Patient Comments (7)
in BRUNSWICK |
I wore glasses 60+ years and vision was worse than 20/400+. My cataracts made driving at night dangerous. Dr Johnson removed the cataracts and implanted Toric lenses last December which corrected me to 20/20. My one year check up today confirmed I'm still at that level. My success inspired my wife to have similar surgery recently and she is now glasses free for the first time in over 20 years. Dr Johnson's clear explanations of procedures demystified complicated (for us) surgery.

I will recommend Dr. Johnson to everyone with eye issues. Dr. Johnson removed the cataracts from both of my eyes. He is up to date on the latest developments in ophthalmology. He is a gentle and caring doctor. His office staff is pleasant and professional. Best of all, he is local so I didn't have to go to Savannah.

Dr Johnson and his office were wonderful. I felt very confident about my surgery. He answered all my questions clearly.
Brunswick, GA |
Very attentive to concerns! He really takes time to explain all aspects of the procedure. Even though the waiting room was full he did not seem rushed at all.

I just finished my second cataract surgery with Dr. Johnson. He is wonderful and his staff are incredibly well trained and efficient - and pleasant!. Both experiences were flawlessly efficient. I have and will continue to highly recommend Dr. Jackie Johnson to anyone.
Nahunta, GA |
Dr. Johnson and his staff were friendly, courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. All things regarding my cataract surgery were explained and questions were answered. When the pharmacy did not fill one of my prescriptions, they were quick to repair the problem. Dr. Johnson verbally interacted with me once in the surgery room and after the procedure was over, which is very reassuring.
