Amber Jones is pleased to be part of the OSF HealthCare Medical Group – Primary Care team in Pontiac. “The staff is family focused, professional, caring and great to work with,” she said. “I love the Values and Mission of OSF HealthCare and the sisters’ dedication to the Ministry.”
She was drawn to medicine while in high school.
“We were researching careers … my parents were ill and had surgery during this time, so I saw firsthand what medicine looked like and I wanted to be part of it,” Amber said. “I love the caring aspect of treating people and to explain what is happening to them. I love the procedures.”
Specializing in family medicine was an easy decision for Amber. “I love treating kids and adults, so this office is a good fit for my work-life balance,” she said. “I’m getting to hold babies, play with kids and diagnose and educate adults.”
When providing care, Amber looks at the whole person from preventive care to acute and chronic conditions. “I help them manage their condition and improve it where they can through education and empowering and equipping them to better care for themselves.”
When not working, Amber stays busy with her three children and their activities – music, soccer, track and cross country. She coaches and referees grade school-age children in basketball. She enjoys playing in a volleyball league through her church, watching and playing many sports, cross-stitching and traveling. She is a Chicago Cubs and Dallas Cowboys fan.
She hopes to attend the Olympics someday. Traveling to Hawaii, Paris, London and Australia are also some of her bucket-list items.
