I have been practicing as a physician assistant since 1995 and joined Dr. Johnson in 2013. I love biology and have always loved learning about the human body. I wanted to work with people and help them learn about health. I am always learning and I feel like I really make a difference in people’s lives. I enjoy helping to empower people to take better care of themselves.
I am very casual and comfortable with all types of people. I like explaining the human body and the way it works. I am very much into disease prevention and prefer to use minimal medications when they are appropriate. I like working with other health practitioners to help people achieve health. I believe people are more than lab work, and I approach people as holistically as possible.
I want to give all my patients the knowledge and the power to take control of their health in a way that is understandable and compassionate. I love listening to my patients and am not judgmental, because people need to be heard and not interrupted. We all have a story to tell and I see it as my job to listen to and gently guide that story so that I can offer the best help.
I am very much into green living, recycling, growing food, and raising chickens for eggs. I enjoy learning how to build and create alternative ways of living. Volunteering as medical support for events, including the Special Olympics, is one of my favorite activities. I also love camping, hiking, biking, and traveling.
I’ve always had a wonderful experience working with Dr Johnson and all of his staff. He’s been my primary care physician for 6+ years now, and I’ve continued to have a great experience with the PAs since he’s changed his practice structure. I’m staying forever. Thanks Dr. Johnson and team. – RC
He is respectful and empathetic and, at the same time, will not shy from telling you the hard news. He isn’t afraid to try new things, but he also doesn’t just load you up with fancy new medicines and send you out the door. If you go to Dr. J and have a complicated health issue, he will give you a REAL treatment plan; we’re talking nutrition counseling, genetic testing, environmental sensitivity testing, holistic supplements, etc. – ZC
Dr.Johnson is AWESOME; he really has a way about him that was welcoming for a new patient. He spoke of the “why” behind his approach and made sure I was educated for each item we reviewed. I look forward to being a long time patient and encourage others to do the research you just may discover he fits your needs. – MP
