    I made an appointment to see Dr. Johns after reading all the great reviews. Dr. Johns exceeded my expectations. She took her time with my exam, answered all my questions and gave me very good advice on preserving my vision. Her instructions were clear, she is a very good clinician and is very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a eye doctor, and may be having life changing visual changes. The office staff are polite and professional also.
