Dr. Johnston is a great listener. He he patiently listens to the concerns as they are presented and provides a very proactive, actionable response. I recommend Dr. Johnston to anyone who asks or is seeking a cardiologist. He has been very consistent and willingly collaborative on plans of care when individuals like myself are not wholly sold on using medication and want to modify the process. He has a very gentle spirit w/a calm about himself that is comforting when one is overwhelmed w/having to go discuss his/her “pump” (aka heart) and his bedside manner is top notch. I had not been in the office in 3 yrs but I felt as if I had been there very recently. Dr. Johnston will retire before I chose to see another cardiologist. The staff and other clinicians were very warm, attentive, and welcoming.
