Physician of the Week – Dr. JoAnne Rogers

cover5From the time she was four years old, Dr. JoAnne Rogers knew she wanted to be a doctor. 

A near-native Houstonian, Dr. Rogers has always had an insatiable desire to learn and help others.

Dr. Rogers graduated from Emory University in 1985 where she received a B.A. in both Biology and Psychology.  She received her Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree in 1989 from The University of Texas Medical School in San Antonio where she was involved with numerous extracurricular activities and organizations including: Texas Medical Association; American Medical Association (student division); Texas County Medical Association; Student National Medical Association; NFME Educational Research Project; and the Teen Medical Careers Awareness Workshop.

Dr. Rogers completed her postgraduate internship and residency in Family Medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas in 1993, and has additional training in Public Health from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston. Dr. Rogers is a Diplomat of the American Board of Family Practice, and received the distinction of Fellow by the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Dr. Rogers opened her private practice in 2000.  Prior to that time, she was an Associate Physician with University Medical Group/Avanti, Greenbriar Medical Associates, and OneCare Family Practice – all within a 3-mile radius of her current location.

In addition to tending to her patients, Dr. Rogers is active in numerous medical and charitable organizations. She is currently President of the Houston Academy of Medicine and is also Past President of the Houston Medical Forum.  In addition, she also holds several academic appointments with Baylor College of Medicine, University of Texas Medical Branch, and University of Texas Health Science Center.

Passionate about helping others, Dr. Rogers dedicates time away from the practice to participate in a variety of community projects and is extremely active in organized medicine.  Her personal interests include women’s health issues and preventive health, cooking, tennis, classical and jazz music, singing, skiing, travel, cultural events, and spectator sports.

When Dr. JoAnne Rogers opened the doors of Greenway Health & Wellness (formerly Greenway Family Practice) in 2000, her primary goal was to build a warm and comfortable Houston family practice that provided healthcare as individualized as her patients.  She wanted a practice that advocated for disease prevention and overall wellness as much as diagnosing, treating, and managing medical illnesses and conditions.

Since that time, Dr. Rogers has continued to reinforce and strengthen that philosophy by expanding the medical and wellness services provided in the family practice, and offering the latest aesthetics services and treatments. Bottom line, and why patients choose us, is that we provide an unparalleled level of service that isn’t found in today’s “typical” healthcare environment.  You’ll not only enjoy the benefits of receiving experienced, personalized, and comprehensive healthcare, you’ll also find it in one location convenient to The Galleria, West University, River Oaks, and Bellaire.

Dr. Rogers firmly believes the best approach to medicine and healthcare comes through understanding each patient as a whole — your unique lifestyle, situation, and needs.  What this holistic approach means for you is that we don’t apply a cookie-cutter approach to medicine, because no two people – or their circumstances – are alike.  We know it’s important to keep the individual in mind when making a diagnosis, recommending treatment, or performing any type of procedure.  That philosophy applies to everything from disease management to aesthetics treatments.  Because we feel this way, we truly listen to your needs and concerns, educate you on the diagnosis and treatment options that are right for you, and make sure you are comfortable during every step of the process.
