That was only because the staff took to long to check me in for my appointment. Otherwise, I usually only have to wait less than 30 minutes. He is a very professional Orthopedic doctor, I have been with him since 2013 when he did my first knee replacement.

The visit was good.But the follow up by his staff leaves you lost .They need to respond with compassion and promptly .No one expects people to jump but dont leave me a message about how busy you are. I am in healtcare also and will always be responsive ,informative and anticipate some of there concerns that patinet's may have.. So basically a system to f/u with patient's phone calls is needed. There needs to be dedicate phone line to his MOA (if one existed I did'nt get that #) ,the voice message should give info ,"like I'll return these calls before I leave office and dont tell me "how busy you are ".

I have seen Dr. Johnson for multiple injuries. I really liked him in the past. However, the past several visits, I have waited a very long time for my appointments and then he rushes me out in less than 2 minutes. You should also realize that if you see him at WHC, the hospital charges a significant hospital fee (That zocdoc won't let me list here), in addition to your co-pay. There was no warning from his office about that.

avoid the new mexico ave location unless you enjoy ornery front desk staff who are quick to tell you dr. johnson only rents space in the office and all problems must be the washington hospital center office's fault. rude and unhelpful, they act as if you are a nuisance and they resent even having to talk to you. horrendous customer service. repeatedly behind on schedule (this is the second time in a row i have arrived on time for my appointment only to hear that 1) the doctor has at least 3 patients ahead of you and 2) no, they cannot give you a sense of how long it can be. and they only share this information with you if you ask.

The office did not have my appointment. The desk person had never heard of ZocDoc. I finally convinced them to check with Dr. Johnson and he agree to take the appt. This took more than an extra hour to get it straightened out. Totally unacceptable. Not the Drs fault.

I would say for your average broken bone he is perfectly fine, but I was dealing with a more complex issue. He was fine but not incredibly insightful. His office was difficult to communicate with when I was dealing with insurance issues.
