This was my first time there, and it was only for a routine check up. I had a resident examine me first and then Dr. Rosenbaum performed the same exam. So I got checked out twice for the same price! Bothwere very nice and very professional, answering all of my questions. Highly recommend.

Had a great experience at Dr. Rosenbaum’s office. Reception staff were friendly and I was seen right away after filling in some paperwork by his resident, Dr. Cheng. She had a great bedside manner and put me at ease while gatheringinformation. I was then seen by Dr. Rosenbaum, who was very knowledgeable, professional and understanding. Overall, would recommend!

While Dr. Rosenbaum was effective at assessing my issues and giving a prognosis, I found him to be patronizing and my overall experience was negative. I came in to the office, acknowledging that my issues were minor and I just wantedto be absolutely sure that I should not be worried, and Dr. Rosenbaum made me feel stupid and overdramatic. His resident?/PA? was awesome, kind and was great at listening and acknowledging my concerns.

He spent less than 5 minutes with me, insisted that I remove my IUD without even asking for a reason why I had it in the firstplace. Made me remove my clothing to check a "rash" that does not exist or did I complain about!

Dr. Rosenbaum and his resident were both incredibly friendly and addressed my concerns perfectly. They let me know my treatment options and we’re perfectly happy to talk me through them, as well as answer any questions I have. The women workingthe front desk were also incredibly nice and welcoming, and made my experience great! Would highly recommend to anyone

If you’re looking to actually have a doctor take time out of his day and listen to your symptoms this is the wrong place for you. Super arrogant, does not listen and is afraid of you using the internet to knowledge yourself before coming in.

After reading many positive reviews on Dr. Rosenbaum, I have to say I was disappointed. He quite clearly had no time to meet with me and rushed between meeting with me and alternating visits to two other patients during my appointmenttime (of only fifteen minutes). He didn't bother to ask any questions, was insincere and condescending, and most troublesome of all: he did not ask to touch me or ask to inspect my skin before he either looked closely (face inches away from the skin) or physically pulled my patients gown off of me to look at my skin. I found this behavior, coupled with his inatentiveness and overall poor bedside manner wholly disconcerting. I will not see him again and will not recommend him to others.

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.

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.
