Provider Bio

About the Provider

Dr. Johnson spent his childhood in Montana on a cattle and horse ranch. He is a magna cum laude graduate of Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Montana where he received his undergraduate degree in biology. After attending medical school at the University of North Dakota, Dr. Johnson did his specialty training in obstetrics and gynecology at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Though Dr. Johnson liked Ann Arbor very much, the urge to move back west prevailed and he is delighted to be a part of Women's Healthcare Associates. Though he enjoys all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Johnson is particularly interested in advanced laparoscopic surgery and infertility. In his spare time, he enjoys outdoor activities including cycling, running, rock climbing and all varieties of snow sports.
