Meet Dr. Joseph Geffen

Meet Dr. Joseph Geffen

VIPcare has a new provider alert. That’s right, we’ve added Dr. Joseph Geffen to our family and long list of caring providers. Dr. Geffen is helping out in our primary care clinic in Clermont until our Ocoee clinic is up and running. We’re excited to have him join our mission of achieving Better Health.

Dr. Geffen is board-certified in internal medicine with clinical specialties in wound care and geriatrics.

“I love primary care because it’s a bit of everything, and “a bit of everything” is what I like,” he said. “I love being well-rounded enough to help a wide variety of people while simultaneously having the time to get to know the patients over years.”

Who is Dr. Joseph Geffen?

Dr. Geffen is originally from Savannah, GA, and was born into a family of doctors. His father is a family practitioner, and his mother is a clinical psychologist, both of whom continue to practice currently.

“Growing up, I always admired the work my parents do as healthcare providers,” Dr. Geffen said. “The way they are able to help people is inspirational.”

However, Dr. Geffen had other interests at a young age and pursued a career in the music industry for a few years. He is a skilled musician and plays several instruments, including the piano and guitar, and he even used to DJ electronic music.

The Transition From Music To Medicine

His love for music never wavered, but his desire to connect with and help people appeared to be more suited for the medical industry. While in college, Dr. Geffen became an emergency medical technician and witnessed firsthand the power of medicine and applied science. This helped him realize that medicine was his true calling. Consequently, he switched career paths and headed to Florida for medical school.

After earning his degree and entering private practice, Dr. Geffen was approached to help out at the local wound care center. This allowed him to expand his skill set and an opportunity he jumped at.

“It was a great experience to see wounds heal and solve problems in addition to disease management,” he said. “It was very fulfilling to help people close these debilitating wounds, which had sometimes been ongoing for years.”

Dr. Geffen is excited to be joining VIPcare. “One of the things I love about being a doctor is having the opportunity to bond with patients, educate them about health, and provide counseling for long-term positive lifestyle changes,” he said. “I feel VIPcare is revolutionary in that they will provide me with resources to be successful in what drew me to medicine in the first place: doctoring.”
