Dr. Richard Johnson, a board certified family physician, is a 25 year resident of Pacific Palisades and currently resides with his wife and youngest son in the Highlands section of town.
His current academic pursuits include frequent lectures to local, regional and national groups of physicians and other groups involving obesity, exercise, gynecology and sexually transmitted diseases. For 10 years he served as the associate editor of Clinical Cornerstone, a continuing educational journal for physicians, and has assisted the American Board of Family Practice with the development of appropriate test questions for certification and recertification.
Dr. Johnson's practice style is to heavily promote a healthy lifestyle through appropriate exercise, eating habits, rational personal habits, and stress reduction. Pharmacological intervention is also seen as an important component of remaining in good health for as long as possible, in those situations where there is good scientific data to support the intervention.
