I really liked Dr Johnson. He was very informative and took his time to answer all of my questions. I felt very comfortable and like he really cares about his patients. You can tell he has a lot of knowledge in heart care and I'm greatful for doctors like him. He treated me like a person and not just another number. Thank you! Front staff was so nice too and my first impression was A+!

He failed in even greeting or acknowledging the presence of my husband on first office visit. Ordered appropriate studies, but failed in any follow-up response.

Dr Johnson listens, asks questions, checks the heart and checks to see if you have swelling in your feet. He's the best.

Very easy to talk to. I feel very positive after my office visit with him. I would recommend him to any of my friends. The ladies in front office are very friendly which I enjoy since I worked in a doctors office for 35 years and know what it is like handling sick people .

Dr. Johnson is always very thorough. He reviews past data, test results etc. He assesses my current health...EKG, blood testing. Makes suggestions and listens to what I say. He asks if I have questions for him. I have an echocardiogram scheduled to check out a heart murmur.

Dr. Johnson has been my fathers doctor for a few years now. He does not listen at all and keeps going down the same path of switching my fathers medication weekly which causes him to have no quality of life. My father spent 2 weeks in the hospital last year, again in August and just got released last week after spending almost another week in the hospital. Once again Dr Johnson keeps his medication the same. We will be changing doctors.
