About Us

Dr. Corey Johnson

Dr. Corey Johnson has over a 98% satisfaction rate from all his patients treated for Varicose Vein Disease and he is committed to offering only the very best in vein medicine. He graduated magna cum laude from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in chemistry. He then attended the Medical College of Wisconsin (formerly Marquette), graduating in 1988. He completed his Family Practice residency in Casper, Wyoming. Following his residency training he returned to his home town where he worked in Family Practice for seven years. He then became a full time Emergency Medicine physician until 2006 when he completed specialty training in Phlebology (vein disease) and opened his vein practice. Because Phlebology is a relatively new sub-specialty, there was no board certification available at that time. In 2008 when the American Board of Phlebology was established, Dr Johnson became one of only 248 physicians in the world to be granted diplomat status. He is an active member of the American College of Phlebology.

Dr Corey Johnson is excited to share his expertise and skill with his fellow Alaskans. Although a native of Utah, he and his family decided to take a change in pace and purchased a salmon set net site on the Kenai Peninsula where his children work alongside him to pay their way through college. He is a firm believer in hard work, excellence, and service with a healthy dose of fun on the side.

Dr. Johnson’s free time is devoted to whatever his kids are doing, including snow skiing, riding snow machines, and playing tennis. He also reads history books and loves to build things from reclaimed lumber. He serves in his church and is a leader in the boy scouts.

Caryn Hidalgo

Caryn is our patient coordinator and billing specialist. She is a native of Utah, happily married to her husband of 8 years and has two kids, a 4 and 6 year old. A Medical Assistant since 2001, she has used those skills working in urgent care, assorted medical facilities, and with Dr. Johnson in his Utah vein practice since 2007. Caryn demonstrated a willingness and proficiency to learn new things, so tasks of patient reception, billing, insurance filing and verification, and ongoing communication with the physicians were added to her repertoire. She has excelled in those duties for Alaska Vein Care. Always cheerful and eager to work, patients report she is a wonderful first contact and tirelessly works on the patients’ behalf to secure approvals for vein procedures when necessary. She works harmoniously with her co-worker Teresa Maughan to do the very best for our patients.

When not working, she enjoys camping, volleyball, swimming, crafts, and spending quality time with her family.
