Patient Comments (5)
in Albany Ny |
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.

When my fiancé comes home crying after her appointment because this doctor basically told her she's fat going to get any number of illnesses and then die young at any time.....we are done!!!! Would never let this man touch my fiancé again!!! FYI she's healthier than myself!!!!
Latham, NY |
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.
Cleveland, OH |
Dr. Dropkin delivered my son c section. He was not my ob gyn but was the dr. On call. I will be switching to his practice. He was amazing, made me feel calm and confident in the c section.
