My wife was seen at VB Gen Emerg Room the 1st Week of Feb 2018. Dr Johnson was called in due to the severity of her situation. Her prognosis was very dire. Our family was so upset we had no idea what to do. Dr. Johnson (whom we had not met) was right there on the spot to advise on a plan of treatment. We found him to be caring, compassionate, and responsive. He helped to get the best team of Drs. in place to treat my wifes cancer. We are very thankful for all he did.

This is a very busy practice but the schedulers do a good job keeping wait times down. I've seen Dr. Johnson twice. He is very nice, knowledgable and thorough. I never felt rushed and all questions were answered. His nurse is also very pleasant. I highly recommend him.
