Kenya Wilkinson, M.A.
Practice Manager and Holistic Health Consultant
After earning her Master’s degree in education from UCI and graduating with the Magna Cum Laude honors, Kenya pursued a career in elementary education. She loved working with children and being a mentor and educator with a huge heart, but after facing serious health challenges and being given tough diagnoses, she made the decision to trade her colorful cardigans and crayons for medical literature, herbs, and tinctures when she left her teaching career to focus on holistic, functional medicine and healing. Dr. Garcia was the first doctor who was able to help her after countless others had reached a dead end, and as he began nursing her back to life, he introduced her to a whole new world. Kenya has a great appreciation for Dr. Garcia and feels immensely blessed to be his practice manager and teammate.
For the past several years, Kenya has been passionately researching, learning, and educating others on ancestral nutrition, alternative medicine, and incredible healing modalities from around the world. Those who know her well have come to affectionately refer to her as “Dr. Kenya” because of her love and knowledge of holistic medicine. Her passion is and always has been to help others, and now she uses her background in education to teach and empower people to regain and maintain their health. In addition to being Dr. Garcia’s practice manager, she is a holistic health consultant, focusing on guiding others to a vibrant way of life, both physically and emotionally. When she’s not reading the latest medical research or helping patients, she enjoys spending time with her husband of ten years and their goofy English lab. She’s a firecracker, and one that definitely brings a little more light to those she meets.
Kenya offers the following:
- Mind/Body awareness
- Chronic illness support
- Holistic lifestyle coaching
- Functional research and education

I can’t say enough about the positive experience and results I’ve had as a patient of Dr. Garcia’s.
I came to Dr. Garcia four years ago after being fed up with other physicians’ “quick fix” approaches to issues such as chronic knee and back pain, PCOS, Amenorrhea (lack of menstrual cycle), oily skin and hair, hormonal acne, depression, anxiety, and infertility. I knew that I needed to find a doctor who would do more than prescribe pills. After one appointment, I knew I had struck gold with Dr. Garcia. After one visit, I felt relief in my back, neck, and knee. Subsequent visits focused on helping me eliminate toxins, repair my adrenal glands, heal my gut and overcome multiple nutritional deficiencies. Soon, I noticed that my hormones seemed to be stabilizing. It was easier for me to maintain a healthy weight, my acne and oily skin began clearing up, and my mood improved. He was confident that my menstrual cycle would eventually even out and encouraged me when I had given up on that possibility, and thus, had given up on ever conceiving my own child naturally. About one year later, I had regained my menstrual cycle and a few month after that, I was surprised to find that I was pregnant! Amazing! And not only did I become pregnant, I had a healthy pregnancy and just recently have given birth to a beautiful and perfect 10-pound baby girl! I could not ask for more. I am so grateful for the care of Dr. Garcia who has truly found his calling. He is a cut above the rest and he genuinely cares about his patients’ overall health and wellness. Thank you, Dr. Garcia!
Dr. Garcia basically saved my life.
When I ruptured 3 vertebrae, and couldn’t move, our family doctor recommended immediate surgery. Dr. Garcia worked with me, got me back on my feet, and continued to coach me through a complete, personal rehab program, which included adjustments, exercise, massage, diet and physical therapy. Working with the Egoscue method, I am virtually back to 100%. I can’t thank, or recommend, Dr. Garcia enough. He’s simply amazing!
I lost 18 lbs; my blood results are great; my cholesterol is normal; my triglyceride level is normal; my blood sugar has improved; I feel great.
I heard about Dr. Garcia from a friend. She was very pleased with her results. My doctor was concerned with my blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar. I was given high blood pressure medication; however, as a result of the blood pressure medication I had been experiencing headaches and my throat felt very dry no matter how much water I drank. Since I started the treatment with Dr. Garcia I have lost 18 lbs. and my blood results are great. My cholesterol is normal, my triglyceride level is normal; my blood sugar has improved. I feel great. My headaches are gone! Dr. Garcia is very pleasant to talk to. He does not rush you during the appointment, he listens and addresses the problem. I am very happy with his treatment. Thank you Dr. Garcia.
