What People Say About Dr. Rachel Ivker, MD

My son suffered from terrible acne when he saw Dr Ivker. She put him on Accutane at 40mg and in 2 weeks his lips swelled up to the point that he was very self concious. She refused to prescribe a steroid and would not lower the dosage. He recently started taking accutane again after years of refusing to try it again and this new doc assured me that we can start as low as 10mg and would give him a steroid if needed. Her inflexible and insensitive personality negatively impacted my son’s life.

It took me a trip or two before I really got to know Dr. Ivker but once I did, I realized what a great Doctor she is and I really like her. She has given me the most detailed and thorough skin exams I've ever had and I'm going on my 4th year seeing her. Dr. Ivker is so much more thorough that my former Dermatologist was. Dr. Ivker's skills and experience are of the highest caliber. I learned the hard way, don't wear make-up on the day I'm seeing her or it'll be coming off with alcohol. LOL

I am very impressed with Dr Ifker. She is very knowledgable and tells it like it is - which is exactly what you need from a doctor. I would highly recommend her to any friends that need skin services .

Dr Ivker was polite but distant. Did not want to discuss what is causing my condition or alternative treatments. Seemed anxious to leave. Treatment she recommended is working only marginally. I will go for followup with her and see if our relationship and my condition improves.
