I had my first appointment in mid June. They were to get authorization for gel injections in my knees. I’ve called back twice - no call back - nothing. Poor response time. Now looking for an orthopedist that actually does what they say they will. If our insurance takes 3 weeks for a prior authorization approval, then at least let us know you‘re still working on it. Phone calls should be returned - certainly within 3 weeks.

The most important thing to me is that the appointment commences at the scheduled time. This has almost always been the case at the Kissimmee office. I, therefore, would rather make my appointments at that location. Celebration tends to make me wait longer than my scheduled appt. time before I am shown to the examination room.

Dr. Johnston is the best! I’ve never had a doctor work so hard to understand what I want and meet my specific needs. He doesn’t make me feel weak or stupid.....he is just kind and knowledgeable. I wouldn’t go to anyone else.

I am very disappointed with Dr. Johnston, Dr. Dore was replaced by Dr. Johnston, my knee replacement was done by Dr. Dore 2012, my knee after surgery was left with a drops foot and a compressed nerve. I tried to out grow my pain, but it still persist, not happy, nobody seem to be able to feel the pain, but I do. I went to see Dr. Johnston 6-27-18, his assistant was very helpful to me and for Dr. Johnston, Dr. Johnston because he stood in hall way and never acknowledge me. BJW esq.

Dr. Johnston gave me the facts about my condition and the options to address it. The surgery was a breeze and my pain was limited due to the minimal invasive nature of Dr. Johnston techniques. I was walking within days of surgery and never wore a brace.

I have been a patient of Dr. Johnson since successful shoulder surgery in 2012. He also maintains a hip replacement I had in 2006. I have never been disappointed in any interactions with Dr. Johnson.. I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Johnson and Celebration Orthopaedic.

I went in to see Dr Johnston for knee surgery and the practice was well aware of my severe spine issues before hand. Not sure how I was handled in surgery but back/spine issues were extreme. I was unable to sleep in my bed for 5 weeks and could not walk without crutches for that period. Ended up in ER 2 days after surgery with bleeding into thigh, ER says they requested Dr but did not arrive. Unsure why but office visit next day to take off blood. Knee worse today than before surgery

He did my total knee replacement in Sept 2015. He is caring, knows what he is doing, jovial, pays attention to what the patient says. I have recommended him to two friends and they have both seen him. He will be operating on one in May.
