Specialties

Dr. William B Johnson has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Great pediatrician but HORRIBLE staff.

I have been taking my children to Dr. Johnson for 10+ years. He is a wonderful, wise, intelligent man who has always taken the time to put me and, most importantly, my kids at ease. But his receptionist is hands down, by far, the rudest person I have ever met. Like I stated, I've been going there a long time. Alot longer than before she even arrived. And as much as I trust Dr. Johnson and value his expertise because he has never been wrong with a diagnosis, I seriously can NOT deal with her anymore. I've never met such a miserable, hateful, vile person as her, and I get along with everybody. The wait times are also pretty long when you are in the office, but that's because Dr. Johnson gives so much time to each patient, so I can reconcile that drawback. But his staff, even his nurses now, have me raising the white flag. It's not worth it. I can find quality care somewhere else and not be treated like I'm a nuisance because you have to do your job and address me and check in my child when we arrive. Sad. Ridiculous, and sad.

Dr. Johnson is excellent with my girls he plays with them and gives them time to warm up to him and he is always accommodating. There maybe alittle of a wait but it's because he spends time answering all questions and making sure the parent is happy before he leaves the room. I love my daughters new doc I would recommend him to everyone!

Depends on the day

First let me say the staff is better now than they were a year ago. They must have read some of the complaints here. Overall he is a very nice, likeable person, and he is as good as most. But there are days when he just doesn't seem to be able to diagonis a problem, seems overwhelmed and forgets basic things like looking in nose, ears, mouth and listening to heart and lungs (which is especially weird when the complain in respiratory). Then when you return with the same complaint a few days later, he will order batteries of tests that show if he'd been a bit more aggressive to begin with medication wise my child would not have gotten worse. At any rate, he's probably an average pediatrician if you are a diligent parent. Make sure that he understands what your complaints are and that he addresses them with you and discusses which medications and the reasons for using them versus another.

Dr. Johnson is a good doctor but his office staff is TERRIBLE!!! Don't go to this office if you are looking for good customer service and people skills. His nurse acts like she really hates her job. Working with kids takes EXTRA sweetness and kindness which she is definitely lacking.
