Dr. Johnson is awesome. She fully informed me of all options for specialized care and encouraged questions or concerns. I walked in concerned and walked out excited to have a health plan in place. Dr. Johnson's entire staff is friendly, calming and extremely efficient. All tests, prescriptions and procedures were scheduled within an or so after my appointment and relayed to me. Incredible.

Dr. Johnson and her staff are highly competent, efficient and yet allow time for questions and concerns and they are extremely kind. The experience ,somewhat urgent in nature,could not have been handled any better (This includes the efficient scheduling of multiple consultations,additional procedures, and tests.)

They took way more time than I expected but it still felt rushed concerning the seriousness of the subject of cancer. I think it would help to say at the offset "we have a whole hour so you can relax and take a breath. We can talk about everything you need to ask."

It was hard that my daughter-in-law could not even sit in the waiting room because of covid. She even had her covid card on her. There was a wait for each areas of this visit. From Exam-to consult. All contact with staff was very impressive.

Everyone I have either met in Dr Johnson's office In person or on the phone have been extraordinarily kind and comforting to me! This is a scary journey I'm going through, but at least I have a "badass" group to help me on this journey
