I went to Dr. Johnson for evaluation of some symptoms I've been experiencing for years. It seemed like diet, exercise, anti-inflammatory medications, stress management, nothing had been helping. He, as expected, ordered more tests. When they all came back normal, he told me my pain came for no reason, probably due to deconditioning and being "out of shape" and I'm a 28 year old nurse. He gave me a list of exercises for elderly patients and sent me on my way. Would NOT recommend.

I'm chronically ill & I have been to over 20 different doctors for my illnesses over the past 20 years (that includes Mayo clinic) I can honestly say I feel safe & comfortable with Dr. J. He CARES. He knows what he's doing & if he doesn't he will seek out answers. When you're constantly sick you want a doctor that A. Knows their field of expertise & B. Cares what happens to you. He fits both criteria. I TRIPLE LOVE DANIELLE his nurse. Not a fan of the big office, but not a problem.

I saw Dr. Johnson and felt he was a decent person, listened well, was authentic in his caring about my condition. I contacted his office to get injections of Synvisc, for painful arthritic joints, which I had before and were very successful. Dr's nurse called back saying that Dr Johnson said I should see an orthopedic doctor. I felt 'pushed' out the door. I'm guessing Dr Johnson either wasn't familiar with Synvisc or didn't know feel comfortable doing them. Very unhappy with the treatment.

I saw Dr. Johnson for a period about a year ago, when the doctor I had been referred to was unavailable. When the referred doctor came back, I switched my care. Later, I found myself without a rheum when this dr went on vaca. So I called Dr. Johnson, planning to permanently switch back over to him during a flare up. His office told me that my file had a note not to ever schedule me again and that Dr. Johnson will never see a patient if they have gone elsewhere for care. Unethical. Bad practice.
