Dr. Wayne A. Johnson:  My approach to treating patients

Dr Wayne Johnson“I believe that a knowledgeable patient can make the best decision about their orthopaedic care. That is why I take the extra time to listen to my patients and explain to them their treatment options–both surgical and non-surgical. Most of my patients never require surgical intervention. I utilize the state of the art medications and a skilled team of Physical and Occupational Therapists employing modalities and exercises with the goal of restoring patients back to their pre-injury levels. When Surgery is the best option for my patients, my goal is to use the least invasive and state of the art techniques to provide the best results possible. Please feel free to contact me anytime if you or your loved ones are in need of quality orthopaedic care with a personal touch. I try to take care of my patients the way that I would take care of my own family.”

Dr. Harris’ Care Philosophy

It is crucial to provide the highest possible quality of care to my patients with an approach that is tailored to their individual needs. This motivates me to “maintain” the highest level of training and clinical expertise. I draw on more than 25 years of experience in medicine to provide the kind of compassionate, high-quality medical care that I would want for my own family. My goal is to help my patients get back to living normal lives, with quality, as quickly as possible.
