About Joshua Penfield, MD

Appointments for Sharp Rees-Stealy Gastroenterologists are by referral from a Sharp Rees-Stealy primary care physician only. At the age of 4, I was in a car accident after being hit by a drunk driver and spent a long time in the hospital recovering from a head injury. This experience and the years that followed definitely fostered my interest in medicine as both an art and a science. My philosophy of care is to listen and put the needs of the patient first while doing so with empathy and compassion. I do not see patients as diseases or conditions but as people who have a wealth of personal experience and interesting stories, and whom I can learn from. My philosophy in practicing the science of medicine is to provide the best care possible using literature, data and evidence to support the medical decisions I make. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, long-distance running and hiking.

Dr. Penfield was amazing! This was my 1st appointment with him. He was extremely friendly, listened, and made me feel validated and prioritized. With him running behind schedule, I feared the doc would be rushed, but that wasn't the case at all! Very pleased with my experience and would 100% recommend him!!
