Essentia Health-Fargo is proud to welcome Dr. Carol Johnson, who specializes in elder care.

“I completed a fellowship in geriatrics after 17 years of practicing family medicine because it is an age group and area of medicine that has always drawn me,” said Dr. Johnson, who was born in Fargo and attended high school in Grafton.

Dr. Johnson received her medical degree from the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She completed a residency in family medicine at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and a fellowship in geriatrics at the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences. Dr. Johnson is board certified in family medicine.

“I have always been drawn to older people,” Dr. Johnson said. “I look forward to the opportunity to provide thoughtful medical and supportive care to older adults and their families, and the elder care team at Essentia will allow me to do that.”
