"Bon Secours St. Francis is unique in that it actually lives its mission—to be good help to those in need.”
Greenville, SC (PRWEB) December 11, 2012
Bon Secours St. Francis Health System is pleased to announce the opening of the Bon Secours Family Medicine Center and the addition of Robert G. Johnson, Jr., MD, to the Bon Secours Medical Group.
The practice will offer a full spectrum of family medicine, including newborn care and minor surgery and will accept all forms of insurance, including Medicaid.
Dr. Johnson said he knew he wanted to be a doctor at an early age. He enjoys the variety of care that Family Medicine provides and will offer pediatric medicine and women’s health services at the new practice, as well as perform minor surgical procedures. Prior to the opening of the Family Medicine Center, Dr. Johnson has been volunteering in the community, assisting at the initial visits of the new Pearlie Harris Center for Breast Health Mobile Mammography coach at Triune Mercy Center and San Sebastian Catholic Church.
“Bon Secours St. Francis fits my requirement to practice medicine at a faith-based organization, which cares about the spiritual aspects of its patients,” said Dr. Johnson. “The clinical staff loves their patients. Bon Secours St. Francis is unique in that it actually lives its mission—to be good help to those in need.”
Dr. Johnson, a Bob Jones University graduate, earned his medical degree at Oregon Health Sciences University School of Medicine and did his residency in Family Medicine at Shasta Cascade Family Medical Center and Orthopedic Hospital in Redding, California. He is board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
