"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." – Garrett S.

"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." – Joanna 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." – Robert R.

"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." – Dorothy M. 
"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!!" – Jennifer C.

"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!" – Kathy H.

"Dr. Archibald has performed two knee surgeries for me. I give him high marks in every category. Thank goodness I don't have to go to Charlotte to receive excellent orthopaedic care!" – Eleanor N.

"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." – Richard D.

"I have had both knees replaced. Right in January of 2007; and left in January of 2012. I am completely satisfied, and 9 years later with the first replacement have had no problems, nor with the 2012 surgery. I recommend Dr Archibald to anyone who speaks to me about having knee problems." – Anthony C.
