I first met Dr. Johnson when I was in the hospital and needed emergency surgery. I was an absolute emotional wreck. Dr. Johnson spent time talking to me and then asked her ostomy nurse to come visit me. She also spent a great amount of time talking to me and putting my mind at ease. My surgery went perfect, incision healed amazingly well and all follow-ups have been great. Every person in her office is extremely friendly and helpful.I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson!
