Krister Johansson is awesome, and frankly, he's the only reason I keep going to Swedish Covenant because your system is a little wack - but he's such a good doctor, I keep going.

May 13, 2020

Dr. Johansson is a great physician. He has a great bed side manner and he will call the shots as they are. He doesn't (INAUDIBLE) any word. I have been having nothing, but good about his practice as as a doctor. It's just mainly his office staff that I have issues with I am very proud to recommend him, but I let everybody know that it's really challenging to deal with getting prescriptions and testing and things like that because of the staffing issues.

Jun 9, 2020

Dr. Johansson has what it takes to be a doctor that's lacking in so many other physicians. He's real personable and he listens carefully to everything you have to say, you know, I just have many good things to say about him.

Dr. J is the best.

Jan 15, 2020

We have known Dr. Johansson for almost twenty years, he has been taking care of all three of our children since they were days old. We don't trust anyone like we trust Dr. Johansson. Every time I see other providers at Swedish and tell them he is our PCP, they sing his praises too. I am a social worker at a hospital; I realize how very blessed we are to have a doctor who is so dedicated to providing excellent, personal, compassionate care to all of his patients. No one hustles like Dr. Johansson; he knows all of his patients personally and is always genuinely happy to see them. During scary times when our children are sick, he is reassuring and confident and attentive. He takes excellent care of all of us. We would follow him anywhere.

Feb 3, 2020

the doctor is great, he understands everything that's going on, he listens, and he has great answered and he will come back and check to make sure how it's going over period of time, is the best doctor I've ever been to.

Dr. Krister Johansson has be my PCP for nearly 20 years. I hope he will stay in practice for another 20! Dr. Denis Williams is the orthopedic surgeon who is doing his best to help my shoulder heal. He is kind, thoughtful and presents all the options before moving forward. Above all, the staff and nurses at both SCMG locations are friendly, efficient and professional. They seem genuinely grateful to work at Swedish, and have a patient-first attitude that is greatly appreciated.

Jan 30, 2020

Yes, this doctor is very good. He answers all my questions. He's very concerned about my health. He's very friendly. He asked if there's anything going on with your family, are you taking your medicine? Losing weight? Stop smoking. He's just excellent. I don't have no complaints with him. When I call and leave a message, he responds back to me. So I'm quite happy with Dr. Johansson. He's a very excellent medical provider. And that's it. He always has a smile on his face. He greets you properly and sits down and talks with you.
