Dr. Johnson fixed my mother’s back then my sister-in-law’s mother’s back so he was the obvious choice for me when I needed back surgery. I have now had two procedures done by Dr. Johnson, both uncomplicated and successful. I have referred family and friends to him. I like the smallish hospital...Read More

Saw this man years ago for horrible neck pain. The worst doctor I have ever seen! Treated me with no respect or dignity! Very rude, only spoke to a tape recorder and even made negative comments about my previous neck surgery like I had it done on purpose! Left office in tears with no answer to my...Read More

I could not move my neck at all. Was in extreme pain. Dr. Johnson operated on my neck 8 years ago. Replaced bones and discs 4 thru 7 on my spine. Replaced all of it with titanium. Replaced some of the bones. He saved my life. I recommend Dr Johnson to anyone who needs spinal surgery.

Amazing surgeon. He was not only my Dr when a work related injury happened. But I worked with him for years at SSH. I cared for his patients. And he is the only surgeon I refer my family too. When my daughter needed surgery I couldn't imagine trusting any other neurosurgeon to operate on her.
