Desta Ellis, MD

Resident Physician

  • Program Year: 1
  • Medical School:  Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina
  • Reason for choosing Family Medicine:  I have chosen Family Medicine because I believe it is one of the most valuable medical services a healthcare system can provide.  I wanted to train in a field that specializes in comprehensive patient centered care and also the promotion of health, and disease prevention.  As a seasoned physician, I want to help improve the health outcomes of medically underserved communities and my training in Family Medicine will definitely provide the skills for me to accomplish that objective.
  • Reason for choosing Kaweah Delta:  The primary reason I selected Kaweah Delta's FM Residency Program is because it is a community based program with a vested interest in training residents to appropriately address health issues that plague medically underserved areas.  My passion is to work in underserved communities and it is important that I be part of a residency program with faculty and physicians who share this same commitment.  
  • Hobbies/Interests: Spending quality time with friends and family.  Traveling abroad.  Watching professional & college sports (basketball and football).  Playing Fantasy Football.
