Amazed at the service I received from you!! I had an appointment with “another” orthopedic practice set for 9 days and they called me the DAY before to tell me they now didn’t take my insurance (info I could have used EIGHT DAYS AGO!!) I endured the pain for 8 days! Then I called your practice and had an appointment in two hours!..here’s how it went…

I went to TOCA at 2222 E. Highland at 2pm … filled out paperwork and they said they’d get me right in..less than 5 minutes later I’m in the room..less than 3 minutes later Dr. is in..he say X-ray will be right in.. less than 30 seconds later I’m off to X’ray..10 minutes later I’m back in the room…3 minutes later & the Dr. is back in the room and explains no rips or tears just arthritis that I can help heal with anti-inflammatories and excercise…say they will be right in to drain my knee and give me a cortisone shot..less than 1 minute later the tech is there and less than 3 minutes later procedure is done and I have instructions…I ask if it’s OK to see the X-rays and the doctor says “Sure!” and explains everything and give me a quick biology lesson to boot! By MILES the most efficient Doctor visit I have had EVER! Amazing … I’m inviting them to St. Croix! THIS is how to run a practice!!!

DR. JOHNSEN AND HIS STAFF WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND AN AMAZING JOB EXPLAINING THE DETAILS OF MY SURGERY………BEFORE AND AFTER…..AND AS I CONTINUE TO RECOVER THEY CONTINUE TO REASSURE YOU THAT FOLLOWING DRS. ORDERS WILL HELP LEAD TO SUCCESSFUL RECOVERY…….I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO THE RECOVERY CHALLENGE……………THANK YOU FOR HANGING IN THERE WITH ME***

Dr.Johnsen did an amazing job on my surgery & making sure I recovered well after. I would recommend him to everyone. Best surgeon in town & he cares about you getting back to 100% again! Everyone in his office is really nice too. His PA was great! He did surgery on my Father-in-law’s arthritic foot years ago & he is doing much better since!

I had a previously failed surgery repaired with Dr. Steen Johnsen and PA Jared Susini and have to say not only was the surgery a success but so was finding TOCA!!! I will never have a surgery performed anywhere else. From first visit to last follow-up my entire experience was extraordinary to say the least. I was treated with the utmost respect and my situation was dealt with in a “personal to my particular problem” manner. TOCA is hands down the best orthopedic clinic in the valley and would recommend them to any one for any reason!!!

Shout out to Dr. Steen Johnsen for a great surgery that happened 2 weeks ago and a perfect incision. Could not ask for a better doctor!! I want to refer EVERYONE to Dr. Johnsen that has any foot or ankle problems. One of the most caring doctor’s I have seen. Thanks Johnsen!!
