Dr.Johnson trimmed a calas from my left foot and noticed an open wound and infection on my left leg and ordered a compressed bandage to be put on there every other day and ordered antibiotics for the infection and to come back on June 12. My PCP Nitin Govanni saw the same leg 4 days earlier and said it was healing when it was getting worse and I Thank God she caught his mistake as it kept getting worse.I am beginning to wonder how he got his license to become a physican along with some of your other doctors at CCF.

So I guess podiatrist don't want to care for feet and toes. This physician hardly spoke to me. She had no intention of doing any care for me until I said "please can you help me." She barely spoke to me about what I could do to care for the problem I presented with. I felt as if I wasted her time when in reality it was a waste of my time.
