A big thank you to Dr. Darby. From the first step in the door to the last step out, every aspect of my visit with Dr Darby and staff was exceptional. The people at the front office were very professional, friendly and communicative. I had a vertical fracture that was quite painful. The first dentist I saw nearly sent me through the roof during the initial exam and made me terrified to consider treatment there. I then went to Dr. Darby and that pain free experience was like night and day. I also liked that Dr Darby was very thorough and spent time explaining the issues, discussing my options and making sure I felt completely comfortable. My husband and I spend most of the year in California but if I need any other dental procedure like the one I had, I'll be back in Ocala to see Dr. Darby.
I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Darby. He took a lot of time with me to discuss what he thought my problem was, what the possible treatment options would be and then did exactly what he said he would do. He and his staff were very kind and thoughtful and always made me feel comfortable. When I needed to contact Dr. Darby about a prescription, he took my call himself on a Saturday afternoon and called in the prescription I needed right away. The surgery went very well, and I did not experience any pain or problems due to the techniques he used. I have been 'released' as of today, as he has done all that was needed, and did not push any unnecessary treatments on me. I will highly recommend him.
I was apprehensive about the bone grafting on my implant, but I can tell you Dr. Johnson and his staff were caring and answered all my questions. I am so glad I had this procedure done. Not to much pain and I healed up nicely Thanks Doc, you are the best
I recently had periodontal surgery at Dr. Johnson's office and was totally satisfied with the office and the staff. Dr. Johnson was kind and gentle, making the surgery a pleasant experience. I never felt any pain, even during the recovery process. His staff was professional, friendly and caring. I would highly recommend this office.
My husband has been Dr. Darby's patient for the past 16 years. He is very attentive, thorough and professional. The treatment he is undergoing is lengthy in time and technically challenging, yet we have been very happy every step of the way with his care. I would recommend Dr. Darby to any of my friends and family .
Dr Johnson did an extraction, bone graft and dental implant. The procedures were easy and I had no pain for any procedure. Dr. Johnson is an excellent dentist, very professional and I would highly recommend him for any periodontal treatment. Best oral care I have ever received.
