Dr. James Yost, Chief Medical Officer at CRH Healthcare

An Emory alum with 30 years of healthcare  experience and 17 years as a practicing physician, Dr. Yost cares deeply about the patient experience, inside and outside our centers. Starting this year, Dr. Yost will be answering our patients’ most common questions through MD Insights, with practical and trustworthy advice.

A note from Dr. Yost:

Hi reader! This is Dr. Yost speaking. Thank you so much for your genuine interest in our company and in the fun topics I’ve been exploring through our MD Insights series. Your engagement means the world to me, and I truly appreciate your time and effort in reaching out with your questions. Serving as Patriot Urgent Care's Chief Medical Officer, I’m kept busy ensuring our centers all over Maryland are offering exceptional care. I want to ensure transparency and set realistic expectations, so please know that while I may not be able to respond to each question individually due to the volume we receive, I promise that every single one will be read. Every question helps me better understand what our patients are interested in learning about, and I will use them to guide which topics I continue to write on. Your support is what drives us, and we look forward to serving you better with each passing day!
