Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Johnson "Dr. Johnson believes that treatment for a patient's condition should be determined after considering all the treatment options available.  Many times, the best outcome is achieved with more conservative, less invasive methods.  He strives to discuss all options with the patient and their family to develop a treatment plan that encompasses the patient's lifestyle, quality of life and what they are most comfortable with.  Surgery is considered when all other treatments have been explored, discussed and have been determined to not achieve the outcome that the patient was hoping for.  Surgery is a decision that is arrived at mutually by Dr. Johnson and the patient.  Dr. Johnson takes the time to thoroughly explain the surgery planned and the risks associated with the procedure."
