Dr. Johnston saved my sight even though there were some serious complications when my retina detached and my eye hemorrhaged. He is a talented surgeon and always made time to answer all my questions. I liked that he was available by phone when needed and made special arrangements on a day off to see me. Dr. Johnston is busy but the extra waiting time was worth it. Highly recommend Dr. Johnston.

I would NOT recommend Dr. Johnston to anyone. We have had numerous appointments with him, and have decided to go elsewhere in the future. We usually have to wait two to three hours to finally see him to get test results, only to visit with him for about five minutes. He is short and abrupt, and always in a hurry. He is overbooked! We leave after being there for that length of time not knowing any more than we did when we arrived! He doesn't explain a thing!!

Every time I take my Father to an appointment it takes at least three hours because they completely over book. I'm here this very second repeatedly watching people in the waiting room approach the overwhelmed front desk and complaining about their wait. I have also watched several people fall asleep, its unbelievable. I'm sure the doctor does a fine job, but save yourself the frustration and go elsewhere. Consider yourself warned.
