Ratings for Dr. Nicole Johnson
Reading that she is compassionate to others is odd! But, reading that she’s not liked, I have to agree with those comments. She has NO bedside manner and basically wants to get you in and out the door asap (add to that: fully medicated with a cocktail of drugs as well). She is NEVER on time. There have been times we have waited more than an hour to get in. She will put on her, “I care, I’ll help” face in the beginning but wait for it it’s coming, she is cold, uncaring. She doesn’t have children of her own so really how understanding of a child can she really be? I’ve never met a more egotistical doctor who talks about the papers she’s writing or the conferences she’s attending, stop showing off, perhaps take a conference on bedside mannerisms?And if you question why medications need to be added - instead of explaining she acts condescending. I wish she’d take a lesson from our family doctor who is the most genuine person in that industry. She’s in it for money sadly, not to help others.
Dr Johnson is very personable, compassionate and not in a rush. We've net her for the first time today, and I am highly impressed. She didn't leave one stone unturned, very thorough! Even rescheduled one of our related referral appointment herself.
We love Dr. Johnson. She is absolutely an amazing rheumatolgist. My daughter has been seeing her since she was 18 mths old and now she is 9. She is very knowledgeable and thorough. I have never feel rushed with any appointments with her. She always listens to our problems and provides solutions. She even gives us referrals when she feels it is out of her hands. She is amazing! She always asks if we have questions and never pushes us out the door. Our daughter loves her. She's gentle and has is so good with kids. She is straightforward and tells you as it is which I can see why some people may have a problem with. If you don't follow her instructions she does give you a lecture but that to me means she really cares about the welfare of your child. She genuinely seems to really enjoy her job! I can't ask for anyone better!
Worst rheumatologist we have come across in 10 years! She came on service a few days after our child was admitted to ACH during a flare-up that we couldn't get under control. She even went so far as to state if our child could just see a psychologist her pain would improve. Our child is an unusual case, and because she didn't fit into a simple box Dr. Johnson tried to convince us her flare up was psychological! Our child has been a patient of the rheumatology dept for over 10 years, very glad Dr. Johnson isn't our assigned rheumatologist. I can't say enough good things about ACH and the staff. Dr. Johnson was the first time we encountered being ignored by a physician. She wouldn't even respond when the nurses tried to find out what was going on. She told us one thing, then did another with our child's tests, including an MRI with no warning that caused extreme pain & mental trauma to our child.
Doesnt listen or wasnt helpful. My daughter was having symptoms, went for testing etc. She had abnormal blood tests come back and neurology had sent us to a rheumatologist. This was when I got the pleasure of meeting Johnson. My daughter tested high positive SSA/ro 60, borderline ANA and I didn't find this out until AFTER I request copies of her health records because I was getting no answers from anyone. Johnson had originally told me she will be keeping my daughter record open for 6 months so if I need to make an appt I can. I tried within a couple months (after I read my daughter health record) but she refused to see us again. So here we sit....my 14 yr old tested positive for Sjogrens but no one told me, file closed i feel like it's a ticking time bomb. I am doing my best to keep my daughter healthy without the help from useless drs who dont care
She is the most amazing doctor! I wish all doctors were like her! She is thorough with her examinations. She is always so personable with my daughter who she diagnosed since she was 18 mths old. She just gets down to her level and talks! My daughter loves going to her. She gives helpful advice and not afraid to refer you to someone else if she doesn't know the answer. She listens to the patient as well as the parent and is thoughtful of what advice to give. I just wish all doctors were like her. You can just tell she truly cares about every patient in her care. She was so respectful of my time when I was being rushed to another appointment and made sure she saw me on time and finished up on time. I wish every doctor was like her!
Dr. Johnson is AWESOME! My girls have been seeing her since 2007 for JRA (juvenile rheumatoid arthritis) and they just love her! She is very knowledgeable and thorough in her examinations and she takes time to answer all of our questions. She's great! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a pediatric rheumatologist.
