Dr. Mayer's Patient Reviews

"I’ve been a patient for many years and Dr Mayer has taken superb care of my skin."
(Health Grades - Verified Patient)

"Without being melodramatic, over 20 years of being treated by Dr. Mayer I figure she has saved my life 3 times by early detecting malanomas. She has eyes like a hawk but with a very relaxed style. A real professional."

"Dr. Mayer is the best! She knows her stuff when it comes to diagnosing a skin problem I've gotten an appointment for emergencies with no wait time when I arrived. Her staff at the front desk are always very nice and helpful. Clean and professional atmosphere. You will love her."
