Specialties

Dr. David A Johnson has the following 3 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Not Happy
The best

I came to, after emergency surgery, and an angel had dropped Dr Johnson into my room. He listens, he's very humble, he's nationally recognized as tops in his field, but he doesn't act like it. Google his name, he's all over the net with papers and videos. Listed as one of the "25 GI doctors you need to know" on professional website. He is also Chief of Gastroeneterology, not just professor. I highly recommend him if you need a gasteroenterologist. Office staff is kind, and efficient, nurses are highly trained and experienced. He also takes Medicatr and Medicaid.

Recently changed affiliation from Carson Valley Medical Center to Carson Tahoe Hospital. Moved to new office at 395 & Hwy 88. He took the time to explain what was going on, and how to fix the problem, and how to avoid it in the future. Very caring. Better able to explain diagetes complication better than other Dr. I've seen. Highly recommend him to anyone. Tri-lingual (English, Spanish, Portugese.)
