James H. Ting, MD, FAAFP
An Illinois native, Dr. Ting spent his formative years growing up in Southern California, where he graduated from UCLA with a degree in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics. Following his undergraduate studies, Dr. Ting received his medical degree from the Medical College of Wisconsin. He subsequently returned to Southern California and completed his residency training at the UCLA-affiliated, Northridge Family Medicine Residency Program, where he was recognized as the program’s Outstanding Graduate Resident.

He also holds an appointment as a voluntary clinical instructor with the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.
As Newport Orthopedic Institute’s first Primary Care Orthopedic and Sports Medicine specialist, Dr. Ting brings with him several years of experience in providing care for both elite and recreational athletes of all ages.
“My goal, and what I enjoy most about being a Sports Medicine physician, is being able to help the injured athletes and patients that I treat return to their sport or activity as quickly, but as safely as possible.”
Dr. Ting has served on the medical staff for international events such as the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, as well as other events such as the Los Angeles Triathlon, the Long Beach Marathon, and several NCAA Conference Championships. He has been a team physician for local area high schools, colleges, and universities for many years, and he most recently has been serving as a team physician at the NCAA Division 1 level for the California State University, Northridge and the team physician for Sage Hill High School in Newport Beach, CA.
