Care Philosophy

My approach is to be compassionate to the individuals need, understanding that coming to me for ANY reason is a scary prospect. I try to explain every aspect of all options available to the patient and my practice uses the latest technologies available in minimally invasive surgery. Many times, my patient is surprised at the types of surgeries performed today using laparoscopic & laser based procedures.

Dr. David Johnson did a small intestine resection on me for obstruction. Did an excellent job. I am getting stronger every day. I don't believe he had control over my post op care, he was the surgeon at Mark Twain Hospital at San Andreas, CA. Hospital stay was 19 days in bed, which is way too long. Plus another day in bed at local convalescent hospital. His 18 years of experience really paid off for me and I am grateful. Highly recommended.

Dr. Johnson did my hernia surgery. He's highly trained and very experienced in the best hernia repair method, the Shouldice method. He's caring, compassionate, takes time with patients and I had great confidence in him going into the surgery. He did not disappoint and since my surgery several years ago, I've been great! I highly recommend the Canadian created Shouldice method because that is the gold standard. Bring a good book to your appointment because you'll probably wait a good while.

I would totally recommend Dr. Johnson. He was highly recommended by my GP because of a hernia procedure I needed. I had never had surgery in my adult life so I was more than tentative. My consultation proved that he should absolutely be my surgeon. He was personable, compassionate and professional. The procedure was very smooth and the doctor did a great job. As a matter of fact I just had my follow up appointment with him today. All good!
