Patient Comments (5)
in Nyack, NY |
Dr. Ratner is absolutely brilliant. She makes you feel safe. She knew how scared I was, and was reassuring and sympathetic. She kept me informed every step of the way and talked me through the hour-long surgery so I never felt just like "the patient" but a human being. I had surgery on my face and the wound is already healing amazingly well. As for her nursing staff, every single one of them was kind, funny, and informative. I could not recommend this doctor more highly.

Very calming kind and professional. Would highly recommend. Scar has healed better after 3 weeks than any other scar I have ever had. Would most definaty use Dr. Ratner again and highly recommend. Everyone I came across in office could not have been nicer.
New York, NY |
Although she may be technically competent, she has a personality disorder. No bedside manner. Does not fully give information on what to expect and appears annoyed afterwards if you ask questions. I felt as if I were a part on an assembly line, not a patient. There are many Mohs surgeons in NYC, I found another one for subsequent skin cancer surgery and am pleased...but I suggest you run, don't walk away, from this schizo. The other factors you track are nice but this is more important!
in New York, NY |
She's a fine doctor, but she offers ZERO post-op information. I would like to have been told to expect to have a black eye the next day. For another procedure, I should have been told that the incision would take more than TWO YEARS to heal completely.
New York, NY |
The doctor's misjudgement made it necessary to repeat a surgical excision. Should not have been necessary if appropriate margins had been observed the first time. Staff was friendly, but the assistant who removed sutures missed two or three which caused considerable discomfort for a very long month.
