I had cataract surgery and Dr. Johnston was very professional, friendly, answered any questions I had and performed the procedure without any problems. I highly recommend Dr. Johnston and all the staff at Novus. You won't find a better group of professionals anywhere in the area. Thank You Dr. Johnston, you restored eyesight that had been gone for years.

Dr. Johnston has been my ophthalmologist for over three years, and i have been very satisfied with his ability to help me with maintaining healthy eyes and explaining the issues that have given me problems, such as allergies and how the eyes change as a result of aging.
Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate you entrusting me.

I would NEVER recommend him. I suffered a concussion. Novus was referred. This doctor disregarded my pain. I pushed him away to make him stop. He told me certain test results were poor and didn't explain why or what. He gave a SECONDARY diagnosis based on my age ONLY. He said I should have eye issues at my age though I have no previous issues. Then he didn't diagnosis the results from the test at all. Trust him to retest me. NEVER. He doesn't listen to the patients and he giggles as he work.

I took my mom, who is 83 and has had a stroke, kicking and screaming to an appointment to find out how bad her cataracts were. Every single person there was gentle and patient with her. Pam, the technician, took her hand to walk her to the examining room, and gently guided her throughout several screenings. Dr. Johnston, likewise, was patient with her refusal for cataract surgery at this time but allowed her the option of just getting glasses that would improve her sight somewhat for 6 months.
