It really does take a village!!
Not only to raise children, but to raise a business as well.
Dr. John J. Johnson has practiced in the LC Valley since 1997, weathered many personal and professional storms, and still managed to persevere. Though he would like to take the credit for all of his successes, he is mindful that this wouldn't be the most accurate position to take. On the contrary. "I have been blessed to surround myself with friends and business associates far too many to count," he says. "No one can truly claim that they are self-made...we are all products of our environment, after all."
In this light, Dr. Johnson would like to acknowledge those who have contributed to his personal and professional success since opening his office:
Personal & Business Banking
Twin River National Bank - Nikki Rogers (208) 746-4848
"Nikki...one of the sweetest, hardest working, most honest, & community minded people I've ever known. It is an absolute privilege to know her and to endorse her as our choice for professional & personal banking."
Zions Bank - Mel Frei
Wells Fargo Bank - Angela Brooks
Real Estate Agents
Judy Higgins Team - (208) 750-JUDY
"I've known Judy since moving to the LC Valley in December of 1996!! What an amazing woman...amazing work ethic...amazing drive. No doubt that if you need Judy, it will always be done right...amazingly."
Sarah Everett - Assist to Sell Agent
"I've known Sarah for a very long time, and had the honor of working with her in my office for several years. If you want laser beam focus from a bright, fun, self driven, motivated, and successful businesswoman, give her a buzz."
Accounting & Legal Services
Presnell Gage - (208) 746-8281
What a blessing to have found Presnell Gage after moving to the Valley in '96. They provide me with nothing but comfort in knowing that the business side of my office is being handled with a great deal of integrity and thoughtful planning. For you small business owners, you know that payroll responsibilities, taxes, reports, and all that other "stuff," with their deadlines and subtleties can drive you nuts. Having an accounting TEAM, like the one at Presnell Gage, handle all that "stuff" provides nothing but peace of mind.
Clark & Feeney Attorneys
For those in need of legal counsel, I can honestly tell you that in the occassional circumstances where I was in need of legal counsel and advice, the attorneys and Clark & Feeney provided me with nothing but the best.
Northwestern Mutual Life - Sam Canner
"I met Paul Hanson in 1995, in Moscow, when I was first out of dental school and he was just getting his feet wet in the insurance business. Even though he was just learning the ropes, I found a sincerity in Paul that is rare...still true today, after twenty years. So, it was with a great deal of disappointment (mine) that Paul moved up the ladder at NML, and my account was reassigned to Sam Canner, right here in Lewiston. To be honest, I just didn't think that lightning could ever stike twice in the same place, and that I'd struggle with my new guy. Lightning did, in fact, strike twice, and the transition from Paul to Sam has been seamless...in fact it is better. In addition to handling all of my life and disability insuracne needs, Sam has also helped streamline and organize our office's Simple IRA Accounts, as we all start wondering what life will be like when we eventaully retire. With his Administrative Assistant, Charlene, keeping him on task, I feel more taken care of financially than I ever have. Thanks Paul. Thanks Sam. And, Thank You, Char. You are all the best!!"
Home Improvement & Construction Supply
Flerchinger Electric - (509) 751-9015
"I met Ron Flerchinger in 1997, when I first opened my office. He and his electricians provided all of our electrical needs at that time, and also were contracted to complete the electrical responsibilities when we remodeled in 2004. They have proven themselves to be incredibly flexible and reliable when minor emergencies have arisen...hot water tank goes out at home, etc. It has also been a privilege to get to know Ron's family, an amazing group that includes his wonderful wife and equally impressive daughters, and granddaughter. I'll continue to use Flerchinger Electric and recommend them to others for as long as I stay in the Valley."
Miller Brother's Plumbing & Heating - (208) 743-1575
Computer Hardware & Software Support
B & I Computer Systems - Jay Thomson (208) 746-5980
When our office was in dire need of a computer upgrade, I solicited the advice of several colleagues in the dental profession, and heard the same name repeated over and over again, "Jay Thomson." As a result, I decided to give his business a try. WOW!! Not only did Jay take my project on personally, but he walked me through the entire process from start to finish. Being a 'non-techie,' it would have been incredibly easy to take advantage of me, and that was something I was scared to death of. Jay is so honest and straight forward with everything, that nothing but trust emerged from our relationship. He provided the best system for our current and future needs, and did it under the most bizarre time frame and constraints than I could have ever imagined. Jay and his team are the best in the Valley...a FIVE STAR Business!!"
Health & Wellness Providers
St. Joseph's Hospital - (208) 743-2511
Clearwater Medical Clinic - Dr. Celso Chavez (208) 743-8416
"I get choked up whenever I talk about Dr. Chavez, for not only is he my family physician, but I view him as a hero as well. As my grandfather's physician for years, Dr. Chavez made arrangements during the final two months of my grand dad's life, so that he could stay comfortably at home, in his own bed, surrounded by his family. I am convinced that many doctors would have opted to send my grandpa to the hospital for care, but Dr. Chavez did not. He stopped by the house two times, and made hospice arrangements so that everything was as comfortable as possible for my grandparents. The experience ranks as one of the most pleasurable of my entire life...seeing my grandfather, lying in his own bed, surrounded by friends, grand-kids, and his own children...laughing and sharing his life. What an amazing gift to have given...and one that can never be repaid. Still, though the years have passed, Dr. Chavez remains a mainstay in my 'medical life,' often sounding more grandfatherly than medical. No doubt, you and your family will get the very best with Dr. Celso Chavez and his team of committed health care providers."
Valley Medical Obstetrics - Dr. Geneen Bigsby (208) 746-1383
"When my wife became pregnant with our twins, she immediately began seeing Dr. Geneen Bigsby for prenatal care. I did my best to accompany her on these visits, and soon found her to be exceptionally cared for by Dr. Bigsby and her team. Despite that Dr. Bigsby had her own first-child during the pregnancy, she had recouped nicely and delivered our twins on August 10th, 2001 at 1:16 and 1:17 a.m...one of the top three events in my entire life. We trusted Dr. Bigsby whole heartedly, and would recommend her, without hesitation, if you are adding to your family. ...professional...caring...sincere...our friend...Dr. Geneen."
