Geoff Coleman, MD, MHA
Chief Medical Officer
Dr. Geoffrey Coleman attended the Georgia Institute of Technology (Mechanical Engineering) and Temple University School of Medicine in Philadelphia. His first residency training was in emergency medicine, an experience which persuaded him to pursue a career that allowed more hands-on patient contact. He decided to switch to family medicine and earned his board certification in this specialty. Dr. Coleman spent his first year of practice in Kenya and Sierra Leone, Africa. On his return to the United States he provided primary medical care for nine years on the Menominee Indian Reservation in Wisconsin. Moving east to be near family, he established a community health center in Montross, Virginia, providing primary and preventive healthcare, with regular house calls to patients. He continued his passion for direct patient care, and for home visits, when he moved into hospice work by starting a practice focusing on home visits and palliative care in 2004. He served as its medical director. Since 2007 Dr. Coleman has practiced hospice and palliative medicine exclusively. Dr. Coleman is certified in Hospice & Palliative Medicine and in Family Medicine.
