Unpleasant doctor with a rude demeanor and unprofessional manner. I warn people frequently about him when they mention their need for a dermatologist. I've heard the same from many other patients. He especially doesn't like being asked any questions.

Abusive, cruel man. Was literally insulted by him—very poor bedside manner. Dubroff was dismissive of my issue which actually delayed me receiving proper care. Please, find another doctor, as i have done now. I went to the man for help and am worse off for the experience which is unacceptable.

I have gone to him for 30+ years. Wish he worked out of North Med. near my house. Wait time could be better, but the Staff keeps you informed. I have learned to wait 30 minutes before getting undressed (can be cold in exam rooms)! Doc and I seem to have similar political views.

Dr Dubroff is fabulous! Very professional, understanding, and willing to help his patients no matter what! He always listens and answers any questions I may have until I feel comfortable! His staff is the most comforting and helpful staff I have ever met at a doctors office! You may wait a while, but he is definitely worth it! Not sure what I will do when he retires!

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.

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.
