Brought my son for a look at a birthmark. Previous Dr wanted to remove it. I was relieved when I met Dr Johnston and his opinion was completely different. Yay!!! No surgery. Thank you for the peace of mind, and being patient with my Luke.

Without exception, this Practice, and Doctor Johnston in particular is the Gold Standard for Dermatological care. Whether you choose the Niceville Office or the Miramar Beach Office, you will find clean, attractive facilities, friendly and caring staff, and a knowledgeable, articulate and skilled physician with a keen focus on providing quality care. In 82 years, I have "tried the rest and found the best."
