Erik C. Johnson MD
Ankle, Elbow, Knee, Shoulder, and Sports Medicine
The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Johnson.
“Dr. Johnson had reviewed the medical information I provided before seeing me, ordered X-rays, referred me to PT to strengthen muscles around knee joint. He took the time to discuss my objectives and explain what he had seen in the X-ray and what was going on with my knee. Very pleasant person, knowledgeable, and I was very satisfied with our contact.”
– Doris M.
“Dr. Johnson listened to my three page list of concerns and issues and didn't try to make me feel like it was stupid. I respected him a ton and I trusted him. He helped me a lot! I am so thankful!!!”
– Ruth Z.
“Dr. Johnson was great. He met with me and covered my options for dealing with my knee pain. We elected surgery. He did a great job getting my surgery scheduled and performed to fit my schedule. The follow-ups went well and I feel great about the recovery to-date.”
– Ken T.
“My entire experience at Carolina Orthopaedic and Sports Medicine has been very pleasant. The staff is friendly and professional. The doctor was friendly and made me feel at ease. He explained everything to me so that I knew what to expect as to my surgery and recovery. I think this was the first experience at a doctors office to which I did not dread going.”
– Lynne B.
“Dr. Johnson was very personable and did not rush me when I had questions for him. More than anything, patients want to feel heard and not hurried when the doctor is visiting. I’ve visited the office on multiple occasions, and this is the first time I thought I had his sincere attention and time. Tell Dr. Johnson he’s excellent for making me feel comfortable and being attentive to me.”

“Historically nurses can be challenging patients, and I am no exception to that rule. My situation was challenging with a shoulder fracture that could not be fixed surgically due to a heart attack and stents which I then clotted the day after I was discharged from the hospital. So needless to say I was a challenge. Dr. Johnson is genuinely caring and concerned and truthful and I appreciate that. The support staff is also amazing, and the x-ray tech is wonderful. She is always so careful not to hurt me when she has to position me. I can’t say enough good things.”

“Dr. Johnson has always been outstanding with me from the very first visit with my knee issues to most recently with my rotator cuff repair. He never hesitates to reach out to me directly, something I have never experienced with any other doctor. When making a general clinic visit, he does not try to rush me out the door as most doctors do. He worked with me regarding my return to work for my employer, again not rushing but taking the time to fill out my needed paperwork. Again, something I had difficulty with in the past with other doctors. I will recommend Dr. Johnson to anybody.”
