My experience with Dr Johlin has been very good. He's a brilliant doctor. His bedside manner isn't awesome but I wasn't looking for a bestfriend but rather a diagnosis and treatment. Johlin spent 1.5 hours with me at our initial consultation. I believe this was longer than average but we made a breakthrough 45 minutes into the visit and he spent the time required. If you want a genius doctor then you should see him.
I'd highly recommend Dr. Johlin to anyone having gastrointestinal problems. It took him one day to figure out I had a liver disease...this was missed by Mayo Clinic and every specialist back home...over six years and I was told it was mental illness. I was so sick I told my dad to have me committed. Dr. Johlin changed all that...he asked me to give him 24 hours...I trusted him....and he found it. To say he changed my life is an understatement. The doctor is genius...yes, he sometimes seems to focus on research....I guess that's why my case was written up in the Journal of the American Medical Association...I also remember the evening he sat down in my hospital room and watched "Cheers" for a few moments...he DOES care about his patients and their well-being. He is super-intelligent...he has many people to care for...he was also with me after my dad was diagnosed with the recurence of cancer...came to find me and speak to me personally....another mistake by home-town doctors....something that could have been known by a simple blood test...should have been followed....his mind is on medicine...and how it affects lives....he cares....
My personal experience with Dr. Johlin. He strongly believes that he is "All Knowing & All Seeing", also known as a "God Complex". This doctor is not willing to admit that his knowledge may be exhausted when it comes to treatment and diagnosis of a patient's disease or disorder, especially if the disease or disorder is complicated or compounded. Very poor bedside manner, inability to relate or connect with patient on a "human" level. Notates rude, inappropriate, unrelated and emotionally damaging comments that you won't be able to forget. I know I'm not the only patient that has this experience with Dr. Fred Johlin.
