He was a nightmare. He missed a seizure on my EEG the ER doc told me about, and was ready to release me. I asked about the seizure and he was surprised, saying he didn't look for that because I wasn't describing seizure-like incidents. He halted my release and then confirmed an epilepsy diagnoses. He put me on meds and said he couldn't see me until Oct. (this was June!). When I asked questions, he told me I sounded like I wanted to have something more serious! He's an incompetent bully.

If I could put zero stars, I would! He was the rudest doctor I have ever encountered. Basically told me I was a liar and told me this wasn't a neurology issue and not his problem. He also told me to get my anxiety under control and that what I was explaining wasn't possible. He didn't let me talk or give info or ask questions and actually told me to stop talking. It was appalling. I would never, ever recommend him to anyone ever . My other doctors and nurses couldn't believe how he treated me.

Dr Johnson jr was my brothers neurologist when he was admitted after a medical condition. His compassion and bedside manner that he showed was above anything we had expected he made my brothers condition easy to understand. Sadly my brother did not survive. Dr Johnson consoled our family in this time of grief. He truly is a gift to the Norton family and we are grateful that he cared for our brother. Thank you Dr. Johnson!

Was called in to consult on my case due to blackout and shaking episodes. Never examined me, just walked in to my hospital room and said I can't tell you what is wrong with you but I know what isn't. I am suspending your driver's license for 90 days. I am treated by another neurologist in Philadelphia and asked him to contact her before making any determination on my case and he refused. Then walked out of my room and told the nurse to discharge me. Turns out it was a medication I was on.

He's a very rude man accused me of being a complainer said my BP readings didn't matter to him. He gave me symptoms I never had. He even went so far as to start shouting at me and arguing with me over why I was in the hospital. He even stormed out of my hospital room at one point. He went so far as to say that I was lying and that I stiffed the chemicals I work with! I would never trust him for anything. Some of this was heard by a nurse who said, she'd be a witness if needed.

I would never recommend this doctor to anyone. My experience with Dr. Johnson was that he didn't understand my daughters condition and accused her of lying about how she felt. He didn't try to understand that she was suffering from a autonomic condition called POTS, that had been diagnosed at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester; He said that he didn't believe in that kind of stuff. We immediately took her out of the hospital under his care and had her treated elsewhere. He's dangerous.
