Dr. Kim Johnson OBGYN North Shore Associates in Gynecology and Obstetrics

Kim Johnson, M.D.


Dr. Johnson graduated from Michigan State University, completed her medical school training at Wayne State University School of Medicine and her residency at Harvard Medical School/Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital. She’s been practicing obstetrics and gynecology for 21 years, the last 7 at North Shore Associates for Gynecology and Obstetrics.

Dr. Johnson is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She maintains memberships with the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG). She focuses on general OBGYN care from adolescence to menopausal care and beyond.

Dr. Johnson’s passion for women’s health care started well before medical school. Since the beginning of her career, she’s felt privileged to be able to care for women during all stages of their lives. Few fields offer the ability and training to be involved in primary care as well as surgical care of a patient. She still finds this very fulfilling. Plus, she says, “delivering babies is amazing!”

Dr. Johnson lives in Wilmette with her husband and 3 children. They regularly volunteer at community food pantries and homeless shelters. When not seeing patients and volunteering, she enjoys spending time with her family, running, cross-fit training, and traveling.


As many of you know Dr. Jean Ruth is leaving NSAGO to make a new beginning in the great Pacific Northwest – she and her family will move to Spokane, Washington later this month.  She has been with us for 3 ½ years and has done an incredible job working with our providers, staff, and especially, the growing patient base she has served. The patient feedback we have received, both in person and with her on-line reviews inform us that she is truly a special doctor. We will all miss Jean and wish her all the best.


E Perelman MD NSAGOThe rest of the NSAGO family will continue to accommodate and care for Dr. Ruth’s patients. Dr. Liz Perelman joined us last year and has become an integral team member and excellent care provider for our patients.  She is available to see patients at our Wilmette and Glenview locations. Likewise Drs. Goodwin, Johnson and Saleh are happy to see patients for ongoing pregnancy care and gynecology visits. New patients are also welcome so feel free to refer friends and relatives.


We are also very happy to welcome Imaan Ansari, MD, who will join NSAGO in August. Dr. Ansari grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. She attended the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee and then returned to Chicago for Ob-Gyn residency training at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center. We have been very happy to get to know Imaan as a kind and talented physician with superb credentials and a work ethic to match. She will assume Dr. Ruth’s schedule and will have hours in Wilmette and Glenview.
