  • “"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."”

  • “"Dr.Thomason has been my orthopaedic doctor for approx. ten yrs. I went to other orthopaedics before I was sent to him by my family doctor I am pleased with every treatment I have received. What I like most about him is that I can ask questions, knowing that he has others waiting, and he will make sure I understand all instructions he has given."”

  • “My experience has been very positive. I broke my ankle in 2 places and from my first visit I felt that Dr. Olson and the attending nurses were well qualified to help me. They have been very friendly, pleasant and accommodating. Dr. Olson always asks if I have questions or if there is anything else I need. All of my questions have been addressed quickly and with satisfaction. I feel that they truly care about my situation and are more than qualified to guide me through this. The front desk staff have been very pleasant and helpful also.”

  • “I had been suffering from a foot injury for two years. I had visited a podiatrist for this but found no relief. Dr. Olson discovered that a broken bone in my foot that had not healed correctly was the cause to my problems. I had surgery and was able to return to work two weeks later with the use of a knee scooter.”

  • “I was having pain in my elbow that was not getting any better so I pulled up your website to look at all the doctors that specialize in elbows. I have been seen by Dr. Johnson many times and I love him but knew my wait time to get an appointment would be long. So when I saw that Dr. Skeete had joined the team and only specialized in elbow, wrist and hands, I thought I would give her try. I knew with her being new my wait may not be as long. That is about to change because I just thought she was great. She is very personable, knowledgeable and clear at explaining what was going on with my elbow. I love the new office and the way the waiting rooms are separated by doctors. Keep up the good work.”

  • “I can't brag enough on how great Dr. Johnson has been to me. First he is an excellent doctor who is very very exceptional at his trade second he is a super nice friendly guy who anyone can have a conversation with. I had an injury and was very nervous about the serious surgery that I had to have. Dr. Johnson not only put my mind at ease he fixed me and I haven't had any problems at all. Excellent practice and physician I would recommend Dr. Johnson and this practice to anyone with orthopaedic needs. I owe so much to being fixed to Dr. Johnson and his skilled surgery, thank you to him and to the practice.”

  • “I had a torn rotator in my right shoulder and after Dr. Johnson repaired it, it has been great.The recovery was about 6 months but well worth it. I have now got problems with my left shoulder and am going to let Dr. Johnson fix this one as well. Dr. Johnson is very good and his appointments are very good, quick and friendly, I love this place.”

  • “I am new to the area and I was referred to Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center. It was a pleasure meeting the staff and Dr. Johnson. I have a problem with my left knee and after speaking with the doctor I decided to follow the three weeks of shots. I never had to wait long on any of my visits. I was taken care of promptly and efficiently and left the office feeling better that I walked in. The series of shots are working and hoping I can follow this treatment instead of having a knee replacement. I would recommend Dr. Johnson in a heartbeat.”
