“I see each of my patients as an interesting and complex individual with his or her own unique story. It’s a privilege to help my patients with their health, and in any other way I can.”

Dr. Schlaerth has been practicing for 41 years, specializing in family medicine, women’s health, obstetrics, and geriatrics. As an experienced physician, mother of 7 grown children, and grandmother to 16, she is a family medicine expert in every sense of the word.

In addition to treating patients at PVHC, Dr. Schlareth lectures regularly at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. She also teaches physician assistants at Cal State University Bakersfield, and has lectured at Loma Linda University.

Dr. Schlareth is the author of the book, Raising a Large Family, and has appeared on Oprah and other television shows as an expert on the topic.
