This was my second visit to Dr. Gurgen's office in Leesburg. I found him and his staff to be very friendly and efficient as well as practicing safety protocols which instilled confidence. They explained the treatment plan in such a way that all questions were answered and in a way with which I felt comfortable. A patient can't ask for more than that.

Doctor Gurgen and his brother Michael are fantastic in providing all the Dermatology Care you could possibly need. The entire staff are very professional and make you feel welcomed. Last year I had a spot on my leg, that to my untrained eye did not look like anything to worry about. During my office visit for a check-up, Michael did not like the way this area looked and decided to take a sample for a biopsy. His trained professional eye detected what was tested to be Squamous Cell Carcinoma, which thankfully was removed by Dr. Johnny Gurgen using the Mohs Surgical procedure. If left undetected this type cancer can be extremely problematic and even lethal. Michael also removes facial spots that may eventually turn cancerous if left ignored. I go for two visits per year and more often if necessary. I have complete faith in Doctor Gurgen, Michael, and the entire staff and highly recommend them to all for your Dermatology needs. God Bless !!!!!

Dr. Gurgen is amazing. He's the only one I trust for MOHS surgery. Plus the staff is very friendly and supportive. Michael is outstanding. I've seen him for my six month checkups, and he keeps everything under control.

Very Happy with Lady Lake Dermatology. Got right in for my appointment. Saw Dr Johnny. He answered all my questions and took his time during my exam. Made a couple of recommendation for some problems I was having on my face. Everyone in the office was also very nice to work with.

The brothers Gurgen are a great team. The office staff are responsive to calls and call back in a timely manner. I was on a wait list for an earlier appointment date, and they called me and got me in more than a week earlier. I went for an annual skin check and had an area of concern on my R arm. Taking the biopsy was quick and pain free. I highly recommend their practice for all your medical skin care needs.

I was uncomfortable about having yet another Doctor cut pieces off of me yet again. Both the staff and the Dr. were very professional and took the time to answer my questions and clam my concerns. All in all they took very good care of me and I will recommend them to my parish. If there is any negative it would be the chairs in the waiting area, I have a very bad back ( not their fault ) and the chairs offered little to no support. Rev. Fr. G. Koon +

I was so pleased after my first appointment! I had not been to a dermatologist for years, and was apprehensive about where to go/whom to see. After researching on-line, and based on reviews and credentials, I chose Dr. Gurgen's office at Lady Lake Dermatology. I am very glad that I did. From my initial contact with the receptionist, Mary, through to the exam with Mollie, the P.A., and her assistant, Mikaela, I felt comfortable with and confident about the level of care that I was receiving. Thank you!

I was greeted with friendly staff, and was taken in over two hours before my appointment. The receptionist helped me with the paperwork needed for new patients. Very kind lady. Then Miss Mollie and her assistant took me into the exam room and treated me for my viral wart on my foot. Asked me if I had any questions, and they answered them right away. Then offered a referral to get a couple of troubling toenails looked at by a specialist. Couldn’t ask for a better experience. I thank all of them there. Uncle Paul.

Great experience. Office staff was friendly and welcoming. I was seen right away. PAC was knowledgeable, thorough and informative. Gentle with biopsies, and answered all questions and concerns. Didn't have to come back for a second visit after initial evaluation. Took care of things right away. Recommend them highly.

I had MOHS surgery last week at the Lady Lake Office. Every one of the staff there, including Dr. Gurgan, were professional, courteous and knowledgeable. I liked that they provided me with written instructions for post-op care as well as a name and phone number of who to call if I had complications on the weekend.
