Since relocating to Salem & a patient of Dr. Johnson’s almost 8 years, I have been very pleased with my professional care & staff attentiveness provided every 3-4 months visiting his office, & I greatly appreciate his office at Lewis Gale allowing limited driving distance.

Dr. Johnson is a dedicated professional with concern for his patients. I had a very uncomfortable infection in my eye and needed to see someone right away. He agreed to fit me in when others would not try. I've been to him twice in the last few days and my infection cleared up quickly and I have found a good ophthalmologist.

It was just a routine checkup & as usual was in & out in less than an hour, even though there were many patients at that time. Everyone from the receptionist to Dr. Johnson were cheerful & dressed with Christmas attire. Which made the visit seem like a celebration of the Holiday.
