Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

I cannot thank Dr. Johnson enough. She helped me choose better shoes and orthotics, and arranged for PT, which has definitely helped. She showed me how to better lace my shoes and carefully explained why I had the issues I had. Dr. Johnson went above-and-beyond to make sure a planned trip went well and would be without walking problems. And it was!

Each visit, I had support staff for Dr. Johnson who were personable, efficient and good listeners.

I liked the kiosk check-in. Everyone seemed to be expecting me. Dr. Johnson spoke to me as if she were speaking to a friend or relative. I had a very good appointment.

Everyone on the staff is very nice and Dr. Johnson is a great doctor and very honest and friendly.

Everything was fine except the doctor herself. She was not friendly, didn't listen, was rude to me and her employees during my visit and did not help me at all. I will not be seeing her next time. I called the main clinic line and asked for a foot doctor that had great reviews but she wasn't available for two months so whoever I was speaking with on the general clinic line (not at this specific office) said Tanya had an appt the next week so I took it. I learned my lesson now that it is worth the two month wait for the Dr's with great reviews.

Dr. Johnson is awesome! I prefer to see her in Lorain v Avon Lake because the facility in Lorain is much nicer and less chaotic

Dr. Johnson is personable and professional! She's a keeper!

Reviewed on Oct 8, 2018

I waited almost an hour in the outer waiting room before being called back to the exam room. Then, everything went very quickly. The staff apologized many times about the delay, and when it was my turn with Dr. Johnson, she took a great deal of time with me which I appreciated. Dr. Johnson is definitely worth a waiting for.

this is the ONLY provider that gave me some medication that actually helped with the pain that I have been experiencing.

she is a very kind and good doctor. I am her new best patient. Liked her very much!!!

Reviewed on Sep 18, 2018

The last several visits I waited in the waiting room a good 45 min. before being called in. This last visit I waited a half hour before being called in. I suspect the office double books. I think another doctor needs to be added to the staff. I very much like Dr. Johnson, however, and think that she is an excellent doctor.

Dr Johnson and her staff was outstanding and very friendly.

the doctor was behind schedule by an hour which rushed me to other appointments and work throughout the day.

Reviewed on Jun 20, 2018

I waited for over an hour to see the podiatrist. No apology or explanation was offered. Then a female employee came into the exam room unannounced to tell the podiatrist another patient was waiting. So Dr. Johnson left before giving post-visit directions. My appointment was not a priority to the staff and my privacy was not respected.

Reviewed on May 23, 2018

Though there was a long wait in seeing the provider she explained why and apologized for the delay.
