Dr. Roger Johnson, DVM

Dr. Roger Johnson together with Dr. Terry Maxwell started the AHOM in February 2001.  During his first year at college, while thinking about career choices, he realized that he loved biology and enjoyed working with his hands. Teaching did not appeal to him, so he thought veterinary medicine would be a good fit, as he has always loved animals. Dr. Johnson graduated from Universided de Guadlajara (Mexico) in 1979.


Dr. Johnson takes a special interest in caesarian sections and says he enjoys how well the AHOM team members work together, making for lower stress on a day to day basis. He says that is important for him to keep abreast of new developments in veterinary medicine so that he may provide individualized treatment for each pet, knowing that pets are important family members. 

In Dr Johnsons's spare time he enjoys reading, walking, and bicycling. He fondly remembers his last pet Mitzi,  who he says was a fat, loveable beagle. She eventually suffered from kidney failure and crossed the Rainbow Bridge a few years ago.
