Dr. Josiah Strawser, MD

About Me

I am a doctor of the AHF Healthcare Centers: Westside & Redondo Beach. I am passionate about caring for patients living with HIV. Practicing HIV medicine is very rewarding as it allows me to work in a field of medicine that is complex and constantly evolving, while also giving me the opportunity to develop meaningful connections with my patients. I have a specific interest in general LGBTQ+ patient care and HIV preventive care.

Fun Fact: Music is my largest hobby outside of medicine. I studied music recording as a minor in my undergraduate years. I play the piano and sing, as well as record and produce music for fun.
