Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Mayer was responsible to call and intake information soon after the appointment was scheduled. She discussed the situation and my hesitancy to initially go and clarified that she did not participate in any insurance plan. She discussed medication plan and that it would take time and immediately scheduled a follow up appointment.
She is a very sympathetic woman. She really listens and it feels like she genuinely wants to help you through whatever it is that is troubling you and has the knowledge and experience to do so.
This was my first appointment with Dr. Mayer, but I can say that I felt very comfortable with her. She was courteous, knowledgable, and easy to talk to. Her office space is also very comfortable and bright.
I found her bedside manner to be nonexistent, and her vibe icy and judgmental.
