Ratings for Dr. James D. Johnston
Dr. Johnston always takes as much time as the patient needs to answer any questions or talk about any concerns that the patient has. He has helped me with my heart issues for the past two years and schedules the tests that need to be done in order to find the problem.
I've been fortunate to have received excellent medical care from a number of very good doctors over the years. That being said, I place Dr. Johnston in a category on his own, somewhere beyond excellent. I have had the good fortune to receive his thoughtful attention twice since 2008. He is the only medical professional to ever call me at home (on a Friday evening) to share and discuss the results of tests. I was very concerned and feeling a lot of stress both times I have received treatment from Dr. Johnston. On both occasions his calm, professional and attentive approach quickly gave me the sense that I had the right guy working for me and he cared about me and getting the best possible outcome. I would (and have) enthusiastically recommend Dr. Johnston to anyone in need of the services of and outstanding Cardiologist.
I had my initial consult with Dr. Johnston last week. Both my wife and I were incredibly impressed with him. He had made himself aware of my numerous tests and results and referred to them without having a note in hand. His staff was friendly, enthusiastic and welcoming. Dr. Johnston is both "book smart" and "people smart", qualities rarely found together in our experience. After 5 years we feel we have acquired what we have been lacking. We are so very pleased!
I saw Dr. Johnston for for a first consult today. It was honestly the best first appointment I've ever had with a physician. I'm an RN and have seen all kinds of "bedside manners" with dozens of physicians over the years. Many times I've wondered why some docs ever chose medicine as a profession. He was so reassuring and said several times that he was here to help me. It really meant so much to me. I did scroll through the ratings below and saw that Dr. Johnston has a past. Let's never forget that physicians are human like the rest of us and struggle with all the same human conditions that the rest of us do. He was absolutely fabulous and I have great faith in the treatment plan he has set forth for me simply because he was so kind and reassuring.
