Alif fusion one level lumbar
A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Ian T Johnson - Posted on August 15th, 2016
At almost 2 years after alif lumbar fusion. As close to perfect as could be at 49. Diagnosis was correct. I hope he has picked a better PA. Or advised him on his bedside manner. Dr Ian was Johnson was otherwise, pleasant and is an excellent surgeon.

Does not come to see or speak with you after surgery.

After an extensive lumbar and spinal cord involved surgery, my mother was left on her own in the hospital and neither the doctor nor his PA came by to give my family ANY update on the outcome of my mother's surgery nor to check on her status. After calls to Dr. Johnson's private office, we were rudely directed to take it up with the head nurse at the hospital or to contact the neurosurgery department. We are still waiting for anyone with any information to give us an update on the surgery more than 24 hours after its conclusion. It is unacceptable for a doctor, regardless of their self-determined work load, to not provide a family or patient with an update after an extensive surgery. There are numerous similarly trained and qualified doctors out there who would provide the post-op care needed for this type of surgery, and I would recommend seeking them out over utilizing Dr. Johnson's services.

I thought was just me being frustrated with the follow up till I read the other reviews. I'm not alone. What a terrible experience with his PA. Never saw the DR again after the hospital. I didn't know what to expect. I pleaded with the office to make sense of the poor communication and service after surgery. They just ignored me. Never called back. I had to go to another office.

Doesn't help with post op care. Once he finishes sewing you up he is done with you. It is now up to the PA. If your in pain he thinks your faking it. Don't ever let him fix your neck or you will probably be in worse pain.

After you have surgery they will not spend any time with you. You will be on your own with your pain and all.
Fresno Office not to good.

Once he is done with surgery, there is no follow up with him. He is too busy to deal with any patients. His PA is who will deal with you, and he is not very good. You will get much more information using Google. Setting up a appoint with his office in Fresno is like pulling teeth. His office is terrible and I mean terrible. They will let your paperwork sit on their desks for weeks before calling you. And if you call them it takes them days to return your calls. His relationship with patient is zero. Once he is done operating on you, you will never be able to see him again. He is normally out of his office for weeks at a time. If you try to get any paperwork signed by him, such as papers required by your employer, it will take weeks, and the PA does not have permission to sign your workman's comp or disability papers or anything else. I could go on for a hour about all the things I didn't like. The PA could not even give me a estimate of how long before some of my pain goes away. He said you need to go to a physiologist for that information. Also you have to wait a long time at any given appointment for the PA to even show up to talk to you. The reason I say PA is that you will never get to see the doctor except for the one time that he meets with you to tell you how much you need back surgery. He is good salesman and dresses very nice, the one time that you will see him. If you want to have any relationship with your doctor after surgery stay away. Your on your own after surgery even if you are in terrible pain. I paid $200,000 for the operation and they won't even return their phone calls, how sad. And that is not a typo, it was $200,000. The Doctors surgery might be ok, but the office is terrible. And he is responsible for his terrible office. Plus if you have a problem he needs to be able to handle it. Again it takes weeks to get a hold of him, for he is always out of town.

Dr. Johnson is the most caring and all around wonderful doctor I have ever met. I find the amount of confidence he has in himself both refreshing and encouraging. I placed my life into his hands and trust his judgement whole heartedly; he has never let me down.
