Tech called my name and I got up. Then she ignored me to talk to someone else. I sat down. She came out again and called my name again and offered no explanation for the false start. Thoughtless.

My visits are always painless and scar free thanks to Dr Johnston who always makes me comfortable about any procedures. I know I am in good hands when I go in for a visit.

Dr. Johnston is very skilled with the details of all my skin care needs for psoriasis control, skin cancer removal, and cosmetic injections. He always has an upbeat and congenial manner. I never have to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes in the waiting room and in the exam room. He explains every condition, medication, and procedure clearly and completely. Appointment scheduling is easy and sometimes even the same day.

I was disappointed to discover that your office does not accept Alphaeon Credit even though it is listed on your website. This is one of the reasons I came here was that I could pay with Alphaeon. Upon check out, I was told that only the Mobile office uses it but they would call and see if they could use their log in info and would let me know. I have not received I call back either way.
