By the time my husbands election is over I fear my kids will call the baby sitter Mom and y’all will call my blog Dr. Sandy’s blog. But hey, if that’s the only fear I’m dealing with life is GREAT! I thank my baby sitter and all the women at Jack and Jill (the preschool my 3 and 5 year old go to) as often as possible letting them know I appreciate their help in raising our children! If I didn’t have such amazing people to leave my children with I may not ever be able to leave them. Likewise, I worry none when Dr. Sandy writes a blog for me. She is my mentor in Dermatology and has taught me more about leadership than I’ve ever dreamed of knowing. Everything is better with a team. One brain is never as good as two. What makes Johnson Dermatology great is the team. We have the best team. Team work makes the dream work. When I was a birthday coordinator at Chuck E. Cheese all the T.E.A.M leaders knew that was an acronym for teaching everyone about making magic. Today Dr. Sandy talks about how our team at JD makes magic.
When I was a child, it was a luxury to stay up late on Saturday nights and watch SNL with my dad. One of his favorite skits was “you look mahhhhhvelous”. Billy Crystal even made a music video because it was such a hit. A link to the video is https://youtu.be/hXydX9p_ZxA There would be some debate whether it is better to look great or feel great. The consensus would usually be that if you look good then you feel good AND if you feel good then you look good. (Classic chicken and egg Story) This skit and it’s deeper meaning ( I can’t believe I am looking for deeper meaning from SNL.) really resonated with me. I feel that my calling in life is to help people feel and look marvelous/skintastic. I am honored to live out this calling with 50 other skintastic people at JD. When you come to JD, we want you to leave even more marvelous/skintastic. We accomplish this best when we are at the top of our game and following our vision to provide the most effective, efficient, empathic and empowering care. I will summarize our 4 E’s vision in this blog. There will be a part 2 blog coming soon explaining why I have been thinking about Billy Crystal, SNL, parodies, and the importance of looking mahhvelous to help you feel mahhvelous.

We enjoy feel good treatments as much as anyone but we have decided to focus only on results oriented treatments and products to help you look marvelous. We are your partner in skin care….in sickness and in health….through better and through worse. We are here to help you look skintastic.
Efficient— your time and money is valuable. We try to see people within 20 minutes of their appointment time. We try to offer products with good science and ingredients that give the best results.
