Dr. Johnston explained the ear wax procedure to me thoroughly. He offered solutions to maintaining my ear wax so the plugging issue doesn't recur. He was pleasant and very informative.

If I could give dr Johnson an "excellent exceeds expectations" every time I've seen him I would. He is an amazing doctor, so very caring, very friendly and listens until all my questions have been answered. My only regret is that he's an ENT and I can't have him as my regular provider only ENT issues. He is a a gem and definitely an asset to Vanderbilt. I have seen several doctors at Vanderbilt and he is at the top of my list of the best.
