Ratings for Dr. Birgit K. Toome
The Vineland office is very hard to deal with. They cancelled our appointment for no reason and forgot to call so after rushing there to make it on time I found out all doctors had left for the day and they’ve didn’t seem to care that they did that’s to us. It’s always a long wait. They have cancelled appointments numerous times and called a hug inconvenience since my son is on accurate and require a blood work before every appointment. I get conflicting information almost everytime I go. I feel like they don’t care about the patients at all and it’s a nightmare dealing with them. I can’t wait for my sons accurate treatments to be over so I don’t have to deal with them anymore.
The worst experience ever waited 2 hours in waiting room, staff was awful fill forms and pay copay as soon as I walked in and then NOTHING! No help. Dr Toome spent 6 mins with my child and did not complete an exam???? We wanted a specialist to confirm or correctly diagnose if my child had shingles as her pediatrician had diagnosed and to have a complete body scan since we were paying the "specialist fee". She looked at the area for 2 mins wrote 4 scripts and said i'll see you in two weeks and left. This was a total of 6mis after we waited 2 hours and I explained to my young child while we waited the importance of skin health and how the doctor was going to check her body to make sure are her freckles were healthy.....NOTHING. Waste of my time that I left work for, I have no idea of who to believe since her diagnosis was different than pediatrician??? FOUR SCRIPTS that the copay was 250.00 and I have FANTASTIC insurance. AWFUL-AWFUL- AWFUL...see someone who cares about what they do, employs a courteous knowledgeable staff and runs as close as they can to apt time....25-30 acceptable..not 2 hours+ :(
Well I have been to a few dermatologists in my time but this one takes the cake. Argued with me about a referral my insurance company said I needed DrToome said I didn't because "it's not written on ur card. Wanted to schedule future appt every 2 weeks to treat a wart ( can u say compound W). The few minor skin problems I went for " weren't covered but we take credit cards, Sign here" Shoving papers in my face, talking over me. So condensing, arrogant, and money hungry . Sells real estate on the side What is that about?. Dressed like she was going to a bar at the beach. Keep looking.
I had my first and only visit with Dr. Toome. I was more than disappointed with this physician and her office. I waited 2 hours to see her for 2 minutes. Dr. Toome did not introduce herself to me or even ask me what I came to see her for. She waltzed in the room with 2 nurses and told me to sit on the table so she could examine me. I forced her to listen to me for about 30 seconds and she seem annoyed that I even tried to speak to her. She focused on talking to the nurses in the room so they could tell me what treatment I needed. They sold me an over priced cleansing product I did not need. They failed to mention, I could purchase something over the counter for much cheaper. Her nurse spent more time trying to sell me on laser hair removal than I for the reason I was actually there. I was extremely disappointed in the experience from start to finish. Worst bedside manner of any physician I have ever met! I will not be following up with her.
This place honestly needs to be shut down. Very unprofessional ghetto staff members. Toome herself was very rude to me and gave me different medication (pimple meds) instead of treating my condition. This made it get worst. Switched to Robert but he knew nothing of how to treat my condition. I also overheard staff making rude comments about patients. Dont go here if you have a long term disease. They are horrible and unprofessional.
Dr. Toome EHT office is amazing her staff is GREAT very Professional and treated me in a way that I felt very comfortable. They explained everything to me. I suffer from severe Psoriasis and they went over all options. My daughter has been see in dermatologist for years for acne and we switched to Appearance Derm a few years ago and she is satisfied as well. Leea Arsenault is the nurse practitioner I have seen and she is amazing very professional.
Toome is a joke. You will wait at least 2 hours to have her look at you for 5 seconds and have the 3 nurses that she brought in tell you what to take, buy, and slap on your face. HOWEVER, the estheticians are very helpful. At least the 2 that I've had were. Dr. M is very nice as well.
