Verified Patient Reviews
He was very confident and knowledgeable, which is why I went to a doctor rather than treat myself :)
Dr. Moraru was very professional and courteous. Most importantly he was very thorough with his examination, explained everything in a way that I could understand and has a wonderful bedside manner.
Dr. Moraru is very competent and polite in is approach and practice. I have been to him numerous times. I would highly recommend him!
Dr. Moraru was thorough and patient when I asked questions. He took the time to explain to me to how to check for moles.
Excellent service the nurses the women were so helpful caring for me the wait was short the paperwork was quick great place
He's all about the money. Wants you to come back repeatedly for appointments to get more money. Cancels your appointment if his day doesn't fill in. Very unprofessional.
HE IS GREAT
I did not enjoy my appointment with Dr. M. I found the exam rooms to be dirty and old. Not to mention, the front office was messy and the staff seemed unprofessional.
Dr. Moraru is very honest and competent. I totally trust him a delightfully return to him for all f my dermatological needs!
Awesome doctor, great bedside manner, and extremely knowledgeable, great experience..!!
First of all this doctor didn't examine my skin just glanced once. Second, he didn't let me talk and gave me a prescription without telling what it was, the side effects, how to take it, etc., and he walked out as I asked him a question about the medicine. Never going back to see this doctor again. One time was more than enough.
Dr. Moraru was immediately friendly and down to earth. He explained everything he was doing, and why. He also expressed concern and support for other (unrelated) health and social issues I mentioned during my visit, even offering to go out of his way to offer assistance. He was very thorough and his staff moved quickly and efficiently.
He was professional, very friendly, and apologetic about the wait time being a bit longer than usual. He exudes confidence which in turn makes a patient feel comfortable about diagnosis and treatment.
Awesome doctor - and thoughtful and courteous staff...
terrific experience; efficient and got right to the point.
Great Dr, took his time to explain and answer all questions that I had.
I am very pleased to have found a doctor in town. He was very professional and kind.
This provider rushed through my appointment barely giving me a chance to ask questions about the medications he was prescribing me. He really was not listening to me or trying to hear my concerns, it felt very uncomfortable. I understand that it was a busy first day back from vacation but the lack of time, respect, and consideration for my needs was not appreciated.
The visit was by far the least thorough I ever had...5 min in and out... While the doctor was very polite, he just glanced through my moles and input some data on his ipad...for a first visit this is very light. I asked but he didn't seem to be bothered and walk out to another patient... I double checked with other professional and they agree it is a very lazy job that could get medical consequences. He also didn't check if I had any in my hair...careless... I lost a copay and will need to get checked by a real thorough doctor now. Avoid this dermatologist.
He was very thorough and answered all my questions. His office was very good with follow up for met perscription.
Very professional and helpful
Had a good experience. Everyone from the staff to the doctor treated me very well.
He did a very poor job of taking the time to explain the situation to me - I did not feel like I had an opportunity to ask questions or gain an understanding of what was going on.
Excellent care and no wait. Great office staff as well.
Dr Moraru is a good doctor- he's very brief with his appointment and could be a better listener and address concerns a bit better, but if you have a straightforward issue, he'll be sure to fix it. I have waited for 45 minutes to be seen (I took a nap on the examination chair). The woman manning the phones however is enough to make me seek out a new dermatologist. Today I called concerning a series of prescriptions that were supposed to be home delivered. The drugs were more than I had ever paid for them, and I expressed concern with the price of one of the drugs, and wanted to know if there were a cheaper alternative. The lady assured me that she'd look into it and followup. A few weeks later and nothing. I call today to find out what's going on, and the lady on the phone today says 'The issue is that you complained about the drug price for x.' Her words. 'Complained.' I said, well yes one of the drug costs went up to more than I anticipated/wanted, and I was supposed to get followup on a generic version/cheaper version. She started talking over me, saying that other patients pay $xx-$xx on their copay etc etc, so I would just take the price of $x. I said, well first of all that wasn't the original price, so maybe they found an alternative but didn't tell me and didn't put the order through. And secondly, it's just very crass to compare me to other patients. Just because one price works for some patients doesn't mean it'll work for others. Very unprofessional and very combative. Train your staff better.
Was seen right away even on a very busy morning. Dr. Moraru seemed very knowledgeable, and staff was pleasant and professional. Definitely recommend.
I was seen fairly quickly but it didn't seem like I was an important patient nor did I feel confident in his prescription. He didn't even examine me - apart from look at me. Now, perhaps he is that trained and knowledgeable in his field that he can just look at me and see what the issue is, but it all just felt a bit rushed. Also, I completed manual forms, and then had the same questions asked of me by the nurse - why bother with the forms at all?
Depressing and outdated office. Ineffective treatment. Got the impression rather than take action to solve the condition it was addressed in repeated visits for multiple chances to charge a co-pay and bill my insurance.
Both Robert Moraru, MD and his staff were professional and courteous throughout my appointment. Dr. Moraru listened attentively to my concerns, spoke with me about my prior medical history, and provided feedback to any issue I addressed during our initial consultation. I would highly recommend Dr. Moraru for anyone seeking a well-qualified and professional dermatologist in the NYC area.
Long wait and a lot of miscommunication within the office. Not sure why there was a time where I was answering the same questions verbally all the same ones I answered on Zocdoc. Waste of time! Also, it was really awkward to strip down on first meeting - was not prepared for this.
Long wait but just feel like it's typical for any doctor apt at this point. Staff was very friendly. The doctor was very nice. Prescribed me meds after quickly examining me. So we'll see how it goes.
He knows his skin and puts you at ease
I didn't actually see Dr. Moraru. I saw another professional in the office. I would have appreciated notice that he would not be in the office. But I was happy with the service that I received.
Dr Moraru was great, listened to my concerns and made me feel comfortable throughout.
Highly recommended and knowledgeable about ethnic scar treatment!
Always an excellent experience. Dr Moraru is highly experienced, capable and thorough. Highly recommended
This was my first visit to Dr. Moraru's office. My regular dermatologist didn't have any availability for over two months and my rosacea was flaring up so I needed to see someone right away. The doctor had an appointment available the same day. The person I spoke to on the phone before the appointment was incredibly nice and polite. The office is no frills but I don't mind that at all. All of the staff was attentive, professional, and thorough. Once my insurance information was cleared up I was out of there in 20 minutes. I will go again for my next appointment.
This was my first time visiting Dr. Moraru. I went for a skin screening, and I found the experience to be exactly what I wanted. Very short wait time, Dr. Moraru performed the exam himself (at other doctors offices, the doctor did not perform the screening) and was he efficient but I did not feel rushed. He also has excellent bedside manner; I felt comfortable and felt that he heard all the concerns I expressed.
conveniant, fast service, and good treatment.
Great experience. Almost no wait, and the doctor was so personable. My appointment was at 12:15, and I was there a bit early - that said, I saw the doctor, had a mole removed, and was on my way by about 12:35. And never felt hurried.
Very efficient. I was in and out of the office in about 30 minutes and that included a quick examination and removing a mole to send to the lab. I thought Dr. Moraru and the assistant were very nice and would recommend the office.
He was very nice and knowledgable and so was his assistant everything was thorough and quick besides the wait time
I felt shuffled out and he barely looked at my issues - a cursory glance was all before doling out prescription. Won't be going back
Very thorough and very professional.
Staff was friendly and doctor was professional and ontime. Prescribed ointment and medicine for my skin rash. Will definitely go back for follow-up.
Very Knowledgeable and of course professional. I was seen right away and all issues addressed. Highly recommended.
Overall great experience. He was was very knowledgeable and helpful. Also, fast and efficient office staff.
didn't even touch my skin. sat down and asked me to remove clothing to expose the area. viewed from a seated position about 3 feet away. prescribed ointment. 5 minutes maximum.
My appointment was pretty short (less than 10 minutes), but Dr. Moraru did come across as very knowledgeable/professional during that time.
Super friendly, and understanding
Dr Moraru quickly checked my skin. He explained the spots I had were not problems and clearly described what bad signs I should look for.
Great doctor. Doesn't sell you. Gets right to the point but listens to your questions. Glad to have him as my regular guy. Short wait- he runs a very good practice.
Dr. Moraru seems like a very smart doctor who knows his craft well. However he isn't the easiest person to talk to and my time with him felt very rushed. He was quick to hand out a prescription without fully explaining my condition or teaching me anything about it. While you should feel confident this doctor can diagnose your condition, you won't leave his office feeling much better about it.
Really nice Dr and staff. Definitely found the right derm to work with.
Doctor Moraru is very kind and helpful. The visit was quite short because he spotted my issue right away but he gave me some creams that are working very well so far. I would definitely go back.
The nurse, secretary, and Robert Moraru are all great ! Love them :)
Very thorough reassuring about ailments.
Not recommended at all. Caused more problems than they solved.
A little quick, but my case wasn't very complicated, and he did ask me before he left if he answered all of my questions.
Very good.He did exactly what was needed. No more
He is a great doctor ! I think I found my dermatologist.
Very nice and professional doctor.
Waited about 1/2 hour to be seen by assistant and then some more by the doctor. Everyone was nice and professional.
Very professional! I felt very comfortable
Very nice clinic - staff very personable and helpful.
He was professional and efficient. He did a thorough exam, answered my questions, and I left feeling very glad I had chosen him as my dermatologist.
The doctor and staff are always kind, sensitive, friendly. It is a pleasure having them as my doctor's office.
It was perfect, no wait and the doctor tended to all of my concerns
I liked him very much-He took one look at me at diagnosed my condition. He did not waste time and thought his staff was very nice as well.
A little rushed but listens to me and responds well.
very pleased and glad I went to him
Dr Moraru was very professional, and very helpful concerning the recommendation and solution to the issue with my skin. I would recommend him to others.
Dr. spent literally two minutes with me - it was like a patient mill. it was very impersonal and I did not feel comfortable asking questions. The whole thing felt very rushed.
The upside of my visit was that this doctor seemed knowledgeable and diagnosed the issues I had very quickly. The downside was that he was quite trigger happy with writing prescriptions and didn't seem interested in equipping me with knowledge about managing my problems. For example, he shrugged off my question when I asked about the possible causes of my skin getting significantly more sensitive each year (I'm only 27 y/o). This doctor is probably for you if you need to get your annual skin checkup, get your prescriptions fast, and get out (my visit was probably under 7 minutes). This doctor is probably the wrong choice if you want to discuss your skin concerns and learn about non-prescription preventative measures for your skin problems.
He was knowledgeable and what he gave me worked...fast! What a relief.
Overall he was professional and prompt. Visit was a bit short, but not sure that's a negative - we covered what I wanted to. His staff was very helpful and knowledgable.
I've seen Dr Moraru on several occasions and every time he has been extremely professional .
Dr Moraru was very quick with the diagnosis. The wait time was great - not more than 10 minutes. He did a small procedure and I was out of there within 45 minutes.
He was very nice and professional.
Really fantastic. Great service.
I got rid of my acne and my skin is super clear now - thanks Dr. Moraru!
It was a very good overall experience. I would recommend going to him
What a wonderful experience! A very efficient and friendly office--no wait time even though I was a new patient. Dr. Moraru was friendly, patient, and most capable. Pretty much what you want--and need--from a medical professional. Two thumbs up!
very attentive and a very helpful staff.
Great doctor, convenient location, but always have to wait half an hour to see him.
Dr. Moraru is smart, professional, courteous and informative. I like him and trust him.
My experience with Dr. Moraru was excellent. Firstly, I was grateful that he accepted my insurance. Usually doctors do not accept my type of insurance at their office and I end up going to a clinic in Brooklyn. This is very new for me as I had never been to a clinic before switching my insurance recently. So I was very happy to be able to see him at his office in Manhattan. Secondly, I was able to make an appointment with him for the very next day, which I was very grateful for, and very surprised. Everyone in his office was very nice, I did not feel rushed, and he was very personable and seemed very knowledgeable. I was impressed by all of the diplomas, certificates and awards that he has earned. And on top of all of this, there was an article in his waiting room showing how he volunteered at Ground Zero to help rescue workers after 9/11. My overall experience with this doctor was excellent and I highly recommend him to others.
He assisted me in a professional manner. Helisten to what I needed and will recommended Dr Moraru in the furture.
Dr. Moraru was professional. I had a very short wait and then had my appointment. He took a look at my issue and gave me some prescriptions. I wished he would explain what kind of medicine he was giving me and possible reasons for my issue.
Very quick, in and out in less than 10 minutes
Friendly and direct for my needs. I will be returning for my follow up ...going to a doctor on a Saturday is also needed for me...its hard to take time off from work during the week
very competent and professional with courteous staff
He was good !
First time visit and it was a pleasure. The staff is friendly and efficient. The doctor is very thorough and gladly asked all questions posed. I would highly recommend him without any reservations.
Dr. Moraru is prompt, answers all of my questions, is very funny--though serious when need be. He respects my concerns and accommodates insurance issues.
Dr. Moraru was nice but I felt a bit rushed.
Dr. Moraru was prompt, pleasant and very helpful! This office is so personable. Also shout out to Valerie West for her assistance in the examining room. They were both happy to get things done ASAP and so great to chat to. I've found my lifetime Derm.
Staff was a bit surly and bedside manner could use work. Doctor seemed to know what he was doing but rest of staff seemed agitated to be there.
Efficient, trustworthy, comprehensive
I had a cyst under my arm and he took care of it. Also he has a great nursing staff. Nurse Valerie was a joy to be around and assisted Dr. Moraru with my procedure. They both took care of me.. Thank you.
Have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes to see him, really helped clear up my eczema, always gives samples and coupons for prescriptions.
Dr. Moraru was pleasant and very helpful! All his staff is friendly and approachable. Will continue to see him.
He was very knowledgeable and solved my issues. Nice guy!
a mensch...(that's a good thing!)
Doctor's office is brand new, spacious, nice & clean. Staff was friendly. Would def go back if need to.
He was very efficient and prescribed quite aggressive treatment immediately for my acne. I thought that he could have been a little more friendly but it was fine. He didn't volunteer any information but answered any question I asked of him.
Pleasant and easy to talk to.
Dr Moraru was punctual and thorough, explaining what he was going to do and why he was doing it. Very friendly office staff. I will definitely be back.
