Arnold Family Medical Center Welcomes New Family Practice Physician


Sonora Regional Medical Center is pleased to welcome Jeremiah Fillo, MD, (pronounced FY-LO) a Family Practice Physician who is now accepting patients at Arnold Family Medical Center.

Dr. Fillo most recently practiced with Scenic Faculty Medical Group in Modesto, California, after earning his Doctor of Medicine from Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Nebraska, and completing his residency training with Valley Family Medicine Residency of Modesto.

Born and raised in Sierra City, near Downieville, California, Dr. Fillo is accustomed to life in a small foothill town. He was inspired by the town’s medical provider who did everything to promote health and healing for his community, like providing medical coverage for sporting events. During medical school, Dr. Fillo also had the opportunity to work in rural health in Nebraska, which further confirmed his desire to practice in a rural setting.

Dr. Fillo encompasses the full spectrum of family medicine, caring for the whole family from newborns to grandparents and encouraging his patients to stay active as much as possible for as long as possible. He emphasizes the importance of being empathetic in his practice and taking time to listen to his patients. “Sometimes knowing that they are being heard is just the therapy they need,” explains Dr. Fillo.

Dr. Fillo is glad to be settling back in California near his family. His parents are still teachers in Downieville. He and his wife are already enjoying the outdoors around their new community in Arnold and look forward to skiing and snowboarding this winter.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Fillo, please call Arnold Family Medical Center at (209) 795-1270.
