Care team with Meagan S. Lambert, MSN, FNP-BC.


Patients Say:

“Dr. Johnson is exceptional in how she treats me as a patient and is very thorough in her exams.”

“Of all my health providers, Dr. Johnson is far superior with professionalism, knowledge, kindness and care. She is reassuring and treats all of my questions as important. I never feel rushed or hurried. I trust her completely to treat and advise me. She’s wonderful!”

Dr. Johnson Says:

“As a rheumatologist, I have the opportunity to follow my patients throughout their life. It is so rewarding to reassure them through the tough times and celebrate with them in the great times! I love to hear about their kids, grandkids, spouses and friends, their interests and hobbies; I love really getting to know who they are as a person. I think knowing who they are and what they love really helps me to come up with the best treatment plan.

When I am not at work, I love chasing around my little boy and cheering on my Clemson Tigers!”
