listened to me, taken my experience with different treatments into consideration, made me feel respected and (most importantly) has been the only neurologist to provide me with rescue and preventative medications that actually work. Her office staff are amazing— they respond to requests quickly and are a huge part of why I stay with this office even after having moved out of the area!

In 20 years of dealing with a horrific medical condition and dozens of doctors, I can clearly state that this is the worst doctor I have ever encountered in my life. 500 characters is not enough to list the reasons why. But all the 1-star reviews should say plenty.

Most ignorant egotistic doctor. This "doctor" Doesn't even know Cymbolta's maximum dosage. She almost prescribed me a migraine Device that cannot be used on stroke patient which she was informed during the 10 minute consul before kicking me out refusing to write a migraine prescription. Without reviewing my two specialists' diagnosis on several neurologic conditions and performing a physical exam, she came with a wrong diagnosis and told me Medicare is not contacted with "MY" surgical center.

my daughter has been seeing Dr Johnston for cervical nerve pain. She has been awesome with my daughter. She does not rush through appointments and is very attentive to what we tell her. I'd highly recommend her.
