Assistant Professor

Anita Vincent-Johnson, MD, is a fellowship-trained nephrologist. She helps patients manage acute kidney injury and electrolyte and acid base disorders. She also cares for people with chronic kidney disease and those who need end-stage renal dialysis. She has expertise in renal replacement therapy, including:

  • Hemodialysis
  • Peritoneal dialysis
  • Continuous renal replacement therapy

She joined the UVA faculty in 2021 after completing her fellowship training in nephrology at UVA. She has a bachelor’s degree in physics from James Madison University and a medical degree from Ross University. She did her internal medicine residency training at Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.

Growing up with two veterinarians as parents, Dr. Vincent-Johnson had an early interest in medicine. “In high school and again in undergraduate, I took human physiology classes, which I greatly enjoyed,” she says. “I decided my last year of undergraduate school that I wanted to pursue medicine because of my interest in human anatomy and physiology as well as my interest in working and caring for patients.”

She adds, “I am hard-working so that my patients get my best care. I work with you to come up with a diagnostic and treatment plan, and I work to accommodate distance, finances or whatever your interests or limitations may be. I make sure to incorporate your health goals as my main goal. I like to get patients interested and invested in their healthcare. I use guidelines to guide my clinical decision-making but also understand that patients are all unique and conform treatment plans to what works best for each patient.”
