Dr. Jonathan L. Goss is a doctor, scientist, and entrepreneur. He is a native of Houston, Texas, a graduate of Morehouse College and Emory School of Medicine, and a former resident student at Ohio State University School of Emergency Medicine.
Dr. Goss sums up his life philosophy from Dr. King’s famous quote, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is ‘What are you doing for others?’.” Born with a servant’s heart, he chose medicine as the field to apply his passion for helping others. Even as far back as middle school, he displayed his desire to serve when his teachers reprimanded him for being out of his seat trying to help others. From those early days until now, Dr. Goss has demonstrated his ability to think outside the accepted parameters to improve the quality of life of others.
He believes that being a physician takes more than just competency. As a physician, he understands that to create a positive and lasting impact, each patient deserves and desires compassionate care. The bigger the health crisis, the more compassion healthcare professionals need to offer.
During his role as an emergency care physician during the COVID-19 pandemic, he witnessed weeks of endless lines of people waiting desperately for tests. Then, the patients had to wait several days, and sometimes more than a week, for results. He desired to create a solution to the problem. So, Dr. Goss launched Emergent Testing, which included testing centers and a laboratory to provide quick and accurate test results.
He developed EmergentNOW, a telehealth service designed to give patients access to quality healthcare anywhere. His desire to help others led to a successful and growing brand of innovative healthcare companies designed to meet patient needs and support healthcare providers with proven and practical solutions.
Dr. Goss feels blessed to work in a field where each day, he has the opportunity to improve the lives of others through trusted healthcare products and services.
