Dr. Johnston is the absolute best. I have been going to him for over 10 years now. He is so thorough and detailed. He takes the time to build relationships with his patients. He listens. He is just an all around great guy. Thankful for my family doctor!

As always, my mother and I found Dr. Johnston to be willing to listen and respond to our questions and concerns. He was sensitive and concerned and explained all options. He went out of his way to make my mom feel comfortable about what she was experiencing. He clearly cares about what is going on with YOU!

Douglas F. Johnston, D.O. has been my doctor for nearly eleven years. He is extremely knowledgeable about all things medical. He explains things in a very detailed manner. He is one of the best physicians I have ever had. He is kind, considerate and truly very professional. I hope to continue to be his patient for a long time to come.

I have seen Dr. Johnston for several years now and find him quite easy to talk to. He doesn't talk over my head, very knowledgeable and up to date on latest medical concerns. His staff is professional and friendly. Highly recommend him for family practice.
