About John Pauls, MD, PhD

As a physician, I treat all patients with respect, giving them the best quality care possible. A life-changing event for me was providing medical care to tsunami survivors in India. I subsequently have participated in medical mission trips to Peru and Nicaragua with my family. Outside of my work, I enjoy playing the violin at church, developing my interest in photography and spending time with family and friends.

Appreciated how detail oriented Dr Pauls notes were. He gave us a detailed transcript of the appointment and instructions/recommendations. We may not have remembered everything otherwise. He was wonderful at making my son feel "heard." Loved not feeling rushed through the appointment and having things explained well.
