Linda Johnston took the time to ask/answer questions and left the room to talk to another provider to make sure I was getting the right information about my health issues. Thank you!

December 2016
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.

December 2016

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!

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.

May 2016
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.

May 2016
Linda is personable but to the point. She is very efficient and I like her a lot.

May 2016
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.

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!!

November 2015
Would have liked to know what dose of the medication was being given and had input on it.
