Dr Johnican is excellent ENT. His staff is wonderful. He saved my ear and worked with me til the end. Very well mannered and knows his work. He did surgery on my ear and u can't even tell where the scar is at. My dad and mom referred him to me. My dad robert k is 82has hearing aids (two) he takes good care of both of them. He talks with them ,not at them. His autoagist is great also. She cares. All of us use Dr Johnican my brother drives from bay city to see him Thank you

I recommend Dr. Johnigan. I had the privilege of knowing him through work for 2 years. He takes great care of his patients and is methodical, ethical, kind, and caring. He listens with consideration and explains the problem and solution carefully. He treated my 2. 5 year old for allergies and preformed a T&A. He spoke directly to her (not just me) during her exam and TX plan , which was impressive. I trust the gift God gave him. Even after moving away, we drove down for him to treat my son.A+

Not only was Dr. Johnigan very knowledgeable and professional but he took the time to explain in layman's terms how my issue came to be and how the treatment exercises would work. Office staff was excellent as well. Cured my vertigo!!! Thank you

I really love Dr. Johnigan. Easy to talk to. Respectful, kind, knowledgeable, courtious, easy going, and a sense of humor as well. Great Dr.
in Friendswood, TX |
Called in the morning to get an appointment with Dr. Johnigan from a referral from our primary physician. Were advised we would receive a call back from his nurse that he would be working at the Pearland office, but never heard back. Called back in the afternoon and was told no way could they see us for an appointment. Offered an appointment two weeks from now, even with a referral. With a holiday weekend now we will have to go to an emergency care, too late. Unprofessional and disappointing.

Dr. Johnigan has always been efficient, knowledgeable. and compassionate. He has skills and knowledge beyond any other doctor I have been to. He is very through in his exams. He explains things so that you havew a clear understanding.
in Lake Jackson, TX |
Both me and my wife as huge fans of his. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, and has a high degree of perfectionism. He has operated on both of us. Unfortunately, for both of us, we are regulars - but look forward to seeing him and his staff. Fist grade, top notch, so see this guy.

He is an AMAZING DOCTOR, very knowledgeable, friendly, caring and very thorough. He truly listens to your concerns and symptoms.

Very compassionate and takes time to explain your condition and all options. I needed an ear tube replaced and expected to have to make another appt. He was able to replace the tube on the same day, very timely and efficiently.
