Dr. Johnston is a breath of fresh air. Kind, smart, thorough, good diagnostician with a wonderful bed side manner. He has only been in Baltimore for a month and I caught him on the fly. What a find. I'm sure the people of Baltimore will grow to love him as much as the Down Easters.

He really spent a lot of time answering my parents' questions and when my mom decided to have her hip replacement it all went very smoothly. The office staff was very courteous. The joint classes were helpful and the hospital was clean and the nurses were so nice. She is doing wonderfully. I am very grateful.

Dr. Johnston spent a lot of time with us explaining the various options and answering our questions. I am now a year out from my knee replacement and thrilled with the results. I can exercise without any pain in the knee. I am so happy to have a surgeon like I'm so close to our home.

Dr. Johnston is a great surgeon. He did my hip replacement 3 years ago and recently I came back for my knee replacement on the other side. The experience has been fantastic. I would recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Johnson has always been considered one of the very best Clinicians in Maine. Such proved to be true in my knee replacement. Discomfort with minimal. Healing was rapid. This surgeon is wonderfully gifted!

How was your experience with Dr. Johnston?

About Me

My philosophy is simply to give each patient the best possible care. In hip and knee arthritis often times non-surgical care is the best.  In my experience each patient is unique and there is no "right time" to do surgery.  It is important ...
