Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Johansen ""Doctor" means "teacher": I consider it my professional responsibility not only to provide optimal medical and surgical care to my patients but also, to the greatest extent possible, to assure that they understand what is going on with them. As a surgeon for 35 years I have become increasingly aware of the importance of knowing and transmitting all the different treatment possibilities, upon occasion including doing nothing at all other than providing support and reassurance."

in Seattle WA |
I have TOS and Dr Johansson did my surgery on my right side. He was very informative, told me to set the bar low, it didn't work on everyone and could take 1-2 yrs healing.
