Dr. Steven Johnson

Dr. Steve Johnson’s journey into medicine began at a young age through the influence of his father, an orthopedic surgeon. His father’s career included a 10 year family adventure to the Congo of Africa, followed by a very successful orthopedic practice in East Tennessee. Watching his father’s approach to patient care made this choice a clear one for Dr. Johnson.

After completing his undergraduate degree at North Park College in Chicago in 1989,
Dr. Johnson earned his medical degree from the University of Tennessee. He completed his internship and residency at the University of Virginia, serving as Chief Resident in his final year.

In 1997, Dr. Johnson joined Family Practice Associates of Southern Hills in Nashville. From 2012 – 2022 he cared for patients at its Brentwood East Family Medicine location, where he also functioned as Medical Director. During his tenure, Dr. Johnson served in multiple capacities including roles at Tristar Southern Hills such as Chief of Family Medicine and the Executive Board of Tristar Southern Hills.

In October of 2022, he left this group and founded Engage Health. This venture grew out of his desire and conviction that primary care could be so much more. His vision was to provide a higher and deeper level of care to his patients, by incorporating a greater focus on health, wellness, and longevity into this personalized practice model. Engage Health would remove many of the barriers of a traditional practice and put the doctor-patient relationship first.

Dr. Johnson and his wife, Trudy, live in Brentwood, Tennessee. They enjoy spending time with family, friends, and their church community. He enjoys all things outdoors including mountain biking, hiking and more. They are blessed with 3 children, a daughter-in-law and granddaughter. He is a member of the Tennessee Medical Association, serving on the Education Committee. He is also a member of AAFP, AMA and TAFM.
