“I have had both knees replaced (not at the same time). Dr. Thomason was terrific. After one of my surgeries, I had a problem with scar tissue. He corrected it and I have no problems since.”

“I'm a patient of Dr. Erik Johnson at Carolina Orthopaedic. He's treated me for my left shoulder injury that happened when I fell down a flight of stairs and the stairs won! He performed my surgery and has been THE best Orthopaedic specialist I have ever been to. He's very thorough, is always cordial and friendly as well as understanding of my situation whether it was a money issue when I was unemployed or a time constraint involving raising a family. I've recommended him to 2 others who have had Dr. Johnson perform their shoulder surgeries as well, both of which were very happy with him as I am. Dr. Erik Johnson is THE VERY BEST in his field and the staff at Carolina Orthopaedic are superb!!”

“July 28, 2016, started out like any other work-day in the summertime. It was HOT! Mid-morning, I was walking through the office on the way to the workroom to mail a letter when suddenly my right, big toe had a painful stinging sensation. My reaction, "OUCH!" I inspected my foot and didn't notice anything unusual and went on about my business. As the workday progressed my right foot/toe began to turn red and swell. Not being one to run to the doctor immediately when something happens health wise, I walked on it for 10 more days! During the 10 days, I iced the foot, soaked the foot in a warm Epsom salts bath, drank concentrated cherry juice in water after being diagnosed by several family members as having gout, and limped around, A LOT! I work in the healthcare field and finally one of our medical professionals insisted I see my PCP and go for an X-ray which revealed a pretty serious break of the second metatarsal of my right foot. I was shocked! My PCP referred me to Dr. Olson who fixed me right up with a walking boot. 12-14 weeks later I graduated to a lace-up leather brace, and currently, I am easing back into my regular shoes. The treatment from Dr. Olson and the staff at Carolina Orthopaedic was top-notch! Everyone from the front desk to the X-ray techs and the medical professionals that assist Dr. Olson during the office visit were excellent in the care of my right foot. I would trust Dr. Olson and Carolina Orthopaedic for all my orthopaedic challenges in the future....and I hope I don't have any more of those challenges in the future...Just saying!”

“"I messed up my shoulder and needed a reverse replacement done. Dr. Johnson and his PA both did all they could to help with my pain. Dr. Johnson gave me my options and let me decide which way I wanted to go. I was totally pleased with the care I was given by everyone at Carolina Orthopaedic and at the hospital. The surgery was done so well , that I even had a shorter recovery time than I expected. I would refer Carolina Orthopaedic and Dr. Johnson, to anyone who needs a good orthopaedic."”
