Friendly, professional staff who take the time to listen to all your worries and concerns concerning your skin. Both the doctor and his staff walked me through with verbal instructions before my procedure which helped me relax. I would recommend this clinic any day.

I recieved more than adequate appointment reminders, which is good! the staff were professional and courteous and knowledgeable. The facilty clean and tidy. I was very worried about my issues when i arrived but thanks to Dr. Johnstone's calming approach and understandible diagnosis. I felt comfortable allowing him to treat me on the spot ! pun intented. I went to work after my appointment and before the day was done, i had recommended him to my own customer. if you have a dermatology issue definatley call here.
