“I truly love participating in a team approach with patients and appreciate the opportunity to share in the professional physician/patient relationship,” Johnson said. “I enjoy celebrating their triumphs, undertaking diagnostic challenges, participating in educational moments, supporting and encouraging them through complex, chronic or difficult times, to ultimately create together the best state of wellness possible.”

Johnson performs physicals, pre-operative exams, acute visits, and other outpatient internal medicine clinical activities. She has a special interest in adult medicine, preventative medicine, and health maintenance.

Johnson was raised in Iowa, and practiced nursing before earning an osteopathic medicine degree from Des Moines University.

Along the way, she developed an interest in holistic medicine, and received additional training in nutritional therapy, herbalism, and other non-western modalities.

“Internal medicine allows me to integrate care of the different body organ systems, which is consistent with my patient care philosophy,” Johnson said.

She participated in the internal medicine residency program at the University of Minnesota from 2004 to 2007. Other locations where Johnson has practiced internal medicine include Glencoe and Shakopee.
