Our Story

AppleCare Medical Group was formed in Lynwood, California, in 1996 by two practicing physicians, Dr. Vinod Jivrajka and Dr. Surendra Jain. Their vision was simple: to make quality care available locally to their community. Over the last 20 years, the multi-specialty medical group of independent practices has expanded into new communities, contracted with more hospitals and health plans, and added over 50 new doctors—but the mission has remained the same.

Today, AppleCare Medical Group is comprised of hundreds of board-certified private-practice, independent physicians. Collectively, our physicians have been serving the Southeast Los Angeles County and Northern Orange County for decades, providing their medical expertise and passion to improving the health of our communities.

Because we want the highest quality medical care for you and your family, the physicians of AppleCare Medical Group share a common medical philosophy — to put the patient’s needs first and foremost. Our more than 900 community-based primary care and specialist physicians are dedicated to providing you and your family members with the highest quality of care possible through our local health clinics. This is why we have worked hard to develop services that will make getting care convenient for our patients.
