Simon Akl, D.O.
Dr. Simon Akl was raised in Los Angeles, California where he attended a full immersion French American school through High School. He was accepted to California State University Fullerton as a President’s Scholar graduating with a B.S. in Health Sciences and a double minor in Kinesiology and French. He then went on to attend medical school at Western University of Health Sciences where he quickly discovered his passion for teaching resulting in his selection as a pre-doctoral teaching fellow in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. Simon developed an interest for family medicine with his focus on continuity care while emphasizing the importance of lifestyle choices such as diet and exercise. He feels blessed to continue his training and participate in an exciting growth process at CMHS. Outside of his medical profession, Simon comes from a Lebanese family which influenced him to learn French and Arabic. During his free time he enjoys traveling, playing basketball and volleyball, outdoor activities at the beach, hiking and camping. He looks forward to serving the Ventura community!
