Dr. Kendrick Johnson family doctor in Phoenix

Dr. Kendrick Johnson

DO, Family Doctor Phoenix + Peoria

Hi, I’m Dr. Kendrick. I’m excited to get to know you and help you be as healthy and happy as you can be.

My philosophy is that patients should be given the best information and then given the ability to direct their care based on their own values. Now patients have access to a lot more information and they need to be empowered to make their own decisions. As we switch over to a system where patients are in control of and responsible for their own health, we will find that will lead to prescribing fewer medications and scheduling fewer invasive procedures.

But if more medication isn’t the answer, then what is? I personally believe it is lifestyle. Studies have shown that 80% of chronic diseases are preventable with nutrition, exercise, sleep and emotional/spiritual wellness. If there were a pill that could reduce chronic illness by 80%, we’d pay lots of money for it. As a family doctor in Phoenix, I’m selling the lifestyle “miracle pill” where the only cost is work and the only major side effect is happiness.

    My Story

    I grew up loving sports, music and the outdoors in Ogden, UT. After high school, I lived in Denmark for two years as a missionary for my church. I then studied biology and nutrition at BYU where I played in a band and met a beautiful woman who would become my wife.

    My priorities include service to God, service to my family, and helping others be healthy and happy.


    • Bachelor of Biology, Brigham Young University
    • Doctorate of Osteopathic Medicine, Touro University Nevada

    Medical Interests

    I want to support people in taking control of their own healthcare by encouraging healthy lifestyle changes, and helping them to make informed decisions through preventative health and medical education. With an overarching goal of global health, I believe I can achieve this as a family doctor in Phoenix. While attending medical school in Nevada, I started an organization called WorldMedicalSchool.org to help improve global medical education.


    My wife is a personal trainer and group fitness instructor who keeps our family healthy and happy. She and my four incredible children are the whole world to me. I love my church, and am into fitness, reading, basketball, music/songwriting, snowboarding, writing, biking, making stuff with my little boy, and snuggling with my little girls.
