Jarret “Doctor Jarret” Patton MD has served thousands of children in eastern Pennsylvania for over 15 years.
Throughout his career as a pediatrician and Medical Director, he has remained an advocate for children’s health issues. Over time, his servant leadership style led him to curtail clinical practice to become a change agent in the healthcare system. As a former President of the Medical Staff at an 8 hospital system in eastern Pennsylvania he worked with other leaders to promote children’s health and health equity in a highly matrixed environment. Additionally, he has advised many regional and national committees for organizations including The Joint Commission, American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Hospital Association. Doctor Jarret spent his post medical training in various fellowships ranging from the Disparities Leadership Program at Massachusetts General Hospital to the Cultural Competency Leadership Fellowship with the Health Research and Educational Trust. He has published in the medical literature and contributed to books primarily in the areas of general pediatrics, cultural competency and health equity. His two solo books “Licensed to Live” and “Whose Bad @$$ Kids Are Those?” add further credibility to his expertise as a career coach and a pediatrician. He received a bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Xavier University of Louisiana and his medical degree from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. He completed his pediatric residency at New York University and Bellevue Hospitals. Doctor Jarret is the founder and CEO of DoctorJarret, PLLC, a firm which helps educate, enlighten, and improve healthcare. He does this through his books, coaching programs and public speaking.
