Muncie, IN—Open Door Health Services would like to welcome Dr. Beena M. Joseph, a Board Certified Pediatrician with over 17 years of experience.

Dr. Joseph earned her MB.BS. (Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery) Degree from the PSG Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Bharathiar University in India. She then completed her residency at Colombia University College of Physicians and Surgery in New York, NY.

She has practiced in Logansport, Kokomo, Indianapolis, and Muncie during her career, but has been a Muncie local for over 18 years. Dr. Joseph spent some time as a Deputy Chief Medical Officer at Indiana Health Centers, but says she missed direct patient care. This led her back to caring for pediatric patients at Open Door.

When asked about her new adventure with Open Door she says, “I like the patient population. Not a lot of people want to work in a Federally Qualified Health Center, but I really enjoy it and the patients really need it. I am more satisfied in this work and feel like I am making an impact.”

Dr. Joseph’s office is located at 333 S. Madison St., Muncie, IN 47305. Call 765.286.7000 today to schedule an appointment.
