About Dr. Jones

Dr. Joel Jones is a pediatric otolaryngologist at Children’s Hospital New Orleans. After earning his medical degree from Drexel University College of Medicine, Dr. Jones went on to complete residency training in otolaryngology head and neck surgery at the University of Kansas. He then went on to complete fellowships in Pediatric Otolaryngology at Children’s National and in Otology/Neurotology at Pittsburgh Ear Associates. He is board-certified in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery, and he sees patients at Children’s Hospital Main Campus, in Baton Rouge, and on the Northshore.

Dr. Jones chose to practice Pediatric Otolaryngology because he was fascinated by the anatomy of the head and neck and the ability to help restore or improve the function of our senses, particularly hearing and voice. He decided to devote his career to children after witnessing the courage and unexpected maturity of a young boy he was taking care of during medical training. Dr. Jones is a member of the medical honors society and also holds a Master of Business Administration from Drexel University. He has authored over 15 written publications on a range of topics in his specialty, including otitis media, airway anomalies, and pediatric head and neck tumors. He has lived in 8 states and is proud to call New Orleans home. Dr. Jones’ little extra that he brings to work with him every day is his motto: “positive vibes and patience”!
