About Fayemi Sylvanus Johnson, MD


After earning his medical degree from the University of Liberia, Dr. Johnson completed obstetrics and gynecology residency training and board certification in the United Kingdom. He subsequently completed an obstetrics and gynecology residency at Howard University Hospital in Washington, D.C. Dr. Johnson is eligible for board-certification by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

With almost 30 years of experience in medicine, Dr. Johnson practiced in West Africa and the United Kingdom before coming to the United States in 2004. Initially motivated to become a physician by a loved one’s death from cancer complications, he believes that everyone deserves excellent care irrespective of race, religion, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.

Dr. Johnson provides gynecologic care from teenage years to menopause, in addition to comprehensive obstetric care. His specialties include the B-Lynch procedure—having trained under the surgeon who developed it—in addition to colposcopy, cone biopsy, myomectomy and laparoscopic hysterectomy, with interests in minimally invasive gynecology and global health. Committed to giving the best to anyone under his care, Dr. Johnson listens to his patients’ viewpoints while providing compassionate counseling and holistic care.

Originally from Sierra Leone, West Africa, Dr. Johnson enjoys the Eastern Shore of Virginia for its peace, quiet, lack of traffic, and above all, his staff and patients. Outside of work, he enjoys home improvement, reading, movies and cooking. Dr. Johnson is married with two children.
