Dr Johnston is a class act. We’ve been going to him for over 17 years. Always listens to you first and has always been spot on for diagnosis and treatment. Hands down, best Family Doctor around.

   — Rudy Plaza


He is very thorough and caring. He listens well and explains till you understand. He cures the problem instead of doling out medications for the symptoms and he refers to specialists for complex problems. I am healthier because of his care.
