Dr. Johnson is very easy to talk to. His understanding of my condition and his advice is very encouraging.

June 21, 2016

Good experience

good

April 10, 2016

Excellent experience.

March 29, 2016

With no known method of healing FSHD, there is a confident assurance that I am the most important person in the exam room. This means the world to me and my family....again, Thanks

March 18, 2016

My only bad experience was not with the resident dr but the neurologist that spent less than 5 minutes in the room. Said that my nerve endings were probably dieing off. When I tried to get an explanation for this he said have a nice day and walked out. I still don't know what it means. The neurologist I've seen in the past was great. The resident was great but I felt like we drove 4 hours to get there for no reason.

December 14, 2015

good experience

November 29, 2015

Technician and Doctor Johnson were friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I felt confident talking with Dr Johnsoon.

November 03, 2015

Dr Johnson and the rest of the staff have been very helpful and caring. While the diagnosis is not going to be considered good, they help with questions about it, and what we could expect throughout.

October 06, 2015

Dr. Johnson and others I saw were excellent in all these areas.

August 27, 2015

overall good experience

August 13, 2015

The Doc tried to beat me over the head right up front with his credentials and textbook definitions...THEN, he came around ;)...TBL - His ability to bring together the various specialists was remarkable...the follow-ups have been miraculous, (Evan, Rob, Michelle and Abby are superb!)...Amanda took a good history and performed some basic 'tests' which I thought was good for a medical student. When the Doc came back in, sat down and asked what questions can I answer, seeming to have no urgency in his manner, I WAS IMPRESSED! I'm really anxious to see where we are going, and how we're going to get there. PS: I'd love to have been a fly on the wall at the staff conference, after my visit..."Can you believe this guy?"..."Really into finding solutions to his CMT2 disease, isn't he?"

July 04, 2015

Love Dr. Johnson he listens to me he is great

March 11, 2015

all of the people that spoke with me on this visit were wonderful and put me at ease and helped me feel comfortable with the procedure I was getting

February 27, 2015

I feel Dr Nicholas Johnson treated me with respect, gave me helpful information, scheduled further tests, and has my complete confidence in dealing with my medical problems.

December 29, 2014

I am very glad I change doctors to Dr Johnson I feel he understands my concerns more and he helps me more with my problems and pain

December 27, 2014

I have always felt very confident in the abilities of Dr. Johnson. He is very good at what he does.

November 04, 2014

Thanks!!

July 18, 2014

As explained earlier, I feel like I am tossed around from one doctor to another and instead of knowing anything about my problem...I am just treated with drugs( expensive ones) which have no effect..except in my bank acct.! I need a doctor who can stop "guessing" at what I am experiencing. I would rather feel this misery, than escalate the problem with "test" drugs!

May 30, 2014

Very nice thank you

May 22, 2014

Dr. Johnson is awesome and so is Abby Smart. I also had some visiting doctors there and they were great too. I've loved everyone I've worked with there.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Johnson failed to call me a day or two prior to the appointment or even that morning to tell me he would not be able to perform the procedure. He never did explain why he could not proceed except to say that the equipment he needed had not come.

February 17, 2014

Dr. Soltanzadeh was most pleasant to work with, as was Dr. Johnson. I felt comfortable and confident in their work.

January 17, 2014

I was disappointed in the lack of urgency my care provider seemed to have regarding helping me to understand the source of my disability. I was hoping for a more thorough and comprehensive assessment.

December 20, 2013

Dr. Johnson did say he would prescribe me a medication if my symptoms become unbearable and stated the name of the RX, I did not write it down and do not know the name of the RX. Could someone let me know the name of it and strength, dosage he would want me to take if it becomes unbearable?

November 15, 2013

Doctor Johnson has been very nice to me and has been a great help to and what i have.

November 04, 2013

Dr. Johnson is awesome!
