I have suffered with Chronic illiness for a number of years. I kept changing Neurologist over a 14 year period until I found Dr. Lisa Johnston. She did not dismiss me ,nor contribute my woes to depression and long work hours. She investigated my problem until she found a definite diagnosis. Because of her my chronic pain and MS Crisis are now being controlled. by the proper therapy for MS.. My quality of life has greatly improved. More power to Female Doctors

I am not sure if it her staff or what, I feel like I'm not important. Her schedule never is open for me.

My visit with her about three years ago went well but she asked a lot of questions that I had already answer on during my testing. Found out later they did not have a file on me. Recently I set another appointment but apparently it is not on the their schedule. Bad Office :(

Dr Johnston is the ONLY doctor I trust completely. She listens. She listens thoroughly and instead of ignoring patients ideas and suggestions because they know their own body, SHE LISTENS AND RESPECTS YOU. SHE IS THE ONLY DR TO EVER LISTEN AND FIGURE OUT THINGS THEY HAVE BEEN TRYING TO DIAGNOSE MY WHOLE LIFE. AND SHE HAS A GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER. YOU FEEL LIKE SHE'S YOUR FRIEND. MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED DOCTOR I'VE EVER MET. MY FAVORITE DOCTOR EVER ENTIRE LIFE!
