Jan Johnson is a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner who recently joined our center in Stone Mountain, GA. He has a Master of Science in Nursing and specializes in Primary Care. Jan has been a Nurse Practitioner since his graduation from Emory University School of Nursing approximately four years ago. His motivation to enter the medical field was to help people live healthier lives. Prior to CenterWell, Jan worked at Emory Healthcare for more than two years, Nuber-T Men’s Health Clinic and Wellstar Healthcare. At Wellstar, he participated in a 12-month leadership training course for Advanced Practice Providers. While his previous work experience was not solely with the senior population, Jan says he often treated seniors with urinary health issues at Emory Urology.
As a Family Nurse Practitioner, Jan enjoys educating patients so they can feel empowered in managing their illness and improving the quality of their lives. His friendly disposition helps his patients feel welcomed, and he wants them to feel that their concerns are listened to and that they are well-educated about their diagnosis and treatment plan. To Jan, the ideal provider-patient relationship is built on comfort and trust, which leads to greater compliance with care plans.
When he is not working, Jan loves spending time watching movies with his wife. They both like 1940’s black and white movies and British mystery shows – and they also love to travel.
