Dr. Tomlinson spent much of his career as an emergency physician in California’s Central Valley—one of the most medically underserved areas of the state—which brought him face to face with the effects of health disparities. His experiences as a Jamaican Canadian, an immigrant to the U.S., and a basketball coach to underprivileged youth also inspired him to work for social and healthcare justice.
“I am proud and humbled to be recognized with this honor by Fierce Healthcare” says Dr. Tomlinson. “This is truly a testament to the amazing team I work with every day, who are as committed as I am to bring more accessible care to our communities nationwide. The hallmark of our work is putting the patient first, and it’s due to the inclusivity of our culture that we’re able to meet the needs of our patients where and when they need care.”
Dr. Tomlinson shares his vision as a prolific writer, podcast guest, and panel participant. His recent appearances include a Becker’s panel discussion on making healthcare equity a reality and a video podcast where he dives into his motivations and passions.
