This so called Dr. lied to me and did not do what he said he was going to do during surgery. His lack of knowledge cost me a year and a half of my life. And led to another surgery to correct his mistakes. Please do not trust him!!! It took s16 hour surgery to get my life back. He needs to retire...more

While Dr. Johnson is good surgeon, he is terrible at follow up visits. Spends no time with you. Doesn't give you a straight answer. Actually he doesn't give you a chance to get a word in while he talking and walking out the door.

I have been seeing doctor Johnson for years and consider him to be the best in his field. Explains everything to where you can easily understand and is so very nice to have as my Doctor. He has been such a great help to me through my procedures and I trust him to the fullest.
