Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Mamelak and his staff were extremely personable and engaging. At no point during my visit did I feel like I was being rushed or was wasting anyone's time (you'd be surprised how often that seems to happen). Dr. Mamelak listened to my concerns and problem description then went to come up with a treatment plan. Dr. visits aren't on my top 10 list of fun things to do but today's visit was a pleasant experience.
Fantastic office staff. Everyone was very nice. Dr. Mamelak was friendly and knowledgable, and had several new suggestions for me. Very confidence-inspiring.
I was very pleased with my visit. The receptionist was very efficient. The nurse Veronica was welcoming and calming. The dr was extremely informative personable and actually fun. Highly recommend
Dr. Adam Mamelak always makes me feel very comfortable and is very assuring. I was pleasantly surprised by my visit and would recommend him to everyone I know. Even the staff is very friendly and the best part, the wait is really short.
The women at the front desk were rude. Waited 45 minutes before seeing doctor and once I did, he wasn't sure what was wrong. Went to to pick up my prescription from my pharmacy at the end of the day and the office hadn't even phoned it in. All in all, it has been a frustrating and time consuming experience.
Both the doctor and his nurse were wonderful. They created a very calm atmosphere and provided a reasonably priced treatment option. Also, they gave me a few good PCP recommendations because I'm new to Austin.
I feel very pleased with my decision to make Dr. Mamelak my dermatologist.
It was a nice visit. Ppl working there were polite and helpful. Doctor was thorough in examination. Quickly diagnosed symptoms. Just hope the treatment works.
Quick visit, very personable, seemed very knowledgable and listened to my thoughts/concerns and addressed them in a professional manner
Was super impressed with Dr. Mamelak and his entire staff!! What a great experience!! Super nice, super caring and great bedside manner!!
First visit. It was short but pleasant. Quick diagnosis (hopefully the right one...but we'll see) and recommended treatment. MA/Nurse was very friendly as was the physician. This office was recommended by a friend and, even though I had just one visit, I believe I could recommend them as well.
Great staff and treatment is top notch. However their appointment management system is highly annoying. Too many email and text reminders.
The office staff were very good and ready to take me in for my first appointment. I waited in the waiting area for maybe 10-15 minutes before I was called back. I was seen by the doctor quickly. The office and rooms were very clean and everyone seemed nice.
He is very kind and takes lots of time examaning and explaining things clearly
Dr. Mamelak was very informative and engaging. He asked good questions regarding my issue and provided me with good answers to the questions I asked.
Once I finally got called back, everything was great. The doctor is awesome. I must complain though about my 45-minute wait. This put my behind schedule for the rest of my day. It was very inconsiderate of them.
The doctor made me feel very uncomfortable and answered all my questions. The office is very sleek.
He was great! Very attentive and personable.
The facility was very nice, stylish and up to date. The staff was very friendly and Dr. Mamelak was really personable and a great listener. He made me feel very comfortable during my procedure and I would definitely recommend this place to a friend.
It was very quick and he was super nice and he knew right away what was wrong with my leg (:
Dr. Mamelak was great! His nurse Natasha, is wonderful and sweet! I really like how warm and friendly they are.
I've been having the worst time finding a GOOD dermatologist, so many seemed to look at me as a dollar sign and I'd feel like a slab of meat being weighed for the worth; having products and sales attempts shoved in my face, but not here! The receptionist and the nurses were kind and attentive, and Dr.Mamelak was VERY kind and asked a lot of questions about my case while offering his own advice. He listened, didn't rush, and talked everything over with me, ( also very patient, even when I got scattered brained and goofed up a bit ) heck, the nurses after he left talked it over with me again! I have JUST started the road to my treatments, but with Dr. Mamelak, I feel confident. HIGHLY recommend!
Dr. Mamelak gives you his focused attention. He treats you with care and patience. He works well with patients with autism.
First class doctor! He took the time to review all my history and explained the various options for medical treatment; I never felt rushed. Rather than have me come back for another appointment he took the time to perform the additional cosmetic procedures I had inquired about. He has a calm voice and continued to apologize each time he made an injection; great bedside manner! I will definitely return for both medical and cosmetic needs!
The whole staff was very friendly. The office is very clean and inviting. Dr. Mamelak made me feel comfortable and addressed all my needs and didn't make me feel rushed. I look forward to my next appointment.
Fantastic Dr. I would highly recommend going to him!
He was very interested in my medical history as well as just getting to know me. I trusted him 100%!
I had a super visit with the doctor. He was patient with all my questions and very informative. He tells you about products at stores and his office without pressure to buy. Worked well with my son who has autism, too.
Very professional, personable and answered all of my question and more! I am definitely going back.
Everyone is great. Dr. Mamelak, and Tricia.
My wife saw Dr. Mamelak a couple of weeks back and after dealing with their office staff and policies for the last two weeks, we can never recommend Dr. Mamelak to anyone who needs/expects any information from their office within a reasonable amount of time. Reasons ------------ Dr. Mamelak ordered some Blood work but it took at least 3 calls and more than a week to get him to review the results or get any information about it. If this was the only problem, it would have been OK but: 1) The office refused to provide a copy of lab reports for our personal records unless we went in again to sign a release form. But wait there's more - after we went in and signed the release form, we were told that it will take them at least TWO weeks to provide a copy of the reports to us. It seems they need this amount of time so that the doctor can sign-off on the report. Why he didn't do that when he finally reviewed the report is beyond me.... 2) The reports had to be sent to two other doctors that my wife was seeing. Same story, they need at least two weeks from the time release is signed before they can send the results out to the other doctors in the care team. Both these doctors were going to prescribe at least one of the tests that DR. Mamelak ordered and since my wife had just got the tests done a couple of days back on, they decided to wait for the reports to be transmitted to them. It's been two weeks since the tests were performed and from what the office staff told us, it will be another two weeks from today before the results are sent out. If we need a quicker turnaround now, the only option we have left if to either try to somehow verbally communicate the results back to the other doctor's office so that they can correct the dosage of some of the medicines or try and get this test done again to save about a week of time. Long story short, don't go there if you expect reasonable office policies and a reasonable turn-around time.
It was a great visit. The staff was extremely nice and checked me in. Dr. Mamelak was nice, informative, and helpful. I would reccomend him to others.
Great overall experience. Very attentive and helpful.
Great office, staff and doctor. Dr. Mamelak is our new dermatologist!
Great. He was personable and reassuring.
excellent all around.
It's about time I find the dermatologist I have been looking for!
Minor mention...the telephone voicemail menu doesn't specifically give an option to "Make an appointment"
Dr. Mamelak was incredibly professional but he was also very personable and made me feel comfortable for the duration of my appointment. He was thorough and informative and kept the conversation upbeat. I left the office with no questions and a good understanding of the condition my skin is in.
Dr. Mamelak is an awesome doctor. He knows how to put his patients at ease and makes your visit relaxing. He is very knowledgeable in his professional and I would highly recommend him.

Dr. Adam is one of the best Dermatologist in Austin. I highly recommend him ..
Very professional. Beautiful offices. Felt like being in a plastic surgeons office. At the time the location was a bit tricky to find using Google Maps. That looks to have since been corrected. Staff very friendly and attentive. Great bedside. First visit. Took care of my issue in same visit which included a minor removal procedure. Excellent results.
Very quick and easy visit! He really knows his stuff! A+
Very knowledgable and professional!
Dr. patiently, and thoroughly educated me on various solutions to my skin concerns. I chose to have dermal fillers in my laugh lines and under my eyes. He used hyaluronic acid. Dr. is an amazing artist with a keen eye for shaping the face in the most ascetically pleasing way possible. It's only been an hour after my procedure. After applying ice-packs and arnica montana gel to my treated areas I already see a noticeably more youthful appearance. I should have gone to him sooner!
awesome guy. thanks!
Great visit, would highly recommend Dr. Mamelak to anyone.
Everyone was great, making the appointment was easy, and I received excellent information from the Doc. Will return.
Professional, personable, knowledgable. Gave all the time needed. Did not feel rushed. VERY good experience.

The wait was long but the people were nice. I will be going back there.
Very professional and personable! Thank you!
Dr. Mamelak was very personable. He was great with my 11 year old daughter, who was the patient. He put her at ease, made her feel a part of her treatment decision, and made her laugh. I believe we've found a new dermatologist for the family!
Dr. Mamelak is the man. He is one of Austins best
My first meeting went well. Dr. Mamelak, and his staff were generous with their time, and personable. The "vibes" in the office were better than most.

Will be setting up my yearly with him. Fantastic experience :)

Relaxing environment, great service & great people
He was very professional and made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend him as a doctor.
He seemed clueless regarding a basic rash that I had and acted very unprofessional as if he could really care less and I was putting him out by coming to see him.
Super cool guy! Staff was so sweet as well! Made me feel very comfortable and a spotless warm,cozy waiting area!
Quick, professional but with an easy-going manner; felt very comfortable throughout the visit and small procedure he performed.
Dr. Mamelak is very laid-back and doesn't make you feel rushed. He consistently asks 'Are you happy with your current regime? Is there anything that could make you happier that I could help with?' He listens to concerns and the office staff has always been incredibly helpful and personable as well.

I am not a botox girl and worried about the emphasis placed on cosmetic procedures on their website and in the office but the visit was very professional and my skin concerns were in fact appropriately addressed. Would recommend Dr. Mamelak, he seems like a great doc.
He was thorough and has a good sense of humor.
Was waiting in the office an hour and a half before he came. Was not satisfied.
He was a very nice doctor and seemed very genuine. Would definitely go back
Very courteous and listens to patients.
Dr. Mamelak has a great bedside manner and starts each appointment by asking questions and listening closely. He explains everything clearly and he's available for follow-up if treatments aren't working. I went to see him for rosacea, and he worked to find the right treatment based on which had the fewest side effects. It cleared up quickly and hasn't recurred. Highly recommend!
I felt that it went well and I was impressed by the professionalism of the entire operation.
Probably one of the nicest physicians I have had the pleasure to see. I would definitely recommend him and his staff and will be going back for further treatment.
Love the Doctors and Staff, wish they were more punctual with their appointment times.

Dr. Mamelak is awesome, I am pleased to have found a great new dermatologist. He made me feel completely at ease during my skin screening and prescribed medication for a couple of other skin conditions that he noted/I asked about. He even asked me about myself. I couldn't ask for a better experience!
