Verified Patient Reviews
Absolutely love him and this practice in general! very friendly, office is clean and you're seen within minutes. Dr. Marc was very friendly and listened to my concerns and answered all my questions. I would recommend this practice to anyone.
Laid back doctor, honestly very cool.
Always good. Knows the issues!!!
I am very happy that a friend referred me to Dr. Meulener. He was very professional and put me right at ease.
Effective, efficient, timely, pleasant doc and staff.
Efficient, friendly, and helpful.
Very professional and was given proper attention
Dr. Meulener is a fantastic doctor. I think his work plus his bedside manner is really top notch. He is a very warm and caring doctor.
Loved the doctor - super nice, willing to listen, genuinely felt as if he wanted to answer any outstanding questions I had. As far as the office goes... I came in on a Friday and was shocked to hear the receptionist staff openly calling patients on the phone to see if they wanted to come in earlier than their scheduled appointment time. They had no shame in admitting in front of waiting patients that this was in hopes of being able to leave early. I was 15 minutes early for my appointment but ended up waiting 15 minutes in the waiting room and an additional 15 minutes in the exam room to ultimately see the doctor for 5 minutes. Clearly every patient that afternoon had taken the option to come in early and there was no consideration for appointment times whatsoever. I've never once heard of an office doing this and it ended up backing up everyone else's appointments... Very bizarre and unprofessional. I liked the doctor so much that I would be willing to come back again, but I think this issue with scheduling definitely needs to be addressed.
In and out just how I like it
Dr. Meulener listened well to my symptoms and concerns about the situation at hand. He provided advice, care, and a plan for treatment that satisfied my needs.
Extremely professional and appointment was right on time. So happy I found them!
It went well!
This is a great Doctor. Very good manner with patients
Fantastic, per usuaul!
Amazing and fast
Thorough and personable
I had an extremely quick appointment. I am not sure how much this had to do with the fact that it was a 5 pm appointment on a Friday, but I didn't expect to be hurried since that appointment was available. I was called at 4:59 when I was parking to make sure I was coming, then had maybe 4-5 minutes with the doctor to discuss my issue. When I got home I realized I didn't know how long to use the prescription, and it didn't say on the box. I was recommended Dr. Meulener by a friend, and would go back, but would probably book a more middle of the day appointment time due to my experience.
My first time there and I didn't see Dr Meulener, I was treated by is practitioner. She was very friendly and polite, she made me feel comfortable. The front desk in the other hand was not too friendly, the lady wouldnt even smile. But overall not a bad visit.
Dr Meulener was wonderful. He had to Take a biopsy of a suspicious mole. Right away he made me feel calm. I had not been to a Dermatologist in Years. He saw me right away and Assured me he would have answers by Early next week
Greatl experience: quick, thorough and totally helpful.
Very knowledgeable and thorough!
Good visit. Was happy the doctor was upfront about the coverage and he performed the quick procedure that was not covered at no cost to me except for the visit. Very happy.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
He is the best. Great doctor and bedside manner
I've been seeing him for 2+ years and my acne is still not gone. Sent prescription to wrong pharmacy and forgot my other prescription. Many recommend but not the best suit for me personally.
Very professional. Loved not having to fill out tons of paperwork beforehand. The doctor arrived into examination room on the dot of the appointment time. Helpful, attentive, and informative. Thank you!
Everything went fine. I did not have to wait long just a couple of minutes. At the reception everyone was pleasant. I got all the info I needed from the doctor and all prescriptions were sent to pharmacy quickly. Good job! Thanks
He's excellent. This was my 2nd visit. I'm a big fan.
Fantastic, professional and awesome bedside manners. Would definetly recommend him to friends, family and professional associates.
He was prompt and took time to answer all my questions. He took all my concerns into consideration. I will definitely be back to see him.
Kind demeanor, asks a lot of questions, and seems to truly care about making his patient feel at ease.
Love Doc Muelener. He's a great person and a great dermatologist
As usual - top rate
Very thorough and explained anything I needed to know in an understanding and caring manner
Excellent service. They really care about their patients.
Our first visit was very good. Listened and gave my son options for both immediate treatment as well as options going forward. Dr. Meulener was honest and knowledgeable. Prescriptions were obtained very timely, and our wait time was very minimal.
It was easy to get an appointment and appointment was right on time. Office was nice and clean. Dr. Meulener and staff were all very nice and professional. The only thing that I thought was strange is they told me results would be available in around 5-7 days, when I received no call after a week I called them to get the results of my biopsy, not sure why they didn't just call me with the results once they had them.
He has a wonderful bedside manner and is so calming and reassuring
Dr. M was professional, friendly, attentive and reassuring. He examined all my concerns and addressed treatment.
It's always a pleasure. Very professional, helpful and addresses the issues at hand.
Everyone was very polite, friendly and accommodating. Very professional. Highly recommend!
Him and the PA are both awesome. I was struggling with a skin problem for MONTHS and this team took care of it. Highly recommended.
As always he is very professional very thorough and very pleasant. Highly recommended
Easy commute from my house. There was on site parking. The receptionist was friendly. I was seen a few minutes after arriving. Dr. Meulener was personable and efficient. Would recommend this doctor.
Excellent excellent excellent. Exceptional knowledge Ivy League educated very patient listens to the patient and look forward to years and years of service.
Great doctor, knows what he's doing. Highly recommend!
Patient, kind doctor
Dr. Meulener is great!
Dr. Meulener has an exceptionally kind bedside manner and took care of my mother. We appreciate all your help.
Fantastic doctor... highly recommend!
Everything was pretty good. The one drawback was that there was a female assistant in the room with the doctor. As a male, I felt a bit embarrassed and was not as forthcoming as I would have been with my issues had only the doctor himself been present. Perhaps a nonissue for some. On the positive side, the doctor seemed trustworthy, and there was almost no waiting time.
The doctor was very personable, friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend him to others.
Great doctor! Highly recommend and this is coming from someone who has seen a lot of dermatologists.
Laser hair removal is not working. Hair grew back right away. This is second treatment. Want to redo upper lip. Think it was missed.
He was great. He treated my condition and it resolved. What else could you ask for?
It is always a pleasure to see Dr. Meulener. He makes you feel very comfortable, takes his time and makes sure he touches on everything you want to discuss. I appreciate his kind office staff and the minimal wait time to see him.
I have been seeing Dr. Meulener for a few years, and have recommended him to relatives, friends and neighbors. His excellent qualifications certainly inspire confidence, and his friendly manner makes it easy to ask questions or describe problems. Appointments don't feel rushed, and I've always seen the doctor close to the scheduled time. The women on his staff are also friendly, pleasant to talk to, and very professional. Over the years I've had several other dermatologists, and I think we're lucky to have Dr. Meulener in this area now.
Dr. Meulener is highly professional!
He is simply the best dermatologist in the area. Period.
Excellent service with great staff and MD.
Very professional thorough doctor. Nice office staff and you can't beat the location.
Professional, caring and focused.
My whole family and bff have switched to Dr Muelener and all were very pleased.
Staff and doctors are down to earth
Down to earth Doctor knowledgable and friendly. Definitely what you want in medical care.
Thanks very much
Dr. Meulener was actually the nicest kindest most helpful dr I believe I have ever met. I had no wait time, his staff was more than helpful and friendly and I left feeling very cared for. Highly highly recommend.
I didn't wait very long and he was very knowledgable and proffesional. My problem is gone just as he said and I will be going here from now on.
He is an amazing Doctor as well as his P.A., She is also very knowledgeable and helped me with my problem within 10 minutes I walked in the waiting room and was out with all my questions and concerns taken care of. I would recommend him to anyone
I had a great first visit with Dr. Meulener, and felt totally comfortable and at ease during my appointment. He is kind, personable, confident and obviously very well-versed in his field of practice. I will happily recommend Dr. Meulener to all of my local friends looking for a friendly, patient and knowledgable dermatologist!
Always professional and knowledgable
This was my first time visiting Dr. Marc and his office. I was so happy with the pleasantness of the front office staff and Dr. Marc. My visit was quick and yet I was well taken care of. Dr. Marc was thorough and kind.
Dr. Marc Meulener, is a true professional and caring doctor. He takes the time to review everything with you. Dr. Meulener cares about his patients and is open to answering all questions concerning procedures.
Great doctor. Very professional and clean office. Home run
Office staff is welcoming and professional. I was seen within 10 minutes of my arrival; all questions were answered by the Doctor in a friendly, knowledgeable way, much to my satisfaction
Marc saw me immediately on arrival. It is so refreshing to have a prompt doctor for a change!
Very friendly and competent staff and doc
Great staff great doctor.
Very Bright Doctor and professionally competent.
Dr. Muelener is attentive and takes the time to listen to your concerns. He is down to earth and his staff is top notch. I would highly recommend.
Dr. Meulener is awesome and his office staff is very efficient, personable and helpful. I have been to a few dermatologists and Dr. Meulener is, by far, the best! He treated a suspicious mole which other doctors have dismissed as nothing. He also fixed my acne issues. I have been trying to fix this problem for years! Don't waste your time anywhere else. This guy is "in the know". :)
Great, warm, approachable Doctor.
Always a great experience. Dr. Meulener and his staff are the best!
so informative and remembered my name!! very personable!
I had a great first appointment with Dr. Meulener. He listened to everything I had to say and did not make me feel rushed at all. The office staff was kind and professional. I'll definitely be back.
I had a very positive experience with Dr. Meulener. He is friendly, explained everything and answered all my questions. I was also able to get an appointment within 24 hours as a first time patient. The only negative was the wait time was pretty long, but this is usual with dermatologists. Highly recommend.
It was a great visit. I was seen right away and treatment and diagnosis have started! Thank you!
I was surprised how quickly I was seen, and thought the visit was great!
Did not seem to be in a rush. Listened to everything I said.
Great Dr. He took his time with us and was very caring. I would highly recommend him.
Visit lasted about 5mins. 1st a PA came in and asked some questions. She was very nice and actually looked at and touched my skin. The MD came in and Really didn't give a thorough exam. I was definitely fooled by othe reviews.
Very nice staff. Dr Meulner was on time, very thoughtful, and provided options regarding treatment.
I would highly recommend to anyone that needs to see a phenomenal dermatologist.
From the minute we walked in until we walked out of the office we were pleased. Everyone was incredibly pleasant, and upbeat. The doc was very informative, helpful and fixed 2 problems with ease. He provided all the info needed and was caring too.
He is one of the best I've ever been to and I'm 64.
Very professional, but also very personable.
Dr. Marc was completely thorough with my skin screening and explained what he was doing and put me at ease. Made suggestions for my concerns and offered options. Would highly recommend both the doctor and staff.
Found him to be very polite and knowledgable
Very nice, from receptions to Dr. Very professional.
So far, so good!
I will be visiting again in the future and felt comfortable with his answers to my questions and his explanations about other issues.
Dr. Meulener is a superb physician. He is generous with his time and extremely knowledgeable.
Very courteous and knowledgeable. Highly recommended !
Everything went OK.
He was warm, caring, and professional. Very competent. Staff was great. Office very well run
I was very pleasantly surprised with my visit. I had never used this site before and was a bit skeptical about booking my appointment through them. However, as soon as I walked through the door of Dr. Meulener's office the receptionist new my name. I filled out a brief form, handed her my insurance cards and sat down. I was called in within 20 minutes or so. Dr. Meulener came in with an assistant and asked if it was ok for her to be there. He was very personable and asked me about my allergic reaction. I was surprised that he knew about what had happened to me a couple of weeks earlier. He reminded me that I had written about it when I booked my appointment through ZocDoc. Again, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that he actually read that!! He examined me, answered my questions and advised me to return for a full skin check up. Since I am a brunette with brown eyes and olive completion, I was not expecting him to say that. I have been to dermatologists before and they take one look at me and treat me like, "people like you don't get skin cancer". Dr. Meulener did not dismiss my concerns; he was professional, but not an alarmist!! I will definitely return and recommend him to my friends.
Dr. Meulener and staff are the best! I would recommend to anyone!
Office staff was friendly. Consultation with doctor was productive; he examined and identified my condition quickly.
Was quick, professional and addressed my problem effectively
Was seen very quickly. Explained everything that was going on and how they were going to treat me. I would definitely recommend his practice to everyone.
Dr Meulener is always friendly & great to work with!
The all time best! He's quick, he listens and he gets to the bottom of the issue immediately. I used to go to Warren Dermatology and Dr. Eisenberg in Watchung - trust me, Dr. Meulener is 10000x better and more knowledgable.
Dr Marc Rocks
I thought that my visit with Mr. Marc Meulener was excellent. He gave me many different prescription options and has so much knowledge in his field. I loved that he gave me small samples to test the medications just to make sure they were geared correctly to our needs. He was overall very polite, intelligent, and we had a great visit.
This was my first and best experience with a dermatologist. Dr meulener diagnosed my skin rash instantly, where even an emergency room and other doctors were clueless. Very prompt, I was in and out in 30 minutes! Kind, knowledgeable, swift-perfect!
Dr Meulener was very thorough and friendly. I had to wait a bit in the waiting room before the appointment, but I really didn't mind because he did not rush me when it was my turn. Great doctor!
Very professional and knowledgeable, as well as personable.
He remembered me since the last time I came there which was in August, and he remembered what my problem was. He is very efficient and knows his stuff.
Great doctor was very professional explain everything in details.
Doctor Meulener is a great Doctor I would recomend him to all people.
Extremely professional highly knowledgeable knows exactly what he's doing with a great attitude. Cares deeply about his patients and will answer any and all your questions to your satisfaction. Will spend as much time with you as needed never rushed
Excellent experience; Dr. Meulener is the best dermatologist I've seen.
First time patient and great first experience. Will certainly refer and use again.
The doctor was very professional and friendly.
Very kind and knowledgeable. He knew exactly what my condition was and how to treat it; he wrote two prescriptions that immediately helped. Great experience
A pro at making my teenager feel comfortable!
Dr.Meulener and every single staff member are great....They are All friendly and kind and answer all questions. ....They make you feel welcome and at ease....Wonderful all around experience
Doctor is excellent, receptionist, nurse staff a little weird.
From the moment I entered the office I was greeted by the most pleasant receptionist. She had all my paperwork (which I had filled out on ZocDoc) and she was a pleasure to talk to. It was only moments from when I sat down to when I was called in by the physicians assistant. And only another few moments before I was seen by the doctor. Dr. Meulener wonderful. He took the time to listen and asses why I was there. He gave me several options and explained each treatment in detail. Dr. Meulener came highly recommended from other in the local community and for good reason. I look forward to visiting his office again and I highly recommend Dr. Meulener and his practice.
Phenomenal. The folks there were tremendous. Friendly knowledgable and quick! I'll definitely be back if necessary.
Dr. Muelener provides an efficient practice of dermatology. His office has support staff that know their business. My visit experience was friendly and inspired confidence.
Dr. Meulener is knowledgeable, courteous and shows a genuine interest in listening to his patients concerns. He then makes his professional recommendations. The office staff is polite as well. Highly recommended.
I went for receding hairline consultation. He was quick and did not take much time.
Very professional with a nice deminer.
Excellent doctor, have me a comprehensive exam and helped me with a recurring acne issue. Was in and out on my lunch break. Thankful I was referred by my coworker!
professional, caring and took the time to listen to my concerns. It is not too often that you find a great doctor like I did today. I really appreciated all the time he spent with me and did not rush me at all.
Doc was good, but there is only one word to describe the office in Elizabeth - filthy.Small waiting room, and horrible restrooms. We had to wait an hour... , can you believe it...,to be seen. All this while, I was cursing my self , why the heck did I come here. I will give the doctor one more chance in the baskin ridge facility.
He knows how to talk to his patients and he is ready to answer all your questions
Dr Meulener is very professional. I have been to 4 different dermatologist in the last 6 months. They were all horrible. Manners were horrible and they had no idea what was wrong with me. None of them took the time to exam me, So I did some research and Dr Meulener came up as one of the top dermatologist in North New Jersey. He was awesome.
Dr. Meulener is a very kind and caring professional! I was taken into the examination room almost right away. The doctor gave a thorough exam, and treated me with respect throughout. It was a very good experience.
The only reason i gave him 4 stars is because it was my first visit. I would like another appointment to get familiar but first impression days that there'll be a 2nd and 3rd.
It was good he is a nice doc
Professional staff. Very good doctor
Dr. Marc Meulener was very professional, very knowledgeable, excellent bedside manner and a cute smile.
The Dr. was very thorough and explained all of the options that I had and concerns had in a very timely manner. I would definitely recommend him to future people looking for doctors.
Dr. Meulener was great! Waiting room was full, but still only a short wait. Staff very friendly! Highly recommend!
Awesome doctor, nice , friendly
Very professional doctor. Obviously highly intelligent. Took the time to explain what could be the issue and how he was going to take care of it. When doing something that could have been potentially slightly uncomfortable, he explained each step before doing it and was thorough and patient. Had a gentle hand and the procedure was not uncomfortable after all. Very impressed,and would definitely recommend him. His office receptionist Jeanette told me he is a scientist in addition to being a great dermatologist and is a superb doctor (always a good sign when the staff talks highly about their employer behind their back!). She herself was efficient and friendly. Excellent experience as a patient for me.
The doctor was amazing and very professional. The procedure I had done went smoothly and prior to each step of the procedure, the doctor explained step by step what he would do and what pain level I would feel. Totally a great experience.
It was fast paced and knowledgeable. I highly recommend it!
Dr. Meulener was great! I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist and was seen within 5 minutes. Dr. Meulener was very polite and helpful and answered any questions that I had. I highly recommend him.
Very satisfied with Dr. Meulener and staff! He was very attentive and we did not feel rushed. He took time to listen and go over everything very thoroughly with me and my daughter. Other staff was also very nice and helpful! I had to call for some information on a medication refill and my request was immediately addressed! I would highly recommend Dr. Meulener!!
Except for the long waiting time, it was an extremely pleasant visit. Doctor was knowledgable, polite and explained the whole problem and the treatment properly. Would definitely recommend Dr Mark to others.
Very courteous, helpful and concerned with my reason for the appointment. Promptly put me at ease and resolved my issue. I would recommend him to my friends and family.. top-notch, professional with a great bed-side manner.
Dr Muelener is always very attentive and seems to truly concerned with a resolution
Yes I would see him again.
It is a medical office bldg. and there is parking available in the rear. They are efficient and the boys enjoyed talking to the doctor. He was really nice, reassuring, and explained everything.
I would definitely recommend Dr. Marc Meulener.
I agree with the previous comment. The waiting time was about an hour for 5 minutes exam. It would be great if the office can let the patient know before they make the appointment.
The visit was excellent. Dr. Meulener was thorough, helpful and very nice. Wait time was short. Booking appt online was easy. We are going back to him and would definitely recommend.
I waited over an hour to be seen for 5-10 minutes. Dr. Meulener was friendly and easy to talk to but I found his explanations and directions lacking detail.
Very nice and sharp and professional!
My appointment was at 3. And I had to wait over 30 min to be seen. The whole appointment took about an hour and a half.
Quick and easy, I would definitely recommend him.
Personable, straightforward, efficient
Saw the Doctor within a minute of my appointment time! very thorough and personable, would highly recommend.
Dr. Meulener was wonderful with both of my sons. We had some other medications he had to take into consideration and he was careful with what he prescribed. He interacted exceptionally well with both boys. We were back once so far and had the same experience. His office staff is very nice. We got in very quickly. He seemed very knowledgeable. Our prescriptions were e-mailed (I guess) to the pharmacy and available for us to pick up right away. The prescriptions were also affordable which was a big deal for us! We drive really far to get there but Dr. Meulener clearly knows what he's doing and it's worth it.
He answered all of my questions and put me at ease. He is also very gentle. I would recommend him to my family and friends.
Magnífica la atención y muy buen trato gracias
He was friendly personable and helpful
Dr. Meulener is a Doctor's Doctor. As a physician myself I am keenly aware of professional shortcomings and he has none. I highly recommend him as a professional, thorough and Compassionate doctor (unfortunately rare these days!)
Great doctor and staff, professional and fast service.
Good guy, good sense of humor.
Very professional and accomodating
i felt Dr. Meulener was professional, knowledgeable, attentive and personable. I would definitely recommend him and also return to him for other skin related problems.
Very thorough and extremely kind. Highly recommended.
Convenient, smooth, easy. Thank you.
I would expect more professional consultation and explanation
Dr. Meulener was terrific! He was very kind, patient and helpful. He took the time to listen, explain everything, ask important questions, and provide appreciated rationale. I would recommend him to anyone!
Very professional. Bedside manner A+++. Explanation of diagnosis, cause and treatment explained in layman terms.
The staff was courteous and very respectful. The doctor was great!
Dr. Marc Meulener is great! He is friendly and easy to talk to. Highly recommend.
Doctor was pretty professional and asked relevant questions to know the reason for the injury and offered medicine as a temporary solution rather suggesting any treatment. We were pleased the way he interacted.
Very good experience.
Great doctor, cutting edge.
A Very profesional and carring doctor. He takes the time to review your issues and the treatment options.
GREAT EXPERIENCE.I WOULD RECOMMEND HIM TO EVERYONE.

He is very detail for the parents and made it comfortable for my daughter. Him and his staff made the visit very welcome!
Este Doctor me devolvio la alegria a mi hijo y a mi. Gracias !!!!
Dr. Marc was great. He diagnosed my rash quickly and prescribed ointment that worked like a charm. Also prescribed cream for my dry winter sensitive skin. There was no wait time and staff was great!
He was very professional, knowledgable and friendly.!
Thus far he is Great... My son was very comfortable with him
Insightful, but I was hoping for more information. I guess he wants to see if the prescription work, to see if it's something more serious.
It was terrific. Very little waiting. Assessed my issues quickly and handled them at that appointment, which I thought was just a consultation. Didnt need to come back another day!
Very. Nice & professional
He was very pleasant and took his time answering my questions and explaining.
Dr Meulener was very thorough and professional. He has a wonderful bedside manner. He is very easy to talk to and he takes his time and answers every question thoughtfully.
Dr. Marc Meulener is excellent in all ways------his knowledge and skill are utmost and his personality puts one at ease. He has an efficient and kind staff. All of my appointment needs were quickly arranged, and they all occurred right on time. I am so happy I found Dr. Meulener!
Very Professional and reliable ..
Dr, Mark made me feel very comfortable . I was so nervous but he explained everything to me and took his time . Great experience!!!:)
Very nice and profesional.
Best dermatologist I've been to! Really took the time to listen and figure out what's best for me. I've tried countless dermatologists who were in and out in 5 min and ignored questions. Not today! He was awesome!
He was very friendly, made us feel comfortable. He was very reassuring and confident with his diagnosis. His staff was very courteous.
He has restored my faith in the search for a dermatologist after only one that I loved in the past not taking my insurance. Dr. Meulener was a breath of fresh air in doctors/dentists. THANK YOU ZOCDOC..and my daughter who referred you to me.
This was my first experience with this doc and I was impressed.
