Patient Comments (5)
in Moorhead, MN |
He and his staff was amazing with my 6 year old. They were all friendly, competent, and patient.
in Ottertail, MN |
Dr Johnson really knows his stuff. He is very busy, but willing to take the time to explain and answer questions. His staff is outstanding.
in Lamourend |
Seems knowledgable. Not friendly. Not punctual. Not forthcoming about procedure, aftercare. Must ask questions or you won't get any information about what to expect or prepare for.
in Fargo, ND |
Dr. Johnson was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when treating my macular degeneration. Excellent staff. Answered any questions I had. Would recommend him.
in Fergus Falls, MN |
Dr Johnson does not greet you-he comes in, puts on a mask, jabs a needle in your eye, and leaves, without saying a word...it creeps me out. Perhaps he is extremely shy, or socially handicapped, and is really a very nice man, but it feels like contempt.
