Meet Dr. Johnson

Bryan Johnson, MD

Dr. Johnson graduated from Mercer School of Medicine and completed his Family Medicine Residency at ETSU, Bristol.  He spent the first twelve years of his career in private practice in Hiawassee, GA where he was the founding member of a three physician group providing full hospital, nursing home and clinic care.

He is triple board certified in Family Medicine, Palliative Medicine and Integrative Medicine.  For the last 8 years he served as the Medical Director for Erlanger Serious Illness Care, where he practiced Integrative Palliative care for the most critically ill.  He has been an active associate professor of clinical medicine at UTC since March, 2014.

He is passionate about time in the outdoors with his amazing wife and two teenage sons.  He is an enthusiast for spiritual formation, inner life discovery, personal development and physical vibrance which are the core components of true Vitality. And, he is passionate about vibrant wellness.


The Path

During your discovery visit you will be given the time needed to define what health means to you and to determine if what Vital Life Medical Care does well is a good fit for you. Your next visit will be the beginning of your personalized plan to illuminate the key elements of your journey toward health and away from dis-ease.  Subsequent encounters will systematically empower you to experience vibrant wellness.

Virtual appointments are available. Please indicate you'd like a virtual appointment in the notes section when booking your appointment. 

Is Vital Life Medical Care Right For You?

  • Are you ready to be empowered to take full responsibility of your health?

  • Is the conventional health care system not meeting your desire for wellness?

  • Do you desire to get to the root causes of your disease and address those issues?

  • Are you ready to commit to a 3-4 month intensive plan?

  • Are you ready to be all in and get well?

If you answered yes to those questions, then you're at the right place! We want to work with people that are ready to make lasting change!

  • What is the best way to contact Dr. Johnson or his team?
    You can either reach us through our main telephone: 423-707-6019. When reaching out, please leave us a voice message if we are not able to get to your call. The second option would be through our email:
  • Do you accept insurance?
    No. In order to keep our costs low and to offer the services we want, we are not accepting insurance. Our commitment is to keep our prices affordable and accessible and not accepting insurance allows us to do that.
  • Can Dr. Johnson be my primary care physician?
    The primary goal of working with Dr. Johnson is to give you the tools you need to empower yourself to live vibrantly well. Dr. Johnson is not looking to be your primary care physician that you call if you're under the weather. His goal is to help you relieve disease. After completing your 3-4 month treatment plan, Dr. Johnson is more than happy to do occasional follow up visits and address future issues, but is not there to replace your primary care physician.
  • How can I prepare for my first appointment (Discovery Visit)?
    Your first appointment (Discovery Visit) with Vital Life Medical Care provides you with one full hour of Dr. Johnson's undivided attention where you can discuss your presenting health concerns and needs. Feel free to compile a list of your current supplements and/or medications, as well as any relevant health history that would be helpful during the session. For more information regarding what your Discovery Visit will entail, visit our content section under the "More" tab in the navigation links above.
  • Do you offer lab work and imaging on-site?
    We partner with BWell4ever for our lab work. They have an office at Nutrition World, just like us, so it's very convenient. However, if you'd like to have labs done at another facility, we can create an order for you. If we feel that imaging is needed, we will write the order for you and you can go the imaging center of your choice.
  • How long are appointments?
    All of our appointments are for one hour. We never want you to feel rushed.
  • What is your cancellation policy?
    Cancellations must be made at least 72 hours in advance of the appointment. Please be advised that the refund process is subject to a credit card processing fee of 3.5%. Please note, there are no refunds for rescheduled appointments. Thank you!
  • How do I re-schedule my appointment?
    Visit our scheduling page and in the top right corner click "sign in". Your account was automatically created by Square Up when you first booked with Vital Life Medical Care using your cell number. Once logged in, in the top right corner click "my appointments". Follow the prompts, which will guide you to your booked appointment. Here you can re-schedule at a different time and date. If you face any trouble, you can always reach out to us and we will be glad to assist you!
  • Does Vital Life Medical Care have a fax number?
    Vital Life Medical Care does not have a fax number. The best way to send patient information and/or test results would be through our email:
