She was rude, short and condesending from the moment she stepped in the room. No his or welcome. No introduction. She immediately started peppering us with questions. She totally dismissed my family history, bloodwork results and symptoms. The most important thing to her was a quick exam (with autoimmune disease the most important components should rely on bloodwork, family history and symptoms). She talked down to us. She functions more as orthopedic than rheumatoid doc. Steer clear!!!

This was my first visit to Dr. Johnson and it very well may be last. She came very highly recommended although I did not share the same experience. She was very condescending and did not appreciate any questions ask of her. Her responses to questions were vague as well as empty of substance. I feel much worse now about my arthritis than I did before seeing her today. This was a very disappointing experience and I'm not sure if I can face this type of negative treatment again.
