Josie L. Tenore, M.D., M.Sc., is a board-certified family physician who became interested in aesthetics during medical school. As a result, most of her electives focused on dermatology and plastic surgery. Dr. Josie began her practice with family medicine because she enjoyed the challenge of delivering comprehensive health and well-being to people of all ages. This unique combination of family medicine and aesthetics led her to advocate a program of eating well, exercising and aesthetics for patients who want to have the best quality of life.
Dr. Josie completed her medical training at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Canada, in 1984. Her belief in continuing education to expand her knowledge and skills led Dr. Josie to receive training in varicose vein treatments in 1986, and chemical peels and skin care in 1988. In 1998, she earned a Master of Science in Public Health from Harvard University. This allowed her to work with world-renowned specialists and offer state-of-the-art medical care to her patients.
She also has a passion for educating others. Dr. Josie has taught at several medical schools: the University of Toronto (her alma mater); Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island; and Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois. In addition, she has authored many scientific articles in well-recognized medical journals.
Dr. Josie is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery and the National Society of Cosmetic Physicians.
