Dr. Johnson is a very caring and compassionate doctor. He takes the time to listen to concerns and explains the choices of treatment that are available. He makes you feel very much that you and your treatment are important and that you are comfortable with your decisions.

My concern remains that I have not been able to thoroughly discuss the impact of a severe breast injury and its impact on this medical matter. Further, there should be greater discussion and exploration of longer term treatment BEFORE surgery if the matter is in check and progressing in a positive manner. Instantaneous results are not expected, but there is a general feeling that the medical team needs to process me through rather than prolong a treatment that thus far has been effective.

Dr. Johnson has been my surgeon through the first three...and now fourth bout with breast cancer and now... the second mastectomy. He is a brilliant and caring surgeon with a passion for my survival as his patient. My Magee "angel team" has been with me for thirteen years...I owe them my life. We moved from Pittsburgh to Florida three years ago...and I return to Magee for all my care...trusting only Dr. Johnson, Dr. Shestak and Dr. Brufsky with my life and continued care. Dr. Johnson called me personally within one day of my path report, as shared by Dr. did Dr. Shestak, to discuss my options. He is the most caring and inspirational healer...he has a heart of gold and is a gift from heaven for me and all the others he continues to save...

Dr. Johnson and his staff exceeded my expectations in dealing with my serious medical condition. He explained the problem in a professional and caring way. He also was very attentive to my concerns during the two visits to his office prior to surgery. In addition, he personally called me with results of biopsies which were not good and his concern helped to ease my anxiety. On the day of surgery I was so confident of Dr. Johnson that I went into the procedure with faith that I was in the best care possible.

thoughtfulness, kindness, and making you feel at ease above expectations from Dr Johnson thru all of staff .He was extremely professional in his description and explanation of my disease process. I couldn"t have asked for more clear and understandable information in the way it was presented. Also the nurse Becky was extremely thoughtful helpful and kind.

I was very glad that Dr. Johnson's office was able to get me in so quickly. The thought of breast cancer reoccuring and not being seen quickly was scary. I am very grateful for the entire staff at Dr. Johnson's office.
