Family Physician Doug Johnston believes in the power of relationships. “I think of medicine as a partnership. It’s my job to give good, sound medical advice, and it’s up to the patient whether or not they want to take it. We work together to do what’s best for them.”
Board eligible in Family Practice, Dr. Johnston is a dedicated family man with five children of his own. When it comes to taking care of other families, he has inside information. “I feel like I can actually give some practical advice to my patients, not that I have all the answers, but a lot of the things that parents have issues with, my wife and I are going through them, too.”
