Dr Linkner was referred to me by a coworker in the beauty industry 3 years ago and I’m forever thankful toher. Dr Linkner put me at ease when I first saw her for a suspicious mole that was growing quickly. It turned out to be benign after lab test and she removed it without and pain or discomfort. Her professionalism and knowledge about skin care and skin health is amazing. She’s also so personable and calming when it comes to sensitive skin issues. I’ve recommended her to anyone I know looking for a dermatologist and they’ve all have the same wonderful experience.

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!
