On behalf of Dr. Brad Johnson and the entire staff at Oakdale Ear, Nose & Throat Clinic, we wish to extend our gratitude for the tremendous outpouring of care and concern for Dr. Johnson after he was mauled by two grizzly bears in the Montana wilderness in September 2018.

In a video made with his backpacking buddies for Plymouth Covenant Church, Dr. Johnson recounts the pain, trauma and fear of being eaten alive.
