The Staff and Dr. Johnston are all very attentive, timely and informative. My personal experiences, ranging from minor concerns to more intensive treatments, are explained thoroughly and treated with great care and success. My family also uses Dr. Johnston; and he is reliable to recommend, if needed, addtional care teams.

Dr. Johnston is a life saver, I went to a dermatologist in Tampa in 2019 over a concern with a growth on my face and was told it wasn't anything, I had same concern when I saw Dr. Johnston and it turned out to be early stage of skin cancer. I can't thank him and his staff enough for caring about the patients concerns and actually doing something about it. Dr. Johnston and his staff are the best. Thank you. Arlene Breitbard

I would highly recommend advanced dermatology to anyone with skin concerns and or looking to enhance looks. Dr. J is the best around. I wouldn't trust my face or skin to any other doctor. His staff is awesome and friendly as well as very professional.
