Ratings for Dr. Marla Dubinsky
This is the best Dr. you will ever find to treat IBD. Her partners at Mount Sinai are also wonderful, but her knowledge of the latest information and her expertise helps treat the whole person, not just the symptoms. I truly believe she saved my daughter and continues to help her navigate through this chronic disease. She is amazing and so is her PA, Blossom, and the rest of the staff. They are all kind, considerate, and genuinely care. They listen to everything and take stock and offer alternatives. We followed her from LA and travel from across the country to see them and cannot say more about how lucy we are to have found her.
Although she is a great doctor and really knows her stuff relating to IBD, especially pediatrics she is pretty darn cocky and full of herself. If you have any sort of opinion on your health or treatment plan then she closes up and gets a bit sassy. It's seems like the "her way or no way" kind of situation. It is nice though that she is very determined to continue her research in IBD, because we need all the info and discoveries we can get!
I am an adult woman with ulcerative colitis and had been told having another baby was out of the question because of the severity of my disease - although maybe I could try this woman in LA... My insurance didn't cover visits to her; but she was worth every penny. (Funny, Insurance would cover my ever mounting drug costs and my increasing hospital stays as I starved to death, but would not pay to send me to a dr who could help...) Not only did she get me into "remission" quickly, but she and her staff gave me information on IBD nutrition, stress management, and we had many conversations about pregnancy, breastfeeding, and then parenting while being on medication and dealing with flare-ups. I have now moved to Canada and Dr. Dubinsky's advise and care have enabled me to have informed and meaningful conversations with my new doctors. Now, I'm looking forward to our new baby! Worth Every Penny!
The best, most caring, most knowledgable doctor you can ever find for your child who has IBD. you see a RN, nutritionist, social worker and the doctor at each visit without being charged extra. She is always available to me day or night. She has dedicated her life to this battle and to her patients. She is a wonderful, wonderful person.
