| Next Generation

Jay Joshi, MD

Through patient advocacy for the right care, and through the multiple firsts that I have had an honor to be a part of, I have been humbled to find myself being a leader of the next generation of providers.

Typical Day “My typical day at work is, like many other practitioners, nonstop! Between seeing patients, documenting in the chart, answering messages and phone calls, paperwork and prior authorization requests, and running the business side of the practice, there is no time for rest. The work doesn’t stop on the weekend or at night either. But knowing that you are making a positive transformation in someone’s world makes the thrill of the physician lifestyle worth it.”

Persona “There is an old saying that you can lead, follow, or get out of the way. I’m not going to follow the errors of the previous generation. I have no plans to get out of the way of progress and innovation.”

Social Media Habits “I stay current on what is going on in the world today, including healthcare, science, technology, social issues, popular culture, and of course the social media feeds of the National Pain Centers.”

Contribution “I’ve always been an advocate for facts and the truth. Medicine has been practiced with stereotypes, egos, lies, and corporate malfeasance for years. Through patient advocacy for the right care and through the multiple firsts that I have had an honor to be a part of, I have been humbled to find myself being a leader of the next generation of providers.”

People “I admire people who are intelligent, intellectual, visionaries, creative, talented, and able to create something from scratch. I admire people who are the first in the world to accomplish something special. I know the hard work, courage, planning, and luck that those achievements involve.”

Words “Anything that involves facts, science, and peaceful philosophies.”

Popcorn “Contact (1997) is a great movie pinning science vs religion, fact vs ignorance, intellectual curiosity vs fear. Issues from 2 decades ago are still relevant today.”

PAINWeek “It is broad based, multifaceted, and nonpartisan. It’s not cliquey like some other conferences. Participants can learn about a variety of topics. In some cases, there may be conflicting opinions, which is not a bad thing. It allows for the facts to emerge.”
