About Dr. Kermit Jones
A doctor, Navy veteran, and attorney, Dr. Kermit Jones learned the value of hard work growing up and working on the family farm.

It was there that Kermit knew he wanted to become a doctor. Kermit was attending law and medical school at Duke University when our country was attacked on 9/11. Soon after, Kermit joined the Navy and deployed alongside Marines to Iraq. After returning from Iraq, Kermit used the GI Bill to study public policy at Columbia University and was selected by Obama as a White House fellow to work on health care and innovation in veteran’s health care. Afterwards he worked as a regulatory and patent attorney at a law firm, ensuring that new prescription drugs were safe and effective. He settled in Northern California with his wife and family and began working as a primary care physician.
