“I try to educate people and find common goals that we can work toward – that’s really important.”

Although he started his career in environmental consulting and industrial hygiene, Dr. John V. Chisholm III decided going to medical school and becoming a family medicine physician would suit him best. “I remember answering people’s questions about their long-term health and that really sparked an interest for me in pursuing a career in family medicine and preventative medicine,” he explains.

At Reliant Dr. Chisholm sees adults and children for a variety of issues including infections, diabetes, hypertension, weight problems, asthma, COPD and many other types of problems. He is highly experienced in preventative medicine as well as doing “hands-on” procedures such as skin biopsies and joint injections. Dr. Chisholm is also experienced in women’s health and can perform certain gynecological procedures.

Dr. Chisholm is also board-certified in addiction medicine.  He has a special interest in helping patients living with alcohol and/or substance use disorders. “Many families have someone struggling with addiction and I am glad to use my knowledge and skills to help them. Addiction medicine also includes treatment of physical dependence on legal substances, such as alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and now marijuana. Addiction is really something that can happen to anybody. Fortunately, people seem more willing to go to their doctor and seek help for this issue now. Plus, we have more tools than ever before to help our patients and their families. As an organization, we believe integrated primary care (i.e. embedded behavioral health and substance use disorder services within primary care) is the most comprehensive and effective approach to this problem. We encourage all patients, who think that they may have a substance use disorder or addiction, to ask their health care provider for guidance.

In his practice Dr. Chisholm always makes a point to find common ground with patients in getting them to adopt healthier behaviors. “I try to educate people and find common goals that we can work toward – that’s really important. For instance, someone with high blood pressure may not want to take medication, but if you can help them lose weight, that can get their blood pressure down,” he explains. “That’s why I try to educate, motivate, and celebrate when patients do well. It can take a lot of relationship-building to get people to make those positive changes, but it really pays off in the long run.”

In his spare time Dr. Chisholm enjoys woodworking, marital arts, playing ice hockey, and spending time with his wife and son.
