A very long wait (about an hour) for a very short stretch of attention from the doctor (about 7 minutes). He is OK competent but not amazing ... Seem to be winding down his practice.

The wait time was short. I felt very respected by the doctor himself. We had a quick intelligent discussion in which I presented my case. I appreciate that he was not condescending and he did not waste my time or money.I left with what I'm hoping to be the solution to my persistant acne.

I saw Dr. Rockoff for two issues; one, which was straightforward, was not resolved, and the other was not handled correctly. He was dismissive and wasted my time.

I had the appointment as 9am, but the office had it as 8:45am, but in any case I was REALLY early because I estimated the T time conservatively. I got in to see him immediately and was done even before 8:45am.I've been going to him for years, and his bedside manner makes skin cancer exams less icky than they can be.

I do have to warn people that he's got a rather dry sense of humor, so I don't think that he's for everyone. My visits have always been very quick and he's always been very pleasant. The facilities are also alittle outdated but it looks like the staff do a good job of keeping it tidy.

Fast friendly staff. I have gone to several dermatologists in the last year, hoping to get my problem solved here. The Dr. assured me right away if she couldn't help me she knows others who can do either way I will have some relief.

Busy but efficient office. Didn't wait more than 15 minutes in the waiting room and no more than 10 once in an exam room. Diagnosis was fast and confident. Treatment was just as fast. He then took his time providing athorough and sincere explanation. I felt quite comfortable with him.

Very professional doctor. On the other hand, the receptionist who was of Indian decent was extremely rude. He was very aggressive towards me for no apparent reason. The office would be the best on the city without him. But regardless, I highly recommend Rockoff.
