His “ bedside manner” leaves much to be desired. He did very little to encourage us in any way. My message communication with him has been very disheartening. He has his nurse answer and the answers are typically short and cold. We are still seeing him for now.

Been going to Dr.B for about 15-20 years for annual check ups. She performed surgery on my Mom about 25 years ago. Never rushed & will spend whatever time needed. And I trust her. That is a biggie for any doctor!

Dr Johnson was terrific treating my wife's aneurysm. His manner was very professional yet personal and he answered all of our questions in a way we could understand. He checked on my wife daily while she recovered in the icu. Cannot express how thankful we are to have been in his care.

She was not receptive to my questions regarding my husbands Lupus and the likelihood our children may or may not have the disposition. She cut me off when I asked rather educated questions as if I was attacking her integrity. I will not be coming back to her.

Very unprofessional. The attention to my needs was minimal at best. I felt as though I was just another broken part in a conveyer belt trying to get me out the door as fast as possible. No exploratory questions or anything. He was very unhelpful..
