After X-Rays he had a diagnosis that required a shoulder injection and did a great job although it was more painful than I expected.

The office was clean, the nursing staff were very friendly. Everyone I came in contact with were very professional. The wait was not long. I wasn't in the room long enough to flip through a magazine before the doctor came in and showed me what was wrong. He went over a plan to help me and sent me on my way. He was nice and broke it down to my level of understanding. He explained what meds might help, but did not push meds on me. He did mention my weight was making the problem worse, but in the nicest way possible. I did not feel dismissed or judged at all. I will definitely be seeing him again.

Dr. Johnson is extremely knowledgeable, caring and professional. His manner is friendly and he is always ready to listen. In this day of medical offices that have grown so large that they forget why they exist, Dr. Johnson and the entire OrthoCarolina staff are always pleasant and willing to help while making their patients feel appreciated and important.

Dr. Johnson has helped me and my family with many different bone and joint problems. He is super personable and friendly. He called me over a weekend after my surgery to make sure I was ok. His therapy department is great. Lovely man. I would recommend him and his nurses to anyone.

Dr. Johnson did a rotator cuff repair on my left shoulder just over two months ago and I've got no complaints. I had no problem going back to him for this surgery as the repair he did on my right shoulder two years ago was great. He always uses a model to explain where the problem is and answers any questions I've had. He always seems to care about my concerns and I never feel like he's rushing to see the next patient. I think he's a good doctor and highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Johnson is an excellent physician and surgeon. He actively listens to your concerns and has a positive approach and manner with the patient. I had outstanding results with my knee surgery. I couldn’t ask for better results, and his professionalism throughout the process was stellar. His bedside manner is outstanding as well as his surgical skills!
