Who We Are
Ashok K. Joshi, MD, Founder and President
Dr. Joshi has been providing personalized, quality care to his patients for decades – over a quarter century in private practice. After graduating from Brookline High School, Dr Joshi attended the University of Maryland and attended an accredited medical school in India. He continued residency training in Washington DC and was Board-Certified in Emergency Medicine. He relocated to Massachusetts in 1984 and practiced Emergency Medicine full-time for 10 years. As a member of the medical staff at Lowell General Hospital, he responded to a growing need for primary care practitioners by opening his internal medicine practice in Billerica in 1994, adding a second clinic in 1999 in Drum Hill, Chelmsford. In 2004, he decided to expand the Billerica office and consolidate both practices. In 2007, he acquired CBC Medical Center in Lowell to serve the needs of the Cambodian and Spanish-speaking communities. In 2014, the CBC Medical and Walk-In Center relocated to a larger, newer, facility – fully equipped and integrated with the Billerica practice.
His practice has grown from a single provider to five practitioners. He also served as Medical Director for several nursing homes and continues to provide coverage through the practice to several area facilities.
Dr. Joshi has been an active member of the medical staff at Lowell General Hospital for 25 years, a recognized name in the Greater Lowell healthcare community. He has worked with and/or trained many a young physician in this area.
Earlier, he served as teaching faculty at the University of Syracuse for residents of their medical training program. He continued teaching Emergency Medicine residents at North Shore Hospital, a teaching hospital. Dr. Joshi’s Practice has been accredited as a Clinical Preceptor Program for Nurse Practitioners at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell.
Dr. Joshi has a loyal following of patients and peers who respect his depth of clinical knowledge and his focus on coordination of care. He has a warm and engaging teaching style that empowers his patients to take charge of their health, with the benefit of his medical expertise.
Dr. Ashok K. Joshi, MD opened his medical clinic in September 1994 to serve the health care needs of Billerica and surrounding communities. This month marks the completion of two decades of continuous service in internal medicine and primary care. Over the years, the Billerica Medical Health Center he founded at 221 Boston Road has grown to accommodate community-specific needs.
Dr. Joshi applies the best practices in medicine to the care of his patients. He has expanded his clinical offerings to meet the changing needs of a growing patient population and distinguished himself as a leading primary care provider. At his core he believes that the best way to practice medicine is to combine state-of-the-art knowledge of issues affecting health care with personalized and innovative treatments for his patients. His natural flair for teaching has benefited his patients, staff, and hundreds of health care providers over the years.
