Jamie A. Elson, MD

Family Medicine Physician

A native of Santa Monica, having attending Franklin Elementary and Brentwood School, Dr. Elson is delighted to be working in her hometown.

She is a board-certified Family Medicine physician, who received her Bachelor of Arts in Neuroscience at Claremont McKenna College, graduating with honors. She underwent her medical training at Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans, where she was involved in numerous outreach programs to restore the city and rebuild the healthcare system after Hurricane Katrina. There, she founded Comfort Food, a novel cooking-therapy intervention for children and teens dealing with the effects of post-traumatic stress. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Tulane University Family Medicine Excellence Award. Dr Elson then returned home to Los Angeles and completed a Family Medicine Residency at UCLA/Santa Monica Hospital.

She is trained in full-scope primary care, including the care of male and female patients of all ages. In her current practice, she is seeing patients aged 13+. While she does see patients for all complaints and issues, she has a specialized skillset in Women’s Health/Gyn Care, Technology in Medicine, Urgent Care and Procedures, Adolescent Medicine, Nutrition and Exercise counseling, Lactation and Postpartum issues and in Preventative Care and Wellness for men and women of all ages.

She maintains her board-certification through the American Board of Family Medicine, and is on-staff at Providence/St. John's Hospital, in Santa Monica, where she is a member of the Physician Wellness Committee, which serves to support other doctors in the community.  She is also a founding member of the Westside Women in Healthcare group, which brings together independent female providers from a variety of different healthcare fields to collaborate and learn from each other.

She currently lives in Santa Monica with her husband and their two children. When not working, she enjoys practicing yoga, cooking, and spending time outdoors enjoying the California sunshine.
