I like that Dr. Mayer really listens when we talk and understands that I don't want to just be loaded up on meds to mask problems with my health. He also consults and reads notes from my other doctor which I greatly appreciate.

Dr. Mayer is excellent; I feel like I am his only client. He is so interested in findings out causes of what triggered the changes in my blood results and is willing to investigate my condition further. Dr Mayer shares with me what he has done before we met, the other doctors he consulted with, and the concerns he has about my case. He discusses my condition with me with the data at hand, sharing the computer screen to show me the lab test results, the trends, and what is the next step in his treatment plan. He answers all my questions candidly based on scientific evidence, depth of knowledge and experience.

I went to Dr. Mayer for a second opinion after feeling like Dr. Cheryl Wright did not listen or review her notes on my health. He was very attentive, answered all my questions and made me feel he was invested in my health. I was very satisfied with my visit.
