We really liked Dr Johnson. He was very knowlegable and we'll informed. He gave answers to problem that we liked. A really great doctor.
Hickory, NC |
His demeanor was not warm and friendly. If you are an active athlete, you are welcomed. If you are overweight or old, he won't make eye contact.
in Rock Hill |
Saw Dr. Johnson the first time for FS. He was kind, patient & explained everything very clearly. Received an injection, did his PT protocol, total recovery. Came back 6 mos later, w/what he stated was FS in opp shoulder yet no MRI to verify . He was rude, impatient & condescending. Placed needle for inj in wrong area, dug around in joint instead of reinserting causing horrible pain, refused to prescribe Lidocaine patch for pain . Left in tears. He acted as if I was a bother to him.
in Hudson, NC |
Excellent physician that took time to make sure I completely understood my condition and that I was satisfied with the proposed corrective action. I will contact him in the future with any Orthopedic needs.
in Taylorsville, NC |
Great physician, especially with sports related injuries. Diagnosed my collarbone injury right away.
in Provo, UT |
Dr. Johnson has a nice sense of humor that always puts me at ease about my sports-related injuries. We connected through basketball, and it was good to have a physician that was not only very knowledgable but I could also connect with quite well. He definitely knows his stuff and his staff is very friendly as well.

Dr. Johnson always wants me to have the best care possible. I can tell that he really cares about me and my health. He is professional and very knowledgable.
Hickory, NC |
Dr. Johnson was very knowledgeable and took care of my problem and I'm feeling great. I would highly recommend him to friends and family.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Amazing care and concern for us. He was attentive and listened well to our problems. He explained the details of our problem well and explained the medical conditions very well. He is friendly and knowledgable. He answered all our questions.
in Hickory, NC |
Doctor Johnson is wonderful. I am a very active person, but have a few miles on me and get injured not too infrequently. Dr. Johnson is always able to fix me up and get me back to the sports I enjoy. He is the team Physician for the Lenoir Rhyne University athletic teams and is the most respected sports medicine doctor in town. I refer all my friends to him. Dr. Johnson you rock!!!
in Hickory, NC |
Dr. Johnson is excellent. My mother had a bad hip fracture and required surgery. He did a great job and explained the entire recovery process. He was very kind and gentle with her. He even came into the hospital of his day off to check on her. Such a nice and compassionate doctor.
Hickory, NC |
This has to be the worst physician I have ever visited. His bedside manner is terrible, no eye contact, rude, arrogant, zero compassion. I left in tears not once but twice because of the way he treated me. I'm so sorry I wasted my time and my money. There are plenty of other decent and kind orthopedic surgeons who really want to help you.
in Lenoir, NC |
Arrogant, impatient, and completely uncompassionate regarding my injury and the issues that came with it with regard to maintaining my quality of life. Avoid if at all possible.
in Hickory, NC |
took my 88 year old Mother for a broken shoulder. Dr. Johnson was very rude and hateful to her. Wish I had read reviews. I certainly hope he lives to be a very old man and is treated with the same degree of disrespect and rudeness he displayed. The only good point was his nurse was very nice and helpful. I am sorry that she has to deal with someone like him daily.
Hickory, NC |
I had ACL repair from Dr.Johnson and he insisted on cadaver repair. However, I am a 19 year old male who is active and plays sports. Normally an autograft results in stronger ACL, but longer recovery time. This doctor strongly insisted on cadaver repair so my family went with it. However, I soon found out that he now recommends autograft to other patients of the same age range, but for me insisted the exact opposite just because I told him I will likely be playing sports recreationally.
Horrible bedside manner, arrogant, and impatient with 92 year old patient. This young man had the nerve to say it was a waste of time for you to come here, which translates to you've wasted MY time. Not in a million years would our family recommend/suggest this person to anyone else as it would be a true insult to do so! What a shame!
