Rogena Johnson, M.D.


Dr. Johnson thoroughly enjoys every aspect of primary care, working with all ages in long-term health maintenance and preventative care as well as acute care. She is enthusiastically committed to the concept of wellness and disease prevention. She believes that the overall level of wellness of her patients has a direct impact on their quality of life and she works with them as a physician and a mentor to create a personalized plan to achieve their health goals. She is also well versed in a wide variety of clinical procedures and minor office surgeries. She believes in working within her community to establish and promote public health programs and awareness.



Dr. Rogena Johnson is a Family Medicine physician with overseas experience and a strong public health perspective. She earned her MD and completed her residency at The University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, Kansas. Dr. Johnson’s past teaching roles include a pre-medicine student shadowing of her during private practice, supervisor of her inpatient care team during residency, and resident preceptor for students throughout their first two years in medical school. Dr. Johnson has a strong background in research, including her study in 2008 to improve rates of HPV vaccination and public health awareness of cervical cancer in her community. She has also researched ways to identify patients at risk for osteoporosis. Prior to starting medical school she worked in a biological science laboratory at the medical school that is at the forefront of research regarding cochlear regeneration techniques that would allow certain forms of hearing loss to be restored.

In 2005, Dr. Johnson completed a clerkship in General Surgery in Zanzibar, Tanzania – an experience that was pivotal in her decision to become a Family Medicine physician. It was during that time, when working with patients that were truly at risk and whom had little access to healthcare, but were genuinely grateful for any help they could get, that she realized she had to be able to take care of most any issue a patient might have. Thus she decided to go into Family Medicine so that she would learn every aspect of caring for a patient and their family.

Dr. Johnson has remained involved with her professional community, and has delivered presentations like “Lead Toxicity in an Adult Patient” at the University of Kansas Hospital Hematology Grand Rounds. Her publications include a chapter on anemia for "Signs and Symptoms in Family Medicine", an Elsevier textbook for medical students. She is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians as well as the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine.

Her many awards for her compassion and devotion include the "G.O. Proud Student Research Fellowship Award" for Otolaryngology research from the University of Kansas Hospital ENT department in 2002, nomination for the "2012 Treasure Coast Physician Excellence Award" as well as the "2012 Patients' Choice Award" from the online consumer research organization She is a recognized physician and has been on their honor roll since 2010.


“Dr. Johnson has perfect bedside manners. She makes eye contact and treats me like an individual and not a number. Her accurate diagnosis of my health issues and successful treatments has improved my life. What I will remember most about Dr. Johnson is her sense of humor.”

Rhett Baker


“Dr. Johnson is approachable, understanding, patient and thorough. She truly cares about her patients and their lives. I trust her! I believe what she teaches me. She is passionate about her work and the relationships she has with her patients. I have referred all of my friends and family to her. Her caring approach has helped both my son and me.“

Tammy Avery


“What I enjoy most about Dr. Johnson is she feels like a long lost friend. I can discuss anything with her. She makes me feel like any issue I bring to her is important. She has a desire to help and tries to prevent problems instead of just giving you something to treat the symptoms. Her weight management program has helped me lose 50 pounds and I am in better control of my health issues.”
