JEFFREY B. JOHNSON, M.D.
Why I Became an OB/GYN:
I was fortunate to have had a very remarkable mother. She was the daughter of a small town family practice doctor and the youngest of 6 daughters. She became widowed as a young mom of 4 (including me) and eventually remarried and had 5 more children. She was a teacher by profession. There were no limits to her energy, optimism, kind actions and words. Her example and loving support throughout my life convinced me there was no higher ambition than to serve women especially during times of health challenges and vulnerability. I remain dedicated to that purpose and strive to honor her and her example in my practice and to treat those entrusted to my care as I would like my mother (wife, sister, daughter) to be treated.
The mission and focus of my practice is based on my firm belief that all women deserve care that is highly skilled and comprehensive while remaining individualized and compassionate. It is my privilege to serve as your physician and to be able to develop and maintain a supportive and trusting relationship. I am pleased to have been consistently acknowledged as a quality Ob/Gyn physician with one of the lowest primary Caesarian section rates based on the responses from the Patient Satisfactory Surveys. These surveys are sent to patients who I have admitted or treated at St Alexius Medical Center/Women and Children’s Hospital. I am proud that these survey results validate my mission and energize me to continue to focus on the patient and her best interest.
