Verified Patient Reviews
I visited Dr. Dube as a first time patient for a pap smear and questions about my birth control. I really loved Dr. DI've and her staff and medical assistants. She is a friendly and sweet doctor who listens to you and helps you make a decision and is very accomodating, she helped put me on a new pill. The only things I didn't like was that I was asked to fill out a waiver of my right to jury trial A.KA. arbitration agreement which I found strange because I never had to sign a form like this before. Also there was a long wait for the doctor to see me even though I came in 25 minutes early. However I did like her bedside manner and once she saw me she was very efficient.
Dr. Dube is a very caring, physician. Although the wait time was a little longer than usual, the staff kept us informed. Long waits happen, it's a Doctor's office. Dr. Dube likes to give all of her patient's the time they deserve.
Warm, knowledgeable, professional.
I really appreciate that Dr. Dube is willing to spend time and address questions.
Dr. Dube is always very straightforward and friendly. She takes your personal health very seriously and is easy to talk to and feel comfortable with.
Very kind and considerate. She seemed like she was invested in my well being, not like I was just another patient.
Excellent, efficient staff. Good 1st visit, I really liked Dr. Dubé.
Dr. Dube helpfully answered all of my questions and concerns in a warm, understanding manner.
Staff is very friendly and I always feel very comfortable in the office. Highly recommend!
Easy to talk to and quick.
Is it weird to love your OBGYN? Because I love Dr. Dube. She's been taking care of SF women for a long time and she does it right. Thanks Dr. D!
Loved seeing Dr. Dube! she was super friendly and made my first gyno visit a breeze :-)
Normally hate going to the doctor but Dorothy made it totally tolerable!
Dr. Dube' is the best physician I've ever had. She is both professional and personable. She talks with you and also listens to you.
Great experience! She was very friendly and helpful.
Dr. Dube is truly wonderful. She is thorough, gentle and patent. Everyone who works in the office is also super nice. Just the kind of place you want to go!
Dr. Dube was a great listener and very compassionate. She puts the patient first. In addition she's very smart and makes your time worth the appointment. She seems like the person that gets things done and makes progress. I'm so glad I chose to see her and I'll continue seeing her in the future.
I'd highly recommend Dr. Dube! I was seen quickly, Dr. Dube had clearly prepared for my visit (both by reviewing my patient history and providing the information I asked for when making my appointment), and she was extremely helpful & took the time to answer all of my questions.
Very professional and friendly. Made me feel super comfortable.
She is a gem of a person and a wonderful doctor. I felt extremely safe in her hands.
Very nice nurse and office staff, it was helpful to get all the paperwork ahead of time. Dr. Dube has a great bedside manner and made me feel very comfortable. She spent a good amount of time with me and answered all of my questions thoughtfully and thoroughly.
First time getting an IUD and Dr. Dorothy Dube made it as easy as possible. She was sweet, distracting (from the pain), informative and just very easy to work with. I'll be keeping her as my regular GYN. 100% satisfaction.
I really appreciate that Dr. Dube is not rushed and she is willing to talk through all concerns. Her office staff is very warm and helpful. When I came back for a follow-up procedure, they were expecting me, knew why I was there, and were ready to go. This is in contrast to other doctors I have visited where it appeared no one opened my file and thought about why I was there until I was in the exam room.
My visit was seamless and Dr. Dube is a kind and wonderful doctor. Highly recommend.
Dr. Dube was great! friendly and fast! will definitely see her again
It was my first visit and she made me feel very comfortable. I look forward to having her as my doctor.
Dr. Dube was incredibly warm, understanding, and great about answering all of my questions. So few doctors have left me feeling so well looked after and comforted!
Dr. Dube and her team are incredibly welcoming and very knowledgeable. The doctor herself makes you feel comfortable and is genuinely interested in your health. I would definitely recommend her!
I waited for 45 minutes and spent 19 minutes with the physician. I feel that she was a bit rushed and didn't explain things very thoroughly. When I expressed concern she didn't seem to have a reaction or find my concerns to be a big deal. I have been told by other patients of hers that my experience and wait time were unusual compared to theirs so maybe I just got unlucky with this visit.
Dr Dube was great - discussed pros and cons of my situation as one adult to another. It was my first visit but definitely not my last.
Incredibly informative. Very happy to have her as my Gyno. :D
She was great so friendly and really made be feel comfortable.
It was so efficient- I've never waited so little to see a doctor before! Yet I still felt very well taken care of and as though all of my questions were answered. Didn't feel rushed at all!
I absolutely hate going to the doctor, but Dr. Dube was so kind and easy to talk to. She really made me feel comfortable and it was the easiest, most pleasant exam I've ever had. I don't feel hesitant at all about making my next appointment :)
Dr. Dube has such a warm, approachable manner, with no nonsense advise you feel comfortable with. Her office is very well run, too, with minimal waiting time, and quick examinations.
Dr. Dube is the best OBGYN I have ever been to. She has the best bedside manner and makes you feel completely comfortable; I feel really lucky to have found her.
She's absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend.
Dr. Dube was incredibly personable, and a great listener. She immediately put me at ease as a first time patient, and ensured that she answered all of my questions. I look forward to going back to see her!
Obgyn appointments are always uncomfortable but Dr Dube made it pleasant!
Dr. Dube was extremely personable and attentive during my appointment. I am new to the city and was stressed about finding a new doctor, but Dr. Dube quickly put my nerves to ease. Her office staff and nurses were also extremely pleasant.
Dorothy herself was fine enough but her administrative staff is at best incompetent and at worse malicious. Shame on them for being willfully ignorant of the Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act (PPACA). In a medical office I expect employees to be cognizant of the laws regarding FDA-approved contraceptive methods.
Reuniting with a dear old friend! xoxox
Dr Dube is simply the best!
She was fantastic, very personable, knowledgable and reassuring. Loved her!
She is wonderful, probably the best doctor I have ever had. She is very honest, kind, and patient.
Very professional and friendly. Short wait time & very clean. Excited to have found this place and will be coming back regularly!
Took time to listen to my issues. Empathetic and reassuring. Explained what tests I needed and what we'd do based on the results. A huge improvement from my previous GYN
Excellent! I've seen her twice now & I'm happy to have found an understanding doctor in Dr. Dube. She has a caring bedside manner & gives you her honest opinion. I highly recommend her.
Very sweet, knowledgable, and caring doctor! Would recommend to anyone!
Fantastic - She had a great bedside manner and was very kind and helpful. The staff was also very sweet.
Office was well organized, appointment had a short wait while I filled out paperwork, and Dr. Dube was personable and attentive. I'm glad I went--there are no women doctors in Oakland that I could find!
Great! Dr. Dube and her staff were friendly, polite and professional! I had a great experience there.
I've been to Dr Dube multiple times and I love her! She is the best Dr I've ever had. She is so sweet and nice and even though she is much older than me she is very relatable! She inserted my iud and has helped me with other issues I have, I don't even live near the city anymore but I still make trips up there to see her! I highly recommend this dr! Her front desk staff is very nice and helpful as well!
Fantastic office with great friendly staff. Very comfortable visit, will come again and recommend this office to my friends.
Dr. Dube was a wonderful listener and really felt like she was my advocate during the appointment. I came away really trusting her advice.
Dr. Dube, is always punctual, professional and very personable!
Dr. Dube was wonderful! She explained everything in detail and even went further into depth to make sure I have a clear understanding. She was very helpful. Definitely recommended.
The rudest doctors office I have ever attended. It is very dirty and the people very unfriendly. I will never come back here again nor recommend anyone.
I'm rarely impressed by doctors. Perhaps I just expect a lot. Dr Dube exceeded my expectations and set a new bar. I had a complicated issue on my very first appointment and she informed me with the facts, kept me updated as she diagnosed the issue, made me feel confident that things were taken care of all while treating a stranger as you would a friend.
I've seen Dr. Dube twice and each time she was relaxed, warm, and willing to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend her.
Dorothy is so sweet and personable. She thoughtfully responded to my questions, helped me with my concerns, and made me feel comfortable. I'll definitely see her again!
She makes getting into stirrups about as comfortable as I imagine anyone can.
She is personable, honest, and informative!
Always well informed and through
Felt very taken care of, Dr. Dube was very sympathetic to me.
Appointment went very well and I felt very comfortable with her!
Absolutely loved her!
Dr. Dube is very sweet, with great bedside manner. She's very understanding (and not at all awkward). She also tries to make sure to be conscientious about coverage. very happy to have found her.
I saw Dr. Dube for a routine Pap and breast exam. She was warm and welcoming, and happily explained some nuances of California healthcare because I recently moved from NYC. I was in and out of the office in less than 45 minutes — which I appreciated — and Dr. Dube ensured all my questions and concerns were answered. Based on today's visit, I think this is the start of a wonderful doctor-patient relationship. Dr. Dube's staff was so cheerful and lovely, and I felt that I received excellent treatment while in her office.
I have seen Dr. Dube twice now and really respect and appreciate her. She was very comforting and kind as she took me through an uncomfortable procedure and made me as comfortable as possible.
Loved Dr. Dube, very professional and kind.
Dr. Dorothy Dube was great! She was easy to talk to and even though it was my first appointment with her, I felt as if I have been seeing her for years! She was fast and efficient.
Exceptional doctor! I've had more than my fair share of interactions with doctors as I have a chronic condition. Dr. Dube is a cut above most as she fully explained her thought process, presented me with treatment options and probable outcomes, and allowed me the agency to make my own choices with her guidance. This straight forward approach makes all the difference between things happening to you, and happening for you and with your consent. Highly recommended, hope all have a similar experience with her. Side Note: She does come off as quite an intellectual, rather than "touchy-feely" type -- so if you are a woman who prefers the latter approach, you may want another doctor. And there's nothing wrong with that!
Dr Dube is very personable. I completely trust her clinical judgement. Really nice to have a doctor who is watching after you.
Dr. Dube was friendly and efficient, as were the nurses and receptionist. This practice came highly recommended by a friend, and she was completely right. I had a great experience!
Dr. Dube is wonderful! Very friendly and easy to talk to. Highly recommend her.
I am not someone who likes going to the doctor, but Doctor Dube makes me feel completely at ease.
She was a great listener and very friendly. Had great suggestions for me and was completely willing to discuss options. Also, now available for appts on Saturdays which is super convenient! Looking forward to next year's visit!
She was really nice and explained everything she was doing as she went along.
Dr. Dube is such a helpful, friendly physician. She really listened to my concerns and answered my questions. I felt like my appointment was more of a collaborative process than anything else. I'll definitely be back!
Dr. Dube was great! I was switching from a great doctor in DC and a not so great doctor in SF. I found Dr. Dube through ZocDoc and the great reviews are very accurate. She listened to everything and was very responsive to my questions, thoughts, concerns, etc. Was open about different types of birth control, which I find not all doctors are, and she spent time with me. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Dube and staff made me feel welcome and comfortable. It was an amazingly pleasant experience.
Very pleasant, professional and listens to what you have to say.
Dr. Dube was fantastic! Warm, thorough, helpful, proactive, and totally awesome. I feel so lucky I found her.
Thoughtful, caring, and goes beyond patient care. Before running tests,she made sure that (1) lab tests were covered under my insurance and (2) I gave her final approval for running tests. Love my visit, and I would totally go see her again.
Dr. Dorothy is amazing. She is thorough and kind, and clearly knows what she is doing.
He is always nice
Thought she was great! Glad i found her!
Dr. Dube was very thorough, informative and sympathetic. I felt comfortable right away with her even as a new patient.
Very quick and professional!
I agree with the other reviews - Dr Dube is definitely an outstanding medical provider. Highly recommended. The only negatives would be the experience trying to use zocdoc with this practice. First, the office canceled the appt I scheduled on zocdoc and did not contact me to reschedule. I only learned when I got the zocdoc email that the appt had been canceled. Apparently the times this office lists on zocdoc are not always actually available. Then there is the issue of the check-in forms. For some reason this office is not receiving the full medical and ob-gyn medical history from zocdoc. When I walked in the office the lady behind the check-in desk was on the phone with zocdoc saying that another patient had filled out forms online but that the insurance information / medical forms were not sent. Then the same thing happened to me! Plus, I had arrived 15 mins early to sign the non-medical/non-insurance forms (notice of HIPPA, notice of arbitration forms, etc.) but because the lady was on the phone I just had to sit there waiting and couldn't use the time to fill out the forms. So by the time she was off the phone, it was already time for my appointment and I hadn't even gotten the forms to sign (also when I learned that the zocdoc checkin forms had not been received). Hopefully these technical/administrative issues can be worked out between the practice and zocdoc because Dr. Dube really seems to be a great provider.
My first time going to see an OBGYN. Dr. Dube was amazing, she is so sweet, smart, and approachable. She made me feel so comfortable through the entire experience and she spent a lot of time answering my questions.
I thought everyone, including the front desk receptionist, was VERY helpful and extremely pleasant! I never felt rushed and had all my questions answered. Dr. Dube kept things moving at a timely pace and I was in and out within the hour.
She was a really lovely doctor!
Dr. Dube was an absolutely wonderful doctor. I went to her for my annual check-up after moving here a little less than a year ago from New York (and leaving my normal doctor) and felt completely at ease with her. She answered my questions and I really felt like she cared and wasn't looking to rush me out. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a new go-to lady doctor in San Francisco.
This was my first time to this office and I was in and out in about 45 minutes, which included filling out all necessary paperwork and a short wait. Dr. Dube is attentive, warm and makes you feel right at ease - the appointment was nice and quick but didn't feel rushed. Ideal check-up, and I will definitely be going back to her.
I like Dorothy a lot. She answered all my questions and concerns effectively and compassionately.
She's great. Informative, nice, made me feel comfortable. She will definitely be my OBGYN from now on.
I had a great visit. I really liked Dorothy and felt very at ease with her. She answered all my questions. Glad I found her! She's going to be my new SF doc.
Extremely professional, kind, and helpful.
The staff did not submit my prescription to the pharmacy
I really enjoyed the visit would recommend her to everyone I know!!!!
Dr Dube is just the lovliest...
I really liked that they emailed the paperwork to me ahead of time so that I didn't have to rush to fill it out before the appointment. The assistant, Denise, who prepped me was fun to talk to. Very nice about making sure the blood pressure machine didn't pinch me too hard. Dr. Dube was so wonderful! Best doctor I've ever been to. For anything. Ever. She was friendly, explained the procedures to me carefully to make me feel comfortable, and educated me on relevant health topics without judgement or condescension. She was also very considerate of my insurance concerns after I mentioned it. I felt as I should coming out of a doctor's office-- educated about my health and like I would want to come back again! They also sent my prescription in electronically! So easy! Love it! :)
She's amazing, and so is the staff !
I was nervous about finding a new OB/GYN in San Francisco but my experience with Dr. Dube was such a pleasure. The office was easy to find, paperwork was sent to me ahead of time so when I arrived I was seen right away and Dr. Dube was a delight! The staff were all so lovely and I was in and out, with a new prescription, in less than an hour. Unheard of for being a new GYN patient.
I'm an anxious little lamb when it comes to these sorts of things due to past experience and a fair amount of body shame, but doc Dube was wonderfully receptive when I asked if we could just slow down. She talked me though everything, didn't push anything on me. She's an immensely sweet and knowledgeable professional. I would definitely recommend and come back.
I never fill out reviews but I am so impressed with Dr Dube that I felt compelled to. Ive seen her a few times in the past year after moving here from the East Coast and she has always been extremely pleasant and on time. The last time I saw her was for a relatively unforuntate circumstance where we lost the heartbeat on our child. We were so fortunate to have Dr Dube as our Doctor to help and guide us through this time. She was informative yet sensitive and helped us make the right decisions to move forward physically, emotionally and mentally with excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Dube is extraordinary! I've been seeing Dr. Dube for roughly four years since moving to SF, and though she may seem very quiet, she's very approachable and kind. Best yet -- she's really knowledgeable. While I highly rate my interactions with her, one should be aware that sometimes the front desk receptionist are not as personable. And, if you're ever having any labs done, you're better off contacting the office yourself v. them contacting you. Though no news is good news; I like to hear my results good or bad.
Great; quick and to the point.
I've had some really bad experiences with gynecologists before. Dr. Dube was a delight -- she explained everything, made sure to answer all of my questions and had a great personality. I am so glad I found her!
I had a great experience with Dr. Dube this morning! Very professional, knowledgeable, and one of the nicest doctors I've been to.
Very open, respected my preferences in regards to birth control, thoroughly explained every procedure/medication.
Wonderful, I have not have had a more comfortable gynecology appointment in my entire life. I have been quite scarred by some of them in my past and Dorothy made me feel like they never even existed. She was very professional and personal at the same time, the most perfect combination. I sincerely hope she reads it, because she deserves the praise :)
She is warm and friendly, very knowledgeable, and doesn't rush you. Discussed all the possible options for what symptoms could be and various treatments. Felt confident in her hands and highly recommend.
She made me feel very comfortable and answered all my questions
Excellent, caring staff and doctor.
Dr. Dube is great!! I definitely will come back.
Went in for my annual GYN exam. Dr. Dube is super nice and made me feel very comfortable right away. She seems highly capable during the exam.
She's really great! I felt so comfortable telling her about everything. She is very sweet and likes to talk things through with you before letting you go. I will definitely be going back to her!
Dr. Dube is just great. She really listens to what is going on and takes a vested interest in her patients. I have always left her office feeling like I knew what my next steps are and confident that I received the very best treatment.
so warm and friendly. her bedside manner put me at ease immediately. loved her!
Dr. Dube was awesome. She was so nice and attentive. She is also quick and makes the appointment as easy as possible. I felt very comfortable with her, and she set me at ease. Highly recommend Dr. Dube!
I was extremely satisfied with both Dr. Dube's expertise as well as bedside manner. She answered all of my questions and I never felt rushed or hustled out. I am a bit particular with doctors and she exceeded my expectations.
She is an excellent doctor. Extremely knowledgeable and really puts me at ease.
She was very nice and responsive to my concerns. The exam was quick and painless.
She is one of the best and most caring doctors I have ever been to. I can't say enough about how impressed I was. I recommend her highly.
She was both lovely and professional!
Dr. Dube is very friendly, informative, and interested in her patients' well being and happiness. I showed up for my appointment half an hour early to submit paperwork. I was called in at exactly 3PM and was out of there by 3:30PM!
She was fabulous!
She was very "maternal" and sympathetic during the consultation. I did not need a physical examination, but I think I would not have had problems with her since she was able to make me feel confortable and confident. I am only concerned about the fact that for my supposedly perimenopause related mood swings problem she prescribed directly an antidepressant, although at a very low dosage, without first checking my hormonal levels (to see if an hormonal treatment could be needed) or suggesting an alternative solution. I think I'll double check with another doctor prior to taking this medication....
Dr. Dube was very friendly and high energy. She was very attentive to what I had to say which I strongly value in a doctor. I dread going to the OB-GYN, but she made it a good experience. Going back to see her!
Very nice. Very professional and an excellent listener. I will be back.
Dr. Dube was great. I know this may come as a huge surprise to you, but I was not so excited about getting the yearly check-up I'd been avoiding for over a year. I know what you're thinking, "WHAT? People don't get totally excited for the OBGYN? That's nuts-o! It's the highlight of my year!" I know, I know. I'm definitely the exception here. But, she totally made the unpleasant experience as bearable as possible by taking a lot of time to answer questions, going over my medical history in detail, and giving me lots of warnings/time-until-it's over-updates during the actual exam. I had a DMV appointment right after this one (because when I take an afternoon off of work, I try to make it as epic as possible) and I wasn't sure which appointment would be worse. Results are in: the OBGYN was way better than the DMV. I will definitely be going to her in the future for all of my super-awesome and exciting OBGYN needs. Dr. Dube > DMV.
Very friendly and knowledgeable!
Dorothy was great. I was finished with my appointment in 30 minutes, so I got back to work sooner than I expected. She was super friendly and answered my questions thoroughly. I would recommend her to anyone!
She was really good. And I love that she took the time to listen about how a person feel about there health. Thank you Dorothy Dude
I can't say enough about Dr. Dube! She is excellent. The front desk were great as well! Lovely ladies!
It was excellent, she was very patient and easy to talk to. She made me feel very comfortable and answered all the questions I had.
I had a great first experience seeing Dr.Dube. She was extremely welcoming and made me feel comfortable. She answered all of my questions and had an overall pleasant attitude. I would definitely see her again and recommend to friends.
Great experience, highly recommend.
Dr Dube is lovely! makes good conversation and examples things clearly. She is great.
Very warm and easy to talk to
The front office and support staff were friendly and helpful. Dr. Dube was easy going, friendly and listened to my questions and concerns. I was very please with my experience.
She was amazing! Easy to talk to, even about the uncomfortable stuff. She seemed really honest and genuinely concerned about what was going on with me.
Sweet, sincere, and caring. She took her time with me and explained everything in detail.
Dr. Dorothy Dube is such a sweet lady and an excellent doctor! She was very professional and patiently answered all of my thousands of questions! Thank you!
This was my first visit with her and she was wonderful!!! Very easy to talk to, professional and straight forward! Exactly what I need with my hectic schedule!!!
Dr. Dube is incredibly nice and helpful. Although, she is straight to the point and I appreciate such, sometimes, I feel that she should provide more insight on what your specific medical situation is and/or the results of your lab work. Please also note that Dr. Dube's office would only contact you if there is something abnormal in your lab work, otherwise, except no follow up call. While the "no-calling" unless something is wrong, I would prefer to know either way and of course, this is just a matter of preference. That said, I'd still recommend Dr. Dube, as she is one of the better physicians I've visited on the west coast.
She was very warm and welcoming.
Great! Very easy to talk to and understanding.
I've seen Dr. Dube for over 3 years and have had nothing but the best experience with her! She is the ultimate professional and puts you at ease with her bedside manner. In all my experiences with OBGYNs, Dube is the best!
Everyone at this office was so friendly and happy. Was able to get a quick last minute appointment. Dr. Dube explained the details to me, was thorough and most importantly, helped me to feel better!
Dr Dube is very professional but also very down to earth and approachable. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
I was 100% satisfied with my appointment! She answered all my questions thoroughly, showing pictures while explaining, etc, was very prompt and to the point, and was very personable and down to earth. My partner and I both felt very comfortable with Dr. Dube, and were very pleased when we left. I look forward to future appointments.
