- Professor and Chair, Department of Family and Community Medicine
Philosophy of Care
I enjoy providing care across the full spectrum of family medicine, including care of children, adolescents and adults of all ages, and outpatient surgical procedures.
My goal is to provide comprehensive, evidence-based medical care to all of my patients, in a manner guided by their values, preferences and health goals.
Dr. Jerant is a family physician offering full spectrum care to patients across the life span.
One of Dr. Jerant's main research interests is to seek ways of improving the care of common debilitating health conditions. A major focus of this work is to develop and evaluate approaches to increasing patients' participation and choices in their own care.
