Leading With Expertise: Get to Know Dr. Meredith Reimer

We’re thrilled to introduce Dr. Meredith Reimer, board certified dermatologist who will be serving patients at the Macedonia location and overseeing her expert team. Dr. Reimer shares Optima Dermatology’s core value of treating every patient the way we would want our friends and family to be treated and has applied that approach to her patient care throughout her career. 

We are confident patients and providers in the Macedonia area will enjoy working with Dr. Reimer and will find incredible value in her expert care. 

We recently had the opportunity to sit down with Dr. Reimer and learn a little bit more about her, and we’re excited to share our Q&A so you can get to know her too!

Q: Where did you go to college? 

A: I went to college at Northwestern University in Chicago and I studied biomedical engineering. I always knew that I wanted to go to medical school and pursue medicine as a career. I then went to medical school at The Ohio State University. I was interested in lots of different specialties and didn’t decide to pursue dermatology until I did my first dermatology rotation as a 4th-year medical student.

Q: What made you decide to pursue your career in dermatology? 

A: I chose dermatology because I loved the diverse nature of our patient care and patient interaction. I also love seeing patients of all ages and genders. 

Q: What is your number one tip when it comes to taking care of your skin? 

A: Sun protection!

Q: If there was one thing you wish your patients knew about you, what would it be?

A: I have 4 kids (ages 2-14), so most of my free time is with them! They are a busy crew with lots of activities and sports. Outside of my kids, I try to keep active, spend time with friends and family, travel (during NON-Covid times!), and read.

Q: What is your favorite aspect of being a dermatologist?

A: I love forming relationships with patients and their families. One of my favorite parts of practicing is that I get to know a patient’s whole family, often spanning many generations.

Q: What is your approach to treating your patients?

A: I try very hard to form a collaborative and trusting  relationship with patients
