Too strongly opinionated about what I should do in her opinion. Came on too strong. Did not respect what I had to say.

provider came off as very judgemental of the care I was requesting (e.g. rolled here eyes & huffed). she did not have good bedside manner & seemed very unsympathetic. I've honestly never been treated like this before by any provider. disappointed b/c i had heard great things

Dr Johnson is engaging, asks questions, and offers options for addressing health issues. She was the first primary care physician in a decade who asked me if i would like physical therapy for my back issues, would i like an evaluation from a physologist; and would I like to re-evaluate my overall medications for need or appropriateness. These questions and actions made a significant difference in my well-being and I'm deeply appreciative for her inquisitiveness and thoughtfulness in making health improvements for me.

I have changed my primary care dr. to Dr. Johnson. She is easy to talk to, listens and explains things & checked me out thoroughly head to toe and did blood test and X-ray. I'm impressed!

the reception area is incredibly loud. everyone is yelling at patients and people on the phone so that they can hear over everyone else. patients can overhear these conversations since they are so loud. it's not a very good set up

Dr. Johnson sent her report in PDF form and I couldn't open it and then it completely disappeared from my My Health report site. This has never happened before!So I have no record of this visit!!!!! Probably a technical glitch, not Dr. Johnson's fault. Pease fix this!

it was an urgent visit and Dr. Johnson was direct, informative, and sensitive to the issue. the triage nurse I spoke to the day before who scheduled the appointment was also very thorough, direct, and got me scheduled quickly and easily for a visit.

I was 'called in' (her words; not mine) to alert me that I needed to start cutting back on Ambien, a medication she has prescribed to me for years now as Medicare will not pay for it in [age details removed]. What was that about? Why couldn't this have occurred on the phone? I presented a long list of documented chronic concerns that she would not discuss with me. Absolutely no concern about my tripping, falling, and bad balance issues. No concern or FOLLOW THROUGH to see that I was getting the correct physician to provide proper care. My documented medical history should require a orthopedics physician and a neurologist to review my health annually. Previous referrals go nowhere and I am just stumped at the level of inadequate health care I receive with relatively no other options at this point. This doctor is fine to ready my blood test results and notify me if there is a change in the tests. That's about all she does.

This practice is very busy. I realized that my pre-diabetes has been omitted from my medical record and my a1c has not been checked so I need to return or contact them. It's difficult changing doctors. It will take time to get used to Dr Johnson.

My first couple of appointments with Dr. Johnson were awkward and I didn't really like her, but now I think that she is a fantastic Dr. She listens to me [information removed to protect privacy].

This was my second first visit with a new provider in a year, so I'm very pleased with the amount of information discussed, including medical history, and the depth of analysis during a first visit. I'm looking forward to continuing with Dr. Johnson

I completed both e-checkin and the patient survey questions ahead of my appointment. wondered why front desk still asked me to confirm my demographics and why depression screening questions weren't included in the online survey so everything is completed before I arrive?

It's a long story but I was a patient of Dr. Johnsons's several years ago and due to an insurance change at work had to change providers. I bounced around from doctoe to doctor never really finding one I liked.10 months ago I moved to {location removed to protect privacy}. my new employer uses Legacy Insurance. I drove 5 hours to become a patient of Dr. Johnson's again. I trust her and her quality of care is amazing.Thank you Dr. Johnson.

it would be nice to have my numbers given to me such as T-cell counts, viral load, etc at the visit. I know there's some stupid app for that but I am anti-technology given I don't understand it well nor do I have time for it (long haul trucker) so those numbers given to me during my visit would have been nice.

DR Johnson is a great physician and I always feel like I'm in good hands in her care. Shes straight forward and makes sure I understand the particulars about what ever questions I'm asking. I'm glad I have a primary care physician that lets me know if I'm screwing up and tells me what changes I need to make to get better. Leslie is awesome.

The only negative is that I spent time filling out the eCheck-in questionnaire, but the receptionist still asked some of the same questions. It seems some of the info isn't visible to the receptionist.

When I called the office to make an appointment for an annual check up, I was told that need a specific reason for the visit, so I mentioned I was still experiencing daily headaches for months. I don't feel like Dr. Johnson has empathy for my concerns and I had decided upon leaving the office, on that day, that I needed to seek out another health care provider.
