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.

from Joel June 15, 2017 for Karl K. Johsens, MD

Dr. Johsens was my primary doctor before he made the switch to MDVIP. I made the decision to leave him on the basis of cost only. Dr. Johsens was the best primary doctor I ever had. After a year I realized that I made a big mistake and joined MDVIP. It was a wise decision. Dr. Johsens still is the best doctor I have ever had.

cares for his patients. Dr. Johsens' staff is polite, professional, and very
helpful with any questions and follow-up.

from Linda in CA March 14, 2016 for Karl K. Johsens, MD

Dr. Johsens is kind and caring, knowledgeable and respectful. He is genuine in his search to find solutions to whatever health issues arise. I am never reluctant to discuss my feelings about my healthcare treatment with him as he is open to find an approach we are both comfortable with. This is what a doctor patient relationship is supposed to be. He is one in a million!

from Paylor in CA March 9, 2016 for Karl K. Johsens, MD

Dr Joshens is the reason I'm still alive. Having a good bedside manner is just as important as his knowledge. Dr Joshens has always showed me respect, never negative, always positive. I leave his office feeling positive and like I will make it. He never sends me away feeling like , what's the point.... He's, we'll, he's drink. Joshens. Thank you
