During medical school, I was attracted to the specialty of Obstetrics and Gynecology for several reasons. I enjoy the variety of providing obstetrical care, performing gynecological surgical procedures and seeing patients in the office. I particularly enjoy the relationships that I have with my patients. Through the years, it has been fun to talk to patients, learn about their lives and follow up with their stories when they return to the office each visit. I consider it a privilege to minister to my patients’ needs through my medical practice.”Dr. William M. Johnson III, M.D.
