About Practice

Progressive Medical Center proudly offers functional, integrative, and holistic medicine for the whole family. At the office in Atlanta, Georgia, Benjamin Johnston Sr., MD, and a team of skilled medical professionals have served more than 40,000 patients over the last two decades. They help each person achieve optimal health and wellness by targeting the root cause of their problems, not just their symptoms.

The team follows a patient-focused approach that identifies and treats all aspects of patients' physical, mental, and emotional health. They create customized treatments that draw from many medical specialties and heal the whole person with natural therapies.

Though many patients seek help when their health doesn't improve with conventional medications, functional and integrative care isn't just a second choice. Progressive Medical Center serves as a primary medical home where patients receive care from a diverse staff of internists, pediatricians, emergency room physicians, gastroenterologists, naturopathic physicians, registered dietitians, and personal trainers.

The Progressive Medical Center team wakes up every day with the goal of making a positive impact in each patient's life. They passionately follow the Progressive Method, a three-step process that begins with an in-depth personal profile obtained by talking with each person. 

The second step, advanced diagnostic testing, goes beyond routine blood tests. They identify more than 100 biomarkers of health, evaluate gastrointestinal health, and run genetic testing that enables truly personalized care. 

For the final step, they develop comprehensive solutions that use natural treatments such as nutritional counseling, bioidentical hormone balancing, IV therapy, chiropractic care, and acupuncture.

Patients receive compassionate care for the full scope of health problems facing people of all ages. As the Southeast's leader in integrative and functional medicine, Progressive Medical Center believes that no two patients are the same, and each person needs a unique treatment protocol. 

As a result, the team offers a vast array of treatments to customize care. A few examples of treatments include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, detoxification, cryotherapy, chelation therapy, biofeedback, far-infrared sauna, and BioMat® therapy. They also provide individualized dietary plans, exercise regimens, and nutritional supplements.

In addition to caring for all aspects of women's health and men's health, including their sexual health, the team treats health challenges ranging from depression and fibromyalgia to digestive disorders, thyroid disorders, diabetes, and prediabetes.

Progressive Medical Center specializes in pain management, headaches and migraines, and the diagnosis and treatment of complex autoimmune disorders. It also offers exceptional integrative programs for weight loss, anti-aging, and sleep disorders.

The Progressive Medical Center team listens, cares, tests, solves, and heals all physical and mental health challenges. To schedule an appointment, call the office or use the online booking feature today.
