Dianne Johnson, M.D. is a board certified Diagnostic Radiologist specializing in Breast Imaging. As part of career dedicated to the early diagnosis of breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer death among US women, Dr. Johnson expanded her expertise to include Lifestyle Medicine as a key strategy in cancer prevention. In addition to completing a Diagnostic Radiology Residency at the Ochsner Clinic in New Orleans, LA, she completed a fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville Florida. Last year she added Board Certification in Lifestyle Medicine to her impressive list of credentials.
Using the latest in Breast Imaging technology and screening we can detect early breast cancer, when it is most treatable. With a whole foods, plant based diet as well as lifestyle modifications, we can prevent the cancer from forming in the first place. Dr. Johnson uses all tools available to provide the best care for her patients, always remembering that we are caring for a whole person, not just a body part or a particular disease.
When not at work, Dr. Johnson can be found spending time with her husband and four children with a focus on outdoor activities such as running, hiking, and playing at the beach.
Dr. Johnson is a member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and completed Board Certification in Lifestyle Medicine last year. She personally follows a whole food plant based diet and incorporates a plant based philosophy when counseling patients on cancer prevention and risk factor modification.
