Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Johnstone "My passion for orthopedics started during medical school while serving with the Army. After graduating from Johns Hopkins University I attended Vanderbilt University Medical School. The Army sponsored by education and ultimately became my first career. I completed a fellowship in Hand Surgery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I then returned to Madigan where I stayed for 10 years. I have an active Hand Surgery practice serving patients from all over Pierce County."

Dr. Johnstone performed my carpal tunnel surgery. He informed me of the two surgical options and was very knowledgeable. He and his staff made me feel very confident in their care!
Fox Island, WA |
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.
