Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Johnson "As a surgeon in today's times one must never lose sight of the most important goal, the care and happiness of the patient. Ultimately this is what matters most and it was the idea of taking care of people which initially brought most physicians into the medical field. This has not changed today and it is what I strive for on a daily basis.....to truly take care of the patient."

Procedures: Gallbladder removal (Surgery), internal bile duct stint (sp?) for drainage (ERCP). I have never had any surgeries before so I did not know what to expect or how I would be treated. I have been through many PCP's over the years and I have never met a doctor that made me feel more...more
