Clinic philosophy

To provide the means by which patients can take charge of their own health and do their own healing, and to educate our patients on alternative approaches to healing and longevity.

Partnership with our patients

It is our objective to ensure that each patient becomes our partner in achieving and maintaining their own health. We do not believe that the role of the patient is one of passivity, allowing and expecting the physician to take complete charge of their health. This attitude is neither realistic, nor is it practical. No one knows your body better than you do! Your involvement and input in improving and maintaining your health is required to ensure that you receive the best possible care and treatment.

Information and Education

We believe that proper information must be made available and shared with our patients to enable them to participate in their health and healing. To that end, we provide a variety of sources for information. These include such things as quarterly newsletters, information booklets and pamphlets, book lists, and books. We are also in the process of developing a series of information booklets covering a variety of health topics. Additionally, Dr. Johnson participates on a monthly basis on a local radio program, discussing a variety of health issues, and conducts free monthly lectures at his office. Please see the 'Upcoming Events' page on this web site for more details.

The Cost of Health Care

Receiving quality health care should not be dependent upon how much money you have.
Many alternative therapies are not covered under the provincial health care plan, although some private insurers do extend a limited amount of coverage. This means that the patient who chooses alternative medicine often ends up personally responsible for financing their health care. We wish to ensure that no one needs to turn their back on their health due to financial pressures. Therefore, we have implemented a number of options to assist our patients in this regard. Visa, MasterCard, debit cards, and payment programs are available. Please feel free to discuss these options with our clinic staff.
