LONDON, Ky. (Oct. 31, 2023) – CHI Saint Joseph Medical Group – Family Practice in London welcomes Jarred Jones, MD, back to the Bluegrass State and into its family practice team. Dr. Jones, a native of London, brings a deep commitment to improving the health and well-being of the community he grew up in. Dr. Jones has a unique perspective on health care, which is deeply rooted in his family’s own experiences and his desire to prevent avoidable health problems.
“I had some sick family members growing up, and they felt they weren’t listened to,” said Dr. Jones. “I wanted to be able to do my best to help people in the way that I want to be treated. I also really want to focus on improving people’s health in a preventable way. I work on weight management and getting people to quit smoking and help make sure they avoid some of those problems.”
With a background in neuroscience and a deep commitment to a holistic approach to health care, Dr. Jones aims to provide comprehensive, holistic and preventive care. He is dedicated to discussing options for his patients beyond just medication.
“If somebody does want to talk about options for diabetes, I could talk about dietary changes or exercises, ways to improve sleep and mood, and keeping their mind sharp,” said Dr. Jones.
Dr. Jones’s commitment to improving health care goes beyond the office. He actively engages with the community to understand their health care needs and fosters an atmosphere of trust.
“I just want to be somebody from this area that people know they can trust and will listen to all their concerns – someone who works with them to solve their health issues,” he said.
Dr. Jones is a graduate of Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, and received his Doctor of Medicine from the University of Kentucky. He completed his residency at Mercy Health – St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima, Ohio. Dr. Jones’s background includes a role as a certified nursing assistant, providing direct patient care to disabled patients and building strong relationships with nursing staff. His research experience and publications demonstrate his commitment to patient well-being, delving into patient-provider interactions regarding chronic pain management.
Dr. Jones’s accolades include awards for community leadership, and his experience on medical committees, coupled with his community service initiatives, showcase his dedication to improving accessibility and the holistic well-being of the community.
Dr. Jones said he is thrilled to be part of the team at CHI Saint Joseph Health, which he has always regarded as a pillar in the community. He said he enjoys being able to once again be close to friends and family in the area.
