I was born in India but moved to Orange County, CA at the young age of 10. After completing high school there, I went to Johns Hopkins University for my B.A. in Biology along with a Minor in Hispanic Studies. I then spent a year doing research with the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD before returning to Southern California to pursue my medical education at Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, CA. I then completed by specialty training in Family Medicine at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, CA and have been a board certified family physician ever since. Prior to joining The Claremont Colleges, I spent fifteen years with a large multi-specialty group as both an Urgent Care physician initially for 10 years as well as a Family Physician for 5 years. Despite having extensive experience in treating both acute as well as chronic conditions, what I really enjoy most is spending time discussing wellness and disease prevention, especially in a holistic approach balancing physical & mental health and how they affect each other. Apart from work, I enjoy traveling worldwide with my family as well as gardening in our backyard. Louise Haas Administrative Services Manager | Email

Prior to joining The Claremont Colleges Services I worked in the medical field for over twenty-five years and have had experience in a variety of different roles.

I am very fortunate to have been born and raised in Southern California. I attended the University of Southern California for my undergraduate studies, graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Exercise Science.

While I enjoy all aspects of medicine, I especially enjoy sports medicine. When I am not working at Health Services, I like to spend time with my family. I have been happily married for over thirty years, and have three children. Two of my children currently attend college and the other one just completed graduate school last year.
