Dr. Johnson is a lifesaver. My husband suffered what was later determined to be a carotid aneurysm. Thanks to Dr. Johnson's experience, my husband was rushed directly into surgery after being life-flighted. As Dr. Johnson later explained, one look at my husband's massively swollen left eye indicated that something was leaking behind it, and time was of the essence. Thankfully, he was able to close down the bleeding and heal the resulting fistula. We are so thankful for Dr. Johnson's skill!

HE SAVED MY HUSBANDS LIFE. Removed a cancerous tumor from his brain , it was 1.5" in diameter.
We met Dr. Johnson when my husband was diagnosed with a huge brain tumor & was transferred to his care immediately. Always informative, very easy to talk to and to understand, Dr. Johnson's knowledge and expertise saved his life. His genuine care of our situation really shined and made us feel comfortable within a very tough situation. We fully believe that without Dr. Johnson doing what he did, my husband would not be alive today.

He is a true master in his profession. I was suffering from terrible sciatica pain and nothing worked to reduce or eliminate this pain until Dr Johnson performed a surgery. Now I am a happiest person on Earth, being free from sciatica for 6 months by now and I highly recommend Dr. Johnson to everyone who needs a neurosurgery!

He did not do what was best in my mother's situation. Now she is worse than before her surgery. We call at least twice a week to the office to try and get a consultation for him to answer our questions and no one returns our calls. Do not trust your family or yourself to this doctor or his practice.

We first met Dr Johnson when he did surgery on my mother in law . We were so pleased with him that I immediately decided to have back surgery that I had put off due to health issues. He is not only a highly skilled surgeon but totally researched my case to come up with the best possible procedure. After a 6 hour surgery I had heart complications and he sat with me in recovery for 3 hours till my cardiologist arrived. His bedside manner is 2nd to none. We have already recommended him to 3 friends
