I would highly recommend Dr. Johnson and the Sportsmed staff.
in Decatur, AL |
Cut a nerve at the spine while removing a tumor. As a result, I developed CRPS Type 2, which is one of the most painful diseases known to man. No warning of what I may be facing with any nerve pain or issues at all. He completely minimized what could happen. Wouldn't let him do surgery on my dog. He doomed me to a life of pain. Don't let him touch you.

I had the best experience with dr Johnson and his staff. I would recommend him to everyone. Thank you all for making this a giant success for me!!
Ider, AL |
Dr. Johnson is one of the kindest, caring Doctors I have ever used. He is very thorough, knowledgeable and explains procedures in a way that can be understood. I would definitely recommend him to any of my family and friends.
in Decatur, AL |
He is a good surgeon. He doesn't operate unless he feels it is absolutely necessary. He has a good bedside manner. He took his time with me and explained things well. His assistant is knowledgeable and helpful.

Dr. Johnson is an exceptional doctor with an incredible bedside manner. He is compassionate and spends a great deal of time listening to the patient and family. I would highly recommend Dr. John Johnson.
Murfreesboro, TN |
What a waste of my time. I should have read the reviews before. Waited for over 3 hours in a room not including waiting room area. I called to ask if he was a specialist on my condition nurse promised that he was a specialist WRONG he had no answers at all. If you have a serious health condition avoid this doctor at all cost because that is all he will do is cost you money and no answers. A total waste of time and money. He could not answer a simple question and I would not want him to operate.
in Woodville, AL |
Please don't use this doctor. My experience was horrible! Spent maybe 5 minutes and only did x-rays for my neck pain which left my arms and hands numb and ran up my neck and head. Said there wasn't anything wrong and as far as he was concerned I could go back to work which is heavy construction! Him and his staff are very cold and unconcerned. I would give him a lower rating than 1. a zero!
No chance will I ever recommend him and I have never seen him. Been waiting for over 2 hours. NO explanation as to why.
