The rudest doctor I have ever met in my life. I have seen her 3 times and each time was progressively worse. Condescending and insulting this doctor has no manners and the worst bed side manner of any doctor I have ever met.

Review for Dr. Ekstein

During this crisis, I think Dr Marshall could be more helpful regarding advice for patients facing possibly covid 19. For example, offering things like MEDs to alleviate discomfort and not just telling us to self quarantine! Also there could be other illnesses besides covid 19 that require help.

Dr Kaufman understood exactly what I needed. He provided advice and was completely open an honest regarding what I wanted compared to what would actually work for me. He’s caring nature and follow up was an added bonus. I am over the moon with my tummy tuck.

This individual is mentally challenged and definitely needs a psychiatric evaluation before dealing with patients and practicing medicine. Incompetent, extremely rude, loud, crazy doctor. Stay away. He should not be allowed dealing with people. Period.
