PARLIER/REEDLEY/RIVERDALE – Adventist Health / Community Care welcomes family medicine physician Dr. Jose Amador who cares for patients at three clinics in Parlier, Reedley and Riverdale.       

Dr. Amador, who specializes in family medicine, prenatal care, adolescent care and sports injuries, has cared for patients in the Valley since 2004, in the mountain communities of Mariposa and Oakhurst, as well as in Soledad and Parlier. He also previously served as medical director for a wound healing and hyperbaric oxygen center in Merced. Dr. Amador is fluent in English and Spanish.

Raised by migrant farm workers, Dr. Amador said he feels a connection to his patients and can empathize with the Latino population.

Dr. Amador decided to become a physician after two trips, the first spending weeks in both Lima and Cuzco Peru, and after living for a month with a primitive tribe in Irian Jaya, Indonesia. 

After switching from Latin American studies major to a Neuroscience major while at University of California, Los Angeles, Dr. Amador then earned a medical degree from Ohio State University College of Medicine and completed family practice residency training at Natividad Medical Center in Salinas, Calif.
