-8“Everything we do at Consultative Health and Medicine is about establishing a relationship with the patient and the family.”

Improving access to health care services and facilitating closer relationships with patients in need of those services are two of the primary reasons Dr. Chris Johnson founded Consultative Health and Medicine.

“In medical school, I learned the science of what makes people sick and what can be done to make them well,” says Dr. Johnson. “Since then, however, I’ve come to believe that what really distinguishes me as a physician is my ability to go beyond the science to establish a personal relationship with patients and their family members. Building trusting relationships is every bit as important as the science of medicine.”
