About Angela Nishio, MD
Angela Y. Nishio, MD, first entered the Maternity Ward of Saint John’s Health Center as a screaming nine-pound infant. Little did her parents know that she would end up back here to bring babies into the world for other parents. A love of science, combined with the desire to serve her community, as her parents had in their respective fields, brought her to the world of medicine.
Dr. Nishio feels immense gratitude toward her patients, who allow her to participate in one of life’s most intimate moments: childbirth. She is awed by the strength and resilience of the pregnant woman and decided to devote her professional life to helping babies arrive safely.
Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Dr. Nishio earned her medical degree from the Finch University of Health Sciences/Chicago Medical School in North Chicago, Illinois, and completed her internship and residency at the LAC & USC Medical Center in Los Angeles, California.
Dr. Nishio came to Saint John’s right after completing her residency. She recently took on a more prominent role when she became the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department Chair in 2016. She is currently the Medical Director of Women’s Health Services at Saint John’s Health Center. While she also enjoys fulfilling her patients’ gynecologic needs, ranging from Pap tests to pelvic surgery, maternity care remains her passion.
Dr Nishio is amazing. She listens, she understands and she knows the best things to prescribe for whatever issues you have. When I mentioned some issues I had recently she did an additional test to ensure everything was ok and that there were no hidden issues causing problems.Real Patient

Dr. Nishio was a pleasure to talk to. She was direct and answered all of my questions and concerns that I had. She had to perform a procedure and wanted to make sure that I was fully aware of what would happen and any discomfort that I might feel. She kept me talking throughout the entire procedure which kept me distracted to the point that I really didn't feel much discomfort at all.Providence Patient

Dr. Nishio is an amazing OB. She's the perfect balance of friendly and focused, I never have to wait long to see her, which means she's efficient, and I feel like she is extremely knowledgeable. I feel like I'm in good hands in her care.Providence Patient
For a general OBGYN, Dr. Nishio is amazing. I have since gone to see a specialist for my condition, and I found out the treatment that generalists are commonly informed to give to patients is ineffective and outdated. However, Dr. Nishio gave me information no one else in my life did before her and I will always be grateful.Providence Patient
I am pregnant with my first child. Dr Nishio has been absolutely amazing to me, as have all the staff at St John's. Whether its a nurse, front of house, or the porter who wheel-chaired me out to my husband, they have all been beyond amazing. So much so that we were looking to have our baby at UCLA but will now most definitely be having him or her at St John's. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.Providence Patient
