Karsten Johnson, DO

Board Certified Dermatologist

I just saw Dr Johnson and had a great experience. I heard good things about this group and recently switched from the other group in town. He was very personable and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend going to see him or this office for any type of skin issues. Thanks, Dr Johnson! – Jimmy, via Yelp
