I have been seeing Dr. Johnson for all my ENT care for many years now, from the moment you call to make an appointment through the time the appointment is complete and you are ready to leave the office, everything is very professional. Dr. Johnson and his staff make you feel you are their only patient, he talks with you, listens to you and makes you know what a knowledgeable physician he is and your care is extremely important to him. I would recommend him to anyone seeking his specialty.

Dr Johnson is by far the best Doctor I have seen in a long time. He had the best bedside manner, listened to what I had to say, had a calming nature and that goes such along way. I would highly recommend him to anyone in my family.

Horrible experience!

Horrible experience here! 1st of all to make an appt. at the office I was literally on hold for 45 minutes. Someone kept coming on and saying can you hold for a few minutes....that turned into 45. Dr. Johnson was ok but when it was time to check out the ladies at the front were horrible. I told them that I had paid off my bill online and even showed them the receipt that stated that I had paid and they would see payment within 14 business days. They acted as if I was lying. I will not return!!!!

Dr. Johnson provided my daughter with the highest level of care, her surgeries went perfectly. Shes usually pretty nervous at any checkup, but he has a wonderful manner with young kids. I highly recommend him and his staff!

Dr. Johnson was very personable and listened genuinely to my concerns. He was not very assumptive and seem to take a person specific approach to my diagnosis. He also gave me realistic expectations for my treatment plan.

He took great care of my childs tonsil issues. He drew out whay would happen on his tv screen so my 10 year old would understand.

I adore Dr. Garfield Johnson! His bedside manner is amazing. He may be busy but you feel like his only patient when you are with him. He listens very intently and is intent on making and keeping you healthy. Can I give a 10 star rating out of 5?

Have never had to call the office with a health question. Promptly received call back from nurse. She checked with Dr. Johnson. Called back with additional communication quickly. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Johnson and his staff from his surgical skills to his staff and ability to diagnose issues. Goes without saying his "bedside manner" is the best of any doctor I have had in my 58 years.

Left ear closed on a European vacation & return flight aggravated my ear..it was closed and I felt as if I were in a barrel when speaking. Dr. Johnson suggested lancing and inserting an ear plug. I agreed - the procedure was quick and painless - a perception was given. I had the condition for over three months attempted to treat it myself - it got worse - recommended to Dr. Johnson by my physician Dr. Roger Schultz. My hear returned to normal and I am pleased. Dr. Johnson did a great job.
He did my son's ear tubes, and will soon be doing my tonsillectomy. He has a warm, kind demeanor and I trust the work he does.
