J. T.

I am grateful that Dr. Jeremiah Johnson was the on-call trauma surgeon when I needed emergency surgery on a weekend. He is bright and compassionate. He is an analytical and innovative problem-solver. He is astute and attentive, nothing falls through the cracks. In addition, he has assembled an amazing support team. My recovery will take time and it’s comforting to know that they are there.
