Dr. Johnson did a TKR for me. We tried several things before the surgery. He suggested I make the final decision. He did not rush anything. Post surgery has been good and he is very caring. I would recommend him to anyone. He is with a great TCO group. His staff is wonderful and caring.

Dr. Johnson has treated many of my family members and friends over the years. It was determined I needed a total knee but Dr Johnson offered successful conservative treatment that postponed the need for surgery for almost 2 years. The total knee was preformed 3 weeks ago and according to the literature I am well ahead of schedule and very satisfied with the result. Jim Phillips

On a personal level, he is a nice man, & committed to helping people in foreign clinical volunteer work. My primary doctor says he's an excellent surgeon. His skills freed me from hip pain, & I am grateful. His communication skills are lacking coherence, organization, & completeness. Questions are ignored. The patient wanting to know about arthritis, the surgery, recovery, PT, and the overall plan will need to rely on personal research elsewhere, e-mails to his nurse, or blind faith!

Dr. J. is a really good one. I had a sneaky knee infection that turned from a strain into something seriously worse. After two unproductive visits to an E.R., I was able to get in to see Dr. J the next forenoon (fast). He checked things out and got a number of tests going. Late that p.m. I got a call from him, he wanted to operate on me that night! So around 11pm he, his team, and I were in the operating room. I was in the hospital a week recovering. Years later all is great. Thanks again Doc.
