Ratings for Dr. Robert Backstein
I have been to Dr. Rob Backstein for at least 20 lipomas over the past year. He has always made me feel very comfortable and done a superb job all in all. He’s also a personable guy that knows how to talk patients through the procedures and lower the anxiety level. The fee has also been more than fair given the quality of the facility and surgery. JDT
A huge THANK YOU needs to be given to Dr. Backstein and nurse Bella! I was 8 months pregnant when I went in for an infected cyst removal. After lots of extreme pain and runarounds from other doctors, I was taken in by Dr. Backstein with the Toronto Dermatology clinic. Dr. Backstein consulted with me and let me know that due to the size of the cyst and the location (chest bone) there would be a large scar. However, even though it was large his precision has left me with little visibility of the scar. During the procedure I started to have a panic attack probably due to pregnancy hormones and relief that it was finally being done. Dr. Backstein talked me through while Bella held my hand and wiped my face. This care was greatly appreciated, especially at 8 months pregnant. I would highly recommend him to anyone and I am so thankful that he was able to see me. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
I was full of anxiety for a skin cancer removal procedure I had scheduled but the doctor had a very calming presence and even better a very light hand. The needle injection was barely noticeable and the procedure was smooth. I'm happy with the results of the scar and the process overall. I'd highly recommend this doctor.
