“My wife, Vicki, and I were in the middle of the Sea of Japan this summer when I fell and broke my leg in three places. I was told I would be leaving the ship the next day and sent to a Japanese hospital for examination and possible treatment. During the day I called Dr. Thomason which was night time in Gastonia. I could not reach him, but he called us in a few minutes and advised us to the take a picture of the X-ray taken on the ship with an iPhone and send the picture to him. Dr. Thomason did not push me to come home but said he believed it would be ok to travel back home for the needed operation on my leg. A Japanese doctor agreed and consulted with Dr. Thomason during the night in the states and the Japanese doctor was able to give me a "Fit to Fly" certification that would allow me to come home for the surgery. When I returned home two days later, I had been scheduled for the operation. I appreciate Dr. Thomason talking to a doctor in Japan late at night to help me be able to have surgery and follow-up at home. I feel I received the best care from Dr. Thomason, his staff, the hospital and the rehab unit.  The Best!”

“Dr. Thomason has operated on me four times all for different reasons and I recovered well and was back to normal in a very reasonable amount of time. He is a great surgeon.”

“As usual, Dr. Archibald was very thorough in explaining my MRI, the problem and the treatment. I have complete confidence in his handling of my health issues.”

“Within two months I went from very minor issues of slight discomfort in my right knee to excruciating pain 10+. I knew something had to be done quickly because I could not take two steps without severe pain. My family physician, Dr. Rinehart, recommended Dr. Archibald and I knew right away I could trust the recommendation. This conclusion was spot on especially after meeting Dr. Archibald and his superb staff. If I had not been so wracked with pain the meeting would have been like a family reunion. Everyone was supportive and careful to keep me informed and comfortable with my visits.  I highly recommend Dr. Archibald and his staff and am thankful I had the good fortune to have them work with my knee. Still recovering still somewhat sore at times but as I am reminded this is major surgery, luckily I had the best team on my side.”

“Dr. Parikh becomes sure he is treating the correct problem. He recommends treatment with good details of what will be done and how that will happen. I am well pleased with Carolina Orthopaedic.”

“Dr. Johnson is more than just a doctor. He takes the time to get to know his patients and always goes the extra mile to make sure that an athlete's long-term health is first priority. He is never in a hurry and takes time to stress the importance of proper exercising and stretching. Dr. Johnson has helped me with my arm-care program since I was 10 years old and I definitely recommend him to anyone, whether they are an athlete or not.”

“Hopefully I'll never need any more surgeries but if I did I would certainly go back to Dr. Clay Thomaon. His dad was my cardiologist and I can't say enough good things about either one of them. I have referred many people to Dr Clay who needed an orthopedist. His staff was also to notch, which can't be said about many practices anymore.”
– Joanne H.
“I feel Dr. Erik Johnson is probably the best doctor that has ever treated me. I have suffered a few years with my shoulder being told that all I had was arthritis. Dr. JOHNSON OPERATED AND I CAN LAY IN A BED AND SLEEP AGAIN. He never prejudiced me like some doctors like all I wanted was something for pain. Of which I have no need now, that my pain is almost totally gone. I believe in another month or so and I'll  be totally pain-free. Thanks for repairing my shoulder. You and your staff are the BEST EVER.”
