Brock Juffs, Medical Doctor at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field family medicine.
While initially wanting to become a teacher, Dr. Juffs interest in science grew stronger at the end of high school which began to change his trajectory. From there, he volunteered with St. John’s Ambulance and realized that a career in medicine was the right fit as it would be a constant challenge, keep him on his toes, and benefit the community. Upon his medical studies, he chose family medicine as his focus as it allows him to take care of people from birth until death and be an integral part of the health care community.
Since 2020, Dr. Juffs has provided his care and skills to treat patients as a medical doctor and hospitalist at Coffeyville Regional Medical Center. He previously worked among the pharmacy and therapeutics committee with the Our Lady of the angels at Louisiana State University Rural Family Medicine and as a part-time medical school standardized exam tutor for the MCCEE Tutoring Services. He prepared for a career in medicine by first earning a Bachelor of Science in biochemistry with a minor in mathematics with the Coop Option at the University of Ontario, with honors, cum laude, in 2012. From there, he earned an MD at the Trinity School of Medicine in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in 2017 and followed the degree with a residency in family medicine at Louisiana State University.
Dr. Juffs’ advice to others who want to enter the medical field is to make sure to find time for yourself as there needs to be a balance in your life. He looks forward to a long and rewarding career with the hope that he will be remembered as a doctor who is always open to new and efficient ways of doing things and providing a safe environment for his patients to communicate their needs and concerns. Dr. Juffs’ career highlight thus far has been becoming board certified in family medicine. In addition, he has published a book about statistics, which was on every exam, which explored the topic that doctors were bad in math and it resulted in issues. In five years, Dr. Juffs wants to bridge his medical expertise with his initial passion or teaching and work in a part-time academic role.
