Dr. Rovner is an extremely competent physician who knows his stuff. Don't mistake his efficiency for what some people have erroneously misinterpreted as being too quick. WRONG! He's just not wasting anybody's time--yours, his, or anyone else in his always busy waiting room!!

Was 40 mins late taking me in. Receptionist never said anything about running late. Dr. Came busting into the room. Immediately asked what I was there for, pull out his pad and started writing a prescription. Not asking questions about me and my history. I'm not one to jump on medication unless needed. I asked about alternative methods and he said they would be a waste of my time. Go to doctor that cares about helping people and not just write prescriptions.

I saw Dr. Rovner for a problem which other dermatologists misdiagnosed. He helped me immediately. Highly recommended!

Impatient and rude. Would not even attempt to listen to what I had to say. Felt very discouraged upon leaving his office.

I've been a patient of Dr. Rovner's for 20 years. He is knowledgeable, experienced and trustworthy. He diagnosed my autoimmune disease in one visit that had perplexed other specialists for 3 months, he has seen my father for skin cancer, my mother for a drug reaction, my son for acne. Unlike every other dermatologist in the area who have 6 month waiting lists, Dr. Rovner can see you within a couple of weeks, and always sooner when emergent. Dr. Rovner's bedside manner is not a strength for him, but he is not a generalist and I would rather have a correct diagnosis and treatment plan than someone to chat about what is going on in my life. If you want someone to spend 15 minutes with you, holding your hand, and telling you repeatedly that you have nothing to worry about; then I suggest you wait 6 months to see someone else. If you need a dermatologist to assist your family doc/pediatrician/internist with the diagnosis and treatment of your dermatologic issue, then you can count on Dr. Rovner to do it efficiently and correctly.

Went in for a screening to get some moles checked out. Lady at the front desk greeted me with a stern "Be with you in one minute." I took a seat and waited for 15 minutes before the lady told me that I should have reminded her that I was there because "the office gets so busy that she ends up forgetting about people." There was only one other person in the waiting room. Doc spent about 5 minutes glancing at me, and told me I had nothing to worry about. Told me I was young (34) and didn't have anything to worry about, and not to be afraid of the sun. That would have been music to my ears, had he actually looked me over, examined my moles closely, or even asked me about about my medical history. Waste of a $50 co-pay.

I was referred to Dr. Rovner by my GP whom I trust. Dr. Rovner, without delay, took care of my concern. I believe he had taken the time to pre-assess the most likely issue. He also spotted a potentially cancerous growth and took tissue to be biopsied. I have a stye which he will address later. He checked my skin for other potential concerns and answered all questions I had. He was reassuring and did not make mountains out of mole(hills). He was friendly but didn't waste his nor my time. I would highly recommend him.
