The worst bedside manner ever. She and nurse kept up a conversation the entire time of my surgery, discussing what dresses they were going to wear to a party. Mohs surgery left the worst scar on my face that a cosmetic surgeon had to repair.
This is a warm and welcoming professional office. Dr. Weinkle is one of, if not the most generous and caring doctors I've been to see. Her knowledge, experience, compassion, bubbly personality, positive attitude and generous spirit keeps me coming back. One does not feel rushed, but important and cared for. Her staff is professional, very kind, and accommodating to the patients needs. Highly, highly recommend!

Dr. Weinkle combines compassion with knowledge. She listens well, and adjusted my medication. She is warm as well as competent. I feel fortunate to have her as my dermatologist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Weinkle's for ten years because she is by the far the best dermatologist in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. She truly cares about each individual patient and is willing to give of her time in answering any questions you may have as a patient. I also admire and respect Dr. Weinkle because she is constantly presenting and teaching other physicians, not only in the United States, but also in other countries as well. You will not find a more knowledgeable and caring doctor

Dr. Weinkle, Lyn, & the entire staff is so wonderful. They treated me so kindly. Answered all my questions. Dr. Weinkle is so knowledgeable. The best office experience.
in Bradenton, FL |
Dr. Weinkel is top notch! My mother, sister, & myself all entrust her with our faces (never mind yearly screenings too.) Susan has an amazingly aesthetic eye, classy demeanor, & executes whatever is needed conservatively.
Bradenton, FL |
I have a lot of respect for Dr Weinkle. She has a lot of experience and always seems to be on the cutting edge of the latest procedures and newest medical information, all in the best interest of her patients. I completely trust Dr Weinkle as she has a gentle hand when treating patients and is very kind and caring. Her staff are just the best, and always make you feel like they genuinely care and are there for you.

It was a pleasure being treated by someone that is as worldly known and as knowledgeable about her line of work as she is. I had my lips enhanced and a few fillers and have been very satisfied with the outcome. I do not look like I had anything done which is what I like most. She was very conscientious to what my concerns were.

I have been to dermatologists all across the country, including those "famous" ones you hear about or watch on television. Dr. Weinkle outperforms them all - and she is really, really nice. She spends time with all her patients which is a rarity in this day in age and truly loves what she does. It shows. My face has never looked better. Her staff is incredibly knowledgeable, kind and understanding. I travel over two hours each way just to see Dr. Weinkle and it is totally worth it.

Dr. Weinkle is a wonderful Dr. She has a great bedside manner. She really listened to what I had to say and what I needed. She has one of the best staffs. Everyone is so awesome. I walked out VERY HAPPY!! I will absolutely go back.

I went to Dr Weinkle for Botox. This was my first time. I liked that she did not try to talk me into more then I needed. I am extremely pleased with the results and would highly recommend her. Only derm I will see from now on.
Bradenton, FL |
I went to Dr. Weinkle to have some filler injected into my lips and I am so pleased with the results! I have always had a fuller bottom lip and smaller upper lip but now they are perfect pair. I have had so many compliments from co-workers and even complete strangers. I highly recommend Dr. Weinkle for all of your cosmetic needs, she does amazing work!

This is an update to my Aug. 19, 2016 review. Dr. Weinkle contacted me about my being dissatisfied and graciously offered another visit free of charge. She asked me if I wanted to disrobe, which I did, and she checked my whole body and I feel that now I had a complete checkup.
in Sarasota, FL |
I had 2 services from Dr. Weinkle. First, I had a full-body check for skin cancer.The examination was cursory, completed in less than 3 minutes. Dr. Weinkle did not check many parts of my body. She then suggested very expensive fillers over several visits. I decided to start with a botox treatment. I have had botox from other doctors. Dr. Weinkle's botox treatment was over-priced, took 10 days to take effect, and lasted a very short time. I will NEVER go to Dr. Susan Weinkle again.
