Dr. Petrie, Joe’s sister and his inspiration for pursuing a career in the medical field, graduated from the University of Washington School of Medicine in 1998. She has held faculty positions at the Family Medicine Residency of Idaho and the University of Minnesota School of Medicine.
She currently owns/operates a robust family medicine practice (Emmett Family Medicine & Direct Primary Care) in Emmett, ID.
Joe has practiced medicine since 2013 specializing in Urgent Care medicine. He opened Gem Express Care in 2016 and serviced the Emmett, Idaho area with a walk-in clinic. After moving to Central Idaho with his family, he decided to develop a telemedicine program servicing the entire state of Idaho.
He has a passion for helping patients save money and for providing rural/underserved areas with quality healthcare. When he is not online helping patients, you may find him covering shifts at the clinics in Salmon or Stanley, ID.
