I’m Dr. Josh, and I am honored to be entrusted with your care. As someone who found it difficult to be myself with doctors, it is really important to me that everyone is able to find a healthcare provider that they can feel comfortable and honest with. Because of this, I sought to learn from the best at Montefiore Medical Center, Fenway Health, and directly from the trans community. Since then, I have worked on LGBTQ quality improvement projects at primary care clinics, provided care with Planned Parenthood, and created curriculum to teach new primary care doctors how to provide care to the trans community. In addition to gender affirming care, I am an HIV and sexual health specialist. My experience has taken me across the country, and it’s given me a unique insight on challenges patients have just to get health care based on where they live. It has also taught me not to take living out and proud for granted. It is my commitment that I will continue to listen and learn from the trans community.
When I’m not with patients, I enjoy making music, playing tabletop games, and cooking for my family – right now that consists of a partner, a dog, several ducks, chicken, and quail, and a robo-vacuum named Alberta. When things get tough, I remember a quote from a great drag queen: “Everything works out in the end. If it’s not working out, it’s not the end.
