*Dr. Johnston-MacAnanny is simply the best.


Wonderful care


My provider was amazing and helped me through something that was very scary for me. She is a high caliber doctor and person.


I have already recommending them to a few peolpe.


Great physician! Really explained things thourogly. My husband was impressed!


My husband and I were very pleased with our provider. I feel confident in her knowledge and skill set.


Loved *Dr. Johnston!


Provider used diagrams & visual aids in explanation of anatomy & procedure process; considered my input - much appreciated by me.


*Dr. Macananny is excellent. We felt v. comfortable being in her care.


I have seen quite a few physicians in my life and I have to say that this visit was the best I've experienced with regard to the care provided. Dr. Johnston and the other physicians took the time to answer all my questions without making me feel rushed. Infertility is a sensitive subject and is frustrating, but the care I received was outstanding. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Johnston and this office in general to anyone experiencing infertility. It took a few months for me to get in to see the physician, but it was well worth the wait.


I was relieved to have a doctor that finally understood my frustrations with the complications experienced with another doctor during my hysterectomy. This doctor was the 3rd doctor that I seeked help from in 5 months and I know I will now only have to see this doctor as she completely met my emotional and health concerns. I have never had a doctor to be so patient, attentive, and respectful as this physician.


She was very understanding regarding the reason that I was there, and talked to me instead of just reading a form about my history and care questions. I felt valued as a client.
