Dr. Johnson is the best. He takes the time to do things right. My recovery time after his surgeries have been much shorter than the average due to his careful work. I will definitely go back to him if I have the need. He really cares about his patients.

Dr. Johnson and his staff are wonderful!!! His nurses are so sweet and funny....they go above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable. He is one of the best doctors that I've ever been to, not to mention he did an excellent job repairing my knee. It has been 3 months and I haven't had any problems with it

Dr. Johnson is an incredibly knowledgeable, kind and personable surgeon. He takes the time to really listen and talk with you about your condition, treatment options, concerns, etc. I have complete trust confidence in him.

Doctor Johnson repaired my right rotator cuff in 2005. I had a bad tear but returned to work with no restrictions (auto technician) after rehab. I worked every day until I retired in March 2011. I continue to live an active lifestyle, woodworking, restoring a 1935 Chevy pickup and riding bicycles,including mountain bikes in rough terrain. If I or anyone I know needed the skills of a surgeon I would recommend Dr. Johnson exclusively.
