When you work at Northern California Medical Associates, you’ll be blessed with residing in one of the most-desirable regions in all of California — and beyond. Located about an hour’s drive north of San Francisco, Sonoma County stretches across three times the land area of nearby Napa County. “Can’t miss” aspects of the region include giant redwood trees, hills dotted with vineyards, and a 55-mile coastline.

Voted Frommer’s Readers’ Choice Award for the best place to travel to in 2020, Sonoma County is the central hub of the Northern California lifestyle. Within minutes you can experience world-class restaurants, elite wineries & craft breweries, renowned natural beauty, highly rated golf courses, more than a century of arts, horticulture and local history — without the impact of a high-density big city.


  • 50 miles from San Francisco
  • 35 miles from Napa Valley.
  • 30 minutes from the California coast.
  • 15 minutes from Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport (nonstop service to LAX, Las Vegas, Orange County, Seattle and more); less than 1.5 hours to major hubs: San Francisco International Airport, Oakland International Airport.

You can definitely get a small-town vibe in Sonoma County. The town of Sonoma has been hailed as one of the best small towns in America. Other area small towns to visit include Petaluma, Sebastopol, Healdsburg, Glen Ellen, Windsor, Bodega Bay and more. Further north in Mendocino County, the quaint town of Mendocino is a worthy destination on the coast. And of course, the world-famous Napa Valley (our neighbor to the east), boasts the beautiful towns of Calistoga, St. Helena, Yountville and Napa.

While the small-town vibe is real, Santa Rosa, the largest city in Sonoma County and the fifth-largest city in the greater Bay Area, boasts a population of more than 170,000. Most of Northern California Medical Associates’ practices are in Santa Rosa, but we’re proud to serve patients throughout Sonoma, Mendocino and Lake counties. You can find all of our locations in an interactive map on our Facebook page, or by searching by location on our website.
