I saw Dr. Johnson last year for my knee. His office and clinic staff were all very kind, helpful, and professional. It was very easy to schedule an appointment, and they were able to get me in quickly. Dr. Johnson was very informative and thorough with his evaluation and treatment. My knee has felt great since.

I loved my experience at Elite Sports Medicine and specifically with Dr. Johnson. He takes time getting to know his patients and he makes them feel at ease. He is very personable, he listens to all of my concerns, and he is compassionate with his care. If you are needing a doctor for any sports medicine needs I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson. His staff is also friendly and prompt. His nurses have always responded to my calls quickly and have taken the time to get to know me as well!

My daughter is a performance athlete and has recently suffered from a lower back injury due to over usage and the sheer act of the game. She had been seen at Elite in the past for other injuries and this was the first time seeing Dr Johnson. He did a wonderful job helping her understand her injury, demonstrating on a spine model the placement of her injury and then allowed her to see her x-ray and MRI. His nurse was very timely in returning calls & communicating to us between appointments.
