I have twice accompanied my wife to appointments with Dr. Johnstone. I have been impressed with the breadth and detail of her observations, her obvious competence, her thoroughness & her communication and follow-through.

I have seen Dr. Johnstone a few times over the last several years. I never had a great feeling after any of my visits however she is one of only a few Neuro eye specialist in the valley. My visit today was the straw that broke the camels back. She was RUDE! I waited a half hour (which is good for Dr. Johnstone, normally much longer) and after 15 minutes into our visit, she abruptly dismissed me by saying "I dont want to talk about this anymore" and walked out of the office.

My experience with Dr. Johnstone was a pleasant event, stemming from a sudden stroke with vision loss. She was very professional, set up the testing I would need and assisted me in getting appointments with other needed specialists. I found her to be the very person and Doctor that I needed in a time of need.

Dr Johnstone was seemingly nice and helpful the first visit, but upon follow-up visits she appeared very irritable and like she no longer likes what she does. She was very unhelpful, just like her office help, and didn't return phone calls. She aborted her Hippocratic oath.... she should do us all a favor and retire from medicine. I ended up going to a general neurologist who diagnosed me on the fist visit, something Dr Johnstone failed to do after several visits!
