Dr. P. John Schanen, DNP, APRN, FNP-CUrgent Care Specialist
Hailing from Robstown, Texas, John has lived in the San Antonio area for over 14 years now and considers it to be home. He has been married for 23 years and has two children who are also very supportive and involved in his business.
John graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree from Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) with a Master of Science in Nursing degree and recently completed a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree at UTEP in 2018.
John has worked as a clinician in various ERs in the Corpus Christi, Victoria, and San Antonio areas, but has also worked in urgent care and family health settings. Before becoming a nurse practitioner, John owned and operated seven outpatient physical therapy clinics located throughout South Texas for over ten years. As a non-practicing owner, the challenge and reward of not providing direct patient care were missing, so in 2009 he sold the business and enrolled in school with the goal of becoming a nurse practitioner and operating his own practice. He now owns and operates Sana Vida Wellness Center, Innovative Urgent Care and Family Health, and OrthoRehab.
John works in collaboration with Jeffrey Johnson, DO, a family medicine practitioner.
When not striving to keep his patients happy and healthy, he enjoys reading, golfing, snow skiing, and traveling with his family.
