Jay S. Edmonds Jr., MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family physician, it is the caring, close, personal relationships that develop over a number of years that are the most meaningful and gratifying aspects of practice. Although times of illness and crisis can really bring a physician, patient and often the family together, my goals is to work with you to discover, articulate and ultimately reach your own personal wellness goals. With a personalized approach, I will work closely with you to utilize all available resources to optimize your physical and emotional health.

With over 28 years in the private practice of family medicine in the Monterey Bay area as well as being on staff at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula, I have developed a reputation as a caring, compassionate and knowledgeable family physician.

For those patients who have chronic conditions such as diabetes and hypertension, any wellness and prevention plan will require thoughtful attention to those issues. For many years I have had a special interest in diabetes care. I encourage all patients to stay active and have made physical activity and fitness an important part of my own wellness program.

In time, injury illness and age often require us to change or adjust our physical activities. Life circumstances can often challenge our emotional well-being. Together we can work through these challenges as we strive to live long and exceptionally well.
