What People Say About Dr. Keith Johnson, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Worst staff in town. No customer service skills. The doctor has no empathy either. Seems he was never taught that the patient is WHY he is a doctor in the first place...not all about him. Phone calls from staff never EVER returned, prescriptions take weeks to get refilled, not sure why such an easy task is so hard for the 15 ladies he employs to run his office. They almost seem to go out of their way NOT to care. When asked too many questions, the doctor gets pissy. Most of the staff seems mute and completely ignorant. Oh, and after surgery, in the hospital, no one came to my room to check on me. Just the hospital staff. Never saw the doctor again. Nor did he call. Very strange.

Dr seemed perfectly fine and knowledgeable for the less than 10 minutes we saw him. BUT the WAIT was unbearable. We had an 8:45am appt. & were seen at 12:15! HORRENDOUS. They claimed they could have taken us sooner if we had the X-ray the Dr. needed to diagnose my mother. I was told this at 11:45am! Once learning of this, I went to get the CD of the required X-ray 0.5 miles up the road from SW X-Ray and was back in less than 10 minutes! No common sense or respect for their patients' time.

I went inside and was given a referral for another doctor.

Had very high hopes for Dr. Johnson but sadly he dropped the ball when it came to my grandmother's surgery. He didn't see us post-op and made tons of excuses as to why he didn't. Glad her surgery turned out well but I wish we had some insight into what care she needed afterwards. I don't recommend him at all

To me no a good doctor, The last visit he did not see me with regard to my results, many excuses! Somebody else talked to me and gave my results, I am not sure if that person was his medical assistance. According to that person the doctor will call me about any physical therapy or meds for my pain and I still waiting already a 1.5 month passed. The first time I saw me he did not examine me at all. To me he is to clean to get dirty with his patients. No a very caring doctor at all

Dr. Johnson had originally operated on my arm. Since day one he kept having us back n forth in his office. His staff, with the exception of his tech, is completely under qualified & unable to do things. Calls never get returned, scheduling is a pain, and wait time is horrible.... All Dr. Johnson is worried about is charging the insurance without doing anything... DO NOT RECCOMMEND!

Dr.Johnson is focused on seeing as many patients as he can at the expense of quality service. I waited over an hour and a half before being seen by his staff and the doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me. Horrible service!

I thought Dr. Johnson was wonderful. I did see the tech mostly, which was fine, but Dr. Johnson did the evaluation to find out what was wrong with my hip and scheduled my surgery. He did a wonderful job on my hip and I am very pleased. I still have to do my stretches and break up some leftover scare tissue but that's the case with any surgery. I don't believe anyone could have done a better job.

My daughter had her surgery 3 months ago...Dr showed up 4 hours later, hospital apologized for him said it was normal... Went to a few appointments only saw Robert, which was Awesome. Saw Dr Johnson finally after a 2 1/2 hour wait. Gave me the parent, no eye contact when talking and knew nothing about her case...we had to fill in the blanks for him. Robert, Martha I believe and the lady who makes the appts. are great, the other little girls are snobby and rude.Horrible Experience!!!
