*Dr. Johnston-Macananny is simply the best. She truly listened to us & our concerns as a couple - not as individuals her holistic approach made all the difference for us.


*Dr. Johnston Macananny was extremely personable - made me feel comfortable.


I've recommended *Dr. Johnston to many people.


It is not possible to have a higher opinion of *Dr. Johnston than I already do. She is fantastic!


I can't say enough great things about *Dr. Johnston. She is exceptional.


Dr. Johnston-MacAnanny is awesome! She truly cares about her patients and wants them to have the best outcome. She takes as much time as needed, to explain things and answer any questions. It is very hard to be happy when you are being treated for infertility issues at REI, but she makes the appointments much better. My husband and I love her.


Mrs. Johnston was exceptional. I speak another language and she took the time to learn how to greet someone in my language, on my last visit she came in and said Zdravo with such enthusiasm which meant a lot to me that she tried. She is what all providers should strive to be. Lucky to have been able to see her.


*Dr. Johnston-Macanannay is the BEST physician I have ever seen! She is so personable, caring & compassionate!


This was my first visit. I have never met the physician before today. I was comforted about my providers concern and proactive treatment plan. I felt the provider listened to me and made sure she understood my history since she didn't have any records from other providers with her at the time.


Excellent provider (*Johnston-Macananny) - wish she was closer. She cares, is invested in my care, and has alternative solutions others have not tried.


I did recommend *Dr. Johnston-Macananny to a friend. She loved her & now with the treatment from dr. she is pregnant!


I have never been SO impressed with a doctor and I work in healthcare for 25+ years. She recalls my entire journey @ each visit. If only I found her first my current health concerns would be much more positive outcomes.


Best dr. ever.


We love Dr. Johnston! She is always engaged in our conversations and actively attempts to find solutions to our problems when it comes to infertility. She always makes me and my husband feel as if we are her only patients for the day and that we are important to her. We couldn't have found a better Reproductive Endocrinologist to help us expand our family!


Happy that she recommend to me finally gave me answer that was needed steering me into right course for action.


Hands down the absolute best provider I have ever seen!
