My Approach to Care

My interest in cardiology stemmed from an evaluation of an irregular rhythm I had before I could participate in high school sports in Alma, Nebraska. I always tell the patient that they are the “captain of the ship”, but I will give you recommendations and guidelines of what the next step is. You can get caught up in the technical aspect of cardiology, but it is the patient that matters most. This organization is the pinnacle of cardiology care.

I tell them exactly what I have related in this memo, without adding my concerns about the electronic survey.I tell them I would encourage your facilities to become more educated on the Veterans health issues. That could be a great beacon for those vets and of course for your facility.

Good experiencr
June 23, 2017
Dr. Johnson fixed the problem. He did not tell us I have 50% blockages on 2 other arteries -- the nurse was the one who told me. Dr. Johnson said they don't do anything with it until the blockage is 75%. I think they should have told me about the other blockages rather than hearing about it from the nurse.
June 21, 2017
Dr. Johnson is the best. His nurses are fantastic too.
June 21, 2017

Dr. Johnson is an outstanding cardiologist and dedicates himself to each individual and their needs. He will do whatever it takes and will take all the time needed to see that your needs are met.

I had bypass surgery two years ago. Dr. Johnson found my blockage. My left main coronary was 99% blocked. I lost my dad and younger brother this past fall from cardiac arrest. My two boys now go to Dr. Johnson along with my brother and a friend who I referred. The way things have gone I figure Dr. Johnson saved my life. My wife and I have complete trust in him.

Bryan East saved my life almost 3 years ago. I have so much respect for the medical staff and Drs. Dr. Oakes was my surgeon who saved my life and Dr. Mathew Johnson. Dr. Mathew Johnson takes his time with each visit with me and answers all my questions and gives me great feed back. No question is ever unanswered. He has always put me at ease with his honesty and knowledge of my medical condition. I truly trust him. Thank you Bryan Heart for all that you do in saving lives. Pat Fey
