Tyngsboro, MA |
I went to this doctor last year for neck pain. He said I had a c7 disc herniation, said his staff was calling in a prescription and told me to go to physical therapy. His staff never actually called in the prescription and come to find out, I have a c5-c6 disc herniation w radiculopathy. Hespent maybe 5 min with me and didn't answer any of my questions. Which is fine since he misdiagnosed me anyway. There's other local doctors that are amazing, I wouldn't trust him with my cat!

I would not recommend Dr. Johnson to my worst enemy. I went to him with severe pain down my leg. He took an X-ray and said he saw nothing but some arthritis, and gave me a cortisone shot in the rear and said that some massage therapy would help. I went for two sessions of physical therapy and each time I came home with such unbearable pain. I didn't return. After seeing another Dr and an Mri found I had a herniated disc pressing on a nerve and required surgery. Steer clear of Dr Johnson!!!!!!!!!
Warner, NH |
Visited Dr Johnson twice for a problem recurring over 2 years. Would have gone elsewhere after my first visit if my second episode of pain was not so severe. On the first visit I went in as a new patient with back pain from a suspected weight lifting injury, an xray was ordered and I was discharged with a possible bone spur irritating surrounding muscles. 2 years later I returned with crippling pain and again sent away with a normal for your age. A 2nd opinion and MRI showed 3 bulging discs.

I went in having hip pain in the same area that had a stress fracture and bursitis before. I was looking for guidance on what could be causing the continued discomfort/pain. I am a runner and have been out almost a year with these issues. He didn't let me explain any history, looked at x-rays saying nothing there (my injuries have never shown unless MRI). Said I could cross train if I even knew what that was and sent me off saying I could come back with real pain. Not going back, discouraging
