I thought Dr. Rosenbaum and his PA who saw me were both great. They listened to my concerns and addressed them right away. They encouraged me to make another appointment if my issue did not resolve with the recommended treatment. Iwould highly recommend this office. I saw negative reviews and I think those people must want a doctor that is going to listen to their whole life story. The doc was concise and to the point but definitely did not have poor bedside manner.

De. Rosenbaum is the best dermatologist I’ve ever had. He carefully listened to my concerns, listed treatment options and spent time discussing the pros and cons of each. I have never had a doctor who was so clearly empathetic and mindfulboth of the medical details but also of the effect the illness has on my life.

Dr. Rosebaum was very patronizing - fortunately, his resident was wonderful and answered my questions. It's frustrating to be brushed off while trying to be proactive about my health.

I showed up for my appointment and instead of Dr. Rosenbaum was taken care of by a medical student who was very sweet, but didn't seem quite ready to be handling patients on her own yet. When Dr. Rosenbaum came inhe was very rude and wouldn't let me finish a sentence before interrupting, clearly not listening when I would try to answer his questions and tell him what was wrong. He ordered several blood tests for me, but when I tried to get any information about the tests he seemed annoyed and would barely answer. It doesn't seem like he's there for the patient at all, and it was honestly a terrible experience.

He was completely rude and dismissive. Would not let me explain why i even booked the appointment. Just told me to get undressed when i came for an issue on my foot told me i must have a skin exam first.That was an obvious attempt to make more money. I would not recommend this guy if your looking for someone who cares and takes your concerns seriously. Extremely rude and unprofessional, would not ever see him again. Did not listen to my concern at all, when i called him out on it turned red and left.

Dr. Rosenbaum indicated he would not run my insurance and instead charge me directly. I paid him directly and then received a HUGE bill later that I am now on the hook for that he did not disclose. I went infor a small mole removal and left with a huge surprise bill. I would 100% not return to Dr. Rosenbaum. I only actually save Dr. Rosebnaum for about 2 minutes. The rest of the visit was with a PA. I do go to this same office for my primary care and the front office staff are lovely though and I have no complaints about my primary care.

I went in for an annual skin check. He was nice and reassuring. He listened to my concerns and checked a few areas I was worried about. I gave four stars because the nurse was the one who spent the majorityof the time with me and she performed the thorough skin check alone. The doctor only came in for about 5 minutes and looked me over pretty quickly. Probably that's all that was needed since the nurse didn't find anything, but I would have preferred the doctor to be a little more thorough himself. I would have rated him a 4.5 if that was an option.

This was the rudest Doctor - not only Derm - I have ever seen in my life! First he sent in only his student to check me out and she is the one who "tried" to do a through diagnosis ofme. She couldn't help me at all though with any of my questions, since she was just a BU student. Then when he finally came in, he didn't say one word, just grabbed my face with his hands, looked at it and then started writing a prescription. When I was like wait, and tried to explain to him why I I was in, he said "my assistant already told me everything." and looked super annoyed and then tried to leave the room before asking if I even had any questions! I have never been so rudely brushed away and that to after having to spend money to see a "Specialist." NEVER EVER EVER go see this Doctor. Also, it is quite strange that he had a ton of one star reviews before and that now for some reason they have all disappeared? hm

Could be a good doctor if you are looking for medication for suppression of outbreaks, but not much information on whys or how long (answers may come at follow-up appointment).

Frankly (and anonymously...) the doctor's breath could have smelled more pleasant. His assistant was great; but I only saw the doctor himself for less than five minutes.

Though my apt was mostly for preventative care. I had less than 5 minutes of face time with the doc himself, and the exam was preformed by another staff member. He seemed very busy and rushed when he was with me.

Dr. Rosenbaum is caring, listens to all concerns, and also addresses them. he takes his time to answer all questions and doesnt make you feel like he is in a rush to get you out of there. Very proffessional and seemsto know what he is talking about. Wish I saw him months before for a second opinion i would have gone thru a lot less. Looking forward to knowing I am being taken care of.
