Now open and accepting new patients!

What is a direct primary care pediatric office?

Our membership model allows you to receive the highest level of convenience and quality care for a monthly fee. This fee covers ALL visits (no copays), all routine office labs and 24/7 access to Dr. Johnson. Insurance will only be used for vaccine payments. Using a fee-based model rather than insurance allows Dr. Johnson to have a much smaller panel of patients. The smaller panel improves access for patients and maximizes attention to patient needs by Dr. Johnson. Insurance is still recommended for what it was designed for care outside the office such as emergencies, hospitalizations, and surgeries.

I don’t think I’ve ever written a review on a doctor until now! Dr. Johnson has been my son’s pediatrician for 11 years! when we first moved in Louisville, we had a hard time, finding one that was a fit. My son was very scared of doctors and needles etc.. A doctor friend of mine said that Dr Johnston was the best and would be perfect for my son and he was right! I’ve never had a pediatrician. That was so laser focused on the specific mean as a child all the way through his teenage years. He has been instrumental in guiding my son through more than just medical issues, but emotional support as well. He is invested, compassionate, extremely and I feel very blessed to have had him for my son’s doctor all the time! When he moved to direct pediatrics, I did not hesitate to move with him! My son and I trust and appreciate you Dr Johnston so much! This new location allows him to be even more flexible and allows even more time with each patient to give them the attention that he truly like to give!

Dr. Johnson M.D., Ph.D. (Duke University graduate) is an exceptional pediatrician who truly goes the extra mile. Whether it's reaching out to him after hours with a kiddo with a high fever, or a 4 year old who stuck beads up her nose (Yep! this really happened) we just run by his Norton Commons clinic and avoid the ER. So gratful we have our pediatrician treat our kids, instead of the ER. He knows their medical history and takes his time to care for them. His dedication is evident. Speaking of the clinic, it's not your average medical office – it's modern, welcoming and extremely clean! Forget about being stuck on hold-Dr. Johnson ensures prompt, quality care every time with same day appointments, every time!! The convenience of texting for medication refills is a game-changer, no calling DR office, just send him a text! Also, if you're having a new baby...Dr. Johnson makes house calls! That way, baby and mama do not have any germ exposure! It's this kind of thoughtful care that sets him apart. I cannot imagine going to a run of the mill pediatrician... Direct Pediatrics spoils you with top notch care!

Best pediatrician out there! We followed Dr. Johnson from his previous practice to this practice because he’s just that good. With his new direct and available care model, the stress of my kids getting sick or something popping up is no longer stressful - I know I can get in, he knows my kids well, and reaching him is a piece of cake! Very happy and recommend him to everyone!

Best pediatrician ever! Can not recommend Dr Johnson and Direct Pediatrics enough! He is so patient and understanding with my daughters. They open up to him and he always gets to the bottom of the issue. He is always available when we need him and willing to help, not only medical issues but counseling needs as well. Highly, highly recommend!
