Dr. Johnson operated on my leg using a skin graft from my thigh. He made what seemed an impossible repair look easy, and he put me at ease with his bedside manner and a thorough explanation of what he would do. I had complete confidence in him and recommend him highly.

This surgeon is top notch. Highly professional and gifted. He took my case after another plastic surgeon was having problems with my case. Dr. Johnson straightened out my issues and the results were outstanding. I owe a lot to Dr. Johnson. He did my breast reconstruction and a trigger finger...more
