Dr. David B Johnson has the following 1 specialty
- Family Medicine
A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Dr. Johnson missed vital signs regarding what my mother was dealing with. His nurse practitioner was treating my mother somehow for a foul smell in her private region. Apparently there was never a urine screening done, and so a UTI continued to the point that her kidney functions were suffering. Even with lowered kidney functions, and hallucinations, decreased mental functioning, confusion, etc. in an older patient, Dr. Johnson still did not have my mom pee in a cup for what is one of the simplest diagnostic tools a doctor has at their disposal. It's hard telling how long this went on even though she was seeing the doc regularly, and culminated in an ER visit for the mental health symptoms of a UTI followed by a hospitalization because IV antibiotics were needed it had gotten so bad. If her own doctor and/or his Nurse Practitioner had simply done their jobs, and performed what should be a standard diagnostic test months ago, this all could have been avoided. That combined with what in my opinion is a terrible bed side manor have contributed to my low rating. The office itself is pretty good. Prompt attention, easy to get in, etc.
