Rutherford, NJ |
My 9 year old son had a bad gash on his arm that required plastic surgery care in the ER. Dr. Rabinowitz was a great blessing to us this day. He served as a wonderful (calming) doctor that attended to my son with excellent bedside demeanor and excellent medical care. His practice followed up with weekly check-ups on my son for no added fee and the rest of his staff was incredibly pleasant and attentive. I highly recommend Dr. Rabinowitz!

I'm a 55 year old woman, suffered with horrible bags under my eyes. I tried to hide them, but you can't hide what you see each and everyday. I made an appointment to meed Dr. Rabinowitz, I can tell you he walked in the room and looked right into my eyes, I felt relief at that moment. He was just amazing he showed me with a mirror what he was going to do. I just knew I was going to see ME again. Surgery went well as the days go on it's better than i imagined. He is a very caring Doctor. A 10

Could not have been any luckier to be granted Dr Rabinowitz and his partners after an accident left my right arm mutilated. I was in a bad motorcycle wreck where i was told that there was no chance to save my right hand. Now its still a big blur but miraculously woke up to see it still there. Being one hell of a year later exactly, he has been with me every step of the way and he is truly the one surgeon who makes you feel that he will everything he can for you. Could not be anymore thankful.

I had been to two other doctors without relief. Immediately upon seeing Dr. Rabinowitz he quickly diagnosed the issue and treated me. Within days I had relief, upon my follow up 3 weeks later, I was back to 95%. His presence is calming, confident and most of all he clearly knows what he is doing. I would not hesitate to recommend him to family and friends. Very glad I was told about him.

My son and I met Dr. Rabinowitz at Valley Hospital's emergency department.. In June, my son needed stitches very close to his eye. Dr. Rabinowitz was on call and presented with the best bedside manner I've experienced in a long time. He actually spoke to my son directly and explained everything he was going to do before the doctor even touched an instrument. My son's anxieties were immediately relieved with Dr. R's demeanor. Office staff is very helpful. I would recommend him over and over.

When my toddler got her thumb slammed in a door hinge, I didn't know how serious it was. Upon taking her to the ER, I learned that she needed stitches, as half of her nail bed was coming out. Dr. Rabinowitz came in to HackensackUMC pediatric ER from home on the weekend, and was very warm, reassuring, and professional. I learned that her nail may have never grown right without stitches. Three months later and the nail bed looks perfect-- you can't tell she was injured at all. I am so grateful!

My wife, Nancy, had to have her small toe amputated. Dr. Rabinowitz did a wonderful job repairing her wound. You have to look twice and count her toes to know that one is missing. Dr. Rabinowitz is comforting, reassuring and pays attention to every detail. He gave my wife the confidence that she needed going into her surgery. His genuine concern and post surgery follow up are remarkable. His staff is second to none. I would strongly recommend Dr. Rabinowitz.
I have recommended Dr. Rabinowitz to a friend and her experience was wonderful also! I would highly recommend Dr. Rabinowitz.
