How was your experience with the doctor?I only needed to wait about 5 mins. Exam was good and he was pleasant and answered my questions. The whole event lasted about 10 mins once I went in.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was one of the most awful healthcare experiences I've had in recent memory. Dr. Rosenbaum was extremely condescending, abrupt, rude, and did not read my chart. He handed me unprofessional, crumpled print outs of notes and names of medicines, and told me to choose what I wanted, with practically no explanation. When I told him that I felt like I wasn't being heard, and that I felt rushed, he shrugged and said, "go somewhere else." I'm shocked, disappointed, and left without the help I needed.

How was your experience with the doctor?Uncaring. Made it clear I was in his opinion wasting his time. I've seen him twice and both times he comes across as totally indifferent. I would rather wait six months than see him again.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rosenbaum left a very good impression. He was professional, competent, and caring. He provided me with a printed "outline" of my condition that neatly summarized the essentials. Dr. Rosenbaum took his time to answer all my questions and his instructions were very clear and easy to follow. The office staff are very friendly and welcoming as well!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Rosenbaum and his colleague were so great. They put me at ease by transparently explaining a treatment process that could work for me. They provided me with several options to pursue and even took my financial situation into account when reviewing them with me. They asked me relevant questions and had a sense of humor too. I would recommend them to my family and friends. Thanks!!

How was your experience with the doctor?Superb clinical care! I was surprised and delighted to be able to make an appointment with Dr. Rosenbaum with just one day’s wait. Both Dr. Rosenbaum and his resident were thoroughly professional, engaging and caring. They took care of my dermatological problems most efficiently and effectively. I am hoping I can now make Dr. Rosenbaum my regular dermatologist that I will see periodically.

How was your experience with the doctor?At first, I felt a bit guilty showing up a good half hour early. But the front desk was friendly and called me in pretty quickly. The initial consult was with a med student, then Dr. Rosenbaum stepped in to explain and confirm the next steps with me. Super efficient visit. and I was in and out by my appointment time.

How was your experience with the doctor?This man has absolutely no bedside manors, so much so I balled my eyes out before he left the room. Sure wish doctors wouldn’t judge you right off the bat with your symptoms and your appearance. So glad I went to another dermatologist. Do not waste your Time ... you may have a cancer packet tossed at you as I did.

How was your experience with the doctor?I was satisfied with the interaction with Dr. Rosenbaum, although he wasn't very engaged but the person (I guess a trainee) did not have the best bedside manners. He did not introduce himself or exhibit any interest in addressing me well as a patient.

How was your experience with the doctor?I saw Dr Rosenbaum for the first time for a routine visit but had a question about something in particular. Both the resident in his office and Dr Rosenbaum were extremely helpful and informative, as well as kind and generous with their time. I had enquired about a small procedure I thought I might be able to schedule for a later date and was delighted when Dr Rosenbaum was able to do it at this appointment. My questions were answered thoroughly and I was very pleased. I would certainly recommend Dr Rosenbaum.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a terrible experience with Dr. Rosenbaum. Regardless of how experienced or knowledgeable he is, he needs to treat his patients with more respect. It felt like me being there was a huge inconvenience to him; the moment he walked in, he just said what the diagnosis was and when I started to ask a question, he interrupted and said, "do you have a better diagnosis for this?" I get that I wasn't a skin cancer patient but I left the clinic feeling absolutely disrespected and still had several unanswered questions mostly because I wanted to leave as soon as possible.

How was your experience with the doctor?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! Both were very nice and very professional, answering all of my questions. Highly recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?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 wanted to 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.

How was your experience with the doctor?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. I would 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.
