Dr Johnson is a remarkably friendly and competent surgeon. I have known him since his residency at MUSC and he has conducted three surgeries on me, all with excellent results and rapid healing. He has always been prompt and efficient with his time, his staff is friendly, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

I give Dr. Johnson a huge recommendation for anyone in search of an awesome surgeon. I visited the Emergency Room on a Tuesday morning after an MRI I was informed I would be needing emergency surgery. Dr.Johnson was on call and what a wonderful bedside manner he has. He explained all about the procudure, in terms I could understand. I spoke 2 more times before - I felt more relaxed once I went into surgery. He visit 3 times with me before being dischard. Thank you, Dr Johnson you're awesome!

Hard hernia repair with mesh to stop the pain. Now I'm in More pain then I was in prior to surgery.Sent to other Doctors by Dr Johnson and finally back to him to tell me that's it's likely nerve entrapment from the mesh and I should see a pain doctor because he couldn't do anything further for me. Was in his office 1 minute and didn't my even check me to see if the hernia had returned to cause the pain. He is Very fast with patients and wish he would have taken a little more time to help!!!

Dr. Johnson and his staff at Carolinas Center for Surgery are the best!!! He is so compassionate and he took his time explaining all the details about my surgery to me and my family. I never have to wait long when I come in for my followup appointments. I wish I could have him as my primary care doctor. Thank you so much Dr. Johnson! You are literally a lifesaver!!!

Couldn't give me an answer to what was wrong/why I was having pains, was in my room for about a minute-no joke-and sent me on my way. I waited over 12 hours for him to say that. Seemed impatient, unprofessional.

Dr. John 'Ted' Johnson is a confident surgeon. He is willing to answer any questions pertaining to surgical procedures. I was very comfortable discussing my surgical procedure & I quickly developed a trust in his abilities. I am a 63 yr old male. I have recently undergone an Open Ventral Hernia Repair/Bilateral Laparoscopic (TEP) Inguinal Hernia Repair at the Surgical Center of Morehead City, NC performed by Dr. Johnson.
