Christopher Foltz, MD

Internal Medicine & Infectious Disease

Christopher’s main focus is on general infectious disease and HIV primary care. He is Board Certified in Infectious Disease and Internal Medicine and handles basic LGBT primary care as well. He’s also involved in per diem work with inpatient infectious disease, specifically in the solid organ and bone marrow transplant population.

Originally from the Midwest, Christopher was born and raised in a suburb of Kansas City. He completed his undergraduate education, majoring in microbiology, at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. He then went on to medical school at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City. While he was in medical school, Christopher ran a student volunteer health clinic for underserved students.

For his internal medicine residency, Christopher relocated to Southern California where he completed his three-year training at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. Realizing his interest in infectious disease and HIV primary care, he then pursued a two-year infectious disease fellowship at UCLA.

Before joining DAP in 2017, Christopher was a Physician, General Internal Medicine at Brentview Medical Urgent Care in West Hollywood; Attending Physician, General Internal Medicine for Saban Community Clinic in Los Angeles; and Physician, Infectious Disease, at CSMG Infectious Disease, also
in Los Angeles.

Christopher is very passionate about HIV/AIDS care, infectious disease medicine, and providing
