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.

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.

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
