Verified Patient Reviews
I thought Dr. Ilowite was great. I really liked that he took the time to explain what he was seeing. So many times I feel like doctors are in a rush to get you in and out of the office that they forget to break down what they are talking about, but not Dr. Ilowite. He is very personable. Even though it was my first visit, I felt like I've been there before.
1st visit, all good. Dr. took time to answer questions and staff was very nice.
Dr. Ilowite was absolutely fabulous. I'm so glad that I found him on ZocDoc. He was incredibly personable, friendly, and knowledgeable. He was genuinely curious about me and got to know me on a personal level. He went in depth with why I have skin problems and gave me some great solutions. Book an appointment with him!
Dr. Ilowite was very professional. He answered all of my questions with patience and made sure he went through all of my options. This was my first time seeing him and he made me feel very comfortable. Would definitely recommend him!
Very pleasant and professional experience.
Extremely professional and kind. I went to this appt alone, and when he had to examine my skin, he brought in a female chaperone to make sure i would be comfortable; something i found to be very professional. He also took the time to explain everything thoroughly in an easy to understand manner. Everything was very clean and sterile. Would definitely recommend!

Great guy, explains everything, pretty much painless, I got there right before my appointment, but the wait was around 45 minutes.
It was my first visit and just a consultation, but so far, Dr. Ilowite has been very good. Friendly, good handshake, to the point, didn't push anything on me and took the time to listen. Would recommend.

Dr. Ilowite was very professional, pleasant and informative.
Everything went very well. Very satisfied.
Great Dr. Very personable, knowledgeable and caring. Happy to have found him!
Dr. Ilowite is very good and he was able to tell us very clearly what my daughter's condition was and why we need not worry about it at all. She has mild eczema but he said as children grow older (she is 7 now) in most of the cases, the condition is naturally taken care of as skin becomes bit more oily, etc. We knew there would be waiting around to do, based on previous comments. So I was prepared somewhat, but I did miss an important dinner meeting, because by the time he saw us it was about 30 min late and by the time we finished it was well past an hour since the appointment time. I am not complaining, it is just that I had a pre-existing dinner meeting, but I did not wanted to miss the doctor's appointment. Family comes first anyways. Overall, I will definitely recommend Dr. Ilowite in a heartbeat. He is my kind of doctor - lots of experience that comes across when he carefully answers your questions, tells you the reasons why symptoms exists, and why we need or need not worry about certain things (such as sustained application of steroids for instance). So I will recommend him to my friends and family. And great clinic location too, and very clean facility.
Professional. Great with children and teenagers
It went great!
I have been going to Dr. Illowite for years. He's a good guy
Excellent physician. Was very pofessional and caring.
Was able to get in right at the appointed time. He was very friendly and thorough. He explained the diagnosis and the procedure he was performing so that it was easily understood.
Better than expected.
Came in with skin cancer and left without it. Painless and had service with a smile. Dr ilowite knows what he's doing.
Very pleasant first experience!
I was very comfortable with him
The doctor was very professional and helpful. He provided a treatment option and a coupon for the necessary medication as well as a free sample.
Dr Ilowite is a professional who actually takes the time to listen to you and treats you like a person worthy of his attention. His bedside manner is incomparable! I had to wait a bit to actually see him, but it was truly worth it to have someone address me as a person instead of a number.
Excellent. He takes the time to explain in detail.
We have seen Dr. Ilowite for a number of years now to treat moles and skin tags, check for skin cancer, etc. He is very pleasant and knowledgeable. My daughter had a skin infection on her scalp that other doctors were treating as eczema with steroid creams. He knew that it had to be either a bacterial or fungal infection. He cultured it and it turned out to be MRSA (a serious staph infection). She was prescribed all of the antibiotics she would need to clear it and fortunately she had no other complications.
Very good bedside manner. Made sure I understood all options available. Would highly recommend him.
Great visit!! Thanks to ZocDoc no paperwork to fill out in the office. Clean office. Very nice staff. We were seen very quickly. Doctor was focused on the patient. Double checked to ensure that medication he was recommending is safe for the little ones. Offered helpful suggestions for maintenance care. Highly recommended.
Very friendly and explained everything
After visiting other doctors with bad results, finally, I was able to find Dr. Robert I. who was able to help me and my girls. Good and knowledgeable in his field.
He answered all my questions, and I'm very pleased.
He is the best Dermatoligist! I would never go anywhere else. He is extremely thorough and easy to talk to. Highly recommend!
wonderful experience, very friendly and took the time to listen to all of my issues
Dr. Illowite was an amazing dermatologist that I've had the pleasure of seeing. He was always extremely kind to me and answered every question I had at my appointments and would return my phone calls within 24hrs but usually sooner. He doesn't employ PA's or RN's which I personally really like; he sees all of his patients himself.
A true professional, intelligent, excellent demeanor. I cannot recommend him enough.
Excellent Doctor, took the time to hear my concerns
A very congenial Dr. At age 64 It was my first time going to any Dr for a skin exam. I had expected the screening to take awhile. It took about 10 minutes. I was glad that he didn't find anything of significance, but I wondered if the exam had been rushed. I'm going to trust that he knew what he was doing, and return in a year as he suggested.
He is very knowledgeable and fun
Everything was fast and efficient. Dr Ilowite went over the details quickly about any concerns and did a brief checkup. I was able to be seen on short notice. There's plenty of parking.
All of my questions were answered and medical needs fulfilled by the most personable Dr in Somerset County--Dr Ilowite. He is a keeper.
Very professional and appropriate waiting time, thanks
Excellent Dr. Does not force unnecessary visits to bill insurance. If possible, does follow up over the phone.
Really liked the Doctor and will continue to use him.
The lady at the desk was not professional . The patients who had his appt after me was seen by the doc first . Instead of apologizing for the mix up, she lied to my face. (This was waiting for over 30 min)
Dr Ilowite is always thorough, friendly and professional, all rolled into one. I travel from another county to see him, and it is well worth it.
The doctor was very patient and made me feel very comfortable. Thank you
I like him. He spends time with me and never rushes me. He answers all my questions.
He's a great guy and a knowledgeable doctor from what I can tell.
He was great! I waited was seen half and hour after my appointment time, but he answered all of my questions when I was in the room. Very friendly and plan on returning if the need should arise!
Dr. Ilowite was great—quick and efficient diagnosis and prompt care. He even threw in a bunch of free samples so I wouldn't have to pay for a script! The only downside was the 40 minute wait.
Despite waiting a bit, I would go back again. I came to get a 2nd opinion and I was glad that I did :) I would have no problem switching and having him as my regular dermatologist.
He is direct and to the point! I like that!
Knowledgeable Doctor. Pleasant environment
He was awesome!!! Attentive and informative!
My first visit. Very pleased.
This is a fantastic doctor. My Mom has advanced stage Alzheimer's and a long history of skin cancer. Her former dermatologist passed away and I was in search for someone new, but was not at all interested in the large group practices, it is too overwhelming for her. Dr. Ilowite was calm, nurturing and just perfect for my Mom. His office person is also delightful and caring - which these days is not the norm. I highly recommend this practice.
Great visit. He's great with kids. He spent a long time with us, answered tons of our questions. Hoping his suggestions work for our son's excema!
He was Great! Extremely polite and very informative. He answered every question I had. I would definately recommend him. 2 THUMBS UP!!!
Dr. Ilowite was extremely friendly and willing to answer questions. I would highly recommend him.
Doctor Robert Ilowite took the time to listen to our concerns and showed interest in helping to find the best solution. We left with a feeling that he cared for his patients and based on our visit I would recommend him to others.
Dr. Ilowite is one of the best doctor's I have been to. He takes the time to expain things and answer questions. In addition, he personally calls you to follow-up on your condition. I have been to the office 3 times so far. After my first visit, he called me twice to follow-up with me. This is a hugh plus as I always have in the back of my mind that I need to call and make another appointment but never find the time, with him checking on my condition, it helps me to make follow-up appointments. He is very caring and I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Thorough, friendly, informative and helpful, as always.
The office was quiet and clean. The woman working at the front was very nice (on the phone and in person). Dr. Ilowite was very personable and friendly. He seems to genuinely care about his patients. He was helpful and honest when I decided to ask about a procedure (that was more cosmetic). Even though, he told me I could take my time to think about it and come back another day. I made up my mind and he was able to do the procedure immediately! I highly recommend him.
Great doctor and staff! Left the office feeling good :-)
As always, my visit was excellent. No time constraints, super friendly and informative. All issues addressed completely. He truly cares about his patients.
Dr. Ilowite is an outstanding dermatologist. He is the only dermatologist I trust.
very thorough- listened to all my concerns and addressed them clearly.
The wait time was shorter than for the other dermatologists. Office was clean. Doctor and his assistant were very courteous. What I really loved was that doctor followed up personally with my test results and had asked how I was feeling. That is far more than most typical doctors are willing to provide these days.
