About Us

We've Been Serving the Community for Nearly 25 Years

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 Southeast Los Angeles County and Northern Orange County for decades, committing their medical expertise and passion to improving the health of our communities.

Our Mission, Vision and Values
