Very professional manner. He listened to my concerns. Detailed exam, knowledgeable, warm and personable but professional. Office staff is great, and I found street parking two blocks away.
Great doctor, organized office, no waiting time – highly recommended.
Dr. Meinhardt was very informative without being alarmist and it was an incredibly good appointment. I had a rare condition that he immediately spotted and he did a great job explaining. He has great bedside manner and is a very nice guy. I definitely will continue to see him as long as I live in LA.
Dr. Meinhardt was personable, thorough and professional. He is knowledgeable and very pleasant to speak with. I felt very comfortable with his diagnosis and the procedure he performed.
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 the receptionists 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.
Super professional and sweet. Would highly recommend!
Dr. Meinhardt was great
Great office! Everyone was very kind and answered all of my questions. I even had a last minute request to remove a skin tag and they were able to make it work and do it while I was there. I’ve been back and will be going back for all of my skin concerns.
Dr. Meinhardt was very helpful. Minimal wait time. Very good experience.
He's the man and the staff is great too. Great overall experience.
Dr. Reinhardt was wonderful! I was worried I had skin cancer and he assured me it was nothing at all. Danielle up front was also very helpful and friendly. The office is sleek and clean and it was a great experience overall!
Great, friendly and knowledgeable doctor. Fantastic staff.
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 my concerns 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.
Very nice and organized office, was quickly taken back and seen by doctor. He was attentive and answered all of my questions thoroughly and explained my treatment.
Dr Meinhardt was professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and understanding with my concerns.

I would refer
Professional and clean attractive office. Felt very private and comfortable. Dr Meinhardt was friendly and knowledgeable. Have already recommended him to coworkers and friends.
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 and kind 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!
He really listens and is very attentive and highly knowledgable. I highly recommend him!
Dr. Meinhardt and his office assistant were terrific. They were both friendly and helpful and the office was comfortable and very clean. I appreciated how clearly they both explained things to me. Such a good experience that I made a follow up appointment right then and there.
Dr. Meinhardt was fantastic- he answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. Thankful to have found a dermatologist that helps me to understand and doesn't have a six month waiting period.
Kind, patient, informative and answered all of my questions clearly. Never felt rushed.
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 to do 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!
Very pleasant, knowledgeable, great bedside manner, clean and stylish office.
Dr. Meinhardt was very knowledgeable and informative. He was so friendly and kind.
Great doctor. Good diagnosis of the problem. Good explanation (in layman's terms) and treatment of the problem.
He is the best. I go to him for all my skin care (cosmetic and medical) needs.
Extremely pleased with my experience at Dr. Meinhardt's office. I booked my appointment online less that 24 hours before the scheduled visit. They literally saw me within 5 minutes of my arrival and Eric was very respectful of my time. Got the answers I needed and was on my way. Highly recommend.
I hadn't used Zocdoc before, so I thought people were highly rating doctors because they were being told to, or possibly being given discounts or something. I have to say, Dr. Meinhardt really measured up to what I had read about him here, and I felt compelled to leave a review because of the quality of my appointment with him. He took all the time I needed to address all of my concerns during my appointment, and didn't seem to rush me. At. All. It really felt like he took me seriously, never made fun of or downplayed my anxiety over my medical concerns, and genuinely explained things to me until I completely understood them and didn't have any more questions (i.e., treated me like a partner in my medical care, instead of talking down to me from a position of authority bestowed upon him by virtue of his medical degree). He explained procedures before starting them, seemed very respectful and interested in me feeling comfortable throughout the visit, and generally left me with a feeling that I had found a dermatologist I will go back to. Beyond that, the woman at the front desk was so lovely! I had trouble getting to the office, and she was really understanding and patient. The waiting room chairs were super comfortable (and I both suffer from chronic pain and am a larger person, so this is really important to me in my doctor's appointments, where you usually have to wait for awhile to be seen) and the music was SO GOOD. I know it may sound inconsequential, but all of these seemingly minor details contributed to a genuinely pleasant doctor's appointment over some medical issues that I was really scared about. I'm really grateful for my appointment with Dr. Meinhardt, and highly recommend his services.
Great service, very nice and seemed to know a lot about skin issues!
Very professional, kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. Felt extremely comfortable both with his energy and bedside demeanor, as well as with his knowledge and opinion regarding my concerns. Clean, stylish office with very pleasant and professional assistant.
I'm so glad I went to Dr. Meinhardt! I've been searching for a new dermatologist and decided on him! So so glad I did. It was truly the first dermatologist I've ever felt really listened to me and addressed every single one of my concerns and questions. He totally took into consideration everything I said and was incredibly knowledgable and helpful! This guy knows what he's doing. Friendly, helpful and really spends time with his patients. Can't recommend him enough!
Wonderful experience :) He listens and really cares to get down to the root problem. He is also very patient and friendly! He is one of the nicest doctors i've met. The fact that he speaks Spanish is a plis.
Dr Eric was great ! I went to him with some acne which had recently flared up. He took his time to ask about my history, which of my past treatments have worked and which haven't. Unlike lots of other dermatology appointments, I didn't feel rushed at all. Regarding the treatment, he took the time to examine my face and offer several routes which we might go through, discussing the pros and cons of each. Not to mention the great receptionist, who was very friendly and took the time to help me with my insurance problems. All in all, a great visit. Highly recommended!
Clean office. Awesome front desk customer service. Doctor was very caring and experienced. Set up a daily routine to help clear up my skin.
Consummate professional and genial. Very contemporary, sleek office.
Awesome visit! Both the doctor and staff were extremely nice, knowledgeable, patient, open, and prompt. He is the best Derm I've ever seen!
Professional, solid guy. Had quick answers for my questions and explained everything easily.
Nice place and the visit was great, I was paying out of pocket so I felt the consultation was a little pricey. Dr Eric was great though, he was super nice and willing to answer all questions patiently
My visit was quick and thorough. I will definitely make my future appointments with him.
Great experience, highly recommended.
Dr. Meinhardt promptly saw me, performed the body scan as requested, and answered all questions I had. No selling, overdiagnosing or anything of the sort. Will be coming back as needed!
Dr. Meinhardt was super nice, it was a super easy exam and he made it a great experience. His office staff was also SUPER friendly and nice, easy to work with, and went to a lot of trouble to help me with my insurance and figure out the best way for me to go about it. Just a very nice experience, I will definitely be back.
Dr. Meinhardt and his staff were great! The woman at the front desk was kind and welcoming. Dr. Meinhardt was also very nice, knowledgable, and genuinely concerned. I would definitely recommend this dermatologist to anyone looking for one in the area! Thank you for your help Dr. Meinhardt!
A wonderful doctor. His (Staff is Wonderful)! I'll be referring all my friends
Great guy - super helpful.
I arrived late but they were very accommodating and had me seen right away. Dr. Meinhardt was very courteous and didn't rush me. In fact, he took his time and listened to all my questions and recommended treatment plans thoroughly. I parked on the side streets next to the building, which is recommended since the lot charges. Next appointment is in 6 weeks!
Dr. Meinhardt was very friendly as was his staff and he took his time examining me. I've had trouble finding a dermatologist so it was refreshing to have a doctor who cares about his patients. A nice, clean office as well.
Dr. Meinhardt took his time and was very knowledgable. You could tell he genuinely cares about his patients.
Dr was very nice, apologized for the wait time and had me in and out quickly. Would recommend for folks on the west side. Of note: street sweeping in the surrounding neighborhood is Thurs/Fri 9A-12P or the garage is there right under the building for a reasonable rate.
Easy, efficient, and pleasant.
Very kind and professional. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything clearly. It was a great experience.
Wonderful Doctor! He is very bright, listens carefully and has truly taken care of all my needs. I recommend him without reservation!
I am first time patient. The office is immaculate! Both Dr. Meinhardt and his staff are so friendly and patient, that you immediately feel at ease. Usually visits to the dermatologist are very rushed, but here, I was able to discuss all my concerns in detail. Dr. Meinhardt closely inspected my skin (with a microscope) and offered an appropriate regimen. He is very easy to talk to and he explained what each treatment could offer me. I would highly recommend him, and I look forward to improving my skin!!
Great staff and doctor. Everyone was kind, jovial, and comforting. Thorough visit that left me confident I had found a doctor to visit regularly. Highly recommended.
Dr. Meinhardt was excellent in every way. We went over options for the treatment I incurred about and in a professional way determined the best option for me. The experience as a whole was educative and satisfying.
I typically take a long time to finally schedule medical appointments, partly due to a bit of fear and partly because I don't know where to begin to find the right doctor. When I was looking for a great dermatologist, I saw all of the positive reviews Dr. Meinhardt had received and was convinced he was the right person with whom to book an appointment. I am SO glad I did that because my entire experience at his office was pleasant. His staff is warm and welcoming, and he made me feel completely comfortable. He was very genuine and really listened to each question without rushing me through anything. I left feeling like all my questions had been answered and was totally relieved of all the worries I had prior to my appointment. All that being said, I would definitely recommend Dr. Meinhardt!
Awesome! Very personable and straight to the point. I came in early and was called right in.
I went in anxious and came out reassured, at ease and informed. Dr. Meinhardt gently walked me through each step of my exam and answered my questions professionally and patiently. The office itself is pristine, and the receptionist was kind and attentive. I've found my dermatological home!
Dr. Reinhardt takes his time, listens well, and seems to genuinely care.
attentive to questions and I was given options for treatment. I like to make my choice. Friendly office staff.
Out of seemingly no where, in the middle of the day, my mouth and chin exploded with painful and itchy bumps. I originally went to urgent care thinking it was an allergy, but the doctor there said it was cold sores/herpes and put me on antibiotics. But when my lips continued to swell and itch, I went on a google dive to find my real problem. I had some theories and ultimately set up an appointment with Dr. Meinhardt--Which was a GREAT choice. Dr. Meinhardt was attentive, caring and listened to all of the details -- even though I was crying while trying to explain. He didn't seem offended at all when I told him I googled searched the hell out of my symptoms and that I believed I was having an allergy to mango skin. In the end, he confirmed that he believes it is a rare allergic reaction to the skin of a mango and explained in detail why it happened and how to best treat the symptoms. He calmed me down and was incredibly patient and kind! It didn't feel like he was in any rush to leave and really took the time to answer any questions I had. His staff is also very friendly and kind! I highly recommend!
I was able to get an appointment quickly -- once I got there I was seen immediately. Being a health professional myself -- I appreciated his knowledge (even though he looks like he just graduated high school -- sorry doc -- had to say it). I wouldn't hesitate referring friends, family or patients to him.
Doctor Reinhardt and his office staff were great. He took his time and actually talked to me, instead of rushing in and rushing out like some other doctors. I've been trying to find a good dermatologist in LA for 10 years, and I've finally found someone I'll go back to!
He was very helpful and professional. He took great care in providing his treatment.
Dr. Meinhardt is a great. Extremely patient and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend him.

Fair, friendly, competent. Just an amazing fella
Dr Meinhardt is very knowledgeable and took the time to discuss my symptoms. The entire staff were fantastic right from the time I waled in the door. I would highly recommend!
Dr Meinhardt is very professional and a good listener. He let me tell him all that was going on with my skin problems and allowed me to show him what skin products I was using. After the exam and diagnosis, he sent the prescriptions to my pharmacy and actually wrote down the instructions of how to use them and the other products he recommended. I was very impressed.
Very happy with the care I received here. Extremely professional, personable and attentive to my needs and situation. I found a new favorite dermatologist in LA.
The nicest doctor I have ever had! Definitely going back and recommending him to everyone.
Very professional and thorough. Took his time and answered all my questions.
Dr. Meinhardt and his assistant were both excellent! He really took the time to explain and diagnose my issue with me and set out a clear path for treatment. There's nothing worse than a doctor who is trying to rush you out the door and he definitely does not do that! The new offices are great. Everything felt brand new and very clean.
