Stellar! Reception staff are fast, responsive. The medical care is solid: Jalpa Patel is kind, thorough and credible, and my skin screening was a breeze! I don’t go anywhere else now / switched to Metropolitan Dermatology for the proximity and quality of care.

The staff and doctor I saw was very good. There was an inconvenience and I was sent to another office. Turns out I receive a call minutes before my appointment letting me know the doctor my daughter was scheduled to seedoes not see children. Luckily the receptionist at the Morris Ave office was able to get me an appointment in the Clark office immediately. I am very thankful for their professionalism and understanding the importance of my visit. Aside from this I have to say I was pleased

I waited over an hour and half to be seen. The doctor rushed into the room to tell me to wait a bit longer. Then he came in and spent two minutes with me. I had a severe face wound andhe didn’t appease my concerns at all. All he did was prescribe me some creams but wasn’t clear at all with how to take care of the wound until I asked as many questions as I could think of. I will be going to another professional to make sure this is taken care of the right way.

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 apatient and not a customer; very refreshing. I would recommend him to anyone.

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.
