Patient reviews for Dr Andrew Johnson



Just Brilliant!
"The care given via my GP was not working; after two years my sugars remained high. I felt unsupported with little hope things could change, so chose to find a private specialist to help.

I found Andrew via BUPA’s specialist list, but paid myself. I took time to read his self descriptor, which seemed a good fit. From my first call it was clear Andrew listens and hears what I am saying. He advises in a direct, professional manner with dry humour, and supports me to improve my own health. He is happy to negotiate, can be blunt, but is also caring and kindly, and has gone the extra mile to support me via Zoom, email and phone calls during lockdown, and especially when I hit an initial rocky patch. Most importantly, he is very skilled and up to date in his thinking about diabetes. He encourages change. I am so glad to have found him and cannot recommend him highly enough.

Excellent.
"Dr.Andrew Johnson gets it. From his excellent treatment, curiosity, investigative mind, and ability to connect, you know where you stand immediately and what the next steps look like. Attention doctors if you want a masterclass in watching a doctor bring medical knowledge and build rapport so that message is heard by patient and therefore delivered watch this guy."

Diabetes Type 1
"I had been having some struggles with diabetes for the last 18 months, having had type 1 for 40 years.
I was starting to feel anxious and depressed from not being able to sort this out via the NHS so, I booked a consultation with Dr Johnson. My first appointment was amazing - I instantly felt so understood, heard, and supported, in a way no doctor has before. Not only that, but he has also been educating me,  and giving me a completely new treatment programme, some new tools for my kit, which are completely liberating me, improving my control hugely and at the same time making my life so much easier. He is professional, supportive, caring.
He has also gone above and beyond to support me while making these changes in my treatment, with regular phone support as needed. I would highly recommend  treatment with Dr Johnson -  I wish had found him years ago!

TYpe 2 diabetes
"I had a consultation with Dr. Johnson recently in connection with a diagnosis I had just received . He was a most pleasant person and as soon as I met him, I was at ease. He fully explained my situation in easy terms . By the end of the consultation, I had full confidence in him and left feeling much easier with myself."

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
"I was delighted to have found Dr Johnson who listened caringly to my thyroid problem. I hadn't felt well since its onset some 5 years ago and in my heart, knew that I should feel better than I do. In spite of seeing a couple of other Endocrinologists, I still didn't feel good and hadn't been offered an alternative treatment although I knew there were other options. Dr Johnson prescribed Armour, which I am about to start taking - I am filled with positivity for a better and more normal life!! I would highly recommend an appointment with this sympathetic and very knowledgeable doctor. Don't ever give up, if you don't feel well, keep fighting and follow your heart until you find the answer. Thyroiditis can be totally debilitating."

"Can highly recommend. Felt extremely unwell on Levothyroxine for years. Saw many top endocrinologists with no improvement or interest in offering me anything other than the medication i was on which didnt allieviate my awful hypo symptoms. Dr Johnson listened, changed my prescription and feel much better!"

Autoimmune thyroiditis
"I started seeing Andrew in August 2015 after a 4year battle with raised TPO anitbody tests and raised TSH and a poor response to levothyroxine. Andrew recommended a trial of armour and I've never looked back. Andre and his wife Sally are both lovely and go above and beyond the role of a consultant, ringing in the evening to check how I am and to discuss medication. Highly recommended."
