Jason Chirichigno believes primary care offers the ability to form lifelong relationships that affect lasting change. He appreciates how One Medical fosters the doctor-patient partnership and allows him the opportunity to practice his engaged, caring, and compassionate style. Jason believes it’s important to have an open discussion about lifestyle modifications that include nutrition and exercise and to provide patients with in-depth explanations of medications they may be taking or considering. Jason particularly enjoys addressing issues involved in sports medicine, as well as treating complicated illnesses like heart disease and diabetes, and endocrine issues like hypothyroidism. Additionally, he also enjoys treating mental health issues including depression, anxiety, and insomnia. To stay healthy, he incorporates walking, healthy eating, and meditation into his daily life. When he’s not in the office, he loves exploring new cities on foot, trying new restaurants, traveling, and spending time with his wife and two young children. Born and raised in New York City, he crossed the country with his family to embrace the healthy California lifestyle and help his Los Angeles patients internalize that health ethos. Jason attended Cornell University for his undergraduate degree, Boston University School of Medicine for his master’s degree in medical sciences, and St. George’s University for his medical degree. He graduated from his internal medicine residency at Lenox Hill Hospital, which is part of the Hofstra University School of Medicine.
