I went to Dr Rothenberg for over two years and never felt he helped me. He barely took the time to even talk with me. I always felt I was disrespected and always left with questions .

He is an excellent physician and I felt that, FINALLY, there was someone to help me. He even fought my insurance company to get me the medication I needed.
in Youngstown, OH |
I have seen Dr. for about 3 years. He is always very helpful and takes time with me. He goes over all details with me. He pays attention to all my problems and tries very hard to fix them for me. He is a very kind and good doctor. Mary Ann Tobin

I have seen Dr Rothenburg for many years for my Psoriatic Arthritis. He "inherited" me when my beloved Dr Toth switched to pediatric rheumatology. He's not got the greatest bedside manner, and sometimes makes some off the cuff comments that don't thrill me, but he has always listened to me, taken a good amount of time at our appointments, and followed through with problems and questions I have.
Youngstown, OH |
Dr. Rothenberg was very rude and sarcastic. I felt as if he was mocking me about even being in his office. I left his office and promptly looked for another rheumatologist in Pittsburgh.

My best friend has gone to this guy before and he's not a great doctor at all. He speeds through appointments, is rude and sarcastic, and is very vague. He doesn't know how to explain lab work or make it easy for the patient to understand what's going on with their own body. I'm sure this guy sped through medical school, too. My best friend deserves a better doctor, and so does everyone else. Please, STAY AWAY FROM THIS GUY. You won't get any answers. Go to another doctor, he's a waste of time.

After several office visits I would never recommend Dr. Rothenberg. Everything that my family member and i suggested was not even taken into consideration or explained. Also many questions that we had asked were left unanswered.
in Youngstown, OH |
Dr Rothenberg has been treating me for rheumatoid arthritis for the past 6 years and he has helped me so much. He always answers the questions that I ask and he listens to me when I'm having a bad flare up. Because of him I am able to function from day to day. He's a great doctor.
in Cortland, OH |
I was impressed with this doctor. He took the time to listen and actually did an exam. He was very professional and made me feel at ease.
in warren, OH |
He came into the room, never introduced himself or spoke to us directly. I felt that we were not people but something to read about on his computer that he never took his eyes off from. Even though another physician diagnosed an unrelated condition, he stated that it wasn't diagnosed. No bedside manners.....should work research, not with people.
