Joe Llenos, MD, board certified in family medicine, grew up in the Philippines, went to medical school at West Visayas State University, and did his Residency at The Institute for Family Health, New York. He has a particular interest in geriatric care but is ready to help patients of all ages manage chronic illnesses like diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, and more. His approach is to partner with his patients to set and reach goals to optimize their health through lifestyle changes with the support of medical assistance as needed.
Dr. Llenos and his wife, Cindy, moved to Homer in 2022 from Idaho, where he spent 13 years practicing family medicine. Healthcare and helping others run in the family, as Cindy is a nurse, and their son is in his third year of medical school in Ohio.
When not caring for others, the family enjoys hiking, mountaineering, climbing, and all things in the great outdoors. Dr. Llenos especially enjoys landscape and night sky photography. His images emphasize the importance of nature, the night sky, and how important it is to minimize light pollution, as it disrupts biological rhythms. His photography can be seen on Instagram at Ancient_Fog_Photgraphy.
