The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Johnson.
“Dr. Chris Jonson and staff are wonderful, very knowledgeable and professional. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends.”
– Patricia D.
“Dr. Johnson was highly skilled and competent in his area of expertise. He was also very kind and compassionate and did not rush into surgery. He exhausted all other options before deciding that surgery was the only option to fix my right hand. The pain and numbness, as well as the tingling, which started in my hand had traveled up my arm to my shoulder and had become progressively worse over the past few years. I was no longer able to sleep and often dropped anything I held in my right hand. My left hand was also problematic but a single injection by Dr. Johnson had given the left hand relief. So far so good. Before Dr. Johnson operated on my right hand, he had my neck checked out to make sure the problem really was coming from the wrist. I went into surgery completely at ease that I was doing the right thing, and Dr. Johnson was going to put an end to my problem, and he sure did. He even called me , himself, the morning after surgery to check on me. Now what surgeon does that.? He really cares. My hand is back to normal, thank you Dr. Johnson for taking such good care of me and all your other patients. I will return if the left hand goes bad. The entire experience from beginning to end was pleasurable, the office staff are also kind, compassionate and qualified.”
– Cecelia H.
“Dr. Johnson saw my son immediately when I explained my son injured his thumb, possibly fracturing it. He got him in immediately and sure enough it was a fracture. I appreciated the promptness of his office staff because my son was eager to get back to basketball. My experience was nothing but satisfactory!”
– Patricia L.
“Every member of Dr. Johnson's team, including Dr. Johnson are wonderful! They made navigating my injury/pain easy by explaining every step and preparing me for the upcoming surgery. The process, start to finish was a breeze, from scheduling appointments to x-rays, and fittings for braces was simple and easy. I have surgery coming up, but know I am in the best hands with Dr. Johnson and his team.”
– Tara T.
“Dr. Johnson and his staff pride themselves on assisting their patients.”
– Lynda M.
“Very personable, helped me a great deal with my shoulder and neck pain, and I will not go anywhere else. Bedside manner is amazing especially when receiving sometimes painful injections. X rays on site, MRI recertification done asap, and follow up appointments are easy to obtain. I would recommend anyone to go to see Doctor Johnson.”

“I have seen several doctors at Professional Orthopaedic Associates and every experience has been excellent. Dr. Cohen did my neck surgery, and I was completely relaxed and comfortable with the surgery because he was so confident and caring. The operation was a huge success. I just saw Dr. Gesell and have my knee replacement scheduled for June. Both my daughter and I have seen Dr. Johnson, and we love him too. Trust them all to take care of my family’s orthopedic needs!!! Can’t wait for my new knee!!!”

“I originally went to Dr. Johnson after having surgery for tennis elbow. I wasn't happy with the way my surgeon was handling my post-operative therapy and felt I was not making much progress. Dr. Johnson was kind, caring, and took a more proactive approach, and I began seeing results right away. I have since been back to see him with several other types of joint pain and his care, combined with the physical therapy center there, have enabled me to continue my active lifestyle.”

Dr. Johnson was patient and available for all questions and supportive to our daughter during the whole process. I am a registered nurse and I can attest that the care our daughter received was phenomenal and best practice. I highly recommend Dr. Johnson and POA.”
