Dr Johnson, his assistant, and front office staff person were all very pleasant people to speak with and very professional. The medical assistant was extremely polite. Dr Johnson is by far the best neurologist I've ever seen in my life, and I've seen many between myself and other family members. He talks to me like a normal person and he still seems excited about his role in neurology. I'm lucky to have a chance at seeing this doctor.

Dr Johnson and his team were very professional and easy to communicate with. Dr Johnson's expertise, enthusiasm and easy-going style make a tremendous combination. Very impressive.

Dr Johnson has great bed side manner. He was knowledgeable, kind, funny and professional. I honestly enjoyed my visit! He explained things so that I could understand but wasn't demeaning. He obviously did research on my condition and reviewed my medical chart which I found impressive and not the norm. I think he is a fabulous doctor.

I love this doctor, he is the only one I've seen in over a decade that truly seems to love medicine and have genuine concern for his patients. I never feel dismissed when I see he and he gives me hope for my care.I only wish he wore a mask when seeing me, as I am high risk and it would make me feel safer considering how many people he must interact with daily.My nurse was also clearly sick, although I am grateful that she was wearing a mask (an n95 would have been better than the surgical mask she wore). However I was not completely comfortable being in an enclosed space/being examined with someone that was clearly sick.I do not want to risk infection at a place that I must seek care.

Dr. Johnson is one of best when it comes to "bedside manner"...friendly, engaging, not in a rush, attentive.

  Mar 14, 2024
Dr. Johnson was kind, thorough, listened to me and asked great probing questions. He walked me through options and explained everything in detail. I feel fortunate to have him as my provider!

Dr Johnson is very professional. He listens to all my concerns, and answers my questions with terms I can understand. He has helped me with medications to control my medical problems. He is always open to try different approaches if one should fail. I'm so grateful he has joined this Legacy group!

Truly one if the best doctors I've ever seen!

Friendly, competent and easy to work with.

Dr. Johnson thoroughly explained the MRI scans I had to get in the ER, while speaking to me in a manner that showed they were not speaking down to me. Dr. Johnson even double checked with me about my insurance to make sure I was able to get care without opening myself up for debt. Best provider I've seen in a long time.

Dr. Johnson is awesome.

Dr. Johnson did a thorough evaluation and I believe his conclusions and diagnosis are correct. I can't evaluate the medication he prescribed yet.

  Jan 8, 2024
I felt very heard and understood by the doctor. He was down to earth and relatable. He didn't make me feel stupid for the symptoms I had and explained things to me that no one else had. I felt very upbeat and positive about how to handle my symptoms in the future.

The MA was rude. Doctor was amazing.

  Dec 14, 2023
I could tell that Dr. Johnson CARED about me as his patient by showing me my 3-d Brain Scan he had to dig up to find and by the time and respect he showed me as his new patient.

  Dec 13, 2023
Dr. Brian Johnson spent ample time with me, listening carefully and asking good questions. He seemed very compassionate to help me get treatment.

  Dec 12, 2023
Dr Johnson is the first neurologist I've seen in years that actually took the time to figure out my medical needs and help me get the meds I need to take care of my migraines. Whenever I call with a question he gets right back to me with Answers. I can't say enough about Dr. Johnson and his staff. I'm so thankful.

  Dec 4, 2023
Dr. Johnson is a true professional. He explained the wait and I accepted it. Scheduling was a little close.

  Nov 17, 2023
He was very kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone! He was one of the kindest most down to earth and neurologist I have seen over the last year. He was easy to talk to you, listen to everything, and spent Way more time than other providers typically do! Exceptional care from an exceptional provider!

Excellent provider

  Oct 31, 2023
I've seen a lot of doctors in my life due to my various medical conditions, most have lost their compassion and drive to actually help people. I found this doctor to be very sensitive to my condition and it meant a lot. My only criticism is that I consider myself high risk and would feel more comfortable if the neurology office wore masks.

  Oct 31, 2023
Visit was good. The only issue is trying to call them in the phone. Wait time is very long. Then when I give up and leave a message no one returns my call. Ever. Not even days later. Very frustrating.

  Oct 30, 2023
I was impressed the doctor talked to me about my concerns for a much longer time than any other doctor or PA that I have seen about my current neck pain issue.

  Oct 26, 2023
Dr. Johnson and his MA are top notch, informative, kind individuals.

  Oct 25, 2023
I had an 8:00am appointment and was told to arrive at 7:45 but no one was there.

  Oct 24, 2023
Johnson prescribed medicine that I thought I needed. That was good.

  Oct 19, 2023
Dr Johnson was thorough and provided information for treatment. He is awesome

  Oct 13, 2023
I'm so happy I was referred here. I've never felt so validated and listened to during a doctor's appointment. I was already starting to lose hope that I'd get better but this doctor actually made me feel empowered and excited about all the options I have available to try. Thank you thank you thank you.

My doctor was no longer with the practice and I needed a refill for my migraine shot. When I called they got me in within a week and made sure I got my shots. Dr Johnson was very thorough looking at my history. Dr. Johnson made me feel he had great knowledge on migraines and the additional treatments that can be used if my current one stops working for me.

Brian Johnson seems to be a good addition to the neurologist clinic! Hoping to have better luck getting returns to calls now. Mostly I use the computer to communicate and that's pretty good .. Phone calls have been hard to get a reply from this group!

  Sep 27, 2023
Phone wait times are unacceptably long. It takes too long for the providers office to get back to the patient with questions/concerns.

  Sep 26, 2023
When calling this office I couldn't get a call back and when I did the lady was rude right away. That was the first time ever. The new doctor I have now is amazing and made sure to take his time to understand and listen to what I had to say and address any medical concerns and problems. I definitely would recommend Brian to anyone.

  Sep 25, 2023
I was told to arrive 20 minutes before my appointment time of 8:00. I arrived at 7:40 to find the office doors locked and the office dark. I waited in the hallway for 10 minutes before someone arrived to open the door.

  Sep 21, 2023
He was very nice

  Sep 13, 2023
Dr. Johnson is very easy to talk to and is very thorough. He seems to really care and takes a lot of time with me talking through everything.

  Sep 12, 2023
Excellent physician

  Sep 12, 2023
The staff are all very friendly and professional. Dr Johnson went above and beyond my expectations. He is really helping me to get my headaches under control.

  Sep 12, 2023
Both the doctor and his staff were very considerate.

  Sep 12, 2023
Best medical provider I have seen in years. I have a very complicated medical history, but Dr. Johnson was prepared, thorough, respectful, and knowledgeable. I'm optimistic his care could mean significant improvements in my quality of life and I'm so grateful he is with Legacy now. Thank you!
