You don't tell a patient that they owe $40 and then change it after a few visits, where I owe you more! This was your fault, not mine! I should have known not to go to Shannon Johnson the first time, after seeing all the bad reviews!

Saw Dr. Johnson for 6 plus years. Got to the point she just wanted to increase meds which didn't help at all. She stopping listening to me which made me find a new doctor. Found out I was on 700mg of antidepressants that I didn't need. Cut down to 100mg and starting to feel great. Be mindful when a doctor doesn't listen find one that will.

Honestly, it saddens me to see all of these negative reviews. I was diagnosed with bipolar depression after being in a study during childhood. I was placed on Lithium as a result of that. Lithium may be a good choice for some, but the reality of that specific medication is that it is harsh on the body and organs. With the help of Dr. Johnson, not only was a given a safer medication, but for the first time I wasn’t being overly medicated. I went from 5 drugs for different things, to three. I was overly prescribed and a nobody to the psychiatrist before her. Now, after almost 10 years I am in the best place of my life. With her help. There may be a wait, but that comes with a doctor that cares and listens. I was diagnosed with postpartum, and she helped me through that with correct medication and therapy recommendations. The complaints are only from people looking for a quick fix. If you care about your wellbeing and health, she is perfect. Five stars always.

Dr Johnson takes the time to listen to your issues. She isn't a pill pusher. Many people come in with their own idea of what they want to take and what they think their problem is. That is not how she works, she listens, then will diagnose. Her wait time can be long at times. I think she may overbook herself, but that is my only complaint.

I am an 18 year old who suffers from severe anxiety attack’s. I had an anxiety attack in her office & the doctor refuses to listen and take me serious. She put me on anti-psychotics & rufesed to give me anything for anxiety, because when I was younger I abused xanax. This doctor doesn’t take patients serious & lacks a caring attitude

She wouldn't even put in the effort to "properly" diagnose me with postpartum depression or anything else for that matter. Why? Because that takes time, and EVERY appointment I have EVER had with this rude doctor I was waiting for an hour longer than i should have been because she is ALWAYS running behind and then rushing through my appointment because I WASNT A PRIORITY. 0 stars

The wait time is unbelievable. She has never been on time. I was just told by thr receptionist that if i reschedule my appointment that was supposed to be an hour ago, that they would charge me with a cancellation fee. Wven though its not my fault that shes running so late. Also, they tried charging me a $40 copay when they didnt have my insurance on file? How is that even possible. They always bill me since they dont know how to collect money properly.
