CVMG adds providers, keeps pace with growth

As Cucamonga Valley Medical Group continues to grow throughout the Inland Empire, we’ve also added two new physicians and two extenders.

CVMG, which recently opened its sixth location in Rancho Cucamonga, welcomed Dr. Brandon Tong, D.O., an internal medicine physician who will see patients at multiple CVMG locations, and Mirelle Ann Marquez Ignacio, M.D., who will be at the Rancho Cucamonga location. Also joining the CVMG team are Physician Assistant Helen Zhu at North Fontana and Family Nurse Practitioner Janet Ellen Ursua at Rancho Cucamonga.

“As we continue to grow geographically, we also continue to grow our talented team. Each of our locations is staffed by our incredible providers and extenders,” said Rahmi Mowjood, D.O., FACOFP. “Our patients now have access to six locations as well as a respected group of providers. No matter which Cucamonga Valley Medical Group location is the best fit for a patient, they know they can count on receiving the highest quality of care while being treated like a part of the family.”
