My goal is to provide each patient with a clear understanding of his/her illness and treatment choices available, arriving at the best possible decisions for each person. Clear communication with patients, families, and medical professionals is essential for good care and establishing trust.



Dr. Johnstone comes to Milwaukee from Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and the Norris Cotton Cancer Center, where he was Director of the Comprehensive Thoracic Oncology Program and Chief of the Division of Thoracic Surgery.  He brings with him 20 years of experience in thoracic oncology, most notably, in the multidisciplinary management of lung cancer.
