Congratulations To Our 2021 EMA Director Spotlight of the Quarter!

Our EMA Director of the Quarter is Martin Carrillo, MD!

Med School: UC Davis Medical School
Residency: LA County - USC EM Chief Resident

Dr. Martin Carrillo was born and raised in San Jose, California, with seven sisters and three brothers. He joined EMA in 1996 and is the Director of Chino Medical Center and Montclair Hospital Medical Center.

EMA affords him the time and flexibility to enjoy his personal life, he says. Dr. Carrillo's work in emergency medicine gives him the opportunity to see all, do all. "We are the 'jack of all trades, master of none.’” His decision to go into medicine was motivated by his brother who was becoming a pediatrician and his high school experiences working in an elderly community complex. "My parents were my role models who were genuinely good, empathetic people who took care of and gave to their community," he says.

Outside of work, Dr. Carrillo says he likes to "exercise, play basketball, drink beer and wine, work in my garden, raise my dogs (and kids I guess), hang with family, play board games, travel, road trip, and EAT!" He and his wife of 25 years have a daughter going into Vet School and a son in college studying Physical Therapy/Sports Focus. Now in quarantine, Dr. Carrillo is grateful to be able to spend more time with his family.
