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+!

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.

Tom in Eagle , ID – Jan 05, 2019
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.
