we would like to thank you very much for your firm response and life changing conversation with my wife and I....I cannot thank you enough for having such a direct and humanely approach to our situation...We cannot express enough how grateful we are to you and your staff for the way that we were treated, and now know first hand what makes you and your staff, Number One. God Bless You."
Dr. Johnston, Melissa and Misty-I just wanted to thank you all for making my appointment a positive experience. I was a little nervous coming in, but you soon put me to ease with your friendly attitude and show of genuine care. You make a great team! Thank you for helping me make the best choices for me and feeling good about it..
Thank you for your professionalism in your field. I am certainly very happy that you are the one cutting on me. You have the best bedside manner of any doctor that I have ever met. You are truly the best doctor that I know. I am proud to know you and I thank you for having me as a patient and friend.
I also thank you for the ride home today. It was certainly above and beyond the call of being a doctor. It shows me that you care.
"Orlando Health continues to have the very best plastic surgeon. I hope I never need plastic surgery, but if I do, I want Dr. Dean Johnston."
"Dean, I will never forget and will always appreciate what your deft hands did for Margaret. Thank you."
Wow! I was so impressed with the time that Dr. Johnston took with me to make sure I understood exactly what I was asking to have done. He made me and my husband feel so comfortable...glad I came to your office
Dear Kathy: Thank you very much for everything. Your husband has given me a new body. I not only do prefer the way I look now I also prefer the way I feel.
The brochures are professional & helpful. I chose Dr. Johnston for the friendliness & helpfulness of staff.
I had consults with other doctors, but I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Johnston and his experience and involvement. The other doctors spent maybe 5 mins on the consult and referred my questions to a staff member. I felt like when I left my consult I had picked out a surgeon and gained a friend. I recommend Dr. Johnston to my friends and relatives considering plastic surgery, every chance I get.
Dear Dean and Kathy, Thank you for taking such good care of me. I appreciate that you don't rush me.....
I'm a practicing physician assistant in the field of medical dermatology. The practice I work for is not involved in cosmetic dermatology. That is why after doing extensive research, I selected Dr. Dean Johnston to perform FX resurfacing and LED rejuvenation on my face. The results are amazing and so is his staff. How likely would I recommend the services of Dr. Dean Johnston to a friend? Very Likely!!!
I choose Dr. Johnston because my friend referred me, I feel that referrals are better than any on line advertisement. My results are awesome, Dr. Johnston has a fantastic practice, very easy and informative...I love my 'new boobies!'
I like the improvements from my laser resurfacing treatment. I hope your staff will use my photos to help other clients with acne scars to make a decision to have the procedure and to be able to show my before and after comparisons. I would be glad to recommend your office to my friends and relatives.
I chose Dr. Johnston because I saw what a great job was done on another client that had gotten surgery. So I was confident that Dr. Johnston was who I wanted to do my surgery. I absolutely love my implants they look amazing! I think that the service was optimal. I had a great experience. Thank you so much!
I chose Dr. Johnston because he was much more professional and I like him so much better! My surgical results is wonderful and I'm excited to see more tightening in my neck area.
I can't say enough how great you and your staff are. You helped me prepare mentally before the surgery and were caring, compassionate, yet gave the right amount of tough LOVE after.
Although I may complain of a pain here and there, I no doubt am happy with my outcome and most of all my decision to choose you as my doctor.
I did consider another Plastic surgery office, however, after meeting Dr. Johnston and finding him to be a very pleasant, warm, and comforting doctor, I felt a connection with him. I was very pleased to know that his office really cared about me following my surgery and my progress. I love my results, Dr. Johnston is wonderful!! Everything went so well and was done right. I just wish that it was recorded so that I can play back my recovery to show people that it was not so bad. I love you guys, Thanks again for everything!
Dr. Johnston and his staff are truly kind and caring people. They made me fee comfortable from my very 1st visit; and all the way through the whole procedure. I have thought about doing this (ear pinning-Otoplasty)for quite a few years, but never felt a good "reason" to justify going through with it. Dr. Johnston and his staff gave me the reassurance that I needed to help me make my decision. I am extremely happy with the outcome and now glad that I did wait for the right doctor.
I find it difficult to express how very grateful I am for not only your tremendous skill, but also the wonderful care that I have been given before and after the procedures. It gives me great pleasure to recommend you to anyone who asks why I look so different. Kathy and your girls are a great credit to you and all help to make yours the best practice I have ever visited. Thank you.
Thank you all for being so wonderful through my pre-op and post-op. You are a fabulous team and Dr. J did a great job! Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas Hope it is full of Love, Joy, & Laughter, See you next year
Why did you choose Dr. Johnston? When I went in for my consultation I felt comfortable with Dr. Johnston. Plus I had a friend that just went through surgery with him and she had great results...How do you feel about your results? Very, Very, Very Happy with my results, I recommend Dr. Johnston to all my friends that are Moms for their Tummy Tuck needs.
I Choose Dr. Johnston as he came highly recommended to me and his office was close to my home. I had a great experience with his office, his staff are great, and I loved Kathy.
Just wanted to give you a little feedback.....Last week I went for my doctors appointment (for my broken leg) and it was the first time since I went to Dr. Johnston that my friends at the center where I used to work at have seen me. And the response I got made me walk away saying "I love Dr. Johnston" All I heard was "you look so young" I am really happy with the results and just wanted to give you a little feedback on how I feel about the procedures, and the responses I've gotten to it.
Dear Kathy & Dr. Johnston: plus all your office staff-Thanks for such great care I received. You made a "Bad situation" turn out to be good. I am so thank full for my full recovery. Wishing each of you a Merry Christmas and a great 2011.
I am very thankful that I was recommended to your facility. I appreciate all of the individual attention and time that was given to me. Everyone is very nice and caring. I feel that i was thoroughly taken care of. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Dr. Johnston and his staff! I feel great with my results.
I have been a patient with Dr. Johnston for several years...the staff is always caring and polite; the office is very lovely, relaxing and not rushed. Dr. Johnston is always so kind and patient and takes the time to explain and answer my questions--Great Team
...I did my research, I found that Dr. Johnston is the doctor's doctor. My GYN and another Plastic Surgeon recommended me to Dr. Johnston, he was very professional, and seemed to more experienced then the other Plastic Surgeons I had interviewed.
I feel that I have an an excellent result from my procedure with Dr. Johnston, I would do it again! Kathy went the extra mile to ensure that I was well informed and I am greatly appreciative, as things worked out beautifully for me.
I decided to to with Dr. Johnston office because the doctor and staff made me feel comfortable and they treated me as if I were their only patient. I have shared my experience with many people who are considering Plastic Surgery...I very much liked the informative EMMI tutorial in advance of my procedure which answered many questions of elective surgery.
...It has been an excellent experience all around. I only have positive things to say about all aspects of the process-from the preoperative to follow up. Dr. Johnston is obviously a competent and caring surgeon and it is reflected in the behavior of his entire staff.
After meeting with Dr. Johnston I cancelled my other appointments, as I would not consider going any where else. I had an amazing experience thanks to everyone involved. I can't believe that others after meeting you wouldn't walk away from your services and stuff feeling really good about the office, staff and themselves?!
P.S. Everyone at the hospital LOVES Dr. Johnston.
True Story...recently, I was getting dressed one evening to attend a semi-formal social event. I was having a great hair day, and my make-up went on so nicely that day. My slinky cocktail dress fit me just fine. I was early, so I had a few minutes to linger in front of my full length mirror as I was doing last minute checks. Suddenly, I just had to stop and pause a moment! I felt so beautiful! Then, with a twinkle in my eye and under the breathe of my great big smile I said, "Thank you, Dr. J."
I met Dr. Dean Johnston in the ORMC emergency room July, 1990. He happened to be the Plastic Surgeon on call for incoming trauma victims. He performed emergency plastic surgery on my father, who had just had a skill saw accident to his face and skull that completely shredded one whole side of his face. Dr. J's personal compassionate nature eased the traumatic moments at hand for my mother and me. Little did I know back then that my father had the most skilled plastic surgeon in all Central Florida.
Since then and over the years, Dr. J has earned my trust and respect throughout the three surgeries that I underwent in his care. When the moments arrived that I had to make medical decisions for myself, I had always followed his expert advice and foresight, for his confident and professional nature eased me into surgical situations that eventually became the best results ever for me. His leadership and knowledge had always proven time and time again to be the best direction for me. I would trust Dr. Johnston with my life. He once told me, "The enemy to beauty is perfection." I have never forgotten those practical and insightful words, and as I recall from time to time, I envision those words as candidly honest and trusted advice coming forth from a very wise and most experienced plastic surgeon.
I shall always admire his professionalism, his kind and gentle personality, his compassionate bedside manner, but most of all his very talented and gifted surgical hands. I am always very thankful and filled with appreciation for everything he does for me above and beyond the call of duty, because that's just the way he is.
Indeed, Dr. J is blessed with the gift of beauty in the palms of his hands. Dr. Johnston will always by my "Dr. Beauty" for a lifetime of self-esteem, self-preservation, and self-awareness that I can look and feel the best that I can for my age...at any age.
Thank you Dr. Johnston and Kathy for everything! I mean everything!! You two are the best and I wish you continued success and prosperity.
.....Did you consider other plastic surgeons for your procedure? Yes, but I choose Dr. Johnston for several reasons. I was impressed with the photographs of previous patients, impressed with the surgeons skills, and very comfortable with his entire staff. I also liked the fact that he gave me the option of location for surgeon to be done. As a physician myself, my concern was also for the skills of the anesthesiologists. I am happy and thrilled with my results, and thank you all for the outstanding care...
All aspects of Dr. Johnston's office impressed me from the very first minute I walked in the door. Everyone made me feel like I was the most important patient in the world. You are an awesome team!
During my consultation I especially appreciated that Dr. Johnston took time to talk me out of immediate surgery and his constant education about what I could expect to happen in the future. I like knowing answers and he answered questions that did not even ask yet!
I interviewed 3 other Plastic Surgeons before deciding to choose Dr. Johnston. Dr. Johnston was head & shoulders above them. I wanted a surgeon who was professional, knowledgeable, and had a great personality. The office staff also played a role in my decision. I am extremely happy with my decision and my results!
..It has been an excellent experience all around. I only have positive things to say about all aspects of the process, from pre-op to follow-up. Dr. Johnston is obviously a competent and caring surgeon and it is reflected in the behavior of his entire staff!
My surgeon recommended that I see Dr. Johnston. Originally I was going to see and consult with other Plastic Surgeons, but after meeting Dr. Johnston I was so impressed with Dr. Johnston, I did not feel that a second consult was necessary! Dr. Johnston answered all our (my husband was very involved) questions took time to teach and explain everything to us. He and his staff did not rush us , made us feel very comfortable and did not make us feel like we were a bother to him. I am very pleased with my results from my procedures and highly recommend him to all my family and friends. I only wish that Dr. Johnston, Kathy and all the staff, could meet all my medical needs. Dr. Johnston is one in a billion!
Why did you choose Dr. Johnston? I wanted the best, I had a difficult problem to fix and Dr. Johnston came highly recommended by my doctor, and my experience was nothing short then great. His staff and Kathy were wonderful caring people. Thanks!
I loved the emails that I received, they were very inviting and informative, yet very professional. I am so glad my friend recommended me to Dr. Johnston.
It was very important to me that Dr. Johnston was a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, and the other important things was that he participated with Cosmetassure....the cosmetic insurance coverage company. I very much appreciated all the attention and follow up care I received following my Facelift!
.....I am thrilled with my results, an absolutely wonderful experience with Dr. Johnston. As a physician myself, I have worked with many Surgeons, I have the utmost respect for Dr. Johnston and the quality of his work.
I can't thank-you all enough for your kindness and patience, I'm a happier person now and I owe that to all of you.
How do you feel about your results? I Love it! Dr. Johnston you have changed my life. I feel great about myself, I love my new look and my husband loves me even more. Thanks
I wanted to share with you some highlights of my experience with your office:
* Very professional and aesthetically pleasing office
* Friendliness of staff, Reputation & warm personality of Dr. Johnston is why I did not consider any other office
* I felt comfortable calling with the smallest question
* I love my eyes now and recommend your office to my friends or relatives considering Plastic Surgery
* Dr. Johnston, you and your staff are awesome!!!
I just wanted to thank you for your expertise on making me look 10 years younger, no more caved in cheeks, saggy jouls and those deep nasal lines. You have done a great job! I have full trust in you to do a good job. Your office is wonderfully helpful and comfortable. It is a pleasure coming to your office and treated with happy helpful people. I love my eyes now!
Hi Kathy! I cannot believe it has been a year since I have seen everyone at Dr. Johnston's office! First, thank you so much for the birthday card. It was such a pleasant surprise. Quite frankly, the older I get the more I tend to try and ignore my birthday but there is still something quite special about receiving birthday wishes that makes one feel like a kid again. So thank you again for the smile that you put on my face!
A year after my procedure, I remain entirly thrilled with the results. I truly wish that I was able to have had the procedure sooner, as is has really improved the way I feel about myself. I feel exude more confidence and now both in social and professional setting; and I really enjoy the way that I look in clothes!! :)
I absolutely than you, Dr. Johnston and the office staff-especially Elizabeth and Vicki for assisting me and being so kind and thoughtful throughout the entire process. It is truly because of how comfortable I felt upon my consultation and subsequent contacts that I was able to continue on with the process that has has so much of a impact on my current sense of well-being.
I highly recommend your office to my friends and request that I remain on your mailing list for my future needs.
And again, the you for the birthday wishes!
Thank you so much for your care and support during my recent breast augmentation. Your office is wonderful! I had a breast augmentation (years ago) and was unhappy with the results. In addition, I was not pleased with the overall experience. Therefore, I was somewhat apprehensive about undergoing another procedure. After meeting with Dr. Johnston and staff, I was comfortable to proceed. Dr. Johnston spent a considerable amount of time with my husband and I explaining in detail the entire process. Kathy was very patient in assisting me with the appropriate sizing. After the procedure I received excellent care. My surgery was definitely a success and I am very happy with the results! For anyone that is considering plastic surgery, I would strongly encourage them o go visit your office. I am personally glad that I made that choice! Thank you again for everything...you all have been a blessing throughout the entire process!
To Dr. Johnston, Kathy and your office...Just wanted to send you a small token of our appreciation for all the help and support we have received during this process. We've had a wonderful experience and are truly grateful for all the time and care that you have put into making it such a smooth and stress free process.
...I would like to say Thank-you...thank-you...and thank-you to you, Dr. Johnston and all of your staff at your office for the great services, attention to detail, and professionalism. My breast augmentation surgery has surpassed all of my expectations thanks to you all.
We both wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you.
Thank you for being so kind.
Thank you for explaining the procedure in layman's terms.
Thank you for your bedside manners.
Thank you for the work that you do.
Thank you for being our one to call on for references.
Thank you for being our friend.
in other words: "Thank you for being you!"
I would like to thank you for the outstanding surgery that you performed on my eyes. I'm so pleased with the end result and very grateful that I asked you to perform this operation.
Everyone in the office showed interest in me as a patient. I felt comfortable with Dr. Johnston, as he informed me of all the good and bad of the procedure as compared to other surgeons that I talked with. I felt that he had my best interest at heart. The best part was Dr. Johnston seeing me in the pre-op and asking me once last time about the size that I wanted...I was so nervous, he put me to ease.
How do you feel about your surgical results? ...EXACTLY, what I wanted...Overall a great experience. Office visits were very pleasant and without excessive waiting. Everyone was very discrete and made the process very comfortable. If I ever consider another procedure, large or small, your office will be the first place I go!
...I love 'em....they are perfect...Best investment that I have made.....I would recommend all my friends to come and see you for their Plastic Surgery needs, especially Breast Augmentation! Thank you Dr. Johnston!
...I would like to thank all for a very positive experience from beginning to the end. I feel comfortable recommending Dr. Johnston to friends....I love my improved appearance and resulting self-confidence. Thank you again!
I have a suggestion for Dr. Johnston, I think that we should design a new Super Hero Doc Johnston action figure-complete with his cool looking hat he wears in surgery!
...what I liked best was the personal attention that I received in addition to the doctors credentials and his background...all aspects of Dr. Johnston's office impressed me from the very first moment I walked into the door. Everyone made me feel like I was the most important patient in the world. You are an awesome team!
I am a long patient of Dr. Johnston and have had several procedures performed. I originally choose him because of his reputation...I kept coming back because of his great results, and the comfortable feeling I get coming to his office. The staff is always polite, caring and the office is warm and inviting....
I choose Dr. Johnston because of my General Surgeon recommendation. I knew after my first visit that I made the right choice. Dr. Johnston and his staff were very thorough in their explanations and explained every detail with me and my husband, and we were not rushed. Every one was so caring and kind
Thank you for such attentive care during my procedures. I was so worried about this but your entire office made me feel so comfortable with all the advance calls and education, I knew that I would be in good hands. I now know just how talented Dr. Johnston is and I will certainly be sending him many of my friends to your office....Thanks you again...
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for a wonderful job on my surgery. From the first consult, all the way to after surgery checks, the office has been on time and took time with me. You explained all procedures. I immediately felt at ease with the entire staff. Everyone from the front office to the back staff greeted me with a smile and answered any questions that I had. You treated me as a person not as a number, listened and advised me. I love my breast augmentation, eyelift and mini tummy tuck. Though I exercise a lot, 4 babies took its toll on my body. Kathy you were such a great help sizing me as I feared I would be too large or too small. I finally feel like I have a balanced body and the breast size is perfect, yet sexy for my small frame. The skin that I couldn't tighten on my tummy is gone, and referring me to an eye doctor shows my lids were medically necessary. You handled my insurance and hospital admittance all for me. Dr. Johnston you really are an artist as well as a doctor and your bedside manor is wonderful. I am a health professional myself and really appreciate your timely professional office. i would recommend you to any of my patients. thank you for making this women feel like a women again.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great care I received before and after my surgery. Maybe my case was a little different than some. I was intimidated about the procedure that I had to undergo, to remove a growth from behind my skull. Five minutes after meeting you for the first time, I felt at ease about the procedure. You spoke to me as if we were neighbors. You seemed to understand how important the surgery was to me and took the time to explain to me what you had to do, and how you were going to do it in a way that I could understand making it sound as simple as putting a model car together. Day of surgery I showed up at ORMC as scheduled, everything ran like clock work. The morning after surgery was a great day. While there was some discomfort from the surgery, it was minimal and far less painful than the headaches I had been dealing with for seven years. It had surprised me that you replaced part of my forehead and how little discomfort there was. To me the itching of the stitches was more bothersome than any pain I felt.
This comes as a thank you with all my heart to Dr. johnston, who is a very dedicated physician. As you are aware, Dr. johnston did not treat me for the Active and Deep FX Laser, as I was treated elsewhere. Although the care and concern at that facility was genuine, healing was not forthcoming nor was the expertise to remedy the situation. I wanted an second opinion..It was very difficult to find a physician with this particular laser experience or a physician who would see me to give advise to another physician patient...Thank goodness, Dr. Johnston agreed to see me. He literally saved my face and neck area. His knowledge was apparent as he immediately knew what the problem was and how to correct it! Listening to his advice, the second day home I already felt relief. Dr. Johnston took the time to answer all my concerns and offered to follow up in two weeks. At that visit, Dr. Johnston explained because of the cream prescribed early on, there are some cycles to the healing that still have to cycle out. However, because of Dr. Johnston's advice and brilliance my face is visibly 1000% better ...There are no words that can fully express my appreciate for all that you have done for me. Thank you Dr. Johnston for taking care of me and fixing me. I highly recommend Dr. Dean Johnston, he is a caring expert,a down to earth man, simply a remarkable doctor. And Kathy, may I add the staff is also friendly, efficient and considerate. Thank you too for all your assistance.
...I just wanted to thank you and Dr. Johnston for the wonderful, individual attention that i received from both of you. The surgery was not something that I took lightly, but I felt that you both took the time to explain everything in great detail to allow me to make an informed decision that was comfortable with. Even the small details like the good bag before hand with the herbal supplements and the surgical soap made me feel as though you both were taking even the smallest details into account to provide me with a speedy, safe recovery. I appreciate everything that you did for me. I have put my husband on notice to start saving for a tummy tuck next summer!
Thank you so much for the beautiful and natural looking results of my breast augmentation. For years, I wanted to go through with this procedure but held back thinking I was being too vain or focusing on the wrong aspects of self worth. I was wrong to wait...since my surgery, my body is more balanced, my clothes fit better and I feel amazing! Another important factor was making the right choice in terms of size. Kathy did a wonderful job of helping me choose a size which was both sexy and appropriate for my body type. I do wish you continued success with your practice. Your professional and caring ways meant so much to me.
For many years, I have been so bothered by my flabby tummy and the increase fold of flab on my back. although I have always worked out and tried to eat properly, there seemed to never be a change in my tummy, even when i lost weight. I always said, "one day I am getting a Tummy Tuck." Well, as you know,m that day came. It has been 2 weeks since Dr. Johnston performed the surgery and I feel and look great! I have been faced with a few big decisions to make in my life and elective plastic surgery was one of them. I can honestly say It has been on of the best decisions I have ever made. I work in Advertising and there are many Plastic Surgeons who are customers in my territory, but my friend recommended Dr. Johnston in Orlando/Lake Mary. Since I live 2 hours North of Orlando, I was uncertain about traveling. Once I met Dr. Johnston and his staff, I decided that I wanted him to perform the surgery. My husband and I went to Orlando the night before the surgery so that he could meet the Doctor. Dr. Johnston explained the process of surgery, recovery very thoroughly and offered us to ask questions.
We arrived at the hospital the next morning. Surgery was scheduled for 10 am. Everything was so prompt and exact it truly made me feel as if I received special treatment. We decided not to spend the night in the hospital and returned to our hotel. We saw Dr. Johnston the next morning. He realized that I needed a larger girdle because of the swelling and he offered a staff member to bring a girdle from the Lake Mary office which was 20 minutes away. My surgery was on Wednesday, the following Monday, the sutures and drainage tubes were removed. I was afraid, but he made it as comfortable as possible and again I felt as if I was his only patient.
I want to thank Dr. Johnston, Kathy and staff for the comfort you have given, the professionalism I experienced and the care you have provided and the follow up. You have all made the pre-op process easy and you were exceedingly prompt with providing the paperwork my husband needed to take time off to care for me. The day of the surgery came and I was not nervous because Dr. Johnston came in humming a tune.. That made me feel so re-assured that he is not nervous or uptight, so why should I be. He is so caring and he makes you feel like your his only patient. He is truly a great example of the meaning of "Doctor". I will and have recommended Dr. Dean Johnston to anyone who mentions Plastic Surgery to me or to anyone who I have shared my experience with.
Thank you all for everything you have done. I feel like a new and improved person inside and out!
As a young girl growing up, I remember always being unhappy wit my thigh/hip area. Even though I have never been overweight, I was always one size larger on the bottom then the top. Shopping for pants was always difficult and I was forced to stick with certain styles. Straight skirts and pants without tucks were not in my closet. Until about age 54, I never really considered having Liposuction. It was just sort of a dream for me. But when a close friend had a breast augmentation, it inspired me to check into liposuction.
Dr. Johnston was the 2nd doctor that I consulted with about my possible surgery. From the very beginning, I liked Dr. Johnston. In this day and age of our fast paced lives, I did not think that there was a doctor in this world who would give such personal one-on-one attention to his patients. But, Dr. Johnston made me feel as if I was the only patient in the world and that he personally cared enough to find out where I was at in the process of elective surgery and what I expected my outcome to be. I so appreciated his kindness, individual attention, and willingness to answer all of my questions.
I found that choosing to have elective cosmetic surgery was difficult for me. Due to Dr. Johnston's patient attitude and the encouragement that I received from his staff, especially his wife, Kathy, those feelings were alleviated for me. they truly walked through the experience with me.
The most exciting part was just following the surgery, when my husband helped me out of the bed to go home and we both looked down at my new body. I said, "oh my goodness, my saddlebags are gone!" That was the best feeling. At 3 months, I finally went shopping for new clothes and had the most wonderful shopping trip of my life. thank you Dr. Johnston!
...Thank-you for making my surgery a pleasant experience. You are all awesome! Every visit, I like you guys more and more. Keep up the great work! It really makes a difference to have doctors and staff who genuinely care about their patient's. Thanks again!....
Thank you so much for your care and support during my recent breast augmentation. Your office is wonderful! I had a breast augmentation (years ago) and was unhappy with the results. In addition, I was not pleased with the overall experience. Therefore, I was somewhat apprehensive about undergoing another procedure. After meeting with Dr. Johnston and staff, I was comfortable to proceed. Dr. Johnston spend a considerable amount of time with my husband and I explaining in detail the entire process. Kathy and Cheryl were very patient in assisting me with the appropriate sizing. After the procedure, I received excellent care. My surgery was definitely a success and I am very happy with the results! For anyone that is considering plastic surgery, I would strongly encourage them to go visit with your office. I am personally glad I made that choice. Thank you again for everything...you all have been a blessing throughout the entire process.
......Thank-you so much for your care and concern in my recent surgery. You instill a great deal of confidence in your patients with your thoughtful explanation, to say nothing of your many years of practice. We are indeed fortunate in Central Florida to have such distinguished surgeon in our midst......
I have been very pleased with the results of my tummy tuck and breast lift. As with many women, I had thought about doing this for years! I had stretched and saggy skin from having twins, plus a large vertical c-section scar on my abdomen. The surgery really turned back the clock 30 years for my body! For the first time ever, I have been able to go braless. I went down one pant size with the tummy tuck. My body image has improved. I am much less self conscious and I am finally able to feel comfortable dressing in cloths that show off my new 59 year-old body. Dr. Johnston and his staff have been superb, like a kind and caring family. I would be happy to talk with any potential patients.
Thank you so much for your patience and care during the most challenging year of my life.The results of surgery were nothing short of miraculous. To see the final results and to be back in full swing after only a few months is truly amazing! My heartfelt thanks to you and your entire staff!
Having just turned 50, being a national caliber Master's swimmer and a mother of one, I wanted to give myself a breast augmentation for my birthday present. I visited and met with several doctor's in the Orlando area. I then made my final appointment with Dr. Johnston. On top of being impressed with him, and his staff, we immediately connected on a personal level as well. It turns-out that Dr. Dean Johnston has an extensive swimming background as well!!
He recommeded a procedure that would enable me to get back in the water as quickly as possible and keep my level of fitness. We bonded even more.
Kathy, Dr. Johnston's nurse (and wife) took the time to meet with the implant representative and discuss my situation. They sat down and reviewed my measurements and figured out the absolute most perfect implant size for my active lifestyle and body type!
I am so happy, I wished that I had down this years ago.
Thank you so much dr. Johnston and Kathy!
I wanted to let you know that my breast augmentation experience, from the beginning to current, has been great. Everyone has been so helpful, warm, caring, sincere, open and honest. In addition to meeting & exceeding my needs, you were attentive to my husband's concerns/questons. He is very appreciative of being included in the process, as it gave him a higher comfort level.
Given my unique situation (previously radiated breast), I want to say a heartfelt thank-you for not just immediately saying "No Way/Not Possible", like another Plastic Surgeon had. At my first appointment, you took the time to have a very frank and open dialoge about the risks/concerns. You took the time to learn how important this was to me and subsequently went above and beyond to get the most current informaton on medical concerns specific to my situation. You made sure that I had all the information posible so that I could make an informed decision. Dr. Johnston, you took the time to make sure that my expectations were well in-line with the expected outcomes. I felt fully supported throughout the process and I just can't thank you and your team enough!
Dr. Johnston, first of all, I wanted to thank-you for your outstanding care of my friend, when he was bit by a dog on his face. The work that you did was phenomenal and the care he received afterwards was absolutely the best, far more than we had hoped to receive...he has healed better than we dreamed..his scars are hardly noticeable..... Thank you for your dedication to his well-being.
Dear Dr. Johnston: I hope that you and Kathy are doing well, Thank you for taking such good care of my wife. You two people are awesome and a great surgeon. Again, thank-you
On July 3rd of 2001, my life changed forever. Doctors had to perform a mastectomy on my right breast. I was left to cope with fear of cancer and the way it had left me. There are no other words for it but to say that I was deformed and left feeling less than a woman. My weight and age had made my left breast over-sized and hanging to the middle of my abdomen. The day I was waiting to leave for home after my surgery, Doctor Johnston stopped to say hello and told me to come and see him after my chemotherapy. More than a year later, feeling depressed, over weight, and not complete, I walked into his office. He, along with his wife and staff of the most kind and caring people, began to rebuild my life. He not only gave me back my femininity and completed my body; he gave me back my life. Through his encouragement and tough love talks I enrolled into college and obtained a bachelor degree in criminal law. I now work for Homeland Security and I have lost over 25 pounds. I smile now and I am out there life to my fullest. Words could never say what he has done for me, and I thank him, his wife, and staff with all my heart.
Hi! I expect you have heard nurses are the worst critics of doctors; well, I've been a nurse since 1977 and I am happy to report Dr. Johnston is a great doctor. I had breast augmentation done October 2002 and was pleased with all phases of my care by Dr. Johnston. I traveled 180 miles to have Dr. Johnston take care of me and it was worth every mile. He has chosen excellent health care facilities for his patients' surgeries and is personally concerned about providing the best outcome for each individual. At 52, I felt I was too old to consider breast augmentation but my daughter convinced me to see Dr. Johnston. Sometimes you can learn from your kids, she was right!!! The results have been fun and clothes fit better. Thank you, Dr Johnston!
I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience with you in the hopes that it will help others who are seeking out the right doctor to perform their breast augmentation.
I spent over a year researching the procedure, as well as interviewing doctors. The research paid off because I feel like I found the best doctor (and the best doctor's wife and nurse!!) In Florida (and the US for that matter) to perform my procedure.
Dr. Johnston, your experience and expertise in performing this procedure (breast aug via armpit incision) is unmatched. You and your staff spent all the time I needed in getting me educated about the procedure and you added to my comfort level by explaining exactly how you personally would perform the procedure. You have the perfect blend of a highly skilled surgeon as well as a very kind and caring person.
And Kathy, you are a true gem. You were so very gracious in answering all of my questions and working with me to determine the perfect size breast for my body. I so appreciate you working with me on several occasions and making me completely comfortable with my decision.
Needless to say, I could not be happier with my results. I am a mother of two and in my 40s. My breasts went from being an A-cup, deflated and drooping to a C-cup that are full and round and just very very nice in appearance. By going through the armpit there is no scar on my breast, which I love. I am also very pleased with the symmetry, and very pleased that after a few months they became very soft and natural looking in appearance. Also, my recovery went very well. After having the surgery on a Wednesday morning I was able to go out with family on Friday night. I was extremely happy with the entire procedure in every respect and I thank you both so very much. I am so very grateful to you both!
Thanks for helping me achive my potential.
Thank you for yor skill, compassion and superb bedside manner. Your ability to relate to our child and her family (us) is extraordinary.We appreciate everything you have done.
We are very thankful to still have our mother with us today. We are also thankful that she had you treating her. You are a true GEM to the Physician World! Thank you
First let me thank you for the thoughtful gift of flowers I received today. My entire experience with you and you staff, especially Lisa & Melissa, has been wonderful. You & your team made me feel "OK" about myself and actually very happy I decided to do this for me. Thanks for everything you have done for me!
I can't thank you enough for how wonderful you and your staff has been during the time of my surgery. I can already see results and I am sure everything will turn out great! Thanks again for everything, you are all wonderful and I couldn't have asked for any better!
