"Katherine and her staff are the best. Always responsive and friendly. Katherine really listens to your concerns and treats the individual and not an "out of the box" treatment that is the same for everyone. She is always on time. Takes the time to have the conversation WITH you and doesn't talk AT you. I was referred to her by friends, and I continue to recommend her to others."- A.B. / Google / Nov 29, 2021

"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
"I found Katherine Johnson when I posted in a FB group for Moms because I knew I needed Help but had NO idea where to start. As women age we experience so many changes and Katherine is the Nancy Drew of getting to the root cause! She’s so passionate about helping others and it shows! I’m so grateful for her and her team! And I’m all about supporting local business! Thanks for everything!"- N.H. / Google / Jul 23, 2021
Sexual Health Diagnostics and Management
To screen for reproductive issues and help patients manage their sexual health, we may recommend preventive services, such as:
- Pregnancy testing
- Birth control management
- Pap smears
- STD testing (including HIV testing)
During your visit, we will talk with you about any symptoms you are experiencing, your medical and sexual history, and how these issues may be affecting other areas of your life. Katherine and our team will utilize this information to help identify viable treatment options, if necessary, and assist you in making optimal decisions for your general health and well-being.
Sexual health FAQs
How often should I get a Pap smear?
Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been known to cause cervical cancer. Pap smears are a safe and effective way to catch precancerous changes in a woman’s cervix. It's advisable for all women over 21 to have a Pap smear every three years unless they have been told otherwise by their doctor. Johnson Family Medical can provide further testing and information if there are any abnormal findings.
When should I schedule a mammogram?
A mammogram can be scheduled at any time, but it's most often recommended in women over the age of 40. If there is a family history of breast cancer, you notice lumps in your breasts, or there is discharge from your nipples, you should call to have one immediately. Mammograms are fairly simple procedures, but they should be scheduled every year or two years, depending on your age.
What are the most common symptoms of STDs?
The most common symptoms of STDs are unexplained discharge, sores or bumps, and pain when urinating. If not treated, STDs can cause long-term health issues. This brief list of possible side effects is by no means a complete listing, so if you have concerns about your sexual health, please speak with our healthcare advisors about discrete STD testing.
