This is a Dr. who listens and has helped me tremendously. I was having terrible joint pain and she discovered a Vitamin D deficiency and recommended a diet that has greatly reduced my discomfort. She is caring and makes me feel very comfortable.

As a referring provider clinic, I will not be sending patients to this clinic. Terrible attitudes, will not accept most insurances, declines to take patients on.

I like Dr Johnson. My problem-there is no return of calls when I request for call/appointment. i need a follow up after Lab work. Experiencing chronic symptoms that need monitoring! Quite frustrating.
