I have gone to Dr. Rinek for years and he is the best! Staff is courteous and fun, as well as professional.
After being a little unhappy with my dermatologist my primary doctor referred me to Dr. Rinek. I am please to say I have seen him several times now and am very happy with my whole experience. He is very knowledgeable and explains things thoroughly. I also find it a pleasant experience that my appointments run on schedule if not early when I arrive so.

Seeing Dr. Rinek is always a pleasure. He's well educated, witty, and very concise. I also feel that he always spends enough time with me; he's not a "doorway dermatologist" who barely looks at you before making a diagnosis. He's also willing to answer any questions you have related to your care without an air of impatience or that you're wasting his time.

I have been seeing Dr. Rinek for many years. He has taken care of both my husband and I and our two children. We have always been very satisfied with the care we have received from him over the years. We trust his opinion in all things related to our skin care and are confident that he will use the latest techniques and methods to deal with any problems that we have. He is kind and caring as well.

Got right in at appointed time, addressed my concerned areas, would definitely recommend him for treatment. Thank you!
in East Lansing, MI |
Dr. Rinek is very knowledgeable; he can glance at a skin lesion, and knows right away if it should be of concern or not. He states the medical term and then explains it in plain English. Dr. Rinek relates well to his patients. He is personable, but also very efficient. I think he has his technical staff well-organized to assist him at the start of the office visit, and in taking notes regarding his diagnosis.
Thank you for the positive feedback, 5 star rating and taking the time to post a review.
