In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.

Dr. Johnston is sweet, patient and thorough. She truly cares for my son and his well-being. I also love the fact that she is a CLC (certified lactation consultant) and takes the time to work on any feeding issues we have had since day one. Her staff is always helpful and courteous - even helping me to my car during my C-section recovery. I cannot speak highly enough about her and her team. I am so grateful to have her as my son's pediatrician!
My son is so blessed to have Dr. Johnston as a pediatrician. She is very compassionate not to just our child, but to us as a family. I breast feed and she is a huge supporter/encourager of that. She is very flexible in allowing us to bring our son in for wellness check-ups on Saturdays due to our work schedule. I admire her way to speak positive things over our son. For example, she said to our son, "I really believe you are going to be something great one day". Lastly, I like the way she exhaust all things to make sure she is on point with her medical diagnosis. Thanks Dr. Johnston!...You are a True God Sent.
