Our Story:

If you miss the good old days where your doctor knew you and your whole family, you’ll be thrilled to join Independent Family Doctors. We view the patient-physician relationship as a team with a single focus to help you reach your healthcare goals.

We have noble ambitions at Independent Family Doctors, all of which revolve around giving you the most individualized care imaginable. We’re diligently working to change the face of family medicine to one that is uniquely focused on the patient.

Independent Family Doctors was opened in 2017 by Dr. Josh. Starting with just a handful of patients, he grew his patient panel over the years and is now looking to educate more of the community about the benefit of direct care.

Independent Family Doctors hopes to educate the community about health care choice. Our current patients would agree that the freedom of a membership based health plan empowers them to finally take care of their own needs, without waiting for approvals.

Meet the Team

Dr. Josh and Jane are phenomenal! We never feel rushed and we always know that they will listen to our concerns in full. We never worry about when we can get into the office as he often either sees us by the next business day or the issue is handled immediately over the phone. Our favorite aspect is the follow-through. If someone in the family has an issue, Dr. Josh periodically checks on us to see how we are progressing. We thank them for the excellent service and peace of mind!

Dr Josh is hands down the best Dr. I have ever seen in my life. You can call,text or make an appointment. He responds to your direct calls or text immediately. Or Jane will get in touch with you quickly. They both truly care about you. I have full blown medical insurance but I will always have Dr Josh in my corner.
