Such a professional, thorough, and kind doctor....and Dr. Johnston's staff is exactly the same. They made a scary experience much better by carefully explaining what was happening and making sure that I understood.

My sister has gone to Dr. Johnston for years with heart problems-congestive heart and has had a stroke. Due to such good care of Dr. Johnston she is still here nearly 15 years later. So, when I had to have stomach surgery, I went to see Dr. Johnston to see if my heart was OK for surgery at age of 73. I have now had 5 stomach surgery and last year passed out 5 times and Dr. Johnston kept saying it was my heart and finally after 3 days and night with nothing showing up, my heart dropped to 30 and I had to have pacemaker last year. My husband also goes to Dr. Johnston with AFib and thickening of heart. We have all confidence in his Judgement when it comes to the heart. My whole family highly recommend Dr. Johnston!!!!

Dr. Johnston is a very dedicated and caring cardiologist. Had it not been for his persistence to find the cause of my constant complaint of chest discomfort, I would not be alive today. Because he listened to me even when less invasive procedures indicated no problems with my heart, he soon learned about the real cause of my problem. I am truly grateful and blessed to have him as my cardiologist!!

Dr. Johnston and his team are easy to talk to and will sit an answer questions and explain things that I don't understand the first time. I have been with them for over six months and have found them very professional and they explain all my options so I feel like I have a say in my care. I would definitely recommend them as experts in their field - and very kind and compassionate. I always leave them feeling better.

Love dr. Johnston and his staff but have a problem with email confirmations. Received one yesterday that just stated confirmation of appointment with our HCA physician. No doctor name and it didn’t state that dr. Johnson needed to change our scheduled appointment. Very confusing! Had to call the phone number listed to see who email was from,

Dr. Johnston displayed compassion, professionalism and expertise. My experience happened very fast. I was having what I thought was acid indigestion and his office got me in quickly for an appt and then straight to an arteriogram and then double bypass surgery that saved my life. I trust Dr. Johnston and the staff at Centennial with my life, literally!

My father has been a patient for many years. Dr. Johnston is a wonderful, knowledgeable, caring, personable young doctor. He always takes time to answer any questions. He never makes you feel dumb for asking a question. We owe my dad's health at 86 to the wonderful care by Dr. Johnston. He is a modern day Dr. Marcus Welby...

Dr. Johnston is the best. I have been Dr. Johnston’s patient for 12 or so years. In the last two years or so I faced two open heart surgeries in 7 months, pluse a stroke. It is very difficult to express my confidence in Dr. Johnston. Before Dr. Johnston I had two other cardiologist that I felt did not have my best interest at heart. My primary care physician found Dr. Johnston for me. Highly recommended him and I have never considered leaving his practice. Love him and his staff.
