Jodi Ritsch M.D.

Hello!  I am your Joyful Doc.

I am board certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine.  


I am also a mother of three daughters and a son. I’m a wife, a friend, the owner of a direct pay clinic, a Mindful Change life coach, a Laughter Yoga leader and a joyful potter.

For years, I have been on a journey to bring joy and balance to my own life and family as well as to the lives of others. I am excited to bring the region a caring, fun direct pay experience and thrilled that I can help more of you on your wellness journey through our membership model, “The Circle.” It’s a way to build that relationship with me and my team, so we can truly customize and help you as you carry out your health goals. It’s also an amazing way to make your routine health needs as easy as can be. You can learn more about “The Circle” here:

I have blended my education in wellness/family medicine and my natural warmth to help others tune into their own intuition and shift into heart-centered living.   I specialize in listening in appointments and by gathering women together to have fun, laugh and recover a lost piece of themselves along the way.

I always strive to make every day joy-filled and love to laugh.

Smile and then come visit me at The Joyful Doc Clinic today.
