What We Do
We provide healthcare solutions for our communities, connecting you with black doctors and other health resources:
Why We Exist
Only about 6% of physicians/surgeons in the United States are black
9 health conditions within the black population result in a higher death rate than other races
Numerous studies have shown black patients benefit from seeing a black doctor
The Need for Access to Black Doctors
With the overwhelmingly skewed statistics of chronic disease in the African-American community, not to mention proven racial bias against black patients, it is a significant benefit to the overall health of the African-American population to have access to black doctors.
This is why we are here.Find a Doctor

“...I appreciate your efforts and cause for the community!"
Eric S. Ward, MD
“Black Doctors Ohio connects African-American physicians to the community and to each other in a unique and exciting way that empowers us all. This resource will improve the level of health care access and delivery in our community.”
George Barnett, MD
“With the additional resources and support offered by Black Doctors Ohio, I feel that we have an excellent opportunity to create a network that will not only benefit the African-American health care professionals, but our communities as well.”
Gina Love-Walker, MD
“It is very helpful to have a centralized site for those seeking the medical services of an African-American health care provider. It has been my experience that a number of patients desire care from a health professional who shares some of their cultural experiences and can more personally relate to their health challenges and experiences. Black Doctors Ohio is a valuable resource for patients in the community, and can be a helpful tool for clinicians as well.”
George Calloway, Jr, MD
“I have seen the unfair treatment that African-American patients have received, often being served in a patronizing and condescending way. I feel what Black Doctors Columbus Ohio has done in creating this network of African-American doctors is impacting the manner in which our community is being served. BDCO is facilitating the ability for us to provide the level of care that African-Americans deserve to receive.”
Larry DeVese, DDS
“My experience as a member of Black Doctors Ohio has created definitive exposure for my dental practice and has assisted us in acquiring new patients.”
