Dr. Johnston has been my PCP since I moved to Tyler, he's always helpful and genuine when we talk about my health and medications. I like a doctor that doesn't beat around the bush, he gives it to you straight. If you're a smoker, he will address it. My last doctor just threw pills in my face and only cared about getting me in and out as quickly as possible. The world needs more Dr. Johnston's!

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.
Dr. Johnston is a very dedicated and caring physician! He is like a member of your family!
