Spending his professional years in an array of diverse sectors from finance to public health and medicine, Dr. Joseph is uniquely equipped to understand the needs of executive patients. His years spent forming relationships with indigent patients in inner city Detroit, underserved communities of the differently-abled in rural areas across the United States, and the Washington, D.C. elite have also greatly enriched his perspectives and have sharpened his interests in the anthropological, sociological, and spiritual dimensions of psychiatry.
Dr. Joseph was an early adopter of the telehealth model and personally understands its utility when traveling between residences himself. He respects telehealth’s unique ability to facilitate the person-to-person connection on a humane level.
Dr. Joseph believes that each person brings with them their own vanguard narrative and considers this when formulating a plan of treatment for his patients.
Dr. Joseph has appointments available on evenings and weekends.
“We need to be careful stewards of our money and the incentives we create for health. We need to do so from an informed position, keeping in mind the overall aim which isn’t necessarily treating the sick, but keeping people well.”
– Louis Joseph, M.D.
