Dr. Johnson is a very professional, caring doctor. He explained all my options. Surgery was done as out patient surgery, later that evening I received a phone call from Dr. Johnson himself asking how I was doing.

The Best

I have been to Dr. Johnson twice and both times I was in awe of his knowledge. The second time I came to him was for a second opinion on a diagnosis from another prominent Sport Ortho who was part of the Redskins medical team. After a 1 minute exam and a few questions, Dr. Johnson provided a preliminary diagnosis that was exactly correct. He then took the MRI captures and report for review to confirm his assumptions. The previous surgeon, who I am sure is very good, needed a 10 minute exam and the MRI results to get where Dr. Johnson was after 3 minutes. Bottom line, Dr. J said no surgery and prescribes PT. Within a few months I was back to normal (slightly Torn Rotator). I have also recommended 2 other friends to Dr. Johnson, one of whom had been to 6 different specialist with no success, and they both share my assessment of Dr. Johnson's skills. One of those gents needed a specialist to resolve an issue that was not in his area, and he was outstanding also.
