not impresed

dr.Johnson has an outstanding reputation.I met with him and after waiting for 2 monts and an hour to se him, he saent about ten minutes with me. He let his fellow examine me.He disputed all the finding s in the report and sent me out ofr more tests like a nerve conduction test. I have sever steosis and seak legs.Two spine doctors have stated if i do not have surgery very soon, i may become paralyzed. I can barely stand up.after the tests it will be another 2 months before i can meet with him. His exam was cursory and he does not take any insurance so i just spent 500.00 for very little information.

It" s been over 14 years

I had surgery over 14 years ago for several back problems. 2 problems were caused by a surgeon that liked to butcher people. When I met Dr Johnson I was humbled. After 4 years of botched surgeries and pain med a doctor that didn't make me feel like a drug addict and more like a human being. To repair the problems that the other Doctors caused took 8 hours of surgery. Now 14 years later I can fully walk no pain and no pills. I love this doctor and have and will continue referring him to anyone that has back problems...

Terrible Experience

Came out of town to consult. Office is run like an assembly line. Overbooks apts. Spent over four hours in the office while doc. popped in and out. Doesn't listen. Very rude. Brags about his superior skills while you get a feeling that he hasn't even spent time understanding your case. I would NOT trust him to do surgery. The bad vibe is only intensified by the impression that you are a transaction and he doesn't care about you beyond that.

Rude, uncaring, overbearing, overpriced

Ridiculous wait times in the office. Doesn't spend time with you. Everything is structured as an assembly line with no respect/care for the patient. Doesn't accept insurance and is terribly overpriced. This surgeon is in it for the money. Money extraction business, not medicine. Don't understand why other doctors recommend this man. Wrong diagnosis is not surprising given the lack of attention and compassion. This is one of the rudest, worst experiences I've had, and I've been to a lot of other surgeons & doctors. Not having surgery with him and regret coming all this distance to see him. Live and learn...

Horrible Dr. and even worst bed side manner!!..

Saw Johnson 4 separate times and got 4 different diagnosis. Ordered a test them admitted that he had no idea how to read it, saying lets go look at the pretty colors on the test. His demeanor on each visit was extremely arrogant and narcissistic. I would not recommend him at all.
