Dr. Christine Johnson recently joined Partners in Primary Care, and prior to that, worked for two years at Team Health. A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, she is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and completed her residency at the University of New Mexico. She is also Board Eligible in Geriatrics.
Dr. Johnson entered the medical profession because she finds it endlessly fascinating and being a physician allows her to help people through some of their toughest moments. She has an affinity for seniors, enjoys meeting and following their health trajectory, and helping to manage their medical conditions.
Dr. Johnson believes that it is listening and shared decision-making that ensure patient satisfaction, and that the “right” doctor-patient relationship is based on mutual trust. The best part of her job is earning her patients’ trust to manage their conditions and guide them to better health.
In her time off, Dr. Johnson enjoys spending time with her two little chihuahua mixes she adopted during her residency in New Mexico. She also enjoys trying out new restaurants with her boyfriend, watching Netflix and hanging poolside with her family.
