I came in to see Dr. Johnson for acid reflux. He and the entire staff were very friendly and informative. I had a procedure completed and it was all explained to me, from the beginning to end. The scheduling to get me seen was quick. I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson and his staff! Thank you to everyone.for such a positive experience! I look forward, to finally getting my acid problem, fully under control, with the help of Dr Johnson. :)

I would recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone. I had a nodule or (swollen lymph node) in my pancreas and no other doctor had the ability or confidence to do a biopsy that that I needed to rule out cancer, but he willingly took my case and did so with ease.His staff is equally as great, Thanks, Melissa Stone.

I was very impressed with Dr. Johnson. He researched my old medical records that weren't even on file with my present physician. I appreciate that extra time was given to acquire that information before meeting him on my first visit..

I met Dr Johnson yesterday when he performed a diagnostic procedure for my father at Aspirus in Wausau. As a nurse and daughter,I found him very competent,knowledgeable,kind and provided explanations to me that answered my questions at this time . He made me feel comfortable that we will expedite my father's care to identify the problem and get a care team in place for him as soon as possible. I see in Dr. Johnson the invaluable qualities I want in a physician .
