"I love love Dr Johnson. She is amazing and makes you feel at ease. I want to make that clear! The reason that I did not give a 5 star is because of a certain staff member. When I was trying to explain my reasoning of not being able to come do a follow up....was told on the phone prior to first visit that they did take carecredit and gave a totally different copay amount, she got defensive saying how it's only 3 people blah blah blah and they don't take it. Ok. I get that. But if you let me talk and finish instead of getting defensive and interrupting. Yes, maybe the person misunderstood?? Idk, but it happened. You can say it never did but it won't change the fact that yes it did. I even showed them the number at the time of visit, which was theirs that I called hrs prior to confirm copay price when the receptionist tried to say I called a different office. I didn't make it up. But don't get ugly cause you think no one could have made a mistake on your end. Maybe she thought I said something else. Idk. Either way, I'm not mad about it. I wasn't even getting nasty on the phone. I just was telling what happened. Nothing more. So don't try to talk over me on the phone cause you don't agree and want to basically say I'm lying. I just chose this place because I heard great things about Dr Johnson, which is all true and thinking they did take it which unfortunately for me, they dont. But even the copay amount that I was told originally, ended up being twice as much as well."- A.S. / Google / Aug 05, 2021

How Is Diabetes Treated and Managed?
Several factors are known to increase the risk of diabetes, including obesity, genetics, poor diet, and high blood pressure, among others. While some of the most common signs or symptoms are excessive thirst, frequent urination, blurry vision, and hyperglycemia (high blood sugar), some patients may have no indication of diabetes, making routine screenings very important. Katherine recommends diabetes treatment according to individual needs, which might include controlling blood glucose levels through diet, weight loss programs, prescription medications, or insulin injections.
