in Newark, NJ |
talked me through my issues and how to deal with the rash on my scalp.
in Woodbridge, NJ |
Excellent Doctor with a great personality! Been to him many times for different things. He is a great diagnostician!
in Fords, NJ |
I have been seen by Dr. Doctoroff on two occasions. Being a nervous patient and not a fan of needles, he was completely sympathetic, told a few jokes to help put me at ease. I understood the procedures but I asked him not to let me know exactly what he was doing, he respected my wishes. My procedures were done with little to no discomfort and me an extremely happy patient. The staff if friendly and professional. The best medical practice I have ever visited. I would definitely recommend Dr. D.

I was referred to Dr. Doctoroff by my attending physician for an exam and consultation a couple of years ago. While the exam was not rushed, it was a bit cold. I don't remember any sit down consult. I had a sample taken testing. I never received a call as to the results, having to inquire to my MD. Certainly this may have been my MD's fault too but It would have been nice to have been included in any inter office communication regarding my test results. Sign of the times maybe? all ok now!
in Colonia, NJ |
The doctor made me feel extremely rushed during visit and saw me for less than 5 minutes. I felt like he did not really listen to my concerns. He injected medication into my face very little warning and did not tell me what it was. There was also no explanation of possible consequences and now I may be dealing with a scar. If I knew, I would have opted out of the injection. Terrible experience, will not be going back.
in Cranford, NJ |
Dr. Doctoroff and the physicians assistant Amanda Tirado provided no help. They told me a regime to treat my baby's eczema and when I explained that I was already doing exactly what they told me to do, Dr. Doctoroff just said that it will work. Well I explained that 4 months of this regime hasn't been working. He was useless and was not open to other courses of action to treat eczema. I was highly disappointed.
in Kenilworth, NJ |
I highly recommend Dr. Doctoroff for any and all dermatological needs. He is an extremely experienced physician, yet one who takes the time to explain things in detail to you, and has a wealth of knowledge about treatment options and modalities. He saved my life by detecting a malignant melanoma in time for removal and complete recovery. Dr. Doctoroff is friendly, down to earth, and puts you at ease the first time you meet him. Great, courteous office staff and easy scheduling of appointments.
