Christian Ibarra, Medical Assistant

Christian Ibarra, Medical Assistant, Premium Care Internal Medicine

Christian was motivated to pursue a career in the medical profession because it’s a great match with her strong desire to help people. She joined Dr. Baker’s team in 2002 after graduating from the Santa Barbara Business College Medical Assisting Program.

It’s unlikely that you will see Dr. Baker without passing through Christian’s capable hands first. She checks in all patients and records their vitals. She performs all procedures in the back office, reviews and processes all results, and coordinates all prescriptions. She regularly receives compliments on her gentle way of giving injections, which is practically painless.

She was born and raised in Goleta, and is a devoted mother to three boys. Christian’s small family is very close and tops her priority list.
