Dr. Chryshantha Joseph M.D.
I grew up in Sri Lanka. As a small child in a school founded by American missionaries , our class read about Florence Nightengale. I imagined myself carrying a candle and healing those in need. The blessings of life have enabled me to earn a medical degree and become trained and board certified in Internal Medicine in the United States. I've practiced medicine for over 25 years including 13 years serving as physician at the Veterans Administration. My dream had been realized :)
After the VA, I transferred to private medicine for a number of years. Caring for patients has always been deeply rewarding, however I have become increasingly frustrated with the amount of time and energy I have spent dealing with insurance hassles as it has become harder and harder for my patients to get the care that they need.
I see a Direct Primary Care Practice as a way to return to the roots of Primary Care. I want to have a Doctor-Patient relationship where patients know that I am working for them, not their insurance company. I want to be able to give patients the time that they need without making someone else wait. I want to be able to use technology to treat patients at their convenience rather than them being forced into an office for visits because that is the only way I am able to get paid by a third party.
