sexton and his entire staff are great! he is all about preventative medicine and patient education.
Dr. Sexton really does care about your concerns, no matter how many you have. It's really relieving to know I have a doctor that has my back
Dr. Sexton cares about providing high-quality care. He uses a holistic approach to medicine, by focusing on traditional and alternative methods for treatment. His staff is personable and polite. Highly recommend.
I hate going to the doctor, always have and my experience with him was amazing. So knowledgeable and personable. I would recommend him to anyone. Great doctor!!! Very happy to have him as my primary care physician.
Dr. Sexton was extremely friendly and did a great job explaining everything. I would highly recommend him.
The most health conscious doctor I have ever met! No white coat docs prescribing lab rats over priced drugs here. These are real people here to help and very professional too!! Dr. Sexton and Nurse Rick are amazing people focusing on an abundance of health not sickness.
Best doctor I've ever had. They really get to know you and are very comforting and honest. Definitely recommended.
He is a very smart doctor and I trust he always has my best interests in mind. He listens attentively to everything I say, and comes up with the best treatment plan for the situation.
I think he must have seen my check off list because he targeted exactly what I was wanting to see him about when he hadn't seen my list. He picked up on things that supposed experts missed. He's an answer to all my research and prayers. I'm so grateful to finally find a truly holistic MD. He's given me hope to see that the end of the tunnel is in sight.
Dr Sexton was very thorough and consultative. He took his time to really understand my situation. I love his health care philosophy and highly recommend him.
He made you feel like he had all the time in the world to discuss your health concerns. Describes everything in detail and is very easy to understand. Highly recommend this doctor and makes you feel very comfortable as well!
All I can say is that Dr. Sexton is one of the best doctors I have been to! He is very informative and modern in his approach to addressing your concerns. Friendly staff that goes above and beyond for their patients. I highly recommend him!
Dr made me feel comfortable right away. Did not rush. I would definitely recommend him.
All of my appointments with Dr. Sexton are great. Dr. Sexton always displays genuine concern with all his patients. Rick and Dr. Sexton have great cutting edge ideas on health and wellness, and share good plans for maintaining body and mind. Very warm and relaxing atmosphere. It really does feel like a spa rather than the usual medical office.
Great approach, very refreshing. Holistic, integrative medicine - looks addressing underlying causes, not just treating acute symptoms. It's not all about drugs, but more about lifestyle modifications. Office is very "zen" as is Dr. sexton's manner. I would recommend to anyone who believes in doctors who promote wellness rather than just treating sickness (Dr. Sexton does both, but clear emphasis on promoting wellness).
Wonderful physician and staff! Dr. Sexon takes time to fully explain diagnoses and answer all questions. Love his white board diagrams and explanations, too.
Great first time back to see a doctor in almost 15 years and it was a great experience. Dr. Sexton has a motley crew working with him that are all obviously good at what they do. The doctor is engaging, listens well, and has a great way of diagnosing and explaining your issues. Thank you! I definitely feel comfortable saying I have found MY doctor.
We just moved to the area and used the feedback from this site to "risk" on a new primary care Dr. As a full time working single father of two my free time during business hours is limited. All of the rave reviews Dr Sexton receives on ZocDoc he earns, trust me. So grateful we chose Dr Sexton as our new primary care. He cares about his patients overall well being. Dr Sexton is the complete package.
Dr Sexton demonstrates real concern for the well-being of the patient, taking into consideration the needs and wishes of the patient as well as medical solutions.
Very impressed by Dr Sexton and the Encinitas Family Care experience. Dr Sexton was very present, attentive and generous with his time and advice. He was not quick to prescribe medication and offered me a sensible course of treatment, while assuring me that we will monitor and adjust as needed. I was also impressed by the the open, inviting and "paperless" office environment!
Dr Sexton is an excellent listener and takes the time to understand his patients health and personality. His approach of developing a complete plan, not just a prescription, to make people more healthy is what all Dr's should do.
while I would not list a doctor's appointment ahead of 72 hours with Selma Hayek I had a good time, questions were answered and everyone in the office is always nice.

Dr Sexton is professional, thorough and a great listener. He has an outlook that concerns the health of the patient's whole being. Refreshing!
He spends the time to know the patient vs feeling like just another 15 minute interruption of his day. He remembers the progress and issues from one time to the next. Works with the other docs to help. Is very open to feedback.
