Samantha Johnston took great care with our son during his office visit. she answered all of our questions and concerns very intelligently and showed genuine interest in caring for our sons wide range of needs. she is awesome!
We LOVE Samahntha!! she is amazing, she is always caring, always remembers each of my children and their health. So kind and always communicates with them as much as me.
Samantha is fantastic. She makes us feel very welcome and informed about my Childs care. Both of my kids love her and how attentive she is to them. She always answers our questions and concerns with great detail and with complete understanding.
WE really like samantha, She makes us feel like we are welcome and never rushed. She answers all our questions and is intelligent and caring.
We were pleased with the care Samantha provided.
We are always pleased with Samantha.
We love all the staff for our girls. Always so helpful and listens to our concerns and answers questions promptly.
very good care
We loved Samantha! She is perfect for teen girls!
She is amazing, and I would give her an even higher rating. I want to see her, only, when I need to make an appointment, as she truly cares for each patient and finds ways to connect personally. She listens, responds with thoughtfulness and kindness, and relates to me as a person, not just as a "case" to check off the list. I feel disappointed that I will be too old for her to handle my care within 2 years' time!
Samantha is very personable and relatable, while still be professional and knowledgeable. My children really like her, and so do I!
My 4 children love Dr Samantha - she is always so compassionate to their needs and makes them feel so special.
My Son was given good care by Sam.
Samantha is amazing! We always request to see her whenever one of my girls needs to have a doctor visit. I feel she she genuinely cares about her patients.
I appreciate Samantha's politeness and willingness to explain information, such as; what is looked at with the shaping of newborns head, his growth in general and any questions I may have. My wait was a little longer but there was a family new to the office in front of me which also contributed to our wait. It was not a problem for us. When Samantha was in the room with us, I felt listened to and not rushed.
Samantha is the best. She is knowledgeable and respectful. She treats her patients with care and concern. She takes time to listen to concerns and offers input. We love all of the staff in the office but request Samantha due to her demeanor with our child.
samantha was very kind and caring about my child not feeling well. I was connected to the answering service when I called and actually had the call returned by the office staff and was able to bring my child in that same evening. Although we still dont know what made our infant not feel well it was comforting to know it was nothing serious and to just let it run its coarse.
Samantha was absolutely fantastic! we had a scheduled appointment on 5/29/2018 that the office staff never put in the system and they made us reschedule (which I feel personally they should have seen us that day and found a way to fit us in considering it was there mistake for not putting her appointment in the system, we even had the card that showed we had a appointment that day). after that experience, and a few others, we consider looking into new pediatricians. however after meeting with Samantha and seeing how much our daughter connected with her, how well she explained everything and how patience she was with all our questions we decided to stay with this office as long as she's the provider we see going forward.
All of the providers my family have dealt with at this office have been very good to us.
Samantha did an amazing job. she made my son completely happy when he wasn't feeling well. she answered all our questions...i really like her.
I always recommend this office to people. The providers and staff are excellent!
we absolutely love this office and all the drs. Dr Sam (Johnson) is one of our absolute favorite providers. so sweet, caring, informative, and thorough.
Samantha was very knowledgeable and thorough with my daughter. My daughter has high levels of anxiety and Samantha made her feel very comfortable. I feel Samantha took our complaints seriously. I feel she did the best job she could have done. Absolutely professional and communicated at an appropriate level for my daughter to understand.
very helpful and caring seems genuinely concerned about the wel being of my child Samantha is amazing
very good, but waited 1hr 1/2 for whole appt with a 6 month old
I love samantha! she is who I would prefer my daughter to see!
