Dear Valued Patients,

During these tough times, I want to let you know about the ways in which I am available to you. I will be accessible throughout the Coronavirus pandemic by online (virtual) consults by clicking the “Book an online consult” in the upper righthand corner. This will direct you to connect with me via a real time face to face consultation on Doxy.Me, a HIPAA/secure telemedicine platform. Most insurance plans, including Aetna, Cigna, BCBS, Oxford and United Healthcare, cover these consultations. For those that aren’t covered, there will be a reasonable fee.

If there is great enough demand, I will be seeing patients in the office on an as-needed basis. These visits should be limited to more urgent matters such as rashes, unusual eruptions, potential infections including abscesses, ongoing systemic medication management for serious diseases, and possible melanomas. If visiting my office would preclude you from a visit to an urgent care center or emergency room, I will do everything in my power to see you. We do not want to overwhelm an already overloaded emergency system with more routine medical problems that can be handled elsewhere.
When considering a visit, I ask that if you have a history of travel to any foreign country within the past month, any recent or current history of fever, cough, upper or lower respiratory symptoms, body aches, or flu like symptoms, or any known contact with Coronavirus, please do not visit my office.

We will be taking the proper and recommended precautions to make your visit as safe as possible including hand-washing, hand sanitizers, sanitizing all surfaces, door handles, masks and eye shields. We will ensure that patient visits are spaced far enough apart so no more than two to three patients are in the waiting room at any time. Please come alone to your appointment to support the ability for social distancing.

As I consider my patients an extension of my family, I encourage you to be as safe as possible and if for any reason, you would like to get in touch, whether for medical or other questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

All my best,
Robin Borkowsky Rubell, MD, FAAD

About Dr. Borkowsky Rubell

Robin Borkowsky Rubell, MD, FAAD, and the experienced staff at 21st Century Dermatology in New York City recognize that there are many criteria by which patients choose a doctor.  Dr. Borkowsky Rubell and her caring staff work together as a team to be responsive, supportive, and understanding of each patient's individual needs.   Dr. Borkowsky Rubell believes that each patient’s journey begins when the appointment is made.  This office philosophy starts from the moment the patient calls and speaks directly with a knowledgeable staff member.  At 21st Century Dermatology, there is no central call center so you will always be greeted by a person intimately associated with the office.  Here you will find the ideal blend of old-fashioned caring along with modern medicine.  Each and every patient is treated as an individual, not simply a number.   To that end, patients are always met by a warm smile when they enter the office.  It is at that time that the patient realizes how rare and special it is to be treated in an intimate boutique office setting.

Dr. Borkowsky Rubell and her staff listen to patients so they can fully understand and address not only their dermatology needs but their emotional needs as well. They recognize the importance of keeping men and women informed about their health issues and look forward to meeting their New York area patients.  

Dr. Borkowsky Rubell's education and medical training include a business degree with Honors from the University of Michigan, a master’s in Nutrition from Columbia University, and a medical degree from New York Medical College where she graduated in the top 10% of her class and was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. She completed her internship at St. Vincent's Medical Center in New York City and then went on to complete her dermatology residency at the State University of New York (SUNY) Health Science Center at Brooklyn.

Dr. Borkowsky Rubell is certified by the American Board of Dermatology. Her professional affiliations include the American Academy of Dermatology and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.   In addition to her dermatology practice, she is also affiliated with the New York University Elaine A. and Kenneth G. Langone Medical Center and the Lenox Hill Hospital.
