Hi, my name is Taralyn Johnson. I’m from the Menifee/ Murrieta area and graduated high school at Calvary Chapel High School in Murrieta. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Health Science and my Master of Science Degree at California Baptist University in Riverside, California.
I chose to pursue medicine because I have always been interested in science and trying to understand how the human body works. Practicing medicine combines this knowledge with human connection and service as well. I love being able to to be a part of a patient’s health journey, building that patient-provider relationship with someone, and helping someone improve their health and quality of life. My medical philosophy is to listen and then educate. Many medical concerns can be better treated with more time spent listening to the patient and really understanding their symptoms, pain, worries, and concerns. I really want to make sure patient’s have an understanding of why certain treatments are recommended, so that they are also a part of the decision making and feel comfortable about their medical care.
Some of my favorite hobbies and activities that I enjoy doing include spending time with family, going to the driving range, golfing, and disk golf. Getting out in the sun on nice days here in Southern California is something that is really important to me.
