In March, Michele Johnson, DO, FACOG, took the leadership role as the new Medical Director of Celebration Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates.
She has been charged with closely collaborating with the executive management team to implement strategies that perpetuate and further enhance the delivery of superior quality care and patient experience that have become hallmarks of the practice.
Johnson was born in Arizona and grew up in New York. Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, Johnson attended medical school at the Ross University School of Medicine in the Dominica, West Indies after graduating with honors from the University of San Diego with a bachelor’s degree in Biology.
While in Dominica, Johnson initiated a program to provide transportation and care for pregnant women in villages around the country.
Upon completion of her basic science curriculum, she returned to New York City to complete her clinical rotations. This is where her passion for OB/GYN began. Following completion of residencies at Oakwood Hospital and Medical Center in Detroit, Michigan, and David Grant USAF Medical Center in California, she practiced general OB/GYN for several years before becoming an Obstetric Hospitalist.
Johnson has been a member of the clinical staff at Celebration Obstetrics & Gynecology since 2018 but practicing medicine for the past 13 years.
Before coming to Celebration Obstetrics & Gynecology Associates, she served as Medical Director for the Hospitalist programs at Oviedo Medical Center in Oviedo, and Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne, Florida.
Johnson specializes in managing obstetrical emergencies as well as patients in the emergency room. Her passion lies in caring for patients in the hospital during their delivery. Her interests include high risk obstetrics and hospital-based medicine.
“We are truly fortunate and grateful to have a physician of Dr. Johnson’s experience, character and deep commitment to care excellence on our team. She is a superb clinician who is beloved by her patients and colleagues, alike, and has proven to be a natural born leader. She was the ideal person to be named as our Medical Director and is sure to play a significant role in the ongoing success of our practice for many years to come,” said Dr. David Marcantel, who founded Celebration Obstetrics and Gynecology in 1998.
Gynecological services at the practice include preventive care and family planning with a special interest in minimally invasive and robotic surgery. During pregnancy, the focus is on prenatal services and support.
Johnson loves calling Celebration home. In her spare time, you can usually find her at the baseball fields supporting her sons in their competitive baseball leagues. Her family just welcomed a baby girl in March of 2019.
