The word that comes to mind with Dr. Noroff is 'competence'. She is quick to assess the situation and provide a treatment, and explain why. What might seem brusque in other doctors does not feel the same with her -- most importantly because she asks if you have any questions. This is taken for granted but does not always happen as it should with other doctors. I went to her for common acne, and she treated my face while I was there in addition to prescribing medication/treatment. I had been to two other dermatologists for the same treatment and neither of them did that; they just wrote off a script within the first ten minutes. Her office staff (in the Short Hills location, though I will be visiting the Jersey City office as well) is also very pleasant and helpful and my wait time was next to nothing.

My appointment with Dr. Noroff fulfilled my expectations, but she was a bit curt. Though I was treated, it felt rushed with little to no explanations or time to ask questions. Overall, I left content, but felt that my visit could have been more personal, especially as a new patient.

Dr. Noroff was fantastic though her NP/PAs seemed unprofessional (I.e. Answering personal phone calls while dealing with patients, shouting at each other, texting and taking their time when helping patients) The office and exam room are a bit old, but Dr. Noroff was terrific once she came in. Very friendly, understanding and quick to help.

The doctor was great and really took her time with me. I was initially frustrated with the wait time, but realized once I saw her that it was because she really takes her time with each patient, as she did with me as well. I would recommend her.

This was my fourth visit to Dr. Noroff. I believe I was the last (or next to last) appointment at 4:50 PM. From the time I got there until the time I left it was 53 minutes total, which is a fair amount of time and by FAR the least amount of time I have ever spent in the office. I was very pleased by this. However, this was the first time I felt rushed by Dr. Noroff and felt she was trying to quickly get me in and out. I'm not sure if this was because I was so late in her day, but usually she is more accommodating, thorough, and caring as a doctor.

Dr. Noraff was extremely nice and very thorough in my skin examination. The nurses were also very nice. I would recommend her the only downside was the office was slightly dirty - not enough to concern me or anything but I've seen cleaner offices. I would still recommend Dr. Noraff regardless.

Dr Noroff is dedicated to helping and making sure her patients look n feel good. I love how she genuinely cares about my needs n always looks to find the best possible solution. Today I went in nervous about a random bump that developed on my elbow and she took the time to check it out and remove it. I appreciate the time n care she took with me cause this wasn't planned. My original appointment was for a refill on my medication. Thanks Dr Noroff!

This is my third time going to see Dr. Noroff. Every visit seems to be the same. She is caring and does her best for you (which is great), but the wait time is always atrocious. I had a 440 appointment and got there a few minutes early, only to sit in the lobby for over an hour before even getting to a room. They absolutely overbook appointments, there's no way you will ever be seen at- or even close to- you're appointment time. I would like to continue to see her, but every time I have to wait at that office, seeing a new doctor becomes more and more enticing.

Dr. Noroff was fine but it's been over 3 weeks and 5 calls to the office to try and get my test results and nothing. The girls at the front desk are rude, say they will call back but never do. I will never go there again.

Inspire of telling her that few medications don't work she prescribed the same medicine. She sells the medicines which are available OTC at a higher price. When I came home and found that she gave me same medicines and I called the office for returning it. They said no returns and no receipt was given. Stay away. Money minded.

Saw me for all of 10 mins, gave a quick treatment without explaining anything, got me to buy her facewash which wasn't very effective...and finally her office seems bent on getting me to buy the prescription (a huge secret that they don't seem eager to share) from the nearby Sip Pharmacy as opposed to my local Walgreens. It's been a week and I enquired about the prescription at my local Walgreens a few times for the transfer. Gave up and finally purchased generic over the counter ointments. Will not be going back. Horrible.
