Recently I was referred to the office of Dr. Ronald Johnston for a initial consult dermatology appointment. The entire experience was top notch. He has a very nice office and staff, they were all professional and above all friendly, very friendly and I really appreciated that aspect immensely. The receptionist was outstanding and assisted me with paperwork and procedures that I was unfamiliar with. She went out of her way to assist me in anything I needed, and in my opinion she is an absolutely lovely human being inside and out. I have never been so relieved, comfortable, and pleased to be in ANY medical establishment in my life, and I am a senior so I have had a lot of experience in military, civilian, and foreign medical facilities. Unlike many dermatologist Dr. Johnston doesn't drag out things and set up one appt. after another, he gets down to business and gets the work done, while answering any questions you may have and he explains what is a big issue as well as what is a none issue. His in office help is outstanding and "super friendly" which was very nice and memorable to say the least. Also, I was stunned to get biopsy results and a call from his office in just short of a week. This is simply unheard of in my experience so obviously the labs he works with are very expeditious! I am not a big "reviewer", nor am I a critical or picky person, and I am used to getting average service from most business across the spectrum; such is life. In this instance, my initial visit was actually enjoyable to the point that I was stunned. I truly felt that way and still do. His office has easy access, good parking, and is quite interesting in its design. His staff is fantastic, his skill and caring is stellar.... what else can I say but BRAVO!!! I actually look forward to my next appointment, and I hate appointments. The women assisting him that day in procedures was absolutely wonderful, super friendly. Just wonderful really which had a calming effect on me, she was so nice, I just wanted to thank her and give her a big hug. The combination of Dr. Johnstons' skill, knowledge, and WONDERFUL staff is a winner. If you think this gushing review is fake or fabricated, well... so would I. However it is not, I can assure you. In fact, I have enjoyed typing my thoughts up to pass on. I would HIGHLY recommend this doctor and facility to anyone in need of their special services, and I wish to extend a huge thank you to Dr. Johnston and his fantastic staff.... Great people doing a Great job! Thanks so much, Robert H. Duren III
