Everything in Your Body is Connected.
When something feels off, you and your doctor need to look at your complete health history to understand where your symptoms stem from. But how can you do that when the average person sees their doctor for 15 minutes at a time?
At OC Sports and Wellness, your doctors use longer-than-average appointments, advanced specialty tests, and insightful questions about your health history, genetics, and lifestyle to see the whole of you. Instead of just looking at one part of you in isolation, they zoom way out — because people are more complicated than their symptoms.
We utilize advanced testing early on to give us answers surrounding your symptoms to get to plans, solutions, and remedies quicker. But we don’t leave you to navigate the rest on your own; we stay with you each step of the way — advising, supporting, and guiding — giving you the resources to continuously optimize your health. We partner with you to achieve your health, wellness, and fitness goals — and stick to them.

WORDS FROM OUR HAPPY CLIENTS
I think I recall my diagnosis was stage three or four arthritis in my left knee.
Over the past three years, I have progressed from Euflexxa and Supartz to cortisone for emergency relief and treatment before golfing trips and things like that. When the gels no longer worked and the cortisone was obviously not healthy for the tissue, I was taking diclofenac.
When the injections no longer worked, I finally went to the platelet-rich plasma injections. I’ve had two of those over the past two months, and the relief has been very encouraging.
Dr. Samuel Sunshine and PRP have removed my dependence on NSAIDs. PRP has removed 95% of the stiffness and aches associated with knee arthritis.
I spent four years feeling sick and going to countless doctors that couldn’t help me. After a few months as DPC patient with Dr. Sunshine, I’m feeling better than I have years. It is such an amazing experience to work with a doctor who always makes time to listen to you and works with you to make sure you are as healthy as can be!
I’ve had many primary care physicians over the years. I was with Kaiser for a while and when I left, I found Dr. Sunshine. He is the best doctor I’ve ever had by far. He takes time with me whenever I have anything going on. His staff is incredible. Sandy, his Office Manager, is so helpful! She’ll bend over backward to help with anything you need. And they are a DPC, which allows you to get extra care, more time with the doctor, very quick response at any hour, and truly affordable and comprehensive care. Plus, Dr. Sunshine focuses on overall wellness. He isn’t quick to prescribe medication. Instead, he focuses on holistic health, nutrition, and wellness, focusing on the root of any issue, rather than masking issues with drugs. Absolutely outstanding care!
Dr. Sunshine cares. In a world where doctors seem to treat their patients as 3-minute transactions, Dr. Sunshine develops long-lasting relationships with his patients, taking the time to thoroughly understand the whole patient, their concerns, and prescribes treatment best suited for the entirety of patient. The value of this relationship and the level of trust that comes with it is immeasurable.
As an example, some time ago I was feeling quite sick and went to the local clinic to get whatever medicine would make me better. Dr. Sunshine ran some tests and provided treatment as I would have expected. A couple of days later, out of the blue, I received a call from him following up and letting me know that the tests he ran came back indicating I had contracted multiple viruses and that we should adjust the treatment. No doctor had ever done that for me. That chance session started a 25-year medical relationship, and I have been privileged to have him keeping me healthy ever since.
Dr. Sunshine takes interest in not only my overall health, but in my health goals as well. After years of yo-yo diets after having children, Dr. Sunshine encouraged a lifestyle change that incorporated proper nutrition and exercise. And the results have been amazing from the inside out. My cholesterol is at its lowest level ever, I have dropped close to 40 pounds (on average 2 pounds per week), 5 points in body fat, lots of inches and 4 clothing sizes…and I feel fabulous. The changes he encouraged me to make are easy ones to incorporate in my day to day routine, so it is becoming a way of life, not just a one time diet.
Super knowledgeable sports physician looks for solutions through strengthening and physical therapy. I know when I come to him for help I get an answer from someone who understands how IMPORTANT running is to me. I drive 20 miles out of my way to see Dr. Sunshine!!!
