Dr. Johnston is always current with research. I am amazed at all that she is able to stay on top of related to studies and recommendations. She is phenomenal at relating what is relevant, completely in terms I can relate to, not in medical-expert terms that make my eyes glaze over. She very patiently listens to my questions, which are few because she usually has anticipated what I need to know. But I have never, ever stumped her with my questions - she is so well informed. She works with me as a person, not just a patient. She is compassionate, empathetic, and listens to what is going on in my life, understanding all that stuff may potentially influence my health. I have 100% confidence in her and I have recommended her to others many times.

Dr. Eileen Johnston is a remarkable oncologist. She has been involved in my care since 2001. She is intimately familiar with the details of my medial history. Although the cause of my medical condition did not turn out to be oncology related, she was able to puzzle out a probable diagnosis and then confirm it. I know I am in exception;;y good hands when she is caring for me. Her entire staff is most caring. I feel I owe my life to her more than once.

Dr. Johnston consistently demonstrates her depth of knowledge and understanding of issues related to any question I throw at her. She listens, informs, and ensures I have what I need to make decisions. She also cares about me as a whole person, not just the disease for which she has treated me.

This was my initial meeting with the doctor. While I don't question her clinical abilities and expertise, it was her detached presentation of my post surgery results and treatment options that I had an issue with.

Dr Johnston was the second Oncologist that I met with after being diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Due to the warmth of her personality and her ability to clearly and concisely describe my necessary treatments, I made the decision to switch to her as my Oncologist.
