Never would I recommend Dr.Johnston to anyone after I became disabled after a bulging disk surgery by Dr. Johnston the piece that was madeasy for the cages that go around the disk were to large had to make new ones while I layer on the operation table open and bleeding ant on to ICU because my blood pressure dropped. 2 days I spent then he cut my nerve going into my cannal. Never a word from him or his staff to see how into was, been years now a pain clinic every month oxy, morph, and a brace.

I have been very pleased with my care from Dr. Johnston and his staff! Everything went smooth and everyone was so very nice and professional ! The GNI Surgery Center was great! I have already recommended Dr. Johnston to a friend of mine! My recovery has been great!!

This is one of the most compassionate doctors I have had in my lifetime. He is personable, friendly, talks TO you, not AT you, and above all that? He is an excellent surgeon. He did a fusion, decompression, disectomy in December of 2015. I had had SEVERE sciatica, back pain and generally was in a lot of pain... One year later, I am no longer in pain and am back at work with no restrictions. The entire staff at GNI and Dr. Johnston are excellent, and I highly recommend this man as doctor to see

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!
