Dignity Health Medical Group-Sierra Nevada grows

Dignity Health Medical Group-Sierra Nevada, a service of Dignity Health Medical Foundation, has expanded its medical services with the addition of an internal medicine physician. Thomas Kanomata joins the medical group to add to its scope of services that includes primary care, cardiology, otolaryngology, general surgery, oncology, and neurology.

Kanomata’s special interest is in geriatrics and preventative medicine. He graduated from Loma Linda University, and completed his residency at Kettering Medical Center, followed by a fellowship at American College of Physicians.

“I have a passion for providing free health talks in the community to teach individuals how to improve their lifestyle and reduce chronic diseases,” he said.

Kanomata joins the busy group of primary care physicians that include family practice physicians Jill Fitzpatrick, internal medicine physician Kisha Hughes, cardiology specialist Ryan Smith, otolaryngology specialist Janette Carpenter, and general surgeon W. Chad Statton, oncologist David Campbell and neurologist Ana Gabriela Lizama.

“With the addition of Dr. Kanomata, local residents have greater access to geriatric and preventative care in the foothills,” said Dr. Joe Jasser, president and CEO of Dignity Health Medical Foundation. “We are committed to providing residents in the area the opportunity to see skilled specialists close to home.”
