Lots of information
They were 100% caring Pros. Very good experience. We have complete confidence in Dr. Johnstone, and the folks at Froedtert.
Everyone was helpful and respectful. I appreciate everything they did for me... Thank you
1st time at Froedtert. Issues and treatment was discussed In depth, referral done same day. My husband and I (as medical people) were impressed.
There was an unusually long wait for an EKG after the visit with Dr. Johnstone.
Very through excellent job explaining everything.
I was very comfortable conversing with the PA who was doing the Initial Interview. She was very professional. Dr. Johnstone is obviously very competent in his chosen medical field. He explained In considerable detail what would happen In the hospital and what I could expect after I went home. I left feeling very good about this visit.
I cannot believe how friendly all the staff in the Cancer Center is! Yet, they are also very efficient and professional. I was especially impressed with Dr Johnstone and his staff!
It was far more informative than expected. Dr.Johnston put my mind at ease about the operations to the point of deep concideration.
