Dr. Jason R. Baynes was named the medical director of the Soul Focus Wellness Center. Dr. Baynes is a New Jersey native who is excited to expand his medical practice to Southern New Jersey.
Dr. Baynes grew up in Bergen County, NJ and remained in New Jersey for college where he attended Princeton University, graduating with a degree in molecular biology. He then went on to graduate from Yale University School of Medicine with many honors, the most important being a successful orthopedic match into the Mt. Sinai Medical Center Orthopedic Residency Program in Manhattan. After training under some of the best orthopedic surgeons in New York City, Dr. Baynes did a one year arthroscopic and sports medicine fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania to broaden his knowledge and deepen his understanding of the workings of the musculoskeletal system.
Dr. Baynes believes the best way of maintaining a healthy musculoskeletal system is through proper nutrition, exercise and overall self-care. He feels that as the medical director of a revolutionary medical spa and wellness center, he can ensure that the patients who visit the facility will receive the best of all three.
In addition to his passion for healthy living through his medical practice, Dr. Baynes is involved with many philanthropic causes that promote the same concept. His passion for working with children has led him to be a board of directors’ member of the YMCA of Greater Bergen County; for the last two years, Dr. Baynes has been the chairperson of the board at the Y. He is also a member of the Advisory Board for the NJIT Center for Pre-College Programs. He fills his craving for the arts by serving on the Advisory Board of Sidra Bell Dance NY, a non-profit modern dance company based in New York City.
Dr. Baynes hopes to meet all of our patients who enrich their lives at the Soul Focus Wellness Center.
