Dr. Perry Sexton, MD
Primary Care Doctor
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.
