Although I have only seen Dr. Rooney twice, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her. She has a very wide breadth and depth of medical knowledge and is very trustworthy. She is extremely clear in her explanations and rationale. She listened to my concerns and addressed them professionally and competently.

I left a message on prescription refill. Going back and forth with them. Dr. Rooney couldn't care less I was about to miss pills THREE PILLS. Took her sweet time refilling them. Finally, after going back and forth she renews them. I'm late 3 days. I notice AGAIN. I'm not going to have enough pills till my appointment in June. So calling again for a refill and was declined because i was supposed to be there in February! I have an appointment in JUNE! Pills will be missed. She has ZERO concern!

gave me birth control implant that was too large for me, refused me an ultrasound for ovarian cysts after making an appointment a month in advance for an ultrasound, is very rough and inconsiderate to my concerns, and couldn't come yo a consensus as to what was causing excruciating pain for me for months, and can't seem to be able to show up for appointments at the scheduled time, always about an hour late. I've been to her 4 times and never plan on returning

I'm seeing posts about "no eye contact" and "being abrupt"... Dr. Rooney is not your friend, she is your Dr. I would highly recommend her. She saved me and my daughter. Yes, she is a straight shooter and does not beat around the bush. That's what I want in a Dr. I spent 6 weeks in the hospital prior to delivery and saw MANY doctors. She is the one who diagnosed me correctly and gave me the right care.

Dr. Rooney is an excellent doctor, very thorough and precise. She does not make eye contact a lot, but I found her of good humor and very professional. She explained without judgment and was conservative in her approach to labor/delivery/C-section. My first baby was over 9lbs and I did not have a C-section (which was what I wanted for my birth plan). She coached me through it and I am forever grateful. She never rushed me out and would answer any ques. Don't miss out on a very very good doctor.

Dr. Rooney was not my regular doctor at first but I started seeing both her and Dr, Maniu (who is also great) during my second pregnancy. I always thought Dr. Rooney was good, def spends a lot of time with you and I have been going to their practice for over 5 years. She delivered my son which turned out to be very difficult for both of us (lol) as I was violently refusing a csection but she did what she does and I had him as I wanted. I think she is very good and very smart.

She is HORRIBLE. As someone else wrote stay far, far away. She is incompetent, rude, abrupt, nasty and unprofessional. She makes no eye contact whatsoever, no bedside manner at all. A smile would be nice to see. How anyone goes to her on a regular basis is beyond my comprehension. Next time when I have an emergency, and my regular doctor (who is magnificent by the way, Dr. Michael Faust), I will go to the emergency room. I think I would get better care there.
