Family physician

Dr. Jon G. Eichelberger is a family medicine doctor. He provides a wide spectrum of care, ranging from urgent medical needs to preventive care, for all age groups. He manages chronic diseases and educates his patients on matters important to their health.

He is passionate about helping underserved communities access health care, and previously worked at several medical centers reaching out to those communities. At UCSF, he enjoys walking to work, the collegiate atmosphere and working with some of the best minds in medicine.
