Linda Johnston is the best primary care provider I have had at Virginia Mason. I trust her implicitly with medical decisions and appreciate her warmth and compassion.
Linda Johnson took the time to more than look in my sore ear. She listened to all of my areas of breathing and then said she wanted to check an area again. She actually discovered what turned out to be pneumonia, when I´ve had other care providers just to a cursory listen to my breathing because it´s chronically been noisy / difficult for me to breath.
She is always willing to spend any time necessary listening and explaining.
This is the 1st x in my adult like that I´ve had a lady dr. & really appreciate it very much. Just stared my 5th yr. with Linda!
Linda is an amazing,compassionate doctor who truly cares for her patients.
Ms Johnston listened and took her time with me--I really felt cared for and left with a clear plan for my issues
The care that Linda gives is amazing. She takes a personal interest in my wellbeing. I feel she truly cares about me.
Linda Johnston has been my primary care provider for several years now. She has provided the absolute best care and I believe the best advice and treatment during every visit and for every visit. Her bed-side manner is calm, positive, thorough, attentive flexible and personal. What a wonderful thing to have a health care provider who truly cares about my well-being. _____ a higher standard of health care; I would recommend her to anyone!
ARNP didn´t do an exam and didn´t have ANY idea why my symptoms were present. She also took. no time into looking into my history. I didn´t feel heard or taken care of.
Dr. Johnston is a great provider.
Linda Johnston is one of the best she´s kind, patient, caring.
Linda is the best!
I appreciate having a conversation & discussion about my life changes, relationship, etc. I trust an "MD" more, but I am very happy with this ARNP.
Pretty quick in and out appt. Given a script for a rash and on my way.
Linda has always been a good listener during every appointment I have had with her. She is quick to respond to any of my phone calls and concerns. I highly recommend her to family and friends.
I have medical anxiety because a previous health organization dismissed my diseased galbladder as being "in my head" until it became a medical emergency. Linda knows how to give it to me straight to calm me down. She keeps me grounded without mocking me for being worried. She is the perfect provider for a person like me, and I appreciate her immensely.
Linda is personable but to the point. She is very efficient and I like her a lot.
I am just weeks from 84 and with 23 years active duty in the military. So if I tell Linda very friendly & courtesy. Then that´s the way it is. Wonder young lady.
Linda knows me, understands my issues and shows genuine concern. I haven´t found that with everyone I see and I´m really grateful for that and her medical expertise.
Wonderful care provider!
Linda J. is very knowledgeable, caring, has good sense of humor, writes Rx´s correctly every time, & appreciates that I come prepared & participate in my care.

RELAXING relaxing - and trustful.
Exceptionally pleased with the care and resolution of my medical problem (migraines) that I´ve been dealing with for quite a while. First visit with this care provider (who specializes in migraines) and my issues were taken care of and seem to now be resolved!!
Would have liked to know what dose of the medication was being given and had input on it.
