Kelly Finnegan, PA-C - Her dedication and commitment to patient care is truly exceptional.

I grew up in a medical family and have a long background in allopathic medicine. I originally learned about Dr. Johnson around 2017 when I was working in outpatient GI. Several patients told me about the incredible results they were seeing under her care and I was inspired to learn more about functional medicine. I have incorporated many tenets into my personal life and then incorporated them into the treatment of patients prior to joining The Johnson Center.

I always start with understanding the patient’s goals first. I like to understand their priorities and make sure that we create a plan together to achieve their objectives.

I am certified as a HeartMath practitioner for stress, anxiety and emotional regulation. I am currently focusing on cycling females from PMS to PCOS. And I have trained under Dr. Greenblatt’s in Functional Psychiatry.

My husband and I live on a farm where we have a large garden and raise beef cattle. There is nothing better than eating fresh food right from our farm! I spend my extra time outside of work volunteering, knitting, traveling and caring for our 3 dogs.
