Edwin Pai, MD
Dr. Edwin Pai considers communication to be the key ingredient in patient-provider relationships. He focuses on helping people truly understand their diagnosis so that they have the knowledge to properly manage or improve their condition.
Dr. Pai finds working in hospital medicine to be extremely rewarding because so many patients experience a great improvement and feel markedly better when they are discharged. A naturally curious individual, he also appreciates the variety of conditions he is able to help with and the ability to continue advancing his knowledge.
Dr. Pai earned a degree in biology at the University of California in Riverside, California. He graduated with a doctor of medicine from the University of California in San Diego. He completed an internal medicine residency at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, California, serving as chief medical resident his final year. He is board certified in internal medicine.
Away from the hospital, Dr. Pai and his wife love to travel. South Korea, Turkey, and Ireland are a few of the countries they have ticked off their list. He also enjoys making pottery and playing tennis. The couple has four feline fur babies.
