MAYWOOD, IL –  Jasmine Walton, MD, a family medicine and primary care physician who treats a range of conditions, has joined Loyola Medicine.
 
As a family medicine and primary care doctor, Dr. Walton treats patients from 1 to 100.

Providing personalized care and building an intimate connection with each patient is what Dr. Walton attributes to successful patient relationships.

 
"It starts with listening," said Dr. Walton."It would be a disservice if I did not listen to my patients as my patients know themselves best."   
 
Dr. Walton will see patients at the Loyola Center for Health on Roosevelt.
 
Before joining Loyola Medicine, Dr. Walton provided care to both pediatric and geriatric patients.
 
For Dr. Walton, treating the whole person is crucial in achieving the best results for the patient.
 
"I treat the patient holistically," said Dr. Walton. "I take everything into account starting from where you are from, where you are now and where you want to be."
 
Dr. Walton instructs patients on how diet and health work in tandem to approve overall health. "I always touch base on what the diet looks like at home," Dr. Walton said. "How do we keep you healthy if you are already, and if not, how do we get you there?"
 
Dr. Walton earned her medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine in Portsmouth, Dominica. She completed a residency and fellowship in family medicine at Cook County-Loyola Family Medicine Residency Program.
 
Dr. Walton is board certified by the American Board of Family Medicine. She is an assistant professor in the department of family medicine of Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine.
