Dr. Rovner is the most caring and patient sweetheart of a person. He is one of those rare finds. Even if you have to wait to see him, he's worth the wait.

Spent time answering every single question. I have seen him twice with less than a 10 minute wait.The Dr./ his staff are sweet caring people. He is not arrogant he is confident, that made me at ease. I have seen several Dr. who just pass off my pain as "it is your back nothing to be done". His diagnosis has helped me alleviate some of the pain without pills and by having my PT focus on his diagnosis beyond my discs. This Dr. is gentile, down to earth and he knows what he is talking about.
Office staff is discourteous and rude. If you need something done, you'll have to call for a month straight. They will blow you off. This office is a nightmare to deal with when you need anything at all. I don't know if any doctor is worth this amount of trouble

Truly a genuine physician who is honest about treatment approach and condition. A gentleman in a field of unfortunately, fewer. Sophie and his office staff also are most helpful and want to help you get better. Dr Rovner and everyone, thank you for the care and piece of mind.

Run, don't walk, to the nearest exit. I was referred by another doctor who was retiring for Botox for migraines. Made appt 90 days in advance. They cancelled the night before. Never preauthorized the Botox. Rude staff. So discourteous, clueless, and unapologetic it was flabbergasting. I was left without my treatment, which will take at least 30 days to get set up with someone else. Serious medical danger was created. I wouldn't touch this doctor with a ten foot pole.
We are very sorry for this miscommunication between office and you the patient. Our first priority in this office is our patient care. With you being a first time patient no office can order medication without being seen first in the office . We follow insurance policy as to obtaining medications. When getting medication such as the one you are requesting office notes are sometimes asked for by insurance company to why this medication is needed this is why you are asked to meet with us first.

Dr Rovner has been my Dr. now for over 7yrs now, my mom has had him longer. He is an awesome Dr. because he will listen to you and care about what you are experiencing pain wise, he wants to know, because without your input he can't help you. He's caring and soft spoken. I love having a caring Dr. Like him, and I appreciate all he does for me as well. I've learned a lot about my illnesses and he works real hard to help me manage them. Without him I'd suffer worse, with him, I suffer less.
in Rochester, NY |
Hospitalized at RGH for neurologic issues.The doctor was highly arrogant.I questioned if he read my primary care's notes and he did not have answers he should have if he had.He wanted to discharge me even though I was having seizure like episodes without answers. The doctor dismissed my concerns in an unprofessional tone and cut me off multiple times. He had the attitude that a patient wasn't part of the care.removed from care per me and my primary.Shouted at me. Nurses disagreed with him too.
