Have you seen Dr. Richard Johnston III?
August 26th, 2015From an older patient
I had my right shoulder rotator cuff repaired in 2005 and the left repaired a year later. Dr. Johnson is a fantastic doctor, kind and understanding. Here 10 years later, I am still pain free. I have had excellent results. Just thought I would weigh in here and let you know if I needed a repair, he would be the first doctor I would call...Thanks from an old patient.

He repaired my torn meniscus and left a piece of cartiledge behind. Went in for a follow up and indicated that I still had pain --- actually it felt worse. He bent my knee a few times, told me it was find. That cartiledge he left behind wound up bumping against the bone and scraping away. Don't bother.
December 8th, 2011Not always worth the wait
The biggest drawback to seeing Dr. Johnston is the wait time. I've waited as long as an hour to see him. His manner is inconsistent. Sometimes he's friendly but sometimes he seems distracted and distant. He operated on my rotator cuff, and I'm totally pleased. He's definitely a good surgeon, and I keep going back.

Dr. Johnston has been my orthopaedic doctor since 2002. In '02 I broke my arm and my initial x ray came back irregular, and he didn't want to proceed with casting. My dad urged him to do so, and he complied reluctantly. 2 weeks later I went in for recasting and sure enough the next xray showed a clean break. Now, 2011 as an avid runner I started getting awful shin pain; finally went to see him. His bedside manner was that of a man too busy to be bothered with something so "simple." Initial xray was clean, during my follow-up he spoke down to me and when I pushed back, insisting on the unnatural amount of pain and lack of improvement, he placated me in assigning a bone scan. Sure enough, my bone scan came back with 3 severe stress fractures. I leave his office every time in tears because of his condescending nature, inability and unwillingness to listen, and complete lack of tact or interest in what I have to say. I would highly advise anyone considering his services to reconsider and RUN the other way. Not the doctor for you if you want someone to listen to you or at least fain interest in what you have to say.

January 21st, 2010Exceeded my expectations
Dr. Johnston was very helpful and professional in diagnosing my knee injury and spent time discussing the injury and my options and recommendations, I didn't feel like he rushed through the process and I feel like he was willing to work with me to find the best solution for my injury. Would definitely recommend him to others.
