Clinton Township, MI |
Dr. Johnson is one of the most caring and easy-going (but DEFINITELY qualified) surgeons, i.e., neurosurgeons, around! I have had 50 years of spine issues and would go to no one else. He has done several surgeries on my spine and the outcomes have been very positive! He takes time with you as a patient in the office--I have never felt rushed! Very qualified and just plain nice. I have been a RN for 35 years and he is my doctor of choice!

What a great surgeon from the first time I met Dr Johnson I knew I was going to get great care, and I did. Could not be happier after he cleaned out my lower spine I can live,work and golf pain free now I highly recommend Dr Robert Johnson and all of the Michigan Head and Spine to everyone

Dr Johnson is one of the nicest, caring doctor I see. I knew I had a serious back problem and I would need surgery. He was actually the fourth neurosurgeon I saw. I was so sure that he would be able to help me. I had no confidence in the first 3 doctors so continued to look further. He always spends the time I need to answer questions. He was always available when I suffered an unexpected complication. After 6 back surgeries there is no one else I would let care for my back. He's the best!

Upon consulting with Dr. Johnson at my first appointment for my lower back pain I was very relieved that he suggested no surgery at this time. He was very thorough going over my xrays and showed me the areas that are causing the pain. But for now he recommended some PT to strengthen my core and the lower back area. Looking forward to maybe seeing him next year for an update on my condition.
