I came to Dr. Dubner after being completely unhappy somewhere else and desperate for answers. I can't say enough about him. He was recommended to me and I am so grateful. He spent plenty of time with me the first visit and said he takes ownership of his patients. He was professional, calming and answered all my questions and I still follow up with him and would not go anywhere else!

He is the best Thyroid Dr. in the world.

You know the term "My life is in my doctors hands", well I truly felt that with Dr. Dubner. He came quite highly recommended by several doctors and friends of ours so I went to see him confidently. Not only was he professional and courteous, but he listened to all my fears and concerns. He did a biopsy in the office very delicately becuase I was afraid and he called with the results in the timeframe he said. Thankfully, my tumor was benign but still needed surgey to remove it. Recovery was alittle difficult but every situation that came up, he gave me a timeframe of when things would return to normal and they did! He truly is a caring wonderful doctor and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I found the office staff that greeted us to be very friendly. The Dr. was warm and welcoming. He took the time to ask me about my history and followed with a thorough exam. Received good news and a follow-up in 3 months. I felt confident in the doctor because of his caring attitude. His smile was warm and genuine. Pleasant experience and highly recommend him.

Went in for my scheduled appointment and at that time, I was told I needed a referral or i would have to sign a form saying i was responsible for the whole cost of the doctors visit. It would be helpful that they tell you if a referral is needed before hand

I was quite skeptical about seeing this doctor after the reviews I read online. I must say, other than having to wait to get an intitial appointment, my experience from start to finish was an exceptional one. Dr. Dubner took the time to carefully explain the problem I had and what the best course of treatment was. He answered every one of my questions and addressed every concern that I had. His office staff was extremely courteous and helpful

Dr Dubner is a remarkable surgeon. He is a true artist . I met at least 6 doctors for consultations and I knew he was the Dr. for me right away. I needed breast reduction and was so at ease with his warm bedside manor and confidence. Every nurse I spoke to at LIJ when I went for pretesting told me he was the BEST, a total perfectionist and that they would all use him, or have already. My results are beautiful, my surgury was virtually painless, and I feel like a new person. His staff is very efficient, especially Dee who coordinates the surgury with such simplicity. I cannot say enough about how warm and sensitive a man Dr. Dubner is and how caring and honest he is. I urge anyone reading this to go meet him will be blown away by his hands of gold and his expertise. I intend to use him in the future and have already given his name out many times.

I am so upset about this doctor he is all about money ,he did the surgery on my thyroid the surgery went well but he left me a bad scare on my neck that he said he will fix it,the second visit I went to him he took me to the room and then he sent me out and told his secretary to tell me he doesn't accept my insurance what a BS. I was young I didn't know how to Handel it. But I am glad that I could write about him to say what unprofessional doctor he is and not good cosmetic Surgen!!!

I can't say enough about him. He has been so kind and gentle . If ever I had a problem he would always return my calls and take care of me. Wonderful surgeon and I thank God for him taking care of my oral cancer.

Dr. Dubner is a great surgeon, I had no problems with him other than the factthat he takes forever to make follow up calls. However his offie staff is horrible! They are extremely rude, they do not make you feel comfortable at all. I cringe everytime i have to call or go in there because they treat you like garbage.

As a performer, I was concerned not only with the possibility of a cancerous thyroid but the career impact after a partial thyroid removal. Not only did Dr. Dubner accurately diagnosed my problem but took great care to ensure the proceedure was as painless as possible but the results left little impact on my voice.

The care that I received from Dr. Dubner has been excellent. He has performed two surgeries for me and the pre and pest care has been great. The wait time in the office is also one of the best of my DR's. In the exam room in 15 to 20 min. Staff has been been OK. not overly friendly, but polite. Biggest complaint is that they are always changing insurances. i have two different ones that also change so haven't had too many problems.

Rude and incompetent staff, don't waste your time: Although my insurance company verified that he is in my plan, his staff insisted that he was not. They said they only took certain people in my plan and I was not one of them. Untrue, said the insurance c
