I have gone to him for over 30 years. He is smart and good and the best!

Dr. Dubroff knows what he's doing and will treat you quickly and precisely. It's obvious he has a ton of experience and can be trusted with diagnoses. However, the experience with Dr. Dubroff can be unsettling. He comes off as abrasive from time to time. He may talk politics at you endlessly, but cut you off and rush you if you ask medical questions to try and understand your skin conditions better. He is not patient, and he sees your questions as an offensive sign that you don't trust him.

Dr. Dubroff is very knowledgeable, but he has very poor interpersonal skills. After diagnosing me with skin cancer, I had many questions. He very rudely told me I didn't need to ask questions, and berated me to the point that I started crying (which I have never done in a doctor's office). I told him that he was being very hard on me, to which he responded "You're being hard on ME!" Extremely unprofessional. Also, be prepared to wait at least an hour or two before your appointment.

Rude and condescending staff! Dr is chronically late, disrespectful of patient and I don't like him at all! I'm searching for a new dermatologist as I've had enough of his flippant and disrespectful bedside manner.

Without a doubt, the creepiest doctor I've ever seen in my life. I used to have to go see him as a kid. Made odd comments about women's ages. Very dismissive of skin conditions I had. Used very invasive methods. Burned some warts off with liquid nitrogen, caused lots of scarring and chronically painful nerve damage. My pediatrician saw it and was appalled, and recommended a strong salicylic acid which cleared everything in a month. His methods are dated and barbaric. 4 hour wait times.

After going to another dermatologist several times and making no progress, I switched to Dr. Dubroff. He knew on the first visit what the most effective treatment should be and he helped me immensely. I would definitely and highly recommend him.

This doctor was horrible. Not only was I waiting for a total of 2 hours...but he spoke to me condescendingly, and disrespectfully. You should feel comfortable to ask your doctor questions and give your concerns, however I left feeling worse/more unsure about my condition when I left than when I got there in the first place. I broke down in tears once I got home. His nurses were also extremely rude. He needs to RETIRE. Find a NICE and GOOD derm.

i have seen Dr. Dubroff for different reasons over several years, and every time he has been excellent. He is a very professional, caring doctor and takes time to make sure everything is understood. He was recommended to me by a doctor, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
