About

Santa Monica Primary Care is an independent, full service Internal Medicine practice located adjacent to Providence Saint John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California. Dr. Philip M. Bretsky first established the practice in 2008 in Century City, California. Following two years in Century City, he moved to Santa Monica in 2010 and the practice was renamed Santa Monica Primary Care.

Our office provides both outpatient and inpatient healthcare for patients. Dr. Bretsky is on staff at two local hospitals: Providence Saint John’s Health Center, and Cedars Sinai Medical Center. He also takes care of patients at nearby Skilled Nursing centers such as Berkeley East, Seaport 17, Rehabilitation Centre of Santa Monica and Santa Monica Healthcare. If needed, this enables Dr. Bretsky to maintain continuity of care for patients from the office, to the hospital, to the rehab center, and back home.

Our office is staffed with carefully selected and highly trained people who do their best to provide you with a friendly, positive experience in our office. Leading the team is Marian Henry, who brings over 20 years of business and management experience across many fields to deliver a standard of administrative excellence to our office.

Santa Monica Primary Care provides a comprehensive range of services that help our patients maintain their overall health. We offer our patients annual wellness exams, acute and chronic illness management, preventive and diagnostic skin procedures, cardiac stress testing, in-office ultrasounds, sports physicals, travel medicine, and vaccines. We believe that patients should be able to center their care around our office, which is why we offer extensive services in-house. This allows our patients more time to spend enjoying their health outside of a doctor’s office and more time with their friends and family.
