"I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson at Gastro Arkansas. In fact I will be bringing my mother to him when she is due for her next colonoscopy. I had my first screening recently and I was extremely nervous about having a colonoscopy. During my consultation with Dr. Johnson, I repeatedly expressed that I had a lot of anxiety about it. He was very patient, kind, and reassuring. He took time to address my health history, all my concerns, and never did I feel rushed or ridiculous for being afraid. His entire staff including my nurses both named Sarah and the nurse anesthetist Kasha were all so warm, caring, and professional. I was in excellent hands from the moment I walked in the door until I walked out. The procedure went very well and I had no complications or issues whatsoever with the prep, the screening, or the recovery. I am very thankful to Dr. Johnson and his team and would not hesitate to recommend him to all my family and friends."

"I left Dr. Johnson's office feeling very pleased. His staff is cheerful and efficient. I hardly had to wait at all. Most importantly, Dr. Johnson's calmly efficient thoroughness in reviewing my medical history and assessing that no procedure will be necessary for another few years was a surprisingly upbeat conclusion. I wish more healthcare providers were as thorough and confidence-inspiring!"

"Dr Johnson actually listened to me. Means a lot in this day and age of “hurriedness” and “rush”. I believe that he will fix the problem I saw another doctor for earlier this year who told me only to “eat smaller bites and make sure to chew your food better”. When I’ve had the same problem before and told them what I needed and they didn’t listen to me. Thank you Dr Johnson!"

"My first visit with Dr Johnson was excellent, he sat down and started talking to me about my problem seemed so concerned in finding the answer to help solve my problem and what procedure to do next. He wasn't like most gasterroligist that I had been to before they always seemed like they were in a hurry to get through talking to me. Not him he sat down and talked to me throughly and right away he set up appointment the following week I did this one test and had 3 the next week and now I know I am getting some answers that is going to help me. I would recommend Dr Johnson to anyone out there I had some really serious problems but I feel very confident that I am getting the answers I need now. Finally found someone who would listen to me and take very quick action to help me i give Dr Johnson 5 Stars!!!"

"Dr. Johnson does not kid around - he looks at every possible symptom and will tests for all correlating diagnoses. He will ask you a lot of questions and go over every single med you put in your body and why- that is thoroughness! Yes he is busy, yes it can take some time to get into see him, but that’s because he knows what in the hell he’s doing. He will rule out all possible problems and order all specific tests related to your situation. I will not go anywhere else because at the end of the day I know I’m with the best. 👍🏻"

"I had an initial office visit with Dr. Johnson several weeks ago. I chose to be referred to him as my husband has seen, and has several procedures completed by Dr. Johnson for several years now. I am scheduled for a colonoscopy, endoscopy & abdominal unsound in mid-July. I will complete another review after my procedures are complete. Dr. Johnson was patient and answered all of my questions. There wasn’t much of a “physical exam” during my initial visit… as tests were scheduled for a later date. Visit took 10-15 minutes. It is my hope that following my procedures that Dr. Johnson May spend more time discussing, informing and answering questions regarding test results."

"I visited Gastroarkansas on a Friday because I had a medical concern. After only a very short wait I met Dr. Johnson, who went over my medical history and then gave me an appointment for the following Wednesday. His office called on Tuesday to insure that I understood the instructions I was to follow before the procedure and called again on Wednesday to invite me to come early because he was ahead of schedule and thought I might want to start earlier than my appointed time. I did and the procedure went well and I got home early. I was pleased with every moment of contact with Dr. Johnson and the Gastroarkansas clinic. Every employee was professional and friendly. They enforced the COVID-19 protocols completely, answered my questions patiently, and explained exactly how the procedure would be done. In short, the entire experience was made as comfortable as could have been done . I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to anyone. Bobby King"

"I did not want to have a colonoscopy but knew that I should just to be careful. The complete staff, and Dr. Johnson were wonderful in their care and the excellent service that they provided. They even called the next day to check on me. And instead of receiving a generic card in the mail with my results I received a phone call two days after my procedure. I can't say enough about the excellent experience that I received while there! Ajb"

"I first met Dr Johnson around April 2018. I had been a previous IV user and had contracted Hepatitis C. I had been to several doctors just trying to be treated because at 24 years old I found out not only did I have this terminal illness it had enough time to progress to the stage of border line cirrhotic and I stayed sick, exhausted, and helpless. From the first time he sat and just talked to me about everything he genuinely cared enough to go above and beyond for my treatment because insurance denied my treatment. I literally started losing hope but Everytime I saw Dr Johnson he lifted my spirits by assuring me we would get this treatment and I'd be cured no matter what it took. Here I am 25 years old on January 28th 2019 cured, happy, and healthy and for that, I will NEVER forget how a truly compassionate Dr and his staff saved my life! RN. Kristen Carroll and Dr. Bruce Johnson thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
