Erica is so sweet and reassuring with things that could seem scary or new like hormone medicines and shoes genuine concern for my opinion. Jer knowledge and how she presents it is understandable and abundant. I would reccomend her to anyone!


Dr. Johnston is the best doctor I've ever had. My health problems in this area are complicated, and frustrating, and she never stops looking for ways to help me. I can't imagine navigating my illness without her.


very good!


*Dr. Johnston-Macananny is the best GYN I've ever had. She's comforting, knowledgeable, & I trust her w/my care.


We will use Wake Forest care providers as much a possible in the future


Fantastic physician.


Very helpful! I was nervous about the consultation but she made me feel at ease and had a great personality and provided information and the directions were cut and dry and simple to follow.


*Dr. Johnston-Macananny took the time to explain all of our previous test results with us & really listened to our concern. She explained everything very well was empathetic and optimistic. I cannot say enough great things about our visit.


This is the first time I've felt like my doctor understood what I'm going through and was going to help.
