I have raved about Dr. Johnson to my Acupuncturist and PT and they both wanted her info so they could recommend her to their patients because they had not heard such positive things about a specialist like that.

The office has a lot of medical assistants - so continuity was difficult, and establishing an office relationship was as well. Some were friendlier than others.

Dr. Johnson is THE BEST! My only complaint is the office recently is trying to push the patient off to a PA. I only see my doctor once a year - I want to see my DOCTOR not a PA!!! My doctor, after many tests, is the one who discovered my cancer!

Dr. Johnson and her staff are highly competent, efficient and yet allow time for questions and concerns and they are extremely kind. The experience ,somewhat urgent in nature,could not have been handled any better (This includes the efficient scheduling of multiple consultations,additional procedures, and tests.)
