Dr. Jennifer Gopeng is a board-certified physician specializing in Family Medicine, who completed her medical education at St. Luke’s College of Medicine in the Philippines and her residency at Natividad Family Medical Residency in California. She has been working in the healthcare field for approximately 15 years and is a recent addition to our South Nellis team in Las Vegas, NV. Dr. Gopeng has the added advantage of being bilingual in Filipino and English. When asked what she enjoys most about her profession, her answer is clear: It’s the interactions with her patients. At the South Nellis center, Dr. Gopeng also enjoys the many resources available to care for them. Dr. Gopeng’s experience in Las Vegas includes treating mostly geriatric patients in a variety of settings: long-term acute care, rehab, skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, and clinics. Before her move to Las Vegas, she also worked as a hospitalist and a primary care provider. Dr. Gopeng feels that all of these experiences have led to a better understanding of her senior patients; the complexity of their medical issues and the social issues that affect them. For Dr. Gopeng, when it comes to ensuring patient satisfaction, it’s all about R-E-S-P-E-C-T, and quite simply, her philosophy of care is to treat the individual patient with respect. When she is not caring for patients, Dr. Gopeng loves to travel.
