"Wait time was very short both in the outer office and in the treatment room. All personnel I spoke with were respectful and kind. I felt like everyone, especially Dr. Metzinger, really listened to me and addressed related physical concerns accordingly. She’s very knowledgeable and patiently answered all questions I had. Her recommended treatment plan is already showing promise. I’m very fortunate to have been referred to a physician that I have confidence in and that treats patients with such care."
"(I NEVER HAVE TIME TO WRITE REVIEWS, I’M A SINGLE WORKING MOM WITH A SPECIAL NEEDS SON THAT I ALSO HOMESCHOOL) Thank you so much for such an AMAZING experience! My first time visit and I LOVED the display of courteousness of every office staff member. It started immediately upon arrival and in every interaction from registering as a new patient, to calling me in for my consult and the intake before speaking with the doctor. Dr. Metzinger’s bedside manner was AMAZING and I haven’t had this kind of experience with any doctor in YEARS! The exit staff was also EXTREMELY courteous as well and very attentive. I loved that the staff member acknowledged me while she received a phone call, but as soon as I came to her desk to schedule my follow up, she politely said to the person on the other end of the phone, “I have a patient, let me call you right back.” The level of customer service and courtesy displayed by this office is exemplary and I would recommend this office to anyone who is seeking a dermatologist for their medical and cosmetic needs. Thank you Sonterra Dermatology for the amazing experience and I plan on being a longtime patient for all my dermatology needs."
