Dr. Johnson is down to earth and unlike most doctors he actually listens. Dr. Johnson is patient and takes the time to access YOUR concerns. You would be a fool not to make Dr James Johnson your doctor.
Littleton, CO |
Great experience, he was very friendly and professional.

I'm still recovering. However, Dr. Johnson's expertise has allowed for a terrific long term prognosis. He and his staff are always professional, prompt, and courteous.
Denver, CO |
Dr. Johnson was professional and helpful. He was able to make a quick diagnosis and then we verified it with an MRI. Minor knee surgery was required which happened quickly and has been relatively pain free. I didn't even use any of the meds they prescribed. Super organized, punctual, professional, exactly what you want in a doctor. His staff was pretty awesome too. What a great team! Highly recommended.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Johnson has worked with me for several years to treat damage to my shoulder resulting from years of football and rugby and general rough use throughout my life. I've had nothing but excellent advice, treatment, and results throughout that time and would recommend him to anyone seeking orthopedic care.
Denver, CO |
Dr. Johnson is a very kind and patient Doctor. He was thorough in his evaluation but also compassionate when I was in a lot of pain. His Physician's Assistant - Nick was informative and always answered my questions. This is the best meniscus scope I have had. I have recovered very quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson.
Dr. Johnson is always friendly and courteous! He makes sure you understand all your options and thoroughly discusses treatment plans to ensure you make the choice that works best for your recovery.

in Denver, CO |
I had a great experience with Dr. Johnson and his PA. I went in with knee pain and he immediately put me at ease and explained in detail what the diagnosis was, and what I should expect as far as improvements and next steps. It was a very good experience from start to finish.
Denver, CO |
Very professional and personable. Answered all my questions pre and post op. Explained what was in my MRI and what would be done in surgery to correct it. Everything went as planned. Surgery center is very nice and staff was friendly and professional.
