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 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

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.

August 05, 2013

Wonderful, thorough, compassionate care!

June 10, 2013

Dr Johnson and her staff are great!

Very caring practitioner, would definitely recommend her to others.

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 12, 2013

I was very impressed with my entire visit.

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

I am confindent in my doctor. I am comfortable with her and will continue to see her.

December 17, 2012

I really appreciate Dr. Laura Johnson. She always takes such excellent care of me and my family. She is the best primary care manager I have had in decades. I am very happy being in her care.

December 15, 2012

This is my first visit with Dr. Johnson and I couldn't be more pleased. She was very professional, friendly, and I look forward to having her as my primary care provider.

December 14, 2012

Very happy with care.

December 11, 2012

I have recommended Dr. Johnson, and the U of U system to several of the people who live in my apartment complex. I feel very well taken care of...

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

December 03, 2012

Dr Johnson was great!

November 19, 2012


November 19, 2012

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.

November 16, 2012

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 29, 2012

there are not many female drs. near where I live. It is great Dr. Johnson is out here in Daybreak

October 29, 2012

Dr. Johnson was wonderful. She was very patient with both of my young children.

October 22, 2012

I have already recommended Dr Johnson to others

October 19, 2012

I love Dr. Johnson.

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. 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 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 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

Dr. Johnson is always friendly and thorough. She always makes you feel like a patient not a number.

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

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 16, 2012

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

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

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 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.

January 05, 2012

Being at a new facility was a challenge.
