Death was the outcome if I had not been my own advocate! His misjudgement of not listening to the clients , who knows her body more than anyone. His opinionwould have lead to my death. I had been looking for answer to my nausea. Pain, weight loss , extreme weakness . I ask if maybe I needed a colonoscopy. He said I can tell you with almost 100% gruantee that your symptoms have nothing to do with your colon. So I left. My Family Dr refer me to Grastro Dr. All tests showed nothing. So that Dr refer me to another colon expert. She immediately order STAT a CT Scan with Contrast. Showed diverticulitis had ruptured and there was abscess and was connected with my bladder. There was a fissure and colon was leaking into Bladder. Put in hospital to control infection. 2 months later I have had a colon resection and piece of bladder. Hopefully can be reversed in 6 months. Labs not back from pathology. This does not express the pain and agony knowing I waso dying . I only hopes this helps you!

I highly recommend Dr. Johansen. I've had a hemorrhoid surgery (knife) in early 2000 that went well but the recovery was fairly brutal (nature of the surgery). Colonoscopy in 2009. Second hemorrhoid surgery in 2017 recently with rubber-band technique. Fabulous results and very easy on patient. In all cases, D. Johansen was exceptional in all phases of the experience. What a better place the world would be if all Drs. were of the calibre of Dr. Johansen!!
