5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Nipple Sparing Double Mastectomy W/ TE's & Reconstruction. Springfield, MA

EXCELLENT Surgeon & Staff! Not sure I'd have gone through with my major surgery if it were anyone else. Dr Johnson, Kristina, & Irene (along with the girls at the desk) have got to be the most welcoming women I've met in a Dr Office! Will continue seeing her for revisions/fat grafting/future exchanges. If you are looking for a wonderful outcome with a detailed and focused PS (Plastic Surgeon), she's who you should see. Had my exchange of Tissue Expanders to Implants TODAY (and though feeling pain and pain Meds aren't helping much, SHE & her PA are AMAZING!) even with the infection caused by a fluke thing 3 weeks after my Mastectomy, I STILL put my faith and trust in Dr Johnson & her staff. I honestly can put all of these lovely ladies on a pedestal and they're all so humble- to me, they're life savers & built me up back to a new life.

Double Mastectomy W/ Recon. Tissue Expanders - Springfield, MA

The staff are VERY friendly & courteous. Dr Johnson is nice, helpful & understands/explains emergent issues. She is quick to get you in if you're experiencing something abnormal after surgery. She's cautious and takes your healing seriously, which I was very thankful for. I'll be in her care until after my final switch from tissue expanders (which are only filled with a tiny amount from surgery: 60cc's) to implants (which she specializes ano highly knowledgable about the anatomical implants (the natural shaped "410's"- Natrelle brand, hard to find ANY dr who has high experience with these kinds of implants! They are highly cohesive gel and look more natural). My process has just begun on 9/23/14 rpm double mastectomy and I'll be with her for many months to come- due to seromas forming after drain was removed, and 5 days later, new drain was surgically placed, in which I developed cellulitis and landed myself a stay in the hospital for 7 days. I'm confident that she will give me excellent results afterwards. My scars are minimal and even with the complications (not her fault- I have systemic lupus & my body fights surgeries and new "objects" placed internally- I began to reject the expanders), I highly recommend Dr Johnson for surgeries.

Cellulitis - Massachusetts

I love my Dr and all the staff in her office! This serious complication is no ones fault! But I just want you all to go in with eyes wide. I had this pollyanna attitude even though I did yrs of research. Good luck to everyone!

Forehead Lipoma Removal - Springfield, MA

She worked on a freind of mine who had breat cancer and did a great job of recronstructing her after a bilateral matectomy. Lipoma is nothing in comparsion.
