I have never had a bad experience with this doctor

July 19, 2017

The whole staff and my Doctor were very helpful and patient with me. I did not want to follow their first plan for my care so I asked them to search for an alternative, they did that and responded back to me within 2 days. After that we sat down, the Doctor and I and talked about what I could do, and he gave me a month to see if that would work. The appointment on the 19th was my return check up, and their alternate solution had worked and I did not need to take permanent medication. I am very pleased with my Doctor and his office.

Unbelievable how quickly Dr. Johnston & his staff got me in to see a specialist for the problem I had - within a week. The care I got at the visit and in follow up with the allergist was the best I could have asked for.

My physician , Dr Craig Johnston called me personally to make sure my visit covered all of my health concerns prior to my visit. What a wonderful committed physician he is!
