Meet the Team
Dan Schmitz, MD: The UCLA Health – Redondo Beach team is a friendly, experienced group that works seamlessly together. Our physicians are trained in family medicine, internal medicine and pediatrics; we’re experts in the care of patients of all ages. We’re easily accessible to the community, both in our location and in our offering of regularly scheduled visits as well as urgent care walk-ins.
Juline Asamoah, MD: I specialize in internal medicine and pediatrics. I chose this specialty due to the training that allowed me to pursue my passions. My clinical focus is in the areas of adolescent medicine, LGBTQ+/gender health and providing care for patients with chronic childhood diseases as they become adults. Chronic childhood diseases include sickle cell disease, congenital heart disease, cerebral palsy, etc. Currently I am part of a group of primary care physicians at UCLA Health who provide care for patients with sickle cell disease, and I am excited to see the program grow.
Dr. Schmitz: I am board-certified in both internal medicine (general adult medicine) and pediatrics, which means I take care of patients of all ages. I enjoy preventive medicine—helping keep people healthy in the first place—as well as empowering patients with the knowledge and tools they need to manage chronic conditions throughout their lives.
Dr. Schmitz: The most powerful steps to improving our overall health often lie in the foundational principles of a healthy diet, regular exercise, connectedness to others, and staying up to date in preventive care. The challenge lies in translating these ideas into everyday practice and staying consistent. I enjoy helping patients implement these steps in a way that works for their lives.
Technology’s Impact on Health Care
Dr. Asamoah: Technology makes providing access easier. One of the biggest barriers to health care is just having access to physicians. Telehealth is a convenient option for many patients with non-complex medical conditions, but it also provides patients who have difficulty with transportation or ambulation or a medical condition that prevents them from leaving their homes with an easier way to schedule an appointment with their physicians. While telehealth isn’t right for every visit, it is a great use of technology to provide increased access for patients.
Dr. Asamoah: Mental health is so important! Make time for self-care. Each person is different in how they like to pursue their mental health self-care—whether it’s playing a sport, reading, going on vacation, taking walks, etc. Whatever works for you, it is important to give yourself the time. If you or someone around you notices that you are down and unable to get out of a funk, or anxious or depressed to the point that it’s preventing you from doing normal tasks, seek help! That’s what we are here for.
Meet the Doc
Dr. Schmitz: I enjoy getting outside as much as I can: running, hiking or heading to the beach with my wife and our energetic, 15-month-old Shepherd mix in tow. As relatively new South Bay residents, we are enjoying spending weekends exploring all of our local restaurants and community offerings.
Dr. Asamoah: I love food; I’m a huge foodie. That was one of the biggest bonuses in moving to Los Angeles: having accessibility to all types of different foods. There are so many amazing options!
