Meet Dr. Wallis


provider imageDavid Wallis, MD, is a fellowship-trained family and sports medicine physician who has been practicing in the South Bay area of Los Angeles for almost 20 years. He lives with his family in Hermosa Beach and has now opened his new practice at Beach Cities Medicine, located nearby in Redondo Beach.

He graduated with honors from the University of California, Los Angeles, with a degree in biology before attending the University of California, San Diego, for medical school. While he planned to go into a surgical subspecialty, he found his greatest "emotional paycheck" came from getting to know his patients over time and helping them with a wide variety of ailments. He completed his residency and internship in family medicine at UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center, followed by a fellowship in primary care and sports medicine. 

Professionally, Dr. Wallis has been fortunate to work with amazing colleagues and patients. He has worked with athletes on the recreational, collegiate, and professional levels, including as a team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers, LA Galaxy, Chivas USA, US National Soccer Team, Ontario Reign hockey team, All-American Heavyweights Boxing, and others. 

He has also worked as an expert reviewer for the Medical Board of California and consulted for pharmaceutical companies. He has published over a dozen academic journal articles and book chapters on a wide variety of topics and served as a peer reviewer for academic medical journals as well. 

Personally, Dr. Wallis is even more blessed. He and his wife of over 25 years have four healthy kids. He loves the outdoors and staying active, and has completed several marathons including Boston, triathlons including several Ironmans, and other endurance adventures such as the Paris-Brest-Paris bicycle ride. He tries to practice what he preaches, however, he is also the first to admit he's only human and that we need to give ourselves grace in our shortcomings.

Whether working in a massive stadium or intimate office, treating world-class athletes or the elderly in their last days, making a house visit to a bed-bound patient or visiting them in the hospital, the doctor-patient relationship has been something Dr. Wallis has cherished as he has built his career in volume-based care models. He is especially excited about the new depth of relationship and care he will be able to provide.
