Notable quotes from Dr. Johnson’s interview:

If someone told me when I was 17 I would have been a foot doctor, I would have laughed at them.

She wasn’t a military woman, but she had militant ways.

Every patient with a limb issue has their own subset of situations.
I can probably save every limb that walks through, but I can’t tell you how long it will take, or how much money it will cost. But I can get it done.
If something was to happen to me today, I would still be proud of the work that I have done.
