New hours for May (Dr. J is on vacation/CME)

I have been on call for my patients 24/7 since December 2017!

I need a vacation! Also, I'm going to pick up some much needed CME.

In the evenings, I will continue to be available by phone call for urgent problems. (Please text me, not Kaitlyn, for urgent issues outside of her office hours.)

Kaitlyn Barnett, our amazing Nurse Practitioner, is kindly working an extra day a week for May (Tuesdays), and the schedule has been thus modified.

She is celebrating the first year in our practice! (Happy 1 Year Practice Anniversary Kaitlyn!)

Some of you have scheduled appointments for me in May. Those appointments will have to be cancelled. I will cancel them. Please go to the website, and schedule an appointment with Kaitlyn. If you have needs that can wait until June, she would appreciate that. I will increase my hours the first week of June to make sure all needs are met and we are caught up on all consults, mail-in prescriptions, record requests, and appointments.

You may be more likely to go to the Urgent Care in May for urgent problems, as Kaitlyn is going to be very busy and I will not be available during the day. Let it be a reminder of what every other family practice and pediatric practice does after hours: send their patients to the E.R. or Urgent Care. We only do it for the month of May: every other month, I will meet your needs as best as I can after hours. I put stitches in two kids this month, one around 7 p.m. and one at 9 p.m., saving their family $1,000 or more dollars!

To read my UPDATED article "The Lack of Informed Consent in Modern Medicine", please click here:

Many of our patients come to us because they are reluctant to get all the vaccines, and are tired of being kicked out of pediatricians' offices for not getting all the shots, or being berated for their choices. With the lack of informed consent when it comes to vaccinations, believe me, it's worse than you realize.

To aspiring patients: give us a chance.

To our patients: thank you for your loyalty.

James P. Johnston, D.O.
