In just sixth grade, I knew I would be Dr. Johnson. Since that’s come to fruition, I have been recognized by the renowned Best Doctors in America publication and have received the Montague Boyd Award twice, which is given annually to recognize the achievements of academic scholarships and contributions to medical practice and knowledge. In my 25 plus years of practice, I found inspiration in transplant, for the ability to give patients the gift of life.

As a professor of surgery in the division of transplantation surgery, I treat patients at the end stage of liver and kidney disease, diabetes with kidney disease and pancreas, and biliary disease. My clinical interests include liver transplantation, renal transplantation and surgical management of hepato-biliary diseases.

Prior to joining the University of Florida College of Medicine, I worked as chief transplant officer and medical director of transplant services at Wellstar Health System in Marietta, Georgia, as chairman and program director of the Piedmont Transplant Institute in Atlanta and as director of both kidney and liver transplant services at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

I earned my medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine and completed a general residency at New England Medical Center in Boston. Afterwards, I completed a clinical and research fellowship in transplantation surgery at Harvard Medical School.

In my free time, I enjoy many outdoor activities, including mountain biking, pickle ball and relaxing at the beach with my kids.
