Great doctor and staff.
*Dr. Johnston is very caring, truly concerned for his patients. Listens to me. When I said I was in terrible pain he was so gentle, caring an just a wonderful person. GBMC should be honored to have him.
Excellent care.
They are great!
seemed rather rushed and I left wondering about some of the things said. Didn't feel as though the time spent was sufficient
One of the best doctors I have ever had the pleasure to meet..
i?ve really been impressed with Dr. Johnston?s respect for me as a patient. He?s kept me informed and genuinely seems to care about how I?m doing.
Good experience.
