Established Family Practice Relocates to Vista Medical Plaza
Dr. Linda Falconio, M.D. and team open new office in Tri-City area
Vista, CA – Vista Medical Plaza, one of the largest outpatient health centers serving the Tri-City area, announced the opening of its newest tenant, The Doctor’s Office. As the leading board-certified physician in one of North San Diego County’s top family practices, Dr. Linda Falconio, M.D., has been practicing family medicine since 1979. She and her team at The Doctor’s Office recently relocated their Encinitas office to the Tri-City area. Now open, The Doctor’s Office is located in Vista Medical Plaza at 2067 West Vista Way, Suite 225 in Vista, California.
“One of our main concerns when looking for a new location was to be in a convenient location for our North County patient population,” said Dr. Falconio. “Being in the heart of Tri-City makes us accessible to our patients. Vista Medical Plaza is an ideal location and our patients are happy with the new office.”
Dr. Falconio graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Illinois and attended their medical school in Chicago and Peoria. Her internship year was spent at Indiana University Medical Center before moving to California. Dr. Falconio completed her family practice residency at the UCSD Medical Center and continues to be board certified in family practice with an interest in women’s medicine and preventive care.
The extended team of providers at The Doctor’s Office also includes two physician’s assistants and a dermatology nurse practitioner.
Johanna McEwen-Morofski, PA-C, joined Dr. Falconio’s practice in 1995 graduated from UC Davis as a Physician Assistant certified in Family Practice. She works alongside Dr. Falconio and is able to do all routine aspects of family medicine including a special interest in women’s health.
Mercedes Dodge, PA-C, has been practicing as a family medicine physician assistant since graduating from the UC Davis Physician Assistant program in 2008, and holds a BA in Biology and Psychology from Rice University. Mercedes is particularly passionate about helping patients manage and prevent chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
Kelly Halloran, M.N., R.N.C., F.N.P., D.N.C. is the newest member of their team and is a Dermatology Nurse Practitioner. She graduated Magna cum Laude with both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UCLA, and also received honors of the UCLA Faculty Graduation Award and the UCLA Alumni Association Graduation Award. As well, she holds a B.A. in Biology from UCSD-Revelle College. A longtime member of the national Dermatology Nurses Association, Kelly was voted Dermatology Nurse of the Year in 2006 by the North Coast Civic Association. She comes home to North County as “Mermaid by the Sea”, providing her 25 years of medical and cosmetic dermatology expertise.
With the addition of The Doctor’s Office family practice, Vista Medical Plaza is now home to more than 40 physicians and dentists, representing over 15 different medical and dental specialties.
“We are very happy that Dr. Falconio and her team decided to relocate to Vista Medical Plaza,” stated Greg Petree, President of AmeriCare Medical Properties, the company that manages the health center.
Mr. Petree added, “Primary care and family medicine play an invaluable role not only in taking care of local patient within the community, but often as the beginning of the referral cycle to other medical specialists. Combined with Dr. Falconio’s nearly 35 years of experience, The Doctor’s Office is a perfect complement the other reputable specialties in the building.”
