11/30/2015 - Dulles South Veterinary Center welcomes Dr. Ron Johnson
We welcome the newest emergency veterinarian, Dr. Ron Johnson. Prior to joining Dulles South Animal Emergency, Dr. Johnson hails originally from Massachusetts. He is one of two brothers, who are both practicing doctors (his brother is a pediatric dentist, on Cape Cod).
Veterinary medicine was a childhood goal for Dr. Johnson, but postponed to pursue musical opportunities. Being trained intensively in clarinet, he pursued a rock ’n roll career in woodwinds through his twenties and traveled the country, living in Hollywood, Santa Monica, Malibu, and Vermont.
With veterinary medicine being the end goal, Dr. Johnson received his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Veterinary Medicine following a Psychology baccalaureate from the University of Massachusetts. With a concentration in surgery and emergency medicine, Dr. Johnson has enjoyed practice in Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Florida and Virginia. He has a special interest in solving difficult trauma cases.
Dr. Johnson’s avocational interests include improvisational woodwinds, photography, reading, and simply enjoying all the nature around him. He shares a mountaintop woodland home overlooking the Shenandoah Valley with his very loved and special black cat. Welcome Dr. Johnson!
