This "doctor" doesn't even use science. Look up some of his PowerPoint presentations concerning opioid induced hyper-algesia. I am not on any pain meds so save your judgements. Oh yeah! Don't forget to buy his book!! Doesn't even deserve one star. Such a condescending jerk.

He is a ridiculous man who is condescending to the point of hilarity. He is a cliche cartoon of a doctor. To be avoided at all costs.

He saved my life countless times and is benevolent. He has gotten me through hell and back and there for me 24-7 without fail. The other bad reviews are vicious lies and wild accusations from anger because Dr. Johnson will only prescribe healthy solutions, not the drugs addicts crave and seek. As an addict, I have seen people do this to both hospital docs and outpatient docs repeatedly. It gives addicts a terrible image and stigma. Quit before the drugs consume you. He will help you QUIT!

Dr Johnson was incredibly rude and condescending, I went to see him for help with an alcohol problem and he didn’t even talk to me but already diagnosed me with multiple personality disorder through a 15 question Survey which I don’t have I’ve been diagnosed by several other doctors, and he judged me for the medication my other doctor prescribed me for my severe adhd and laughed at my depression and anxiety, worst doctor ever Wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Was sent here for pain management of a 5 tear rotator cuff. Was pretty much told the pain is in my head... 3 weeks later I had to have surgery because I couldn’t move my right arm (I happen to be a paraplegic as well). No compassion whatsoever Now has me marked with a suppressive disorder on my record! I wouldn’t recommend this Dr to diagnose anyone. A total waste of my time and money . Find someone credible

Traumatic experience felt like I was interrogated while naked in front of a dozen people I didn't know. Not recommended for mild depression patients.

Dr Johnson over medicated my son and sent him home to die. He was 41 and not in bad health. Even the pharmacist questioned his decisions.
