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.
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.
