I never leave reviews for Dr offices, and as someone with autoimmune diseases I see a lot of Drs and am usually disappointed with most. But I just had to find Dr. Angela Johnson on Facebook and leave her a 5-star review.
I did not expect much to be honest, but I have been blown away by the kindness and care of the staff and by how thorough and compassionate Dr. Johnson is. They explained the costs clearly up front ($10 for exam and $35 for the contact exam) and Dr. Johnson spent four times as long with me as the optometrist did at Visionworks. Maybe that is how she discovered that I had optical nerve swelling being caused by intracranial pressure. She immediately referred me to a specialists, where I am going in for testing to see why I have this increased pressure in my head, which could be serious if left untreated.
The fact that the other optometrist did not find nor mention this at seems pretty par for the course in my experience. It should not be rare to find a doctor who actually cares about her patients and takes the time to be thorough and compassionate… but it is. I am so thankful to have found Dr. Johnson, and that she found this problem before it could have become dangerous.
She has called me twice to follow up already and to talk about my specialist referral, and her follow through care is outstanding. I want to thank her and her staff for their outstanding work and renewing my faith in the medical profession.
I am a client for life.
