Dr. Johnson is an excellent Doctor and look forward to continued care. i have not a bad word to say.

Feb 11th, 2015

Have been waiting for over a month to have prescription called in. Every time I call office, you have to wait about 30 minutes to get anyone to pick up the phone. They say that they'll take care of it, but you have to hound them. Staff is the rudest, and can't be bothered with you except to take your money. Can never get an appointment when sick. Am referred to go to the walk in clinic.

Dr. Johnson thinks he is a specialist and can handle any problem or disease. He won't make appropriate referrels when needed. Very full of himself and thinks he is something more than a PCP in little Venice, Florida. BTW, he sold out his practice so he is now an employee of the same company that owns Venice Hosptial. Office staff is abrasive. Nearly impossible to get results of testing. Call to check on tests and his office gives you a phone tree and says to leave a message and they will call you back in 48 hours!!! You can find better elseware.

I have had the pleasure of being Dr. Johnson's patient for over a decade. I do not give my opinion often but in this case I must share how Dr. Johnson has helped my family. If it were not for Doctor Johnson my father would not be with us still. Dr. Johnson was the only doctor who could identify my mother's illness after we almost gave up hope. My children have grown up with Doctor Johnson, and his staff, and I can rest assured the kids are in excellent hands. If you read this Keith - "a heartfelt thanks Doc". PS Nice Photo.

Dr johnson is an arrogant condescending so-called physician. His bed side manner is pathetic and needs A LOT of work, maybe going back to school might help. He "thinks" he is a specialist and practices outside the scope of his practice. Don't be fooled by this man, stay away! He is someone that is very incompetent.

Medical records are maintained the same as back in the days of Abe Lincoln maybe even George Washington on paper, in folders. Searching through stacks of paper is time-consuming, inefficient and prone to errors. Patient billing isnt in paper files and neither should be medical files. Its been said that the two minimum requirements currently of doctors is that they be board certified and utilize computerized medical records.

He saved my sons life show details He saved my sons life

I have been to many docotrs over the years and Dr. Johnson really is one of the people who care. While some people may complain about "expensive tests" that he may order, these tests are for him to properly diagnose a problem. My son who had been seen by a differnt doctor since birth had been complaining for months about headaches. After several trips to the other doctor we were continually told that it was a virus. The problem was that the other doctor was so concerned about running "unessessary tests" that he ran none!!!! On the third visit I finally demanded at CT scan of my sons head to at least make sure there wasn't a serious problem. That evening I got a phone call from a very audibly upset doctor stating that my son did in fact have a very bad problem. The CT scan showed a massive tumor. Even after seeing the basebal size tumor (compressing the ventricles in his head) he still only "referred" us to All Childrens for an appointment 5 days later. I went to Dr. Johnson for a second opionon just 14 hours after hearing the awful news. Dr. Johnson took his own time to review the scans before my visit and had already got the ball in motion to save my son. He told me of the urgency to get my son into immediate care and within hours my son was admitted to All Childrens and was recieving the proper medicines to prevent him from having seizures. Two days after admitance he was operated on and was dianosed with a very rare and malignant brain tumor.I shudder to think what may have happened if Dr. Johnson did not act as swiftly as he did. Although this was his first time meeing us, he acted like a friend or extended family member. I owe him everything. He save my sons life. Thank you Dr. JohnsonSincerly, Karla Small Venice, Fl
