PASSIONATE ABOUT PATIENT CARE
“Every day for more than 20 years I have been excited about seeing my patients. My favorite part of the exam is when I have the opportunity to talk with the patient about what is going on with their eyes. Teaching you about your eyes allows you to take part in your health care and allows us to work together to meet your visual needs. I can’t tell you how many patients have said ‘this is the first time that has ever been explained to me, it makes sense now.’ I could not imagine caring for my patients without explaining what is going on and how we can fix it.”
Dr. Johnson grew up in Craig, Colorado before attending Boise State University. Dr. Johnson continued his education at Pacific University, College of Optometry where he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree.
