Done more than other doctors.

Merry B. | Jun 22, 2023

I have seen Dr. Johnson for years and his staff is always helpful and able to treat my running injuries. Today, I took my teenage son to see him after seeing another doctor that suggested surgery on a labrum tear. Dr. Johnson always has other non-surgical options for healing sports related injuries. I very much appreciate at least trying non-surgical treatments before rushing into surgery (especially with a teenager). I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and his staff!

I have visited Dr. Johnson along with my four very active and athletic daughters for many years. Dr. Johnson has always been so. kind and wonderful with each visit. He is able to figure out the issues and treat them appropriately. He does not recommend treatments that are. not necessary and tries to resolve all issues without surgery. If surgery is indicated, I always feel confident everything possible was done prior to arriving at that decision. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and have done so with those who have asked for a recommendation for many years.
