i saw steen Johnsen md on 3-5-21 for an ankle injury. a boot was issued, surgery was discussed, i was told to not weight bear & an mri was ordered; mri results were in my portal on 3-10-21. i called his office 3-11, 3-12, 3-15 & 3-23 with no return calls. each time i was told their office had 72 hours to return a call. that's a pretty low bar but even that wasn't met. i sent a letter on 3-21 & received no response. on 3-24 i called again & my call was referred to a supervisor who called me back. he was polite & apologetic & offered to have me seen the following day. however, no one has been able to explain why my calls were not returned or why i wasn't contacted when my results were in my file. a patient shouldn't have to call following diagnostic testing; the dr's staff should immediately contact the patient. in the meantime, i chose to see a different ortho who's office returns calls in a timely manner & who feels i can recover without surgery & while weight bearing.

My first visit with Dr. Johnson, as he took over for my previous orthopedist. I was very impressed with Dr. Johnson. He was very knowledgeable and gave me the time to speak as well. Would recommend him if given an opportunity.

Extremely grateful that Dr. Johnsen took the time to do x-rays and a MRI on my ankle. I had spent 5 years with escalating pain. A year with a Podiatrist just receiving steroid injects. Band-aids as it turned out. Thank for the educated professional assessment and the surgery which made a great difference. Your office staff handles appointments and COVID safety well. Your Physician Assistant is excellent as well. Your casting person is extremely competent and efficient. Again thank you.

Dr. Johnsen is the best surgeon out there! He knows his stuff! Definitely worth the wait to see him. I’ve been a patient of his for nearly 10 years and he’s seen me through many knee, ankle, and foot issues. You won’t find a more knowledgeable or trustworthy doctor.

I have been seeing Dr. Johnsen for about 10 years. I guess he's so busy that each time I wait at least an hour to see him. I went in for a post op visit a week ago and waited once again. His time is no more valuable than a patient's. I left without seeing him and took all my medical records with me. He may be a good surgeon but after surgery he doesn't care at all about his patients. We are just numbers to bill.
