Calvin Ly, DO, MBA

Physician Lead

Diligent and ambitious, Calvin strives for quality and excellence; his goal is to deliver quality care to patients. He believes excellent communication skills are critical and crucial in delivering quality medical care to patients.

After Emergency Medicine training at Case Western Reserve University, the first step in his career was with Kaiser (Emergency Department) in the Los Angeles and Orange County regions. He then transferred up to Northern California to take on a new leadership role managing the Cowell Health Center located at Santa Clara University. He honed his communication, educational, and management skills working with physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses and medical assistants, while developing memories and rapport with the students at SCU. While working at Santa Clara University, Calvin kept up his emergency skillset by commuting up to San Francisco to work in the Emergency Department at the California Pacific Medical Center (both Davies and St. Luke’s Campuses) and at Chinese Hospital. He applied the Spanish he learned in high school and college and the Cantonese he learned as a child.

Calvin was valedictorian at Grace Davis High School, graduated with honors at UCSD in Biochemistry, and earned the highest distinction of Summa Cum Laude at the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. Calvin earned his MBA in Health Care Leadership while attending medical school; his class was the second graduating class to take advantage of this dual degree program.

Calvin was born and raised in the Central Valley region of California. He is the second of four children to parents who owned a computer business assembling custom-designed desktops to clients, one of whom was the Stanislaus Unified School District. He is the first generation in his family to obtain a four-year college degree, and the first physician in the family. During his spare time, Calvin loves to be active—running, biking, hiking, swimming, golfing, and playing tennis. During his down time, Calvin likes to read and watch comedies, and very much looks forward to each new season of West World and Game of Thrones.
