I really liked meeting Dr. Linkner. She was so thorough and very nice. They had a really nice office as well!
Loved her! Very smart and efficient- I had 3 separate issues to discuss and she covered all of them thoroughly and quickly- I was in and out in 30 min! Great medication recommendations (I've seen 3 dermatologists for acne over 5 years and she was able to control it after 1 visit!) Overall great use of time and resources, she's also very hip and easy to talk to. Cannot say enough good things about her!
Dr Linkner was great! She looked eager to investigate the issue and very very friendly. I'd definitely come back if needed, and I would also recommend her to anyone who asks :)
Office is so modern, from communications to the equipment. Highly recommend.
Great doctor. Incredibly professional and knowledgeable. If it's your first visit be sure to arrive early, regardless if you have already sent the paperwork. That being said, the staff was friendly and made sure to work around my time needs.
very efficient office, Dr Linkner was friendly, not rushed and thorough
Dr. Linkner was great, as was the office staff! Efficient and friendly, I will certainly recommend and be back in the future.
Rita was so warm, thorough, professional, and had excellent bedside manner. She lived up to all of her good reviews. And the overall office staff was friendly and efficient. I am now recommending everyone I know that needs a dermatologist to go to this office!
Dr. Linkner was very informative and friendly. Very easy to talk to about any issues concerning my skin. Quick and to the point.
If you're having any skin issues whatsoever, go see Dr. Linkner this instant! Her staff is efficient and polite, the office atmosphere is very pleasant, and the Doctor herself I cannot recommend highly enough. She helped me with my adult hormonal acne - the products and medications she recommended made it go away within WEEKS. After years of awful stress-related eruptions, my skin is glowing and I no longer have to hide it under layers of concealer. Don't waste your money on anything over-the-counter, just make an appointment with Dr. Linkner and she will help you fix whatever is ailing you!
Dr. Linkner was very nice and she answered all of my questions. I was also able to communicate with her via text messages which I appreciated.
I went to her for a second opinion after having a jarringly abrupt diagnosis at a walk-in clinic. She gave me a much more accurate diagnosis and specific treatment plan. She made me feel at ease, overall a very positive experience.
She is fabulous !
She's extremely knowledgeable and professional, I'm so happy that I chose her and the practice the knew exactly how to help me. The appointment was efficient and through
I highly recommend Dr. Linkner. She was extremely professional, thorough, and informative about every step she took during my appointment.
She was great! Very informative and did a good job being realistic about my issues and concerns. I was overwhelmed with the number of touch points before my visit, especially with the internal system they used, Klara. But once I was at the office I felt like my concerns were heard and answered thoroughly.
Friendly, great eye contact, personable and kind. Made me feel at ease and yet explained in great detail which showed me she was highly knowledgable and experienced.
Straight to the point and addressed all of my questions! She was so kind :)
Informative and very pleasant
Dr. Linkner knows her stuff! Made my feel very comfortable and was thorough in her examination (I was there for yearly mole check). Efficient and professional.
Very professional operation going on. Super cool, hip waiting room. I like the vibe. Dr. Linker was great!
Doctor is very good, nice, professional and clean modern atmosphere. Will be back.
Dr. Linkner was great! She saw me right away. I felt a bit uncomfortable that someone was standing in the room with her while I stood there completely naked for my exam. I wish I was warned ahead of time. But overall a great experience. Her office has some strict paperwork protocol for new patients, but once you get through that it's smooth sailing. I will go back again. Everyone was very friendly and helpful and Dr. Linkner made me feel very comfortable.
Excellent experience. Clean office -- very short wait time. Dr. Linkner came off as very knowledgable and she was direct and professional. Highly recommend.
I felt very comfortable and confident in Dr. Linkner's services. She provided me with medication that she knew would help me, and also made sure I was receiving the best prices on my medication. Looking forward to getting back in a few weeks!
This was my first time seeing Dr. Linkner and she was great. Very nice, took her time to address all my questions and make sure I was happy before I left. Highly recommend.
Wonderful, kind and thorough. Very glad I found her.
This was my first time getting a full-body screening and it was quite positive! Dr. Linkner was very nice and personable, and I felt comfortable throughout. The office is beautiful and clean. FYI, though, this office doesn't bill any service to insurance companies as "preventative."
Dr. Linkner knew her stuff!! Super efficient office, welcoming staff. Overall great experience.
She was thorough and listened to any of my concerns considering a relatively full family history. I would whole-heartedly return to her as my go-to dermatologist. Thanks for a great visit!

Great service, no wait time, and they knew how to pronounce my name (which very few people can).
She's a true professional and so knowledgeable. She made me feel completely comfortable throughout my entire my visit and the cosmetic treatment I was having done. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking anti-aging procedures.
Made error in prescription. First denied it and then fixed it only too late. Never apologized or took any responsibility
Dr. Linkner is excellent. She is knowledgable and patient. She is well versed on everything from moles and cancer screening to the more cosmetic elective procedures. Also her skin is awesome and a total inspiration!!!
Exceptional experience. I was greeted and taken care of right away, seen promptly, staff and Dr. Linkner were very attentive, and I left with my skin feeling great.
She was easily the best doctor I've come into contact with. You feel as if you're taking to your best friend, so knowledgable and easy to talk to. Obsessed!!
I had a really great experience and was done within an hour. Dr. Linkner answered all my questions, was incredibly personable and understanding. I felt that she has a genuine care for her patient's health and well-being. Definitely coming back and would recommend to others!
Great doctor. Almost left the appointment after I waited so long and was pretty unhappy about that. She was such a good doctor I will definitely return despite this wait. Just leave yourself extra time if you make an appointment.
Dr. Linkner was professional, accurate, pleasant, prompt, and quick. Great experience.
Excellent bedside manner, quick, meticulous, thorough. I'm delighted.
