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.

This was a post surgery follow-up visit. As always, Dr. Johnson was on time, totally professional, knowledgeable of my situation and listened to what I had to say. I have been seeing him for 7+ years and continue to be impressed and totally satisfied with his care.

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.

My wife insisted I go to St Al's ER after returning from a Christian Men's Breakfast complaining of heart attack symptoms. Dr Johnson inserted two stents. I went home a day later feeling fine and continued on with my life. Thank you, Dr Johnson.
