I recently had emergency surgery with Dr. Johnson and was very pleased. He was very thorough in explaining to me the procedure and approximate recovery times, which was hard to pinpoint since it was emergency and the full extent of the surgery was unknown. He was wonderful with following-up during my hospital stay. My nurses in the hospital said that they believed he is one of the very best -- and I believe it!
