I've seen Dr Johnston for recreational and aging injuries for 17 yrs or longer. I have found Dr J and Stephanie (his PA) to be excellent diagnosticians, they explain treatment options to me. I required surgery for a complete tear of my rotator cuff in 2013, and I made a complete recovery in six months as a result of Dr. J's surgical skills and received wonderful physical therapy with Brian and follow up support with Stephanie.

Dr. Johnston is not only extremely knowledgeable, he is caring. He spends time with his patients and explains what to expect. He is conservative in his treatment and puts the patient's well being first.

I came in with right shoulder pain which I have been having for awhile. I was giving an xray and Dr Johnston came in and explain my situation and diagnosis in a fashion that I could understand and knew exactly what needed to be done. After my treatment, I feel 100% better. He was very professional and friendly where I did not feel uncomfortable with him. I must say this is rare for me to feel comfortable with a doctor. I would definitely recommend Dr. Johnston to others.

I explained to him that I was in severe pain, he ordered X-rays of my knees and shoulder. He said he didn't see anything wrong with my knees and my shoulder will need to be replaced. He also said he could inject one knee and my shoulder. Neither injection did any good at all. When he injected my knee he could see swelling on the ultrasound. I asked for an off work slip, and he informed me that he did not issue off work slips. I went through 4 weeks of swelling in my knee ..would not recommend

Excellent. Dr. Johnson was very professional, listened to my concerns, and very attentive. OrthoAtlanta has a nice facility, updated equipment and Dr. Johnson explained the X-ray results that was easy to understand. Explained well what next steps should be.
