Dr. Johnston's Care Philosophy
Each patient is unique, therefore, each patient needs to become an expert in their disorder or cancer in order to make a decision that is best for them. I prefer to meet with my patients at the end of the day or arrange a conference at off hours, to allow as much time as a patient needs to fully understand their options. At the end of this conference, I prefer the patient return home and think about our discussion before making a decision. I expect them to have discussions with their primary care doctor or any friends or family they trust to help them make an important decision. I encourage my patients to call or email with any additional questions. In the end, each patient will make a decision that they feel is right for them. If I can get my patients to this point, I know we have a great chance at success.
