SHC Patient, Apr 2015

My initial visit re: transplant very caring staff from top to bottom.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Johnston seems extremely knowledgeable, competent & concerned.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

It is always a good experience with Dr. Johnston - I feel she really has my back. She is the best.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Johnston is "on top" of the game being played - "doctoring."

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I wish all my doctors had such good rapport.

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

I think I am very lucky to have Dr. Johnston as my doctor. She represents Stanford well!

SHC Patient, Apr 2014

Everyone @ the Cancer Center has always been sensitive to the frightful journey we patients are going through. Dr. Johastoa is awesome! She is thorough, thoughtful and she explains issues in a simple/ non-medical way.
