DR. JOHNSTONE WAS THE BEST! HELPED ME SEE THE UPS AND DOWNS OF SURGERY. WALKED ME THROUGH SOME PHYSICAL THERAPY EXERCISES TO TRY AT HOME, SO I COULD AVOID THE HIGH COSTS OF PHYSICAL THERAPY NOT COVERED BY INSURANCE. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM!!

He has horrible bedside manners. He never introduced himself to my wife right before surgery and he did not come to the recovery room and explain how the surgery went. He is very rude and I would never give him my business again.
in Spanaway, WA |
The staff canceled my wifes follow up after her hand surgery. The carpal tunnel release did not solve the problem. No help, recommendations for other treatments. Now her hand is still in constant pain-hypersensitive, with inflammation, tried gabapentin, now on Lyrica seeing a rheumatoid arthritis specialist. Carpal tunnel failed, waste of time, money, made her condition worse.
