I allowed him to fuse my neck 3 years ago and I'm still miserable! After surgery I was left in my own urine for hours and sent home when I never should have been around midnight. It was the worst and my pain is a 10 years later. I recommend anyone considering fusion stay away from this hack job! Even my scar is horrible!

Dr. Johnson conducted two separate, unrelated operations on my back, one for a cyst and one for stenosis. Both were very successful and completed with no issues. Jeff is very knowledgeable and extremely competent. His staff was very helpful and caring. What separates Dr. Johnson from other neurosurgeons, is that he combines his technical knowledge with knowing his patient's physical, mental and emotional conditions. I highly recommend Jeff and thank him for his professional approach.

I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson's for over decade. I suffer from hereditary degenerative disc disease. I consider the only reason I am not disabled like others in my family due to the work and guidance of Dr. Johnson. In the post operation unit, nurses have rushed over to me because they saw me crying as I came out of the anesthetics. Each time I have earnestly told them my tears were of joy because the horrible nerve pain was gone and I could move and feel previously paralyzed areas.

I was suffered a right leg pain for more than 6 year until April 2016 I found Dr. Johnson that he gave me a correct diagnose. On April 20, I received decompression, removal of synovial cyst surgery in my lower spinal. Right after the surgery, the leg pain was gone. Now it's been 3 months after the surgery, I work and conduct all the activities as I never had the pain symptom. Dr. Johnson is a very care, skillful and knowledgeable surgeon. I highly recommend him to anyone with the similar symptom

I had a spinal fusion done about three years ago with major complications. I ended up getting an infection and being in the hospital for 24 days. It was extremely painful and continues to be a challenge. Dr. Johnson to this day takes care of my needs and always has. He has never ran from any problems I developed. I would recommend him to anyone wanting a caring surgeon.

Dr. Johnson and Carmel Wimber PA-C are the most caring and compassionate surgeons I have ever met in my life. I had issues with my spine, an injury I sustained while serving in the armed forces. I was very scared about the whole idea but the expertise, professionalism and wealth of knowledge they possess eased my mind. There is not a better team out there. Words cannot explain how much this team means to me! From the compassionate front desk to surgeons, they are the best there is! John McKey
