About Jazel Sambo, FNP-BC

Jazel Sambo, NP, is a board-certified family nurse practitioner at UC San Diego Health's Express Care. She provides high-quality care to patients of all ages with simple injuries, like sprains and strains, and minor illnesses, such as upper respiratory infections, urinary tract infections (UTIs) and COVID-19 or flu-like symptoms. In addition, she provides wellness services, such as vaccinations, blood pressure checks, physical exams for sports or school clearance, medication refills, sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and treatment, and gynecological care, like pregnancy testing and birth control prescriptions.

Ms. Sambo's approach is to ensure her patients feel cared for and heard. She knows the time spent with patients is valuable, so her goal is to provide the best patient-centered care and treat patients as if they were her own family. Ms. Sambo finds it rewarding when her patients are able to stay safe and healthy at home with their loved ones and out of the hospital.

In addition to UC San Diego Health, Ms. Sambo is an internal medicine family nurse practitioner at a private clinic, where she provides comprehensive and preventive medical care to a low-income community. She is honored to give assessments, accurate diagnoses, effective treatments and essential education to her patients and their families.

Ms. Sambo earned her master's degree in nursing from California State University, San Marcos and her bachelor's degree in nursing from San Diego State University. She is certified by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

Outside of work, Ms. Sambo enjoys gardening, hiking, yoga, singing karaoke and playing ukulele. She also practices the martial art, Kendo, which is traditional Japanese fencing using bamboo swords. For more than six years, she has trained regularly with her husband and they both spar, compete and serve as assistant instructors. Ms. Sambo is fluent in speaking, writing and reading Tagalog, too.
