Dr. Meinhardt was great. His office and exam rooms were very well appointed, his front office staff was helpful, and I was seen right on time. They were even able to move my girlfriend's appointment up from Friday to Wednesday sowe could be seen right in succession. The appointment itself was quick and to the point, but he still took time to hear all my concerns and my questions thoroughly. Looking forward to going back in a year for my annual skin check.

Dr. Meinhardt was wonderful— smart, accurate, kind, and very honest about what needed to be done and what wasn’t necessary. I will be returning very soon for some treatments that will take care of a problem I’ve had for years andjust never had found the right person to take care of it. Highly recommend the staff as well, everyone was efficient and extremely nice.

I've been seeing Dr. Meinhardt for several months and he is one of the best dermatologists I've ever seen; I have a chronic condition so I've been to a lot! First off, the office is insanely clean and comfortable and thereceptionists are over-the-top nice. My condition is aesthetic and...not that fun, and Dr. Meinhard's kind, sensitive manner goes a long way. He's the most knowledgeable doc I've seen and I fully recommend him.

Dr. Meinhardt is amazing! I was very frustrated with a medical condition that I had been experiencing for 4 months with no relief. I had already seen 3 doctors before finding Dr. Meinhardt. He was very patient while listening to myconcerns and diagnosed the real issue immediately. Within 24 hours, I was on the road to recovery! What a relief! Dr. Meinhardt is very knowledgeable and professional, and I am so thankful for his help.

I found dr.Meinhardt based on the yelp reviews and I was beyond impressed with my experience. Doctor and his assistant, Michaela are all I could have hoped for at the doctor’s office. I was completely blown away by how helpful andkind he was. In my case he successfully has treated a severe and unusual allergic reaction. He made me feel 100% comfortable when taking a skin biopsy, he called the lab to expedite the results. He answered each and every one of my questions. He is very knowledgeable, a truly outstanding doctor, in addition a compassionate and caring person. Frankly, I thought they don't make them like this anymore. Absolutely recommend him to all my family and friends!

First time patient. Makayla [sic], the front desk coordinator, was very nice and hospitable. The office is new and clean. The wait was very short, and I had filled out all of my paperwork through Zocdoc, so all I had todo was sign one thing on an iPad. Love the efficiency! The Doc M had great bedside manner, and took care of my issue with ease and experience. I was out of there in no time and am a happy patient. Thanks, Doc!
