Kristian Borofka, DO 
Kristian Borofka, DO | Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, California

Kristian Borofka was born and raised in Clovis, California. She attended Santa Clara University and received a Bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry with a minor in Public Health. She worked as a student researcher while attending college, investigating the interplay between late effects of cancer treatment and quality of life in long-term cancer survivors. She then attended Touro University California in Vallejo to attend medical school. While she loved the Bay Area, she continually missed the Central Valley of California and was happy to return for residency. She chose to specialize in Family Medicine because she enjoys working with all stages of life and focusing on preventative care. She is interested in LGBTQ+, geriatric, and women’s health issues. Outside of medicine, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, knitting, exercising and swimming, and cooking.

Danny was born and raised in Sacramento, California. He received bachelor's degrees in Computer Science and Microbiology from the University of California, Davis. He worked as a programmer while attending college and also spent time volunteering at the UC Davis MIND Institute. This led him to develop a strong interest in the use of technology to improve medical care. He attended medical school at Touro University Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas. Missing Northern California, Danny decided to return to Sacramento for residency and specialize in Family Medicine. He chose Family Medicine because it would allow him to treat patients of all ages and provide them with full-spectrum care, including education and preventive medicine. He is also interested in medical informatics. Outside of medicine, Danny enjoys spending time with his family and friends, tennis, running, working with computers, and eating candy.

Family Medicine 2nd Year Resident Obzejta
Natalia Obzejta, MD | Poland Medical School

Natalia grew up in Southern California where the beach and tacos were almost a daily staple. She traveled up the coast to UCSB where she pursued a major in Chemistry. Loving the small beach town feel of Santa Barbara, she stayed after graduating and began working at Allergan as an Analytical Chemist. During her time there, Natalia was exposed to different aspects of the medical field. She worked closely with R&D to come up with ways to improve pharmacological products and interfaced with practicing physicians who shared their experiences. She eventually found herself wanting to be on the other side of the lab bench and decided to pursue her Medical Degree in Poland, where most of her family resides. Not only did she has the opportunity to re-connect with her extended family, she was also able to travel Europe and be exposed to medicine in another country. Although she greatly enjoyed her time in Poland, she concluded that there really is no place like home; she is extremely excited to be back in California to finish her Family Medicine residency. Natalia’s interests within Family Medicine include Functional and Lifestyle Medicine as well as Women’s Health and community outreach. In her free time she enjoys running, paddle boarding, yoga, cooking, baking and, of course, eating.
