He was a very nice guy and his work was great
My visit was with another doctor but she was GREAT!!! I think her name was Amanda... She was competent understood exactly what I needed and her treatment of me was spot on! Would definitely recommend.
My insurance was not covered
Very pleasant and professional
Dr doesn't work with my insurance, not happy, system should be updated.
Will def go back. Seems highly knowledgeable and accomplished. Impressive education and training.
Waited longer then usual this time. It's usually quick. However zoc doc sent them two different times so they didn't know when I was coming
Dr. Doctoroff is very friendly and upbeat. I came for a mole check and also inquired about injectables. He didn't think I needed injectables yet, just a tailored skin care regime. I liked the fact that he treated me like a patient and not a customer; very refreshing. I would recommend him to anyone.
Everyone is very nice. Waited less then 5 minutes. Will definitely go back.
I googled Dermatologist in my area and Dr Doctoroff was one that came up on ZocDoc....I saw that there was an appt within an hour so I booked it..I filled out the paperwork online. When I got there I sat for less then 5 minutes and got into the room. within another few minutes the Dr. came in......VERY pleasant and personable. I really like him and will recommend him to others.
I was not briefed well about my ailment. It was very vague visit.
Very professional and courteous!
He prescribed helpful topical creams for my issue.
Very pleasant, quick and informative.
This was my first visit with Dr. Doctoroff. I had a minor nail concern and he was able to diagnose was the issue was right away with confidence. He did have a PA that came in before him to assess me. I got the feeling she was new and would not give me her opinion what my issue was. But I could hear her talking to him in the hallway and her diagnosis of my nail condition was exactly what he saw. I am a nurse and I work in a teaching hospital so I am very open to having teaching moments. Not only was he teaching her but also showing me at the same time what was going on. His bedside manner was excellent and I would definitely recommend him in the future.
My visit went wonderful. I felt so comfortable with everyone. Would most certainly recommend.
He explained the issue patiently. Very professional.
Very professional attitude. Nursing staff was excellent, very kind and customer focused. Doctor was very patient and allowed enough time to answer all questions.
Dr. Doctoroff was very nice but the lady at the register quite rude, made you feel not welcome here.
Very professional and kind!
Docotor was ok. Front desk staff was not very helpful.
Friendly. Eased my concerns and left me very optimistic.
Friendly staff and very warm atmosphere. Doctor took time to listen to the description of the issues and gave explanation of plausible causes. We left with the sense that the doctor was very sympathetic and helpful to us.
