This was a very positive experience. Dr. Johnson was very detailed about my shoulder surgery and listened to my concerns and needs. Surgery was without difficulty and my recovery is better than expected.
in Greenwood Village, CO |
Dr. Johnson was able to diagnose my injury without X-rays and within minutes of seeing him. Within 24 hours I was feeling much better and was impressed with the attention and professionalism that I received all around.
in Denver, CO |
Dr Johnson has treated me twice in less than 6 months for broken humerus. The first break on the left arm/shoulder, he monitored for about 3 months until X-rays determined that it healed beautifully without surgery. I was very impressed because he is a surgeon and could have easily just done surgery but he chose the natural healing path instead. The second break, this time my right arm/shoulder was a complex fracture that misaligned bones. Even I could see that nature needed help

Excellent care and communication, friendly staff, confident and compassionate bedside manner, thoughtful aftercare plan. This is no surgery mill. Very grateful to Dr Johnson's, and his team's, work in getting me up and running again. Highly recommend.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Johnson and his staff are extremely approachable. He takes time to answer questions and assuage any concerns regarding your condition, treatment options and likely outcomes. He doesn't push surgery, and is clear about prognosis. Post surgery he and his staff are answer for questions and are just as helpful as before surgery. Results were awesome too. I had a partial meniscectomy + something-something. 90% at 14 days. Virtually no scars. Only neg: They are almost ALWAYS running late.
in Arvada, Colorado |
I would recommend Dr. Johnson in a heart beat. He knows what he's doing and does not cut corners telling you what you need to get better. I believe his experience and talent as a surgeon will get me back to my old 66 years old self!!
