If there was a rating of zero for Dr. Johnson and his staff I would be making that submission. My wife has gone from sciatica before surgery to infection of the bone back to sciatica after the infection. Same issue if not worse than before. On the pain medications they do not have a clue on what works or does not. In the infection it is still being treated and is a crap shoot at best that the proper antibiotics are being prescribed due to the lack of bone biopsy to know exactly what type infect

Had 2 level fusion and decompression. Very friendly and compassionate surgeon! Recommend him to anyone needing spinal surgery!
