Carl Jonokuchi, MD
This marks the 30th year that Dr. Carl Jonokuchi has been providing family medical care in Ventura County. Some of the families in his practice span as many as four generations: Dr. Jonokuchi emphasizes not just holistic care but how a doctor can keep siblings, grandparents and kids healthy as well. While most of his patients live in the surrounding neighborhood, one comes every year from far away Singapore for physicals.
Dr. Jonokuchi’s practice covers newborns to seniors, including well-woman care and teens. Although primary preventive care is always important, he also has special interests in asthma and allergies, autoimmune disorders, sleep and sleep apnea, as well as focus and attention issues among children and adults.
When not in his office, tennis with friends has kept him active and outdoors. Skiing in Mammoth with family and friends has always been a winter favorite. His wife, also a family physician, is the Director of the Family Practice residency at Dignity/Northridge Hospital. His oldest son is an aerospace engineer for Boeing/ NASA and just recently became engaged. His younger son is a professional jazz trumpet player and has been playing at clubs in New York. He also teaches music to middle school students in Brooklyn.
