Waterford, MI |
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.

Dr. Johnson says...

I am particularly interested in Epilepsy and the surgical procedures for treatment.

Parkinson's and other movement disorders are conditions of high expertise and interest.

As chief of Neurological surgery at Sinai-Grace hospital, I also treat neurotrauma and perform general neurosurgical procedures.
