This office definitely deserves the high rating that they have here. I had my first appointment yesterday, and usually going to doctors makes me incredibly nervous because I have a fair number of health problems and don’t want more bad news. The office was incredibly clean and modern. The staff were so friendly and polite that I immediately felt at ease. The doctor was excellent. She was really very sensitive and compassionate and helpful. Overall, rarely can someone say that a medical experience was great, but in this case, I can: I highly recommend them if you need a dermatologist. I am so happy that they were accepting new patients and I managed to get in with them.

Albeit 5 stars might indicate perfection, I feel four stars is unjust. These girls are just incredible. They go way beyond the standard for helping me take care of my skin health. They hit their appointments; they manage their referrals; and they really put forth the effort to make me comfortable with the care I was getting when it was beyond their office’s capabilities. My only criticism is that they don’t have great referrals, but that’s hardly them that is to blame for this; Hawaii is underserved in healthcare. But they are Professional with a capital P. I feel like the Google reviews really got it right on this one. A fantastic addition to the Hawaiian health community that serves to elevate our standard of living. I am very thankful for these girls! Marne knows Aloha.

I can’t even say enough good things about this office! From the doctor who has helped me both medically and cosmetically to the aesthetician, assistants and front desk. Honestly can say I love them all! I had an unfortunate experience at another medi-spa that left me with permanent damage and Dr. Marne was incredibly compassionate and helpful. After repeated 100% positive experiences, I brought my elderly father, which I had concerns about a suspicious growth, and she treated and also found a surgeon to do the deeper work he needed. She honestly could be responsible for saving his life, as he was very stubborn about needing treatment. I am beyond grateful! In addition I am a professional bikini competitor and judged on my skin in addition to musculature and she keeps me looking my best. I’m constantly getting shocked responses when I tell people my age. Thank you to the whole team at Mahinakealo, you all are excellence in practice.

I have been a patient of Marne’ for many years, and she has always treated me with respect, honesty and compassion.  Several years ago I developed plantar warts, in part due to medication that lowered my immune system.  At the same time, I developed a foot and nail fungus due to my hyperhidrosis (excess sweating).  I went to another doctor here in Hawaii and 3 doctors on the Mainland, and she was the one doctor who got it right.  The warts were very painful and took a long time to heal.  Marne’ never gave up on me, and gave my me guidance to make sure I did not spread the warts.
She truly cares, and I feel very comfortable in trusting her judgment.

Marne is one of the most skilled, and knowledgeable medical professionals, I have ever had the honor of being under her care.  My professional career was a Pharmaceutical sales Representative, I have dealt with hundreds of practitioners, over my career. Marne stands out as one of the best. She takes a true interest in her patients, and is a pleasure to deal with.  I have been treated for a stubborn Dermatology condition for at least 50 years, much of it in the NY metropolitan area.

The result I’ve gotten from Marne’s treatment, have been second to none. Marne keeps up with the latest and most efficacious procedures and pharmaceuticals.

I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
