Very clear and concise in discussing any issues and potential issues. Uses terms easily understood. Always takes the time to explain procedures. Extremely personable. very genuine in his compassion towards me.
The office seemed a bit busy but was able to get me in and out surprisingly fast, all of my questions were answered and he made the visit very comfortable.
Very attentive. Not only listened to my concerns, heard what I was saying. Very kind and explained everything in terms easily understood.
Dr. Rothman is always a pleasure to see. His smiling face & listening ear is very comforting. I'm glad that he's my doctor.
Dr Rothman is a HOOT! He made me feel comfortable and was very thorough in the best plan for me and my needs. I would definitely recommendo him!
I've been seeing Dr. Rothman for about a year now and I must say he has consistently been a pleasure to have as my doctor. He listens to my concerns, asks questions to ensure he fully understands my concerns and provides great guidance. He walks you through whatever he is about to do. If you are like me and hate going to the GYN because you feel awkwardly uncomfortable, Dr, Rothman's smiling face and optimistic outlook will ease that feeling.
Best doctor, hands down. We actually hugged at the end!
Dr. Rothman is absolutely amazing. He's super sweet & very helpful.
I arrived early, so the actual wait time was "right away" as I was seen at my appointment time.
Great introduction, made me feel comfortable. Explains everything in detail and tells you what he is doing before each step. I just moved and was looking for a new OBGYN. I am very satisfied with my experience and would recommend him.
Dr. Rothman is a caring physician who listens to your concerns and addresses them.
Overall it wasn't a good experience. He was unfriendly and made me feel uncomfortable. In addition to this, he said he would give me my test result and never get back to me until today. It's been over 10 days, most importantly he said he would get back to within 2-3 days. I called the office multiple times and operators were not willing to help and I am still waiting my test result. One of the operator said the result is ready but needed doctor's signature and called again then nurse said its not ready... I beleive it's totally unethical and unprofessional. It's a doctor's office not sales department!
Dr. Rothman is very experienced and recognized in his field. He is conscientious and caring and has twice helped guide me through breast cancer. As a patient I feel I am getting the best care possible with Dr. Rothman and that I am treated with empathy and consideration.
No regard for patient privacy, speaking about my situation in the hallway. Poor word choice and I felt like he was in a hurry. This was my second visit but I will not be returning.
I overall thought it was great! Very fast and efficient service by the medical professional however Vicky, the front office receptionist was very rude and unpleasant.
Dr. Rothman is the ultimate professional. He treated me respect, listened to my concerns, and answered my questions. He gave me evidence-based information and we engaged in shared decision-making. I recommend him highly for anyone who believes in playing an active role in their own health.
Dr. Rothman was knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable during my appointment.
He is a warm energetic personality and put me at ease for my first ever gyno visit. He explained everything fully and made sure to refer me to follow up appointments just to be on the safe side. Quick and efficient but not rushed at all, really one of the best do cote experiences I've ever had- never thought I would say that about an obgyn!
I really liked Dr. Rothman. Since it was my first time ever in that office, he made sure to explain everything, not only for that visit but for future visits. I know this sounds like it should be common practice, but some times you just feel like a doctor is trying to get you in and out. It was not that way with Dr. Rothman. I look forward to my next visit.
