President's Message

Dr. Paul Mercer

CareMore was founded in 1993 in Downey, CA by Dr. Sheldon Zinberg and a group of Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) and Specialists. This visionary band of physicians recognized that the initial HMO concept in California was seriously flawed especially for the senior population, so they formed a group and revolutionized the way medicine was practiced.

CareMore adopted the strategy of putting the doctors in charge and giving the PCPs all of the tools and resources they needed to keep people healthy. The motto was "put people ahead of profit and everyone wins!"

In 2006 CMGI became an independent Medical Group of which I became President of in 2009. Today we are still physician owned and operated. We have 24 Primary Care Physicians and 4 PCP/Specialists practicing at 18 different locations in S. E. Los Angeles and N. Orange Counties. 

In 2012, CareMore Medical Group expanded to Las Vegas and are known as the CareMore Medical Group of Nevada.  Today CMGN has 7 Physicians, 1 Nurse Practitioner and 2 Physician Assistants practicing out of 3 locations in Las Vegas.

Our doctors practice the highest quality medicine and are contracted with many IPAs, PPOs and HMOs. We are consistently top performers in quality metrics and especially excel in senior care, producing superior results for CareMore Health Plan patients.

So please, enjoy our website. If you are a prospective patient, please see our physician roster.  If you are a physician looking to join a successful and stable group, or just want more information about CMGI, please do not hesitate to contact us.
