Worst doctor's office ever ! Im asking for help; money isn't an issue; they refused my child cause she 3 months away from 12years. Her mental state is not good. I am a mother looking for help; I was told on the phone by the "perfect staff" well go somewhere else or wait 3 months. I WILL NEVER TELL PEOPLE TO COME HERE ...EVER

I am a 62 year old woman and I suffer from a suicidal depression since I was 24 years old, and I visited a lot of psychiatrists and I felt a laboratory mouse, very sad that they could do nothing for me. I made a decision and told myself this visit that I will do, I hope it is good and thank God, from the first date I went to Dr. Vernon Johnson (two years ago I am a happy woman) not only for medicine, but for humanity and compassion that Dr. Johnson has for his patients. One of the things that really caught my attention is the time he is with each patient, he is a person who listens to you carefully and cares about his patients. In what situation did the doctor who sent me a TMS treatment saw me, it is incredible (it is an expensive treatment, but the health insurance covers them, but the results are incredible) I also have a medication treatment and now I feel excellent, of course It is that a depressive person (not curable) but with a good doctor and a good treatment, one can be almos

Have struggled for many decades with major treatment resistant depression, bi-polar disorder & high anxiety. Dr. Johnson has seen me 1 x @ mo for 6 months & I feel better than I have in 25 yrs under regular psychiatric care! In my case, nothing short of a miracle & his attentive care.

Doctor Johnson has been treating my son for over 2 years. During this time he has helped us navigate a hospitalization stay and several crisis moments. In many instances he has met with us at 7am or after 7pm to help us through the tough times. He has built a solid-trusting relationship with my son that extends beyond basic mental health medical treatment. We are very thankful for his treatment and compassion. I would highly recommend him.

We have seen Dr. Johnson for about 8 years and wouldn't dream of ever changing doctors. He's a doctor that actually cares about his patients and works to provide the best care possible. My son actually looks forward to going to the doctor when it comes to Dr. Johnson.
