What People Say About Dr. Robert Johnston, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
I came to the immediate care clinic 5 minutes before they close, with a cactus spine splitter in my thumb that I couldn't get out myself. What I thought would be a 5 min procedure turned into an hour adventure because the object in my thumb was bigger than expected and had gone into the flesh quite deeply. Dr. Johnston and his assistant Arick were terrific! Super nice and very empathic, they went out of their way to help me. Thanks to both of them for doing a great job and taking the extra time!

About Me


I practice in the Northwestern Immediate Care in Evanston.  No appointments are needed.  I am happy to see anyone that walks in the door day or night. I prefer to have a respectful conversation with my patients and arrive at a mutually agreed upon course of action taking into account not only the medicine, but also the totality of the rest of the patient's life.
