Dr. Robert A Johnson has the following 4 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

The wait time is ALWAYS hours! It is generally like being in a carefully controlled stampede! Trying to actually deal with a billing issue or even follow up for a medical issue is nearly impossible! I am still looking at a bill for an appointment I never had, with a doctor I do NOT know after waiting 26 min on hold with the billing dept. Their primary interest is getting money from as many people as they can possibly herd through the clinic!
I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson for the last year. Being a 28 year old mother of twins is stressful enough but having to go see a cancer doctor just adds to the stress. But Dr. Johnson has always made me feel very relaxed even when facing a rare diagnosis. He always makes sure that I know exactly what is going on and is able to explain it to someone who has no medical knowledge. He is very caring and always makes sure that all aspects of my health are in check. I would definitely recommend him as a doctor.
