Karl K. Johsens, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Human beings were created for a purpose; I have found mine in the art and science of medicine. It is my life's passion and privilege to practice as an internist dedicated to restoring the art to clinical medicine. The most enjoyable aspects of practicing medicine for me are developing relationships with my patients to maintain their health, helping direct them toward wellness by intimate knowledge of their medical risks and problems, and helping them understand these in a straightforward way to either restore their wellness or help them adapt to a better quality of life.
