Her experience spans both coasts and the Midwest. She did her residency at SUNY Upstate Medical Center in Buffalo, New York and graduated from Michigan State College of Human Medicine.
Dr. Penvose-Yi has adopted a humanistic care philosophy where the patient is valued as a whole and the time is taken to provide thoughtful, thorough healthcare. She has delivered well over 600 babies, but who’s counting? And when she isn’t caring for her patients, Jan keeps busy with three children of her own, keeping fit and pursuing her passion for greyhound rescue.
Dr. Penvose-Yi says “Despite the crazy hours, I love providing obstetric care and delivering babies. I especially enjoy getting to know my patients so that the delivery can be a great experience for them.”
