The exam was fine, but I thought it was weird that she spent most of the time trying to sell me on products, fillers and convincing me that my freckles could be removed if they "bothered" me. This place blurs theline too much between a cosmetic practice and an actual medical practice. Steer clear of the sales pitch.

Rita is friendly and thorough. She does make recommendations for procedures, such as vaccinations, that are unnecessary which makes it feel more like a sales transaction than a doctors appointment.

Dr Linkner is the best derm I have ever seen. For both general health derm needs and cosmetic needs. I recently saw her for botox and had no idea injections could be so easy and painless. She is honest with herrecommendations for cosmetics and so meticulous and gentle in her technique. I really trust her recommendations and would not see anyone else. I can’t wait to return!

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 hormonalacne - 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!

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 5years 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!
