Been with this doctor since 2001 to 2011. Never had any issues. She was very helpful in diagnosis and emergency visits.

Went in with a sliced baby finger on a Sunday at 4 pm Although abviously hearing impaired, with a little repetition she was able to get it all in and stitched up my finger with as little pain as possible. She certainly enjoyed chatting away with my husband and getting him to assist her with the stitching. A strange experience but in the end I left with a fixed baby finger and a smile on my face. She is abrupt but considering she was the only doctor and there were at least 50 patients in the space of 3 hours, I certainly understand. If I wanted chat time with a doctor I woud make an appointment with my gp, if I want an emergency fixed, I would go back to her, my finger is still on my hand.

LOVE HER!!!! I, too, am an MD, just moved here from toronto with no GP yet. She is a sweetheart. Intelligent, clear and consise. We bantered back and forth laughing. She is fantastic, her staff are amazing. I am in awe re some of the negative reviews. speaking as a doc, i must get the word out that we are in fact humans and not robots. Wwe have good days and bad days like everyone. before critisizing think about your own profession and how easily you get frustrated with morons in the workplace!!

Reading all these negative comments about Dr. Rothstein gives me no choice but to say this; This morning was my 3rd or 4th visit with Dr. Rothstein. Once again the visit was short, clear, right to the point and I came out of there feeling reassured and grateful. I like people who go directly to the point and this is exactly who she is. I really appreciate her. She has seen so many patients in her career. I strongly believe we have a lot to learn and retain from this wise Lady.

I'm fairly certain that Dr. Rothstein is verging on deafness. Even though I was sitting right beside her, she couldn't hear what I was saying unless she was looking right at me; there's little doubt that she's lip-reading. In any case, listening is not among her best skills. But since it's a walk-in clinic, we're sort of stuck with her until she either retires or is forced out because of incompetence and surliness.

This doctor is incompetent, unprofessional and rude. She was the first doctor that I went to see when I had symptoms of what turned out to be mono. I told her that I felt weak, tired and had a consistent fever. She asked me if I was a student, what I studied and if I had exams coming up (which I did). She proceeded to question me about my caffeine intake, and without checking my temperature, told me to "lay off of the coffee". I found her to be incredibly judgmental because she presumed that I was a stressed student who wanted an exam deferral. I would not recommend her to anyone. Spare yourself the poor bedside manner and the gaudy jewellery.

I should start by this she also HAD FORCED ME TO MAKE AN ABORTION!!! Thanks God she agreed to send me to Genetic Consulting before we took our decision! I would NOT RECOMMEND her for following up any PREGNANCY. She did not read my results for 3 wks /Twice!/ and did not even bother to refer me to a OBGYN before they closed their walk-in clinic for summer renovations, leaving me without an option for follow-up 25wks pregnant. On the other hand, the hospital will not allow any OBGYN to follow-up my pregnancy as I need REFERRAL and I don't have a family doctor either. SO THIS SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK. As now without any documents for the follow-up so far i had to go to another walk-in clinic just to be referred to OBGYN. OMG!!!!

I saw Dr. Rothstein for 5 years and regret deeply that I didn't stop seeing her immediately. She is harshly critical of her staff (in front of patients), rude, abrupt, judgmental, listens poorly, and I question her competence in diagnosing and prescribing. I would advise against taking children to see her; she admits openly that she does not like kids. She was indifferent to toddler, had no idea how to talk to him. I would strongly advise against seeing her for pregnancy, mental health, or sexual issues; her knowledge in these fields is sorely limited ad her abrupt nature makes it difficult to feel at ease with issues of a more sensitive/personal nature. When, finally, I summoned the courage to tell her I was seeking a new GP, she asked why. I told her that I'm not comfortable with her bedside manner and specified some instances in which she was rude or made inappropriate comments. She retorted angrily that I had insulted her and refused ever see me again.

Avoid at all cost! Did not listen to me, misdiagnosed, gave wrong treatment. Was pushy, arrogant and condescending.
