Jason Ly, DO
Physiatrist / Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physician
Jason Ly, DO, is a physiatrist at Coordinated Health, part of Lehigh Valley Health Network. He has been with Coordinated Health since 2018.
Previously, Dr. Ly practiced pain management and rehabilitation at the Seattle Pain Centers, Central Washington Rehabilitation, and CompHealth.
For Dr. Ly, the decision to become a physician came first through service to his community and finding what he was passionate about. "When it came time for me to decide where I was heading with my life, I decided to explore the medical field by volunteering at the local ER. While the environment of the ER was very chaotic, my experience was nothing short of amazing. It was extremely rewarding to be able to help care for others when they are at the most vulnerable moment. I knew then that I want to take more of a role in helping others. Medicine then felt like a natural path for me to take."
He was attracted to Coordinated Health because it is a multidisciplinary clinic. "I spent a lot of time after my residency in single-specialty private practice groups. The environment was very isolating and the business of medicine interfered with my ability to take care of my patients. There is an environment of cooperation at Coordinated Health. The services that I need for me to take care of my patients are in the same group and there is an open line of communication with physicians of other specialties. At Coordinated Health, I feel that I can get back to doing what I love to do: taking care of patients."
Dr. Ly has a holistic perspective when it comes to treating patients. "I have always felt that physicians should treat the whole patient, not just the symptoms. Pain is a complex condition by nature as I cannot feel what the patients are experiencing. Only by listening to my patients, examining them, reviewing their studies/imaging, will I be able to accurately pin down what is causing their pain. And only when a patient takes care of their mental health and physical health, can they then be on the road to recovery."
Dr. Ly is fluent in Vietnamese. He is professionally affiliated with the Spine Interventional Society, and, in addition to spinal intervention and rehabilitation, he has an interest in electrodiagnotsic medicine.
