Dr. Johnson is the best doctor I've been to. He knows what he's doing.

August 28, 2015


August 25, 2015

Dr. Johnson was great and is easy to talk to. The only concern I have is that I hadn't had a physical for about four years and when I scheduled the appointment I said I needed a complete physical. While Dr. Johnson talked to me about specific concerns I had and ordered lab work I don't feel like I had a physical exam. He listened to my heart and the nurse took my blood pressure and that was it.

August 24, 2015

My care provider made the time I spent, made it very clear about my treatment

August 23, 2015

Dr. Johnson is a fantastic medical professional. I have enjoyed my many years of association with him.

July 24, 2015

I had brought all the pills I am taking now and he went through each and told me which to take and which to drop. Last year he told me to drop one and I haven't had a kidney stone since. So he must know what he is doing for me. He had me drop another this year so I will see if it changes anything as good as last years drop.

July 09, 2015

Dr. Johnson is an amazing doctor. He is very kind, very caring and sympathetic. He listens to what problems you have, and doesn't make you feel rushed. He really makes you feel at-ease and describes everything that is going on well enough that you don't even need to ask questions afterwards. Seriously awesome guy.

Dr. Johnson is the best, as always. Very professional, personable and genuinely interested in what I had to say.

January 02, 2015

Very friendly

January 02, 2015

He was in and out like a tornado. He talks faster than I do which is almost impossible! That would be OK except I never once felt like we had completed any one thing. He just repeated what I said, typed it into the computer and suddenly he was handing me 2 papers he printed out and he was gone. When I tried to figure out what I was supposed to do from his nurse, she really couldn't get an answer either. So I called the Clinic when I got home, and STILL could not get an answer. So I just went out on my own and took care of things myself. His nurse was supposed to call me back, but she just blew me off and that was the end of it. I never got a call. I went there looking for a new Family Dr. because mine is retiring. After this treatment, I am still looking. I feel like about maybe 1/4 of the things I went in for were addressed. He ran a full blood panel on me and even though I have Coronary Artery Disease, he didn't even have them do my cholesterol. REALLY??? That really says something about his thought process. Kind of scary. I will not be coming back to see him ever.

April 26, 2014

Dr Johnson was friendly, courteous, & competent. He explains things so that I can understand. He includes me in the discussion of my health issue.

April 25, 2014

Dr Johnson is one of the best docs I've seen in a long time in terms of bed-side manners and being reasonable and approachable in his decisions; I really appreciate how he tries to guide me into making cost-effective common sense decisions while pushing me to make lifestyle changes (as opposed to just ordering every test he can and putting me on all sorts of meds). His energy and friendliness are awesome. The only thing I would comment is that he does tend to talk over the patient a bit too much; I have a bit of a hard time communicating my answers to his questions because he's a bit quick to assume my answers. Regardless, he's still a keeper.

April 25, 2014

he is great with kids

April 15, 2014


April 13, 2014

I'm happy to have more input about handling my pain and finding out ways to ease it.

I've been coming to the same doctors office for 9 years now and it's due to the way the staff is and how nice the office is

February 27, 2014

Dr. Johnson is very busy, but he takes the time to pay attentio0n to my needs. He washes his hands, he smiles, and makes me feel like I'm the only one there. Very knowledgeable about his subject. I would recommend him to everyone.

February 27, 2014

Since I have had Jr Johnson as my Dr I have enjoyed his and his staffs proffesionalism.

February 24, 2014

Dr. Johnson is an awesome doctor, give him a raise!

February 24, 2014

My son adores Dr. Johnson. They were singing Lego Movie songs together- little things like that really help put a kid at ease.

January 25, 2014

October 31, 2013

I have seen many doctors in my life. But none of them can even compare with Dr. Matt Johnson. He is compassionate and I know he truly is concerned with my well-being. I can't say enough good things about this man.

October 18, 2013

Wonderfully kind and gentle fantastic bed side manners. Thorough, knowledgeable, and sanitary competent. Excellent experience

October 18, 2013

Dr J is fantastic. I do recommend him every-time I can

October 18, 2013

I enjoyed the Doctors kind, gentle bed side manner. He is very thorough, he asked if we had any questions and any requests he answered them and was very knowledgeable, and willing to check patient out and not by any verbal complaints, but, taking the time and examining my child before he diagnosed or answered any thoughts or possible ideas etc. We will definitely continue our pediatrician care as we have for the last 5+ years.

October 14, 2013

Dr. Johnson is simply the best doctor I have ever had.

October 03, 2013

Dr. Johnson always gives my husband the best care. He is one of the few doctors that understand my husband's medical problems and treats him with genuine concern. Plus, he always makes us laugh!!!!

I can't say enough good about Dr. Johnson. He is just the best there is. My dad loved him when he was alive and so do we!

June 29, 2013

Thank you Dr Johnson.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Johnson was amazing I was surprised and delighted he took the time to get to know us before just slapping a diagnosis. He was knowledgeable and took care of all concerns. Even took my son for stickers and walked to the exit. Best experience ever other then my family doc no one has matched his service. I will be returning to see him for my family needs!!

June 24, 2013

I always feel very comfortable talking with Dr. Johnson. I feel I can trust his opinion whenever I need help with a medical problem.

June 17, 2013

Dr. Johnson is GREAT!

May 21, 2013

Dr J is wonderful. He is so through and truely concerned about my health and me as a person. He loves being a Doctor and helping people, a great doctor. He always remembers to ask about my husband's health which reinforces to me that he cares about me as a person. I've never felt like a "number" only as a friend. It's easy to trust his knowledge. Not all doctors have this gift. We are furtunate to have him watching over us. We depend on him. Thanks

April 24, 2013

Dr Johnson is always very friendly and always treats me for what I have come in for plus always asks if I have any other concerns. He always listens and helps and doesn't rush me out the door.

April 18, 2013

great staff great visit every time

April 15, 2013

Dr. Johnson is great!

April 09, 2013

They don't come any better than Dr. Mathew Johnson

March 27, 2013

I appreciate the time that was taken with me on one of the issues that i came in for, but there was another problem that I came in with that i would have liked to have had more time to discuss and look at different options for treatment and look at the cause of the problem rather than prescribing a prescription right away.

March 22, 2013

Dr. Matt Johnson is by far one of the best doctors I have ever had.

March 22, 2013

I love this Dr., he is great -- not dry, boring, nor treat you like you are just another specimen or that your problems/concerns are ridiculous or whatever; Dr's get used to knowing all this stuff but so many of them blow you off so quickly as if you too are supposed to be up to the same speed as they are. Dr. Johnson has never treated me like that. He asserts his authority but with respect and deference for my concerns and with care to treat me as a real, living individual. The only feedback I marked below a 5 was because during my physical, which was almost stellar, nothing was mentioned about my blood pressure. I noticed after the visit that the paperwork showed it's still a bit high. My guess is that Dr. Johnson didn't feel it was a concern given all of my other markers were great and I have been consistently moving in the right direction for over a year (eating better, exercising, losing weight). Still, I would feel better if I knew he noticed it and wasn't too concerned about it. If the worst you can say about a Dr. is that he didn't overplay one minor condition and throw a bunch of medicine down your throat, well then this Dr. is in the the top 1% for sure. :D

March 14, 2013

Dr. Johnson was fabulous. I came to him as the last appointment of the day, he had not seen me before and had to get tests done etc. He was very relaxed and thorough and gave me great explanations of my test results, and advice for me. He made me feel calm and well cared for. He sent me to South Jordan for more tests and checked on my results, sent me an email checking on me and letting me know he had seen my tests. I think he is wonderful!

March 12, 2013

Thank you, for being you, Dr. Johnson. It is wonderful to be so well cared for (and about) by my primary care physician! The combination of your medical knowledge, open communication with me, teamwork with specialists, and personality reassures me that I am in such good hands.

February 04, 2013

We love Dr. Johnson!!! He is part of our family!!! He takes good care of us!!!!

February 04, 2013

At first when meeting Dr. Matthew Johnson. I was a bit off-standish because I didn't feel like he knew what he was doing. Must have been a bad day. : o ) Since then which I have had many visits, he has been a peach!

January 17, 2013

I would like to see more focus on the skill and movement well being of the kids. Not just if they are physically well. My last doctor took the time to check that they could do the talking and "playing" that they should be able to do at that age. EXAMPLE: pick up small objects, match shapes, follow instructions, copy a pattern, stack blocks,

January 07, 2013

doctors should take into consideration that the patient knows their body and what's happening to them and how they feel probably better than the doctor.

December 27, 2012

Dr. Johnson is great!

December 27, 2012

Dr Johnson is great

December 20, 2012

outstanding care no problems, very happy i found this place having just moved here and may need surgery on my back in the future in the mean time dr. johnson has taken great care of me

December 18, 2012

I love Dr. Gellner! She is awesome. I can't say enough about how well she treats my family. I am grateful we found her.

December 04, 2012

I felt somewhat rushed and only saw the physician for a few moments. I really wanted to discuss a few other things, but didn't feel I had the chance to bring it up

November 29, 2012

After my experience using Intermountain Health Care community clinic, I made the decision to resume care under Dr. Johnson, as I value his professionalism, knowledge, care, compassion, bedside manner, etc. I just would appreciate not feeling as in any multi doctor clinic, that I'm being rushed like cattle in/out of the office.

November 26, 2012

Makes my health issues less stressful because I have such a awesome Dr.

November 16, 2012

Doctor Johnson is a people person. Great people skills, yet very competent doctor.

November 07, 2012

September 17, 2012

Dr. Johnson is an awesome care provider:)

September 17, 2012

I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson for some years now and I continue to be very impressed with him, his professionalism and knowledge. He does not make you feel that in any way he is superior to you if you ask less than an intelligent question, etc. He's a great physician.

September 10, 2012

Dr Johnson spent a good deal of time with me discussing my health concerns and helping me create a plan of attack. It's nice to feel like your important and that your provider has time for you.

September 10, 2012

Love Dr. Johnson he is awesome

September 03, 2012

Dr Johnson is enthusiastic, friendly and courteous makes you feel that you are personally important to him.I'm glad he's not on military duty this winter.

September 03, 2012

Great visit every time

August 17, 2012

I was nervous seeing a new doctor because usually I have to see several before I can find one that actually seems to care at all about what I have to say. This doctor blew me away with how passionate he seemed about finding out exactly what needed to be fixed and how best to fix it, and he made sure I was with him every step of the way so that I knew exactly what steps I needed to take to get as healthy as possible.

August 13, 2012

Dr Johnson never rushes thru my concerns

August 04, 2012

Dr. Johnson is awesome. I have anxiety pretty badly bit I always leave there feeling a whole lot better.

July 27, 2012

DCommunication on the follow-up wasn't very good!

July 23, 2012

Dr. Johnson is the best. So glad he was back.

July 16, 2012

My physician was excellent and very professional. I would definately feel comfortable using his care in the future.

July 04, 2012

April 17, 2012

Dr. Johnson is friendly and shows genuine concern and understanding for his patients. I would definitely recommend him to a friend.

April 14, 2012

I have in fact recommended this doctor to my friends and chose to wait for an appointment until he returned from his military deployment as I find him to be very genuine and pragmatic in his practice.

April 13, 2012


April 06, 2012

Glad to have Dr.Johnson back.I feel that I can trust him. He knows me and is concerned about me personally. He's excellant!
