Specialties

Dr. Stephen Johnson has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Pediatric Critical Care Medicine

    While pediatricians are typically the go-to resource when your child gets sick, more serious conditions require special care and closer monitoring. A pediatric critical care specialist works in a hospital setting to treat, diagnose and care for children with chronic conditions.
    They're trained to examine and treat children using unique methods and equipment in order to provide a more comfortable experience. A reaction due to asthma or diabetes, a serious injury from an accident, or on-going symptoms due to a serious disease are some reasons your child might end up in a pediatric intensive care unit.

Wrong Doctor

This is not the right doctor or at least the picture is not correct. This doctor does not work in Kaiser or LA and is not a pediatric ophthalmologist

Best care for my child

After reading the other review I was wondering if this could be the same doctor. Our child was critical when we were transfered to sunset. We had problems when transferred to the pediatric side but never any that were the Picu side. We did but heads with doctor Johnson a couple of times but he was honest and honestly listened to our concerns. No doctor is perfect and some patients don't fit some doctors but I believe he and his staff realize most of the patients there need specialized care and they provide it well. We practically lived in the Picu at times and are glad it was there. Residents can scary as they were on the pediatric side but we felt confident in the care under doctor Johnson.

My son was under his care at PICU at Sunset

I have been a KAISER member since 1993 and been thru few different PICUs with my son. Have to say Dr. Johnson made my decision to change KAISER a easy one. He is not responsive to parents questions nor he know how to talk to parents. He runs PICU like a military camp as I saw fear in Nurses eyes which I did not see at other KAISER PICUs. He should be left alone in a reserach facility. His discharge planner Janet Thoamas as equally horrible. Together they rule PICU and give KAISER a worst wrap. No wonder Kaiser Sunset PICU is sued the most. Get this doctor out to a lab please.
