Dr. Johnson is a wonderful Dermatologist. His staff is so professional . My daughter and myself both have been patients since he opened his practice here in Panama City Beach . He has treated me for skin cancer and my daughter for teenage acne problems . He truly cares and puts extra into caring for his patients . The front staff is always smiling and so nice . I would highly recommend his practice . Also I’ve never waited longer than 15 minutes for any appointment . That in itself , as a business owner is amazing . He takes your time into consideration. His operation run completely professional . Yet him and his staff are as friendly as your own family . 5 STAR rating

Dr. Johnston and all of his staff are wonderful! They are all very knowledgable, helpful, honest, and friendly. They make me feel comfortable during uncomfortable procedures and I truly enjoy going to visit them. I wouldn't go to anyone else for my anti-aging procedures.
