December 31, 2016

I felt like she was more concerned with the medications I was taking and getting them discontinued than amout my actual well-being and quality of life. I don't doubt she is an excellent physian but that was the impression I was left with on my first visit. She didn't give me the opportunity to discuss my current health concerns and reason for that visit. But, I will give it another try

December 16, 2016

Dr. Johnson is the nicest doctor I've seen in my lifetime. I feel she truly cares about me.

December 02, 2016

Speaking to Dr Johnson is like having a good friend come over that you haven seen in years. You warm up some cocoa and sit by the fire, talk about the good times and are filled with happiness and also a little sadness when you part. You always wish you had more time to spend with someone who means so much to you.

October 31, 2016

Love Dr. Laura Johnson.

October 18, 2016

I really like Dr. Johnson. She has been my Dr. for several years and knows my situation well.

October 18, 2016

I really like Dr Johnson she is personable and completely non threatening but clearly knowledgeable. I will continue seeing her for my care.

October 17, 2016

I had problems that I did not understand before visiting with the doctor. The diagnosis was suspected but the care provider was not sure. We had to wait about 24 for the test results, which confirmed the diagnosis. I am feeling much better now. Test delay was the only issue.

October 11, 2016

I feel like I didn't get a full physical exam. she did not address issues that I presented to the nurse. (which could have been a communication error)

October 10, 2016

Like I previously commented, the actual care and efficiency is excellent.

October 07, 2016

I felt this appointment was a waste of time. I made this appointment because my regular provider was unavailable. Basically, I was told to make an appointment with my regular provider to answer my questions and schedule any testing. I felt this provider could have easily arranged to have tests scheduled so I wouldn't have to make another appointment just to ask my regular provider the same questions.

October 02, 2016

The appointment just seemed impersonal. I didn't get much information -- just referrals to other specialists.

September 26, 2016

my first visit, felt alittle rushed

September 24, 2016

I felt like the visit was rushed. I waited longer than I saw the dr. dr was great, but I didn't have enough time to fully explain my concerns

September 18, 2016

Dr. Johnson always treats me with courtesy and concern. I feel extremely comfortable taking her advice and following her recommended procedures. I recently moved back to Utah from Texas and while in Texas missed sorely the level of care and concern that I have previously received from her and am very grateful to be back under her care.

September 17, 2016

she was interested on my condition

September 12, 2016

The doctor was a bit too fast and felt like she was in a rush.

September 06, 2016

The more I get to know Dr Johnson over the years of quality service, the more I realize how difficult it must be to a primary care provider and yet how easily this woman steps up to the task. There hasn't been a medical issue I have hit her with over the years that hasn't been met with a kind, loving and confident response and helpful information about that condition and its treatment etc. Recently I celebrated my birthday and with that comes another milestone. Another year added to the long life that I have lived and yet I have failed again (to my glorious benefit) to find a physician that even is in the same league as Laura Johnson.

September 05, 2016

Dr. Johnson helped me so much with her sincere concern and kind words! I felt so relieved after my visit because she was so reassuring.

September 05, 2016

Dr. Johnson is always very patient in discussing my concerns. She "gets it," I didn't have to explain why I was worried about something, she intuitively knew. She wasted no time in reassuring and recommending where to go from my appointment with her. Even when I think my worries make me sound crazy, she doesn't even flinch.

September 02, 2016

Dr Laura Johnson is a professional and she shows that she really cares about you. She always has a smile on her face and I always feel super about my visit when I leave there

August 30, 2016

Very tolerant of the patient's bad attitude about the visit.

August 26, 2016

just wasn't a good fit for me I suppose. just felt like a number. I didn't feel I could open up and talk to her without feeling like she was ready to move on

August 02, 2016

Dr. Johnson is very patient with me and takes the time to explain things and answer any questions I might have.

July 12, 2016

I have and do recommend Dr. Johnson to others. She is very personable and caring.

July 05, 2016

Dr. Johnson is great. I always look forward to visiting, discussing my health concerns, etc. I have all the confidence in the world she can handle any concerns, problems or even help me with my wife's health should the need ever arise. She is a awesome physician in an great facility with very nice support staff.

June 20, 2016

Dr. Laura Johnson is AMAZING!!

June 16, 2016

In this year of false promises and assurances of "better leadership" coming from Washington, I think our elected officials would be wise to learn from a true leader like Dr Laura Johnson. I person that is NOT interested in her own personal gain above her patients needs, but instead is a humble, hard working woman that not only changes the world around her one person and positive impact at a time, but also inspires others like my daughters to do the same.

June 14, 2016

My wife started going to Dr. Johnson also.

June 12, 2016

Dr Johnson is very thorough and attentive, she very attentive to to your questions and concerns.

June 04, 2016

I love Dr Johnson!

June 03, 2016

I always have a great experience with Dr Johnson

May 23, 2016

Dr Johnson was so nice and listened to all of my concerns.

May 20, 2016

She was very nice but seemed rushed. I don't feel like she really took the time to try and understand my concerns for energy/fatigue. She did focus on my thyroid which I was grateful it was normal but I have no idea about f/u now that it it normal and I still get symptoms.

May 12, 2016


May 01, 2016

Dr. Johnson is AMAZING! She is the only family practice doctor I will see.

April 30, 2016

Everything with my visit with Dr. Laura Johnson was very good.

April 21, 2016

Follow up was prompt and thorogh.

April 14, 2016

love her

April 12, 2016

have none, which is good

April 12, 2016

I was looking for a Primary Care provider and Dr Johnson will be just that. I like that her visit with me was short and to the point. Because her staff briefed her prior to coming into the room, she knew exactly what needed to be addressed. I feel that she took the time with me that I required and answered all of my questions. Not only will I be using her as my Primary Care, I will be switching the rest of my family to her as well.

April 05, 2016

Dr. Johnson is always very friendly, make you feel at ease. Always pays close attention, and is easy to bring up sensitive subjects. Overall FANTASTIC doc!

March 29, 2016

I absolutely loved Dr Johnson. I plan to keep her as my primary physician for as long as she will have me.

March 19, 2016

I had mentioned that I had a sore big toe but either she forgot because she didn't follow through or even look at it or she assumed I should wait until I get my next physical. She looked at my records, my chest breathing, and throat and then said to do a Z-Pack. I'm not much for using antibiotics but did it anyway. I came in for a one month long cough.

March 17, 2016

For a physical exam, it felt a little cursory. No urinalysis, breast exam, or pelvic, which I had always had with previous exams elsewhere. I understand these are specific exams, but was a little surprised at lack for a physical. I had a question about change of med which I didn't see until visit result was printed out at end of visit, which pa was unable to answer nor attempted to find out. I like Dr. Johnson and generally feel like I receive good care from her.

March 16, 2016

Year after year, Dr Johnson has become someone my family can really trust whether it's just a sinus infection, all the way up to the serious stuff and her fast referrals to other specialists. Just a diamond of the modern health system. Love ya Dr J!!!

March 09, 2016

Dr. Johnson is a very good Doctor. I have always felt at east with her. She is very honest and truly cares about her patients. I would highly recommend her to my family and friends.

March 07, 2016

Laura Johnson and staff are amazing!

February 15, 2016

I feel confident that she wants to help me.

February 14, 2016

Laura Johnson is the best. I recently was released from the hospital. Before coming in to meet with me Laura went over all the hospital summaries and was completely up to speed when she walked through the door. That is professional service. Not to mention she is a very compassionate, caring and genuinely concerned physician.

February 07, 2016

Laura Johnson has been very good.

January 26, 2016

Dr Johnson provides amazing care for her patients. The confidence and degree of trust I have in her abilities, her knowledge and the manner in which she cares for her patients is above and beyond. Dr Johnson is kind, considerate and very supportive. No questions I would recommend her to anyone.

January 26, 2016

Love my care provider

January 19, 2016

Excellent listening skills and asks good questions!

January 16, 2016

Love Dr. Laura Johnson. I won't ever see anyone but her! Sweetest most caring Doctor I've ever had :)

January 14, 2016

I was immediately impressed with Dr Johnson. She really listened to me and I didn't feel at all rushed. I'm so happy to have found her!!!

December 09, 2015

I always refer friends and co-workers to Dr Johnson. I think that she is a wonderful Doctor. I was having a really bad day when I saw her, she was kind and comforting. It made me feel that she really cares about her patients.

December 09, 2015

Well to be honest she's ok as a person, but not as a doctor at all! She's not willing to think outside the box when it comes to medications. Won't ever be willing to help you outside the office between visits when it matters ( by phone or email). Above all I would call her a "Passing the basket" kind of doctor collects her money, but never actually gives you help in return. Just a plain waste of time & hard earned money. Advise to the wise stay away from Dr. Johnson trust me you won't regret it.

November 23, 2015

Dr. Johnson was very professional and easy to talk to. This was our first experience with her and we were comfortable with her immediately.

November 18, 2015

Dr Johnson is by far one of the best Physicians I've had. Dr Johnson is thorough, knowledgeable and caring. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

November 09, 2015

This was a follow-up visit from an emergency room visit a few days earlier and Dr. Johnson made me feel very comfortable with follow-up care and answered all my questions

October 22, 2015

over all it was a good experience

October 20, 2015

I am so very happy with everyone there

October 18, 2015

Excellent dr and knowledge and care

October 11, 2015

My wife was very impressed with Dr. Johnson to

October 09, 2015

Dr Laura Johnson is a wonderful Doctor. Each time that I have been in to see her whether it has been a regularly scheduled visit or not, she was kind and understanding. If there is a problem with blood (which there has been) she is right on top of the situation and gets the answers that I need. I have left messages for her which always get returned in very quickly. I really like Dr Johnson and would refer her to friends and family.

October 08, 2015

My provider informed me very well about the differences between the nasal vs. shot vaccine.

September 11, 2015

Dr. Johnson has built a great rapport with my two teenage sons.

September 11, 2015

LOVE Dr. Johnson!! She takes the time to listen to me and addresses my concerns without me feeling rushed.

September 11, 2015

Dr. Johnson has built and excellent rapport with my two teenage sons

September 09, 2015

Just the usual "off the charts" amazing care that Dr Johnson provides everytime we see her. Thanks again Dr J!!! :)

August 25, 2015

Very professional and helpful.

August 22, 2015

I am very happy and grateful to my care providers, they are always professional, and caring.

August 19, 2015

We were going to play mini-golf with the family and out of the blue, my youngest daughter says, "Could we call Doctor Johnson and see if she wants to go?". I put my arm around her and told her that Dr J was busy taking care of other families and not just ours. How sweet that even my youngest sees how much we love this woman for her compassion and care, throughout my many years of health concerns. I have to confess though....I wanted to ask her to go with us too. he he. Love ya Dr J!!

August 19, 2015

So we have now crossed into a first for our family in that I had my first, "What if Dr Johnson ever LEAVES?" anxiety! lol. Only meaning that she truly is the greatest family physician we have ever had. Well until she gets snatched up by John Hopkins or Mayo Clinic, we are just going to enjoy this superstar doctor while we can. Thanks again Dr J!!!

August 17, 2015

Dr. Johnson is awesome! Always friendly, thorough and timely!

August 03, 2015

Dr. Johnson very approachable

August 02, 2015

I loved every person I made contact with. Laura Johnson was great! I prefer woman clinicians and I just moved from Texas. I hit the jackpot and will continue to see Dr. Johnson.

July 14, 2015

Dr. Johnson is a good listener - took the time to talk with me about my problem.

July 13, 2015

I cant recommend Dr. Johnson highly enough. Just love her as my primary physician

July 06, 2015

Truly a superstar of the U of U health system. Really mean this, Dr Johnson should give presentations to other physicians on how to serve patients with care and concern while juggling such a fast paced office environment. Just the concerned, compassionate look on her face as I was describing my recent time in the ER with severe bladder pain meant the world to me. But what good would that be without action, and again "Dr J to the rescue". With a quick phone call, she had me an appointment with a Urologist and did not want me leaving that office until they drew some blood to see how my levels were doing. I gave her a big hug and off she went...our doctor, our family friend. :)

July 05, 2015

Dr Johnson was great. I have and will recommend her to others.

June 15, 2015

Dr. Johnson is always professional, but friendly. She makes you feel very comfortable. Her bed side manners are outstanding!

May 26, 2015

Dr Johnson exceeds my expectations consistently.

February 11, 2015

Dr. Laura Johnson was awesome! I had a hard time leaving the PA I was seeing, due to insurance changes,and I was so worried about change, but Dr. Johnson was awesome! She has put my mind at ease. Thank you...oh, and her MA was awesome too

February 08, 2015

I really liked her a lot. I will be glad to be seeing her and have her as a doctor

January 30, 2015

My doctor listens and is very helpful about any concerns I have.

November 27, 2014

I have recommended my doctor. I feel very lucky to have found her and to be able to see her. She is very supportive and attentive during visits.

November 24, 2014

glad to make contact with a primary care physician who now knows my history to be prepared for possible needs in the future

November 24, 2014

THIS is where I feel the U of U health system really shines!!! I switched from the IHS system and have been going to Dr Johnson (Dr J as I call her) and would NOT go to anyone else. She is just an amazing woman who takes the time to really listen to my health concerns and question and I never feel rushed. From me blowing out my back to just general health check ups, I have consistently had wonderful experiences with Laura Johnson. We really feel like Dr Johnson is part of my family as we all go to see her now. The true test came when we spotted her and her family dining at a local steakhouse. We didn't want to impose but we just said hi and she flashed that fabulous smile and we so kind to us. Great team you have built at that facility!! Well done!

November 06, 2014

I felt she should lower her voice so others don't hear the conversation (she has a very loud happy voice) and I felt like she was in a rush because she never asked me if I had any concerns...I had to bring them up

October 28, 2014

Dr. Johnson is a very compassionate doctor. I had just had surgery and was having a follow-up with my primary care

October 14, 2014

Dr. Johnson has the best bed side manner. She is very comforting.

September 23, 2014

I rated question number 5 lower as my doctor and I did not discuss medications during our visit.

September 11, 2014

On my first visit she told me we had to take care of one thing at a time, when I was trying to tell her, I am having several medical issues going on. It she was really concerned about my well being, the referrals to specialists should have been schedule right after my first visit with her...

September 01, 2014

Too rushed and too rough during examination

August 18, 2014

Dr. Johnson is continually enthusiastic to see me & is genuinely concerned about my health.

August 14, 2014

takes time with me

August 12, 2014

Dr. Johnson really is a dedicated physician who cares for her patients.

August 11, 2014

Dr. Johnson is always thorough, she gives me her complete attention and always makes sure all my questions are answered. She is professional and friendly. I am thrilled to have her as my primary care physician. I HIGHLY recommend her, and have! :) Thank you Dr. Johnson!

August 10, 2014

I was actually quite disappointed in my visit. I chose this clinic/doctor for a second opinion after a different office was not very helpful. I brought personal data I had collected for over a year regarding my condition as well as information from online resources and felt that I had near-diagnosed the issue myself . . . but really wanted a doctor's guidance & input or confirmation of my findings. Many of my questions were left unanswered and blood test results were simply stated by another nurse, giving me no real conclusion or further direction on the matter from the doctor. I had really hoped to have more clarity on how to manage my condition but feel like I am on my own again. It just don't feel like I made any progress here.

July 23, 2014

Dr Johnson was very personable. She made me feel relaxed and I could tell she really enjoys time with her patients.

June 20, 2014

Dr JOhnson always is very attentive and efficient. she listens to what i need, explains what is happening and keeps me informed as to why she conducts certain tests.

June 05, 2014

Dr. Johnson is a very caring and competent physician. She always impresses me with her warmth and personal approach to my medical concerns.

May 26, 2014

May 23, 2014

It was an awesome experience and the first time we met with Laura. We left with all the confidence in the world that we were coming to the right place. We thank you!

May 12, 2014

I really like Dr. Johnson a lot. I am glad she is my physician.

May 11, 2014

I love this experience and the doctor. felt like they understood me and cared for my concerns and my overall health.

May 03, 2014

I actually didn't see my care provider, but the above is based on my many visits with her. Dr. Laura Johnson has taken excellent care of my health.

May 01, 2014

Everytime that I have seen Dr Johnson I leave feeling that she cares about me as an individual. She always takes time to listen to me and NEVER makes me feel rushed. She is great!!

May 01, 2014

Dr. Johnson seemed rushed and not totally concerned with my appointment.

April 15, 2014

Dr. Johnson is an excellent provider she takes time and listened to my concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson

April 06, 2014

I had a list of questions that Dr. Johnson was happy to address one by one. I never felt as if I were being rushed or that my time wasn't important.

March 27, 2014

I LOVE Dr Johnson! She is always so kind and caring. I feel like I am being taken care of by one of the best! It is always a pleasant experience when I see her.

February 10, 2014

This was my first visit to this doctor and I was very comfortable with her.

January 15, 2014

Dr. Johnson was very courteous and listened to all of my concerns and made recommendations and follow ups!

August 12, 2013

Felt very comfortable. The Dr. and Nurse seemed well informed and showed concern and a positive attitude throughout the visit.

August 05, 2013

Wonderful, thorough, compassionate care!

August 05, 2013

I was seen last Wednesday and had labs drawn. I have access to Powerchart and My chart and was able to see that the lab was very low. I have still not heard from this provider about the results. I would expect to hear something within a week of the appointment, so she still has a few more days. Other than that, Dr. Johnson took time to answer my questions and was very professional and personable.

June 10, 2013

Dr Johnson and her staff are great!

June 07, 2013

Dr. Johnson was very thorough and very kind and professional.

June 04, 2013

I LOVED her! She was very understanding and really listened to my issues. She has a great bedside manner and really made it a pleasure to go to the doctor. I wish I could see her for everything!

May 22, 2013

I appreciate the fact that Dr Johnson took the time to consult with Dr Owen, who has treated my mother for a number of years and is familiar with her health history.

May 20, 2013

BEST doctor we've ever had!

May 17, 2013

I was referred to see an ENT, and was told they would call to make the appointment and it has yet to happen.

March 25, 2013

The Doctor is absolutely wonderful!!! I will continue on with her :)

March 25, 2013

I didn't see Dr. Johnson - it wasn't necessary.

March 11, 2013

I love Dr. Johnson. I think that she is fast, caring , listens to your needs but yet is constructive when need be

March 07, 2013

I feel like Dr. Johnson is managing my health care very well. I appreciate her efficiency.

March 04, 2013

As a Medicare patient perhaps the "rules" were that it should be a limited exam - it was "limited" but probably adequate. She doesn't have my records yet - I should have asked about a Shingles shot. Previous doctors' exams were deeper in scope - but this is a new doctor for me, as we have just moved here.

March 04, 2013

I already love having Dr. Laura Johnson as my PCP! She seems to be very kind and down to earth and knowledgable.

March 03, 2013

Very impressed with Dr. Johnson.

February 18, 2013

I will relate my positive experience to family and friends.

February 06, 2013

The doctor was wonderful in handling news that I was very anxious about

January 28, 2013

Dr. Johnson always explains my treatment very well and answers any of my questions with a smile.

January 14, 2013

Dr. Johnson spent a lot of time with me, I get very anxious about certain health issues, and she took the time to listen to my concerns. I think Dr. Johnson is wonderful.

December 24, 2012

December 15, 2012

Very good. I was looking for a new doctor...I think I found one. I love the place

Dr. Laura Johnson is an outstanding physician. I really appreciate the care she provides me and my family, too. She is very caring and thorough. Whenever I have a problem, she is always willing to help me resolve it including insuring my prescriptions are current and filled, my shots are up to date, my labs are done regularly, my preventative visits ie, eye doctor, foot doctor, mammograms, etc. are done in a timely manner. Thank you Dr. Laura Johnson.

good experience

November 05, 2012

Dr. Johnson is truly amazing! Over the years, I've had to change doctors because of insurance requirements or the doctor has moved. While I liked most of my previous doctors, I've never felt better about my care since coming to Dr. Johnson. Whenever I talk with ANYONE at the clinic and they ask who my doctor is, I tell them Dr. Johnson. They ALWAYS say, "Don't you just love her? She is the nicest doctor they know and ALL of her patients love her! That's quite a compliment.

October 18, 2012

Past experiences were not very good. Changed Dr And this experience was wonderful! Nurse and Dr were so friend and made me feel welcome and at ease. So glad I decided to come back to SJ center. Saw Dr Johnson quite a few years ago and loved her then too. She makes me feel good about myself, listens to my problems, and makes me feel at ease. I feel that she really cares about me.

October 15, 2012

Dr. Johnson was very nice. She answered all of my questions and gave me a lot of information. I left her office feeling very confident in what to do next.

October 15, 2012

Dr. Laura Johnson did a great job of quickly diagnosing my problem and prescribing antibiotics for my sinus infection which was getting worse and worse each day.

October 08, 2012

Dr. Johnson is an amazing provider that explained things well and made me feel that I was a part of the decision making process.

September 14, 2012

As stated before, the indifference to the length of time this is taking to resolve the gallbladder issue and the amount of continuous pain I am in has left me with a very rough opinion of my caregiver. I can't believe i"m expected to wait 10 days from my initial visit to get this taken care of.

September 03, 2012

Such an exemplary doctor. Tank you so much

August 20, 2012

Provider was easy to talk to and made everything easy to understand since I have no knowledge of the healthcare field. My son felt comfortable

August 03, 2012

Very kind woman, I would visit her again.

July 06, 2012

Dr Johnson is excellent. I'll recommend her to anyone.

June 21, 2012

listened and provided appropriate care

June 18, 2012

June 11, 2012

The care provider was really great-

May 17, 2012

As I have commented before, I really like Dr. Johnson...she listens and seems to understand my concerns.

May 15, 2012

Dr. Johnson is great! I hope she never changes jobs! Keep her happy there!

May 04, 2012

Dr. Johnson was very helpful. Explained everything.

May 03, 2012

Only negative was being questioned as to why I now wanted to see a Family Practice MD when I had previously been seeing an Internist at another location. This made me feel very uncomfortable for awhile and I wondered what the issue was, but everyone was friendly when I just stated it was my choice!

April 20, 2012

I just felt like she wasn't listening to what I had to say about my daughter, which made things difficult.

April 12, 2012

Dr. Johnson has been one of the best providers I have seen in a very long time and sincerely seemed concerned for what I was going through and helped make a great plan to get me feeling better. I would and have suggested her to many

April 10, 2012

Dr. Johnson thoroughly explained the procedure. She had great eye contact and knows how to listen.

March 16, 2012

I just ended up having a reaction to the antibiotic, it inflamed my digestive system

March 16, 2012

Dr JOhnson is a great provider this is the first time I have seen her here. I have excellent service from here she took greeat care of my needs, thank you It is great to see other providers to help out when I am so far from the GWC during the day now

March 15, 2012

Check in didn't go as planned. The staff didn't know I was there so waited a long time. Dr and nurse were very apologetic when I was finally pulled back

March 14, 2012

It feels like both the nurse and the doctor were just glad to let you go.

March 09, 2012

I had a great experience.

March 08, 2012

Dr. Johnson was thorough in diagnosing my problem.

March 06, 2012

I have never been in better health in the past twelve years than under Dr. Laura Johnson's care. I really appreciate her patience with me in helping better my health. She has given me the confidence to get my life in order and is willing to take me step by step. Mahalo a nui loa (thank you very much) Dr. Johnson.

March 02, 2012

Always very difficult for me to begin with a new doctor. I thought this was a very good start for me.

February 29, 2012

I completely trust Laura Johnson, she has been my pcp for four years, and she alway's takes good care of me.

February 29, 2012

I was grateful she listened to my concerns and didn't hesitate to do things that would relieve my anxiety

February 23, 2012

I've loved all of my doctor's at this clinic so far. I was so happy that she actually listened to me! I went to an urgent care a while back for this problem and they completely threw it all out. It's so nice when a doctor takes you seriously!

February 10, 2012

Dr. Johnson was professional as well as personable. I felt she listened to me, a quality that is lacking in a lot of doctors. I have already recommended her to several other people I know who are looking for doctors. Her bedside manner was excellent and I have zero complaints.

February 08, 2012

I really enjoyed Dr. Johnson. She did not say anything to be about how long it took me to come and see a doctor even though I had some ailments for about 5 years. I felt that she was very understanding.

February 03, 2012

Dr. Johnson was very friendly and kind and I think that helped ease the patients nerves. I appreciated the advice she gave as well. It is, however it is hard for me to take nutritional advice from her considering she may not take extremely good nutritional care of herself.

Being at a new facility was a challenge.
