Joe Llenos, MD, board certified in family medicine, is now seeing patients at Homer Medical Center. Dr. Llenos 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 earlier this month 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. His winning essay on the importance of dark skies is featured in saveastar.net, Astro2021 competition.
Dr. Llenos was impressed with the type of patient care he saw last year during a site visit to SPH and Homer Medical, saying it is a personal approach not offered in larger healthcare systems.
Homer Medical Center is adding new providers to ensure seamless care for our patients in preparation for the transition of Dr. Christy Martinez and Dr. Sarah Roberts to full time inpatient hospital care in October.
Appointments are now being scheduled with Dr. Llenos or any of our providers by calling (907) 235-8586. Information on all of our providers can be found under the Provider Tab above. New patients are welcome.
