Pronouns: He | Him | His

Dr. Joshua Braslow is a family medicine doctor who cares for patients of all ages. He has special interests in chronic disease management, preventive medicine and population health (an approach to care that helps groups of people at higher risk of certain health conditions). He performs procedures including steroid injections for trigger finger and certain types of knee and shoulder pain; cryosurgery to remove precancerous lesions, warts and skin tags; and women's health services, such as Pap smears and IUD placement and removal. He is also experienced in managing wounds and placing sutures.

Braslow earned his medical degree at New York Medical College and completed a residency in family medicine at the University of California, San Diego. While in medical school, he worked to promote the family medicine specialty and was selected by the faculty and his peers for induction into the Gold Humanism Honor Society.

Before going to medical school, Braslow earned a degree in filmmaking at Brown University and worked on documentaries in New York City. His exposure to health disparities and other social injustices through this career sparked a desire to work in medicine, with the goal of more directly helping individuals and communities. Prior to joining UCSF, he worked for Stanford Health Care.

Originally from a small town in upstate New York, Braslow enjoys exploring California with his wife, who is also a doctor, and their dog, Astra. He is a fan of tennis, film, hiking, board games and concerts.

    Dr Braslow was very friendly and helpful but he did seem rushed for time at the end of my appointment. Maybe he needs to have a bit fewer appointments per day?

    I changed PCPs due to my prior PCP leaving the SM practice. This was my first meeting with Dr. B. He was kind efficient and looked in depth into my chart. He was down to business which I do not mind. Asked all relevant questions but no small talk.
