My overall experience with Dr. Johnson and the practice team was excellent. The dialog with the providers, including Dr. Johnson, before and after the procedure was very helpful, and outcome of the procedure itself (shoulder joint replacement) was excellent

Two weeks out from my knee scope, I'm happy with my initial results and progress. I feel Dr. Johnson was able to diagnose my issue and recommend treatment while keeping in mind my personal objectives for recovery and future activity levels. My recovery to this point has gone as he predicted it would.

Dr. Johnson has taken good care of my knee for 6 years and 1 surgery so far. I have a complicated Inflammatory condition and mechanical injury that is difficult to keep under control, but he works with my specialists to coordinate care and I feel well supported by his team effort. Ortho Colorado and Panorama are excellent facilities.

I chose Dr. Johnson because he did both of my late husband’s shoulder many years ago. When I needed surgery I remembered his name from then. He is very professional and has a great team. I would recommend him to anyone looking for help with a shoulder injury.

He is very thorough, answered all my concerns and sent an MRI referral to insurance before leaving from my examination room. I will have additional appointments due to my injury and feel confident he will treat my injury as needed to have me back to my regular activity. His friendly personality was extremely pleasant and helped me to relax and feel comfortable despite my intense pain.

Dr. Johnson and his team will took care of me at each and every before and after the surgery. Though seeing a doctor is not something we want our loved ones to be at, but given any knee or shoulder problems, I will strongly recommend them to Dr. Johnson.

Dr Johnson explained the complicated situation of my knee injury and what the next steps were. He was thorough and patient with explaining and answering questions. He and his team were great with following up. My injury required prompt action on his part, as was conveyed by him. I also needed a staged surgery (one urgent, then another six weeks later). Dr Johnson has done both surgeries. Both times I’ve received excellent care and felt I couldn’t have been in better hands. I’m very grateful he has been my Orthopedic Doctor.

Dr. Johnson was very kind and considerate during my visit. I just moved here 2 months ago from Minnesota and he made me feel so comfortable and safe with my decisions. He was straight forward as well letting me know my limits and the procedure itself. He was very supportive and made me feel really good about having me be my surgeon. Highly recommend him!
