Dr. Thor Johnson offers a variety of pain management techniques to provide comfort to patients, with a goal of making it as easy as possible to connect patients in pain with the care they need.

“It’s not enough to survive cancer. You have to be able to provide patients a life that gives them dignity, independence and joy.”

The goal is to do medicine in a novel way, with a new perspective, with Hollings pushing the cutting edge of what's happening. What also is a driving force is educating the people who will then go out and deliver that care to patients locally, regionally and nationally.
