Verified Patient Reviews
I don’t think they had my appointment because the receptionist asked me twice what time my appointment was. Waited over 30 mins and they weren’t even busy. I felt rushed in the exam room. The doctor was ok. Not too friendly. I did what I needed to do but I don’t think I’ll go back or recommend to anyone.
Dr. Noroff was a great doctor who was able to answer all of my questions. She explained the procedures she was doing and offered honest feedback on what was going on. I look forward to referring others to her.
She is an amazing dermatologist. She knows her field and is very kind.
I was a little late for the appointment so I attribute my wait time to that. The doctor was lovely, I will definitely continue using her as my dermatologist.
Doctor and staff were very friendly.
Very kind, knowledgeable and professional.
My visit with Dr. Noroff was quick & painless. I was quite nervous going into it, and Dr. Noroff quickly put my mind at ease and performed the necessary treatment procedure quickly and efficiently. I would 100% recommend her to any of my friends.
The facility as something to be desired, but the staff and doctor herself are absolutely fabulous. I was impressed and will return
I should've booked sooner with her! Very knowledgeable and great office staff. A rare combination to find and already recommended her to others. My second appointment is already booked- great hours I can work around my crazy work schedule.
I am happy with Dr. Noroff as my dermatologist.
This was my third appointment with Dr. Noroff. She is nothing short of absolutely wonderful. Do yourself a favor and book your next derm appointment with her. Both staff members were personable and helpful, as well. I don’t particularly enjoy going to any doctor, but they did a great job of making me feel comfortable and confident that I will get the results that I’m looking for.
Personable, knowledgeable and efficient physician. My teenager was pleased with her visit
Great doctor. She was friendly, professional and made me feel at ease.
Very nice and helpful. Listened to our concerns and lead us in the right direction
Have been a patient of hers for several years. Always spends time with you and explains things thoroughly. Always satisfied.
Thorough, patient, knowledgeable. Did not push unnecessary nonsense.
Dr. Noroff was friendly, confident, and thorough. She explained why she thought a certain treatment path was right for me and was open to my input. She also was very focused on making sure the treatment plan is financially reasonable, which I really appreciated. I'll definitely be back.
Dr. was great, and I wouldn't hesitate to go back.
- [ ] Attendant was Solemn, unfriendly and uninformed over the phone before arriving. Gave me inaccurate information about my insurance and couldn't provide costs of procedures. - [ ] Office building seems to be under construction. Office itself has stains in carpet, dirty sinks, needs vacuuming, equipment seems old and out dated... - [ ] Difficult to locate the office in the building due to strange signage on lower level and all other doors in the building. - [ ] staff was listening to patients calls on speaker phone. Could hear from the lobby. - [ ] Yelling food orders across the office to coworkers - [ ] Staff is solemn and unfriendly That being said, i REALLY liked Dr. Noroff! Super personal. Very clear, warm and helpful. Would totally recommend her. Her office is right next to the path train. I dont think the office was wheelchair accessable however.
Long wait, but very fast diagnosis and prescription. Great doctor, I highly recommend her!
My daughter and I loved her. She didn't rush us and she made my daughter feel hopeful we finally found help for her eczema.
Very good doctor.
The Dr was fine but her staff was not friendly, there were three appts at the same time, and the office was not very modern.
Very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, up to date on current research and articles in the field. Terrible wait time, but very nice staff. Almost walked out before I even was seen, but my encounter with her was so pleasant that I would plan to wait again. Just know going in that you're going to wait for your appointment - plan ahead and bring something to do. Hopefully her recommendations/prescriptions help.
She did not spent much time. the service was rushed
Dr. Noroff is a nice doctor and wants to help you but the office staff in Millburn is very unprofessional. While I was sitting in the waiting room for 45 minutes, the staff was speaking with a patient or pharm rep about her personal life for all to hear-very inappropriate! Once I was put in a room I still waited another 10-15 minutes. The first time I went I was assured the wait was unusal but so I made an early appointment for my follow up but I still sat there while the staff talked about how they needed thier nails done. Very frustrating.
She is amazing at what she does and usually knows right away what the issue is.
SPENDS TIME AND LISTENS TO PATIENT
She is fenomenal. Took the time to explain. Was concerned about cost of treatment and gave me options. Very knowledgeable and experienced. Gave me the right diagnose and treatment after 2 doctors gave me the wrong ones. Thanks Dr Joan!!!
Dr Noroff was fantastic. She had a great manner about her, and took the time to explain options. She was also price conscious of available treatments. Highly recommend her.
I've been to this Dr before, she's great. The wait is usually very long though. Better communication on the possible wait times would be great.
Overall, it was a pleasure experience meeting the doctor. I was treated with great respect and patience by her.
She is always so positive. Dr. Noroff makes you feel like you are the most important patient on her calendar.
Nice people and great service. Excellent.
Great Visit. Made me feel very comfortable.
Dr. Noroff is a superb physician.
She was very professional and knowledgeable
Im usually never the one to leave reviews but Dr. Noroff was very unprofessional. She was having a conversation with me as if it was her highschool friend. I don't think I'll be returning for my follow up appointment and would definitely not recommend her.
worst doctor I've ever seen.
She was the best - very kind and knowledgeable! Would highly recommend!
She was awesome. I can't say enough about the visit. When you are someone who needs a full body check by a dermatologist, you want someone you trust and feel comfortable with. So so so glad I chose her.
Dr. Was very knowledgeable and friendly. The procedure was fast. Great physician.
Dr Noroff was super friendly and straight to the point. I went in for a bad case of bacne and she immediately got a treatment plan going for me. She is doing everything she can to get my skin looking great.
Dr. Noroff was very efficient and clear during the appointment.
As always, great.
Dr. Joan is very friendly. She is approachable and easy to talk to about medical concerns.
I absolutely LOVE Dr Noroff. She is so kind n concerned. Her staff is amazing. Dr Noroff wants my skin to look the best that it can n goes above n beyond to ensure that it does. I have referred two friends already n they have both come back ecstatic after their appointments. I highly recommend this awesome professional!
Dr. Noroff really took the time to discuss and explain what she thought my diagnosis was. She offered me multiple options for a solution and gave detail on each. Really appreciated that she went through all of that and didn't just diagnose me. Bedside manner was also terrific!
I had an excellent visit with Dr. Noroff, who listened to my concerns and promptly and thoroughly addressed my issues.
Amazing doctor, rude stuff and long wait.
Very professional, knowledgeable and experienced dermatologist - highly recommended.
Dr. Noroff took her time with me and was very informative. She wanted to get to the root of my problem and discussed with me the course of action that she was going to take with my case. I would definately recommend her if you need a good dermatoglist!
Awesome doctor! Was very friendly and explained everything she was doing and why she was doing it. Also very informative. I actually wound up learning a ton during my short visit. Highly recommend!
I loved Dr. Noroff and her professionalism. She was extremely sweet and made sure to listen to my concerns. However, the office is way too outdated for 21st century medicine, with tools looking like they're from the '70s. Also, the office doesn't use computers, which baffles me. Staff says they'll call you to update you on your insurance claim, etc, but I've had to call and get my update each time -- definitely not doing their due diligence in patient care. I think the solutions would be to update the office, bring in some computers, and train the staff in diligence and follow up procedures.
Doctor and the staff were good but the only thing that I felt was that Doctor was rushing me. She did not give enough time so that I can explain my problem well and can ask questions.
She was very effective seem to very knowledgeable and she is excellent with children.
The doctor was fantastic, she listened to all my questions and was very knowledgeable.
I was very pleased with the Dr. Noroff. She was efficient, with a nice "bedside manner".
As usual, she is so good with her diagnosis and the manner in which she treats you. Love her.
Recommended medicine without seeing the patient completely first.
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.
Great doctor, seems to be very knowledgeable. Chose her because of her education and number of years practicing.
The medicine worked like a charm
She is the best
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 friendly and personable. She gave a very thorough full body check and left me with lots of information about what to look for in the future.
It is hard to find a good dermotogolist in HUDSON county!!! She is great and I'm happy I found her and she has been able to find the right medications for my skin!!
DR. J. NOROFF IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN A PROFESSIONAL DOCTOR. I HAVE BEEN GOING TO HER FOR MANY YEARS. THANK GOD SHE HAS AN OFFICE IN JERSEY CITY. VERY SATISFIED.
Except for the long waiting time (about 50 min), everything else was good. I would go back again. Robin
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.
BEEN A PATIENT FOR MANY YEARS. SHE NEVER DISAPPOINTED ME.
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.
Very personable. Took the time to explain everything to my 12 year old. Also very optimistic of the results. Definitely would recommend this Dr. We will continue seeing her as well.
Pleasant and professional.
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!
Front office was not very inviting and friendly, but Dr. Noroff was very good and very informative. I say don't judge the book by its cover.
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.
She is very nice and caring and understands what one needs.
Dr. Noroff was very helpful and informative. I would recommend her in that office. Very professional and over the top bedside manner!
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.
I've been to four dermatologists. Dr. Noroff is the best. She has treated both me and my wife. Highly recommend
Efficient, smart, and great bedside manner.
VERY PLEASANT AND VERY PROFESSIONAL. SHE TREATED ME FOR MY EXISTING PROBLEM AND FOUND ANOTHER AREA THAT NEEDED ATTENTION. VERY HAPPY ABOUT MY VISIT. I WILL MAKE A FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT FOR NEXT MONTH.
Dr. Noroff is wonderful!!! She made me feel very comfortable and was very kind!!!
Terrible treatment and billed me for random "surgeries" on my skin
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.
Awesome doctor. Highly recommend!!
Very nice and professional. Takes her time listening to patient.
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.
I absolutely LOVE Dr Noroff! She is very caring and wants only for me to look and feel my best when it comes to my skin. She has helped me gain my self esteem back, I no longer hide my beautiful skin behind the cover up! Thank u soo very much!
I like Dr. Noroff, I was able to explain my dermatological issues and get great feedback to address my issue. Wait time was minimal and the receptionist were very nice and sweet. It's definitely a nice atmosphere and I would recommend this doctor.
She is very professional and spent enough time explaining the cause, symptoms etc., will visit her again..
Typically there is a wait when I have gone. I had a need to get in touch with the physician recently and it was very difficult. I called the office and left messages for a week. ultimately was not able to get in touch with her, but spoke to her staff.
Very pleasant you get in and get it done??
Dr. Noroff was very professional and seemed to genuinely care for me as her patient. She was way better than previous doctors I have seen. That being said, the office overall had a horrible wait time. I do not understand the point of making an appointment if i did not get seen for over an hour and a half after my appointment time. I am dreading my follow up knowing it will be a 2 hour plus endeavor.
The Doctor was great! The staff in the office not so much. Pretty sad when you have a good Doctor and before you see the Doctor you have to encounter employee's that don't seem to want to do their job.
Dr. Noroff is professional and personable . Her manner is if the highest quality. She removed something from my back and it was quick and painless. I have been seeing Dr. Noroff for years and will continue to do so
Dr Noroff was great! No complaints!
Poor service. Did non answer my questions. Very vague explanations on everything. No mention of possible side effects of medications. I guess it would be ok for a very basic problem, but otherwise I would not recommend
I think all dermatologists are guilty of not spending enough time with their patients, so I'm not sure if it was just Dr. Noroff or the whole profession. However, when asking me if I had any other questions, she was already halfway out the door. She was otherwise pleasant and very nice to me.
It was a pleasant experience.
Quick quick quick
Quick and painless
Great doctor, took more than two hours waiting though.
Have been going to her for the last 4 years and never had an unpleasant visit. I have recommended a few friends to her and they all like her.
So far so good. It was my first visit. She seemed like an attentive doctor. I will see how treatment goes.
Wait time was ridiculous - came at 4:10 for a 4:20 appt and did not go in until 5:50...Dr Noroff was amazing but scheduling patients too close together (every 15 mins) when she needs more time, makes one reconsider a physician who doesn't value a patients time. Then this ZocDoc system is fabulous but the office staff have no computer to read or print the information???? Don't get it - very 2015 on the outside but very 1970 on the inside????
I think I paid for nothing. We sat there (my newborn and I) for 35 mins. I got there on time and prepared my forms online for the Dr not to do a thing for me at all. If I could get my money back then I would.
She is the best dermatologist ever!
She's awesome ??
I waited over an hour for my appointment. I told Dr. Noroff my concerns and she dismissed to look at my area of concerns. She gave me quick test and then said I need blood work done. And that's how my appointment ended. No follow up once I got my results. I reached out to my Dr. friend who told me what my results mean and she was able to evaluate my condition over the phone. This was 2 weeks later, by then my symptoms Greatly worsened, which could have been prevented.
The staff was exceptional, friendly n informative. Dr Noroff was very sympathetic to my concerns n made me feel comfortable. She thoroughly explained the meds she was prescribing. I was very happy with my initial visit.
What a breath fresh air. . A REAL DOCTOR!
Dr Noroff was personable, thorough and put me at ease. I feel confident in her diagnosis and experience. She took her time to answer my questions and complete a thorough exam.
She knows what she's doing. I have had acne problems for a long time and I just when I decided to go visit a derma for the first time, I read reviews on ine and choose her. She examined me and gave me a prescription. Its been a year now and I've been free from acne. WOW! In summary, She brilliant! And yes visit a dermatologist for everything slightest thing :/ and home remedies doesn't provide long time solution. But a derma will :)
Awesome. She gets right down to business
She was very informative
The dr. Is very friendly and gets right to it. I love her.
Dr. Noroff was great. She was very friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. I noticed some reviews complaining about the wait time. If you go to a doctor and don't expect to wait, you really need to adjust your expectations!
Receptionist very nice and Doctor Noroff was very helpful!
Spent less than 2 minutes with me. Pushes her own products, without much details. Did not really talk to me or try to get to know my concerns. Staff is great, but the doctor herself seems too busy
Very helpful and accurate
Very pleasant, I just didn't like they throw your registration papers away if they receive them in advance, n I didn't understand because my appt was not until 2 weeks of making it online.
Hoping that the recommended treatment works sice my patch test came back negative
Dr. Noroff was great! She is down to earth, very knowledgeable, fantastic doctor. I will be going back to her again. :-)
Wait time was over an hour even after booking an appointment. People who just walked in were also let in before people without appointments. The doctor walked in and talked for less than 3-4 minutes, and seemed to be in a hurry to run to other patients. Very strange approach to consulting.
great, great and great I really mean it in every sense of the word Dr. Noroff came in very professional and friendly as well as her staff, she evaluated my situation with just a look and told me I had 2 things going on and I was so surprised that she diagnosis me so quickly. I already recommended my boss because she was looking for a great dermatologist.
I love this lady !!! She answered all my questions and gave me great advise. She's the best.
FAST AND PROFESSIONAL DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT
Dr. Noroff, was very nice and professional. She took the time to talk with me about my diagnosis and allowed me to ask any questions. overall I would recommend her to anyone.
She was late both days to early morning appointments and then she speeds through the appointment. She talks very fast so it actually takes you a few seconds to realize when she is asking you a question. To be honest both appointments were blurs. I suppose a lot got accomplished in them, biopsied mole, skin check, treatment, diagnosis and giving quick overview of how to use meds. What I will say is she was very very very generous with free samples, recommended a great pharmacy that delivers, and promised to cover services if the insurance didn't, and I never received a bill from the insurance. So, just don't expect a 2 hour sit down, but it seems she knows what she is doing.
She is Awesome!!!
I waited for over an hour at the office. when she finally saw me, she asked about my condition and did what she had to do. i knew she was knowledgeable but it seemed like she was in a hurry. she never explained the whole process, what id feel, much more the to-do's and what not after the procedure. she was talking really fast, i could barely understand, then she walked away entertaining another patient. i felt like i wasnt really entertained well.
My partner does not have insurance but she really needed to see a dermatologist. The front desk refused to see my partner because she did not have insurance despite willing to pay whatever the appointment would cost. I called before booking and was told having no insurance would not be a problem. Not only was the front desk terribly rude and disrespectful to my partner, they made her wait almost two hours to be seen. I overheard Doctor Noroff tell the front desk "No insurance? Well then bye!" After waiting for so long, the doctor arrived and told my partner she is lucky to be seeing her and will assist because as a doctor she can't refuse her. It was such an unpleasant experience and my partner nor will I ever be returning to this office again.
Very nice and overall a great experience. Felt the appointment was a little rushed.
The doctor was great, but the girl that walked me to my room to see the doctor seemed off. She was asking me questions about my insurance that I felt they should've verified directly with them before seeing me and because of this I had to wait awhile for her to do that once I told her that I wasn't sure.
Dr. Noroff was knowledgeable and friendly. I felt like she and her staff cared.
Dr. Noroff and front desk staff were excellent at kindly explaining the different processes and medications to me. I liked the Verdesso foam and lotion she prescribed because it was very mild but effective.
Waited too long and I was not given the time and attention I needed, couldn't go through all I wanted to discuss.
I really liked dr. Noroff and she seemed to be very knowledgable. Only downside was the wait (1 hour and 15 minutes) but If you don't mind waiting, I would reccomend her! They make their own acne spot treatment so it's affordable and they also go through a pharmacy that will deliver your medicine to your door the next day. The staff were helpful with ordering it and I'm suppose to get it tomorrow.
Great visit. Highly recommended.
Dr. Noroff is our doctor for nine yrs. she was recommended by my wifes co worker in newark beth israel. nurses knows whos the best
The wait time was ridiculous. I literally waited over an hour and a half in the actual exam room. She and assistants came in and out and hardly anyone addresse me before I addressed them. No one gave me an idea of how much longer it would take. I brought my toddler with me and she was bouncing off the walls after 45mins of waiting. There were also bottles and viles of liquid that looked at least 25 years old; with peeling labels and stains. I almost left after an hour of waiting--but my condition was so bad I couldn't wait to find another doctor. Once she finally came in she was great. The diagnosis and course of treatment was decided in about 3mins. I'm going for my follow ups with her; but only because I was assured the next visit I don't see her but will get my tests done right upon arrival.
i watited maybe less than 10min. the employes were profesional and Dr Noroff knew the problem and right away gave me a solution. will try the solution and hopefully it will work...we are back at the office in 2 weeks and check out results...
Really liked the doctor but the wait was unacceptable.
She was professional, listened to my concerns and took action to alleviate my worries. The staff is friendly, helpful and concerned. I always leave feeling as if I've been treated by one of the best.
She was very nice, creams she gave me worked, going back for allergy test
I was very pleased with my visit. Dr. Noroff and her staff were very professional and courteous. I was able to fill out all forms online, eliminating the annoying 15min "clipboard session" usually encountered when visiting a new doctor. I had a persistent infection due to a piece of thorn in my leg and Dr Noroff was very thorough in both her quest to remove it as well as cleaning out the infected site. At the end of the visit I was given clear and concise instruction on how to take care of the wound. Highly recommended! BTW: Pain free, during and after the procedure!
Love the doctor front desk people were also very nice. A little annoying that so many people are booked in so you still have to wait a little over your scheduled time but it was def. worth it!
I barely had to wait after I filled out the paperwork for my initial visit. She was very professional and didn't take her long to diagnose my condition. I would highly recommend seeing her.
Very long wait after office staff warmed us to get there early because 'the doctor isn't staying long today'. Very disappointing, especially as I had to take my infant with me. Doctor was professional and knowledgable however once we finally made it in.
Had to wait nearly 1.5 hours to be seen, yet drug reps were still being given attention while patients waited. Doctor was much better the first time I saw her. She seems rushed and dismissed some of my concerns without providing me with other options. The biggest downside to this office, is, well, the office! It's very drab and the rooms were not very clean. I'm going to look for a new provider.
I WENT this doctor and she didn't help at all. Treated my face for acne when I didn't even have ONE pimple on my face and acne has never been an issue for me!
Dr. Noroff was very friendly and thorough. I did wait an hour but luckily brought work with me.
Dr. Noroff herself was great! She was very knowledgaeble and thorough. The wait time was JUST under 30 minutes, not terrible. They have the most antiquated credit card machine of all time, so waiting for them to run it took forever. But I would definitely go back because I really liked the Dr.
She was very pleasant and thorough
It was a good interaction with the Doctor. She was quite receptive and clear about the treatment.
Unorganized office. Wait time is insane. Dr Joan is satisfactory.
I didn't like the service didn't seem to take the time to understand my problem just gave me antibotics and sent me on my way and now my problem is back after 6 months. This sucks, won't be going back here ever agin
Exactly what I wanted, and with the candor that is rare.
I had my first appt. with DR Noroff today, and could not be happier to have her as my Dermatologyst. She is very friendly and professional, and was able to help me right away.
She was wonderful and well worth the wait!
Extremely unprofessional. Wait times were over 45 minutes even after a scheduled appointment on more than one occasion. Office and seeing rooms are dingy and not very clean. The doctor sees 3-4 patients at a time who are seated in different rooms and rotates between them. The end result is that you are barely seen for 5 minutes before your concerns are dismissed, you are cut off mid-sentence and you are rushed out to make way for the next cog in the assembly line. The office people are extremely rude and condescending if you need any help or ask any questions even though while I was there most of their time was spent gossiping amongst each other and with various medical reps. In summation, if your medical needs are more complicated than getting a botox shot, please stay far far away.
She is WONDERFUL!!! Does the job right away. I just love her!!! :-)
She was professional, caring and listened to my concerns. I felt quite confident when I left the office that I had received the best care available. I look forward to my next appointment.
I waited 1h15min past my appointment time to be seen. Then, once the doctor came in, she left for me to change into a gown and was gone for another 15 minutes. I really liked the doctor, but the wait was almost unbearable!
The doctor was friendly, and reassuring,a little quick and did not explain everything thoroughly but I felt confident and taken care of.
Great. She gave samples of the medicated cream we needed. Put my scared 4 year old at ease.
Charged for procedure I didn't want and the office was very old and in bad condition. Didn't listen to my wants or needs.
She was very pleasant and so nice.
The doctor is very knowledgeable and began treatment on the first visit.
Doctor was very good, however would suggest that the office could be a little better maintained.. Specially the observation area is bad. Doctor is very helpful and has a lot of patience.
I really liked Dr. Noroff; she put me at ease at once and was very friendly. However, the office is dirty and small. There are cracks in the walls of the waiting room and the carpet is peeling up. The room where I was seen had a floor so dirty I left my shoes/socks on when I changed into the gown for Dr. Noroff to examine me. In addition, there were doctor implements lying exposed in a windowsill and on the counter. In terms of the staff, the office seems very poorly run. The nurses seemed confused by requests, there were different forms and papers lying everywhere.
Dr. Noroff was fantastic. She's extremely knowledgeable and very pleasant. My only complaint is the office location. Parking in Jersey City is dreadful so be sure to be build in plenty of extra time if you plan to drive.
My son is a new patient and we were very pleased with the doctor.
I'm not coming back again....staff are not friendly....not accommodating....
Ok, I just felt she was rushed that day and had a quick answer. But she did address my concerns once I told her my preferences.
Dr. Noroff is awesome! The staff is very friendly and helpful. As soon as I was done with the insurance docs I was escorted right into a room. She saw me within 5 minutes.
I literally picked Dr. Noroff at random, and I couldn't be happier. She really listened, was charming, and treated my issue. I will recommend her to all my friends.
Very professional and a good bedside manner
Had a lot of derma doctors before but She is somebody to reckon with. Best so far. .....
Dr. Noroff was very informative and attentive. I knew exactly what she was doing and why. She was extremely nice as well. I look forward to my next visit.
Great doc. Very good bedside manner. Did a really good job of explaining things to me. Would highly recommend
I liked her very much. She explained everything clearly, took plenty of time with the procedure, and was very reassuring about the prognosis. She was also very clear as to what the follow-up would consist of. As I was paying out of pocket, she gave me a discount for the procedure, and arranged for a discounted fee from the lab, as well. After the treatment, her medical assistant stayed with me for a considerable amount of time to monitor my response, and to explain what my follow-up care at home should be.
The Dr. was very professional, put me at ease during the examination and treatment, and was clear in her explanations of options.
excellent. She was very kind and helpful.
The office staff was warm and friendly and the doctor treated me as if I was a long time patient! Very engaged with her patients! Would definitely recommend this doctor!
Great doctor.....great staff! Loved them :-)
As always, pleasant and thorough.
She's wonderful! Very positive and optimistic! And everything she's prescribed works so far! The staff is very friendly too!
Dr. Noroff was great, very knowledgeable, and made me feel heard. She listened to my case, showed interest, asked relevant questions, and put thought into a personalized plan to address my situation. I am looking forward to going back to Dr. Noroff and highly recommend her.
Very detailed to make sure you understood everything any complications that could occur . Very helpful
Dr. was great. She listened and took time to come to her diagnosis.
Dr. Noroff is very nice and knowledgeable. I like her.
The doctor AND her staff were nothing short of professional, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Noroff and her practice!
Excellent! Very personable. I should have had this procedure done years ago! She was excellent! She described the procedures, and had me wait to assure I did not need stitches.
Dr. Noroff is very personable and knows what she is doing. She makes you feel comfortable and is very nice. Staff is very nice too.
She was very professional yet down-to-earth.
She was reassuring. My skin was just itching and i had no idea why. She said she will do everything she can to get to the problem
Was my first visit, staff were very courteous and professional, waiting time 20mins. Dr Noroff was extremely professional, made me feel very relaxed and conducted the procedure effortlessly. She has definitely been added to my 'will go again' doctors!
She's great. The office could use a good cleaning though... Rusty cabinets and all a little old. But the doctor was awesome, funny, and easy to talk to.
knows her stuff!
It was a really nice visit hardly had to wait (I got there a little early) she is very pleasant and I would recommend her definitely.
Thoroughly enjoyed meeting the Dr.
I thought she was an excellent doctor. She definitely listened more than any other doctor I have been to. I would definitely recommend going to her before anyone else.
I love Dr. Joan!!! She is very friendly and gets the job done, pronto!! :-)
Very knowledgeable, makes you feel comfortable, kind staff, highly recommend
Very professional, saw my problem & corrected it. Short answer, I feel much better.
Wait time was a little long, but, love Dr Noroff. She listened, but was quick and informative. Removed a small red mole there and then, while another Dr said he would have to schedule surgery!!!!, to do it.
My first impression of Joan Noroff is that she's a good doc.
Dr. Noroff was very knowledgeable and explained all my treatment options. From my first visit, it appears she really cares about her patients. I plan to go back to her for my dermatology needs.
Office does not seem clean. Waiting room is very nice, but examination room was the opposite: surfaces and floor looked dirty; glass jars of cotton swabs, gauze, etc had rusted tops and looked moldy or something; next to those was large, open container labeled "biohazard"; exam chair looked about 35 years old and just grossed me out, as did the other chairs. The whole experience felt like some kind of weird scam (based on cleanliness, demeanor of office staff, the other patients, and experience with doctor).
I've been to see her before and didn't have a long wait, this time I waited almost 35 minutes and had to leave as I had other things scheduled. So no comment on this visit this time.
QUICK AND PAINLESS
I felt comfortable.
Very quick and straight to the point.
She was very informative and very helpful to my issues. I would recommend her to anyone.
Made my problem worse and I waited an hour and a half to be seen. Not a good listener.
I am very confident in this doctor.
Dr. Noroff was very good, she explained all the facts I needed to know about my mole and the she sliced it off and really did a great job. I highly recommend her!
Very knowledgeable and prompt doctors office. Highly recommended
Fantastic as always
It was quick and painless. I booked another apt. and my husband will get checked as well. :-)
No frills office and no nonsense staff. The wait-time was a bit long, but once Dr. Noroff was in the room we got down to business and I was on my way.
Felt like I made the right choice right away
Dr. Noroff introduced herself at the start of the appointment, which I appreciated. She also answered all of my questions. I would recommend Dr. Noroff to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Love Dr. Noroff! She's great; have been going to her for many years!
Great doctor! Very thorough with the cancer screening and helped with cosmetic derm issues as well
She's very good I liked her
Excellent. Professional. Responsive to questions.
She was very informative, and explained everything and all options in a manner that was very easy to understand. I was seen for hyperhydrosis, which I find an embarrassing topic to discuss, but she made me feel very comfortable.
Excellent. Job well done. I am returning in a year.
I enjoyed her I felt comfortable we laughed and I felt confident that the treatment and advice she prescribed will help me and I will be back for follow up visits
Her confidence and mannerism put me at ease, as well as provided me with an assurance that she will advocate for me.
As usual ~~ professional and quick.
Dr. Joan is sweet and quick to prescribe medicines for your needs. However, every time I've been to see her (both in Summit and Jersey City) I've had to wait an ungodly amount of time--this last visit I waited two hours. That's absurd, especially considering she sees you for no more than 10 minutes. I will continue to go to her because she has given me several successful prescriptions for my acne and seems to be a good dermatologist with a lot of patients.
This was my first visit and I loved it! she was very quick answers all the questions you ask and she saves you money on prescriptions.
As usual, very professional treatment given ~~ Dr. Noroff knows her stuff!
Very nice and pleasant. An excellent doctor. Highly recommended!
Dr. Noroff has a great and amiable personality. Unlike other dermatologists in the area, she actually takes the time to listen to her patients before jumping to conclusions. I'll definitely be seeing her again soon!
Dr. Noroff is always on top of things. She knows how to proceed when faced with a challenge.
She's very friendly, knows her stuff and very professional.
Sweet physician, very knowledgable and willing to listen. She took a little extra time with me and I felt confident and informed when I left. Seeing her again in two weeks!
Friendly and helpful.The doctor was in a hurry this time. I did not like that part. other than that, great.
The doctor is very knowledgeable, however she always rushes you, I feel like I wasn't even done talking when she told me that her assistance would "help me out". My appointment was at 9:15AM and she did not arrive to the office until 9:30AM. The staff members are not too helpful or social.
Very professional. Explained my issues and her diagnosis in clear terms and listened closely to my concerns.
I WAITED A WHILE BUT IT WAS WELL WORTH IT. SHE IS THE ONLY DR ON SITE WITH MORE THAN 3 OR 4 PATIENTS AT A TIME. I LOVED HER SHE WAS BEYOND FRIENDLY. I WAS TAD NERVOUS ABOUT SHOWING HER MY ISSUE BUT SHE MADE ME FEEL COMFORTABLE AND KNEW EXACTLY HOW TO RESOLVE IT I SHOULD HAVE CAME TO HER A LONG TIME AGO. THANK YOU SO MUCH DR NOROFF
Dr. Noroff was extremely pleasant and informative. She came in with a smile and explained everything thoroughly, answering all of my questions. If I ever have another skin issue, I will be returning to her!
She was very quick, I found myself wanting to hold her down to ask questions because I felt like I was being rushed, even though there was no one else there. She was ,however, very friendly
Great experience the doctor is straight to the point and she quickly & painlessly performed a procedure on me.
Extremely efficient and pleasant.
Very quick. Not informative..did not ask prior to doing things...not holistic.
To summarize my visit: dirty exam room, long wait time and mostly importantly very low credibility score for Dr. Noroff herself.
Friendly, Very quick
Dr. Noroff is very professional and thorough.
She was very attentive and had great bedside manner.
Dr. Noroff was very knowledgeable and professional! I have been to several Dermatologists with no results, she was able to give me more answers in one day than I've been able to get in 1 year. She was AWESOME!
Very good doctor!!
She is wonderful and easy to talk to, she makes you feel comfortable. Her staff is excellent too.
Love this lady. I wish she worked in NY - then I would make appointments less sparingly! But for now I will make the 2 hour trip. Yes, she is that great. Recommending her to all my family in Jersey.
The visit was very short. She asked very quickly and then gave me a prescription for lab work!
I stopped going because the actual treatment never started even after multiple visits and the wait time is insane
She made me feel comfortable and at ease. Wonderful person!
very pleasant person
I liked Dr. Noroff when I met her BUT the 1hr 15min wait period was a turn off. I was there for 1+ hours before they called my name, 2+ hours in total. I had even arrived early anticipating I would need to fill out paperwork and regretted giving their office that courtesy! Her analysis seemed good, though. Also, office was a bit dirty and used medical supplies were strewn about in more than one location. Not sure I would recommend. Liked her but surrounding circumstances weren't great.
Waited a very long time, but everyone was nice. I have had acne for years and less than a week its disappearing so the wait was worth it
I'm in pain the doctor did not put anesthetic to take skin tags specimen. Office is very dirty
Excellent - also since i don't have ins she worked something out with me!
Nice, kind and willing to help
She is so so great. I am making an appointment for my husband and myself. I have email my other family members that I highly recommend her. Use name for review : Elizabeth Thumann (Mother of Patient)
Dr. Joan Noroff was great! The office, on the other hand, is dirty and needs to be seriously cleaned!
amazing experience- I was terrified of getting a biopsy done and she made it much easier than I thought it was going to be.
My visit was great, Dr Noroff was very sweet and patient. She got straight to the point and told me what I needed to know. the staff was also very polite I would definitely go back again
Dr. Noroff was extremely kind and took care of me well, but she was so busy that she didn't have a lot of time to talk to me. I wish we could have discussed more about what she was prescribing and other ways to help my condition. I trust she knows what she's doing though, she seemed very confident that what she was giving me would help.
I would say that everything was perfect.
Dr. Noroff is great! She's friendly, understanding, and knowledgable- a rarity to find in doctors these days. Highly recommend.
Dr. Noroff was very personable and patiently answered all of my questions and concerns. I will see her again.
Very informative, on time and will visit again. Highly recommend her office!
She was very informative and great physician.
Very nice, very attentive, answered all my questions.
Wonderful. Thank You!!!
Dr. Joan Noroff was very good in listening to patient and the medicine she prescribed really worked well and healing. Thanks a lot doctor!
It was very pleasant. Dr. Noroff was great, this was my first visit and I really loved everyone in the office. The ladies were great and pleasant. My husband and I are very pleased. Definitely, will recommend others.
Dr Joan was very easy to talk to and put my daughter immediately at ease that we absolutely were going to be able to take care of her problem. I am so glad to have found her!
I'm very impressed...great doctor.
