    Dr. Oandasan is a Board Certified Family Medicine Physician and holds a Degree of Fellow from the American Academy of Family Physicians. She has 10 years of experience in academic medicine teaching medical students and residents in the Department of Family Medicine. For seven years, she worked as Assistant Clinical Professor at the Texas A & M University Health Science Center in Central Texas, where she also completed her residency training, and as Senior Staff Physician at the Baylor Scott & White Healthcare System. 

    Prior to joining Eisenhower as Associate Program Director of its Family Residency Program, she worked for three years at the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine as Assistant Clinical Professor. She helped with its mission to improve healthcare access to the underserved population of Coachella Valley by providing hands-on patient care, teaching residents in its new Family Medicine Residency Program, and participating in multiple school-related activities both on campus and in the local community.  

    Dr. Oandasan completed an executive educational program with certification in Advanced Intercultural Management and Executive Leadership and Management at the University of Notre Dame. College of Business. She has a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Technology and a strong background in Clinical Laboratory Science and Management. Her special interests include women's health, pediatric care and laboratory medicine as it relates to preventive, and chronic care of all patient groups.

    Dr. Oandasan chose the specialty of family medicine because “I know that with this specialty, I can do more for my patients anytime, anywhere, and there are many choices when it comes to practicing in this field. I also feel confident helping as a physician when natural disaster strikes. This reminds me of that time when the relief shelters for evacuees of Hurricanes Katrina and at another time, Ike and Rita, needed volunteers. Making the decision to do it was easy because as a family physician, I have with me the spirit of volunteerism and the mindset that I can take care of practically any patient one way or another.

    Why Academic Medicine? “This keeps me motivated to stay current on new evidence relating to the care of our patients which, in my opinion, helps me in getting better at what I do as a doctor. I also teach with the hope that, in the process of educating the next generation of doctors, at least one of them would be inspired to teach, too.”
