Don't rely on these negative reviews. My visit with Dr. Dropkin and his staff was exceptional. He met with me one-on-one in his office prior to the exam, gave me plenty of time, asked good questions. He has a very nice manner, not at all like what these other people are saying. His staff was friendly and the office was efficient. No complaints at all.

Cold, bitter and nasty. Heaven help you if you are overweight. He will ignore why you came to see him and make everything about that. Stay away from this guy please.

I miscaried at 7 weeks. Dr Dropkin told me I should have D&C, and that if I didn't I could get an infection and be rendered sterile. I felt pressured so I agreed. I was taken into the next room & with no sedation given the procedure. I was screaming and passing out with pain. 10 mins post procedure I was forced to leave as they said they needed the room. My husband had carry me out of the fire exit to the car as I was barely conscious. I will register a formal complaint.

The doctor gets things done and even though he can seem rude he is professional and personal. The nurse with the dark hair allison davies is rude and I dont recommend anyone seeing her. She and and her assistants are not professional and talk about other medical conditons people have and I dont trust them.

Dr. Dropkin has been my gynecologist for over 25 years. I have found him to be medically conservative, responsive, and an excellent diagnostician. He was right there for me through a difficult pregnancy. Very professional and personal.
