Recommended without hesitation, Dr Johnson is excellent. She did an outpatient procedure in the office, that others had failed to correct, in 5minutes, without pain and with perfect results.

I am a Nurse Practioner who lives out of state. Dr Johnson and her staff went way out of their way to accommodate me while I was in town. Her surgery corrected my problem and I was very impressed with not only her surgical skills but also with her friendly and competent staff. She was very responsive to my needs and always willing to answer my questions. I would give her 10 ?? ‘s if I could, She and her staff are THE BEST!!!!!! Great thanks Dr Johnson and staff!!!!!

I have only seen her twice for acute issues, but need to say that Dr Johnson is wonderful. So easy to talk to, makes embarrassing issues seem like no big deal at all. Very skilled.
