Biographical Information

Jose Abad, MD chose to specialize in Family Medicine because he wants to educate patients about the journey of wellness and sickness across a broad range of ages. He believes when you listen you will find the answer. He also believes that his patients should have choices when making a medical decision and share this decision making with him, but their autonomy is paramount to his medical advice. He has a significant trust that with support of medicine, the body is the best healer.

Dr. Abad continues to teach medical students and residents to remind himself how to be a learner. He has an interest in narrative medicine because our stories help us heal.
