    Treating Doctor:
  • “Dr. Johnson was able to explain very clearly the origin of my particular problem, the pain associated with it and the best way of treating it in a precise and detailed way. In the past, he has done biceps reattachment surgery on me, and the results were fantastic. There’s no residual pain, and except for the scar, I might forget I ever had surgery. I have every confidence in him on all matters orthopedic and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”
