Dr. James P Johnston 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.

They sent samples to a lab that was out of my network and ended up costing me $1,000. Very inconsiderate after I had initially pointed out the importance of keeping cost low due to my college loans.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
An outstanding physician.

I actually came from the big bustling metropolis known as the Washington DC metro area, to live in this bucolic small town environment that is Dresden, Ohio. I have a truly challenging, life altering, brutally painful condition that is completely disabling. And I've seen vast numbers of specialists and family doctors during my brief visit to planet Earth. Many of these docs have been good I think, some better than others, but none as good as this guy, Dr. Johnston. He is prompt, thorough, very down to earth but not entirely folksy either. It is clear that he knows his stuff and is not afraid to involve himself in a clinical conundrum if it can benefit this patient even slightly. His staff follow his example, and are some of the nicest people I have ever met, even outside the confines of a medical office. If you need a family doc, you can't go wrong with this one. Worth the trip if you live in Coshoctin, Zanesville or parts in between.
