I have been a patient for over five years and insulin dependent diabetic for forty years. Under his care I am now off insulin and managed with diet and meds. I am much healthier and have learned much. He is very knowledgeable and up to date plus wiling to take the time needed to teach me how to manage my diabetes while at the same time taking into consideration heart and kidney issues. He and his staff are very professional, yet friendly and caring.

My internist wasn’t helping me. I had to get recommendations on my own to find an endocrinologist. Dr R Oiknine was recommended to me from the front desk of another endocrinologist office. That was impressive. I made an appointment and was very impressed. He is very smart, chooses his words wisely, so you don’t panic, professional and definitely good at treating your problem. My husband who is in the medical profession was also impressed. That says a lot

The absolute worst. I would not send my pet rat to this place. I went to Dr. Oiknine and he was arrogant and his staff is flat out rude. When asked to have my records mailed to me they said we don't do that, you have to access it on a computer. I don't have a computer. This place is beyond bad news.

Only had two Endocrinologists so not a grand fiend of comparison but I know a caring physician when I find one. Dr. Oiknine is both professional and caring with a good wit and nature. I highly recommend this doctor!

Recently switched from one endocrinologist to another. So glad I did. What a great team, from the front desk to the diabetes educator. Dr. Oiknine? Calm as calm can be. Great - really.

I have been a diabetic for 46 years and Dr. Oiknine is one of the most amazing diabetic specialists I have ever met. I didn't realize that I had the start of some kidney problems, never where discovered until Dr. Oiknine, now I have such a much better handle on so many things that are vital to me staying healthy.
