Zena Joseph, MD is a member of Summit Health’s Family Medicine team. She treats both adults and children for a wide range of medical issues, but most enjoys focusing her expertise on women’s health and pediatrics. Dr. Joseph originally pursued a career in health care because she believes a life of service is truly fulfilling and enriching. She wants to be an advocate for our most vulnerable populations and for her that was best achieved through practicing medicine.
Dr. Joseph’s philosophy on patient care is to “look at the relationship between a doctor and patient as being a two-way street. You cannot develop rapport without trust and you cannot trust each other unless you listen to the patient. I always try and ask open-ended questions and validate patients when appropriate”, she says.
Developing long-standing doctor/patient relationships is very important to her as well as watching her pediatric patients grow into adolescence and adulthood. Dr. Joseph loves to see her patients thrive and become interesting individuals apart from their parents.
When not practicing medicine, she is a foodie and enjoys traveling to the best restaurants around the world. Dr. Joseph also sings, plays piano and supports her children in their after-school activities. She is also passionate about vaccinations, preventative care and championing the LGBTQPOC community and promoting women’s health.
