A no bologna type of doctor...I'd rather find out what I am allergic to than go to a dermo and get creams, lotions and steroids to mask the problem. Better to try to solve the problem than cover it up inother words. My problem has become chronic so I am not interested in the creams, etc. Those were good for one time rashes but not if they become chronic.

I've been suffering from an extremely stuffy nose for two years without having a clue what the cause was. Dr. Bernard would not stop investigating until he found the cause of my suffering. He totally went above and beyond to helpme. Him and his team were very good at working with my insurance. I was provided with the best information on how to avoid another allergic reaction. After leaving his office i was finally able to breathe out of my nose for the first time in two years. I cannot imagine a better doctor. Thanks Dr. Bernard!!

Dr. Feigenbaum gave me an honest assessment and showed that he did not want to do anything that was not necessary and showedthat he did not want to unnecessarily run up a large bill. He wanted to make sure that I was comfortable and made me feel that I was able to make choices regarding my care. This practice really cares about the customer experience.

Everything went great! I went in for my asthma and felt very informed and like we had a good plan of attack for managing it when I left. Everyone was very friendly and personable and their later office hours were reallyhelpful for me. The Doctor even followed up with an email after my visit with some more information and to reach out if I had any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. F.

I found Dr. Feigenbaum to be professional, thorough, and personable. He confirmed to me that the nasal spray I had been using was appropriate for me, and instructed me in the best technique to use it. I had been needing thatinstruction, and I believe the spray will now be more effective for me. He consulted with me about whether to do allergy testing or not, and let me make my own decision. I decided to participate in the allergy testing, and nothing showed up. I was glad I did it so that I know that I have no allergies to air-born allergens.

Most folks would say any visit to any doctor is not on their list of wants. Having said that I'd gladly go back just for the friendly banter, and great group of people that work here! I'm not gonna lie, thisvisit was FUN, no joke, it was a pleasant atmosphere and made me feel at easy and as comfortable as being at home just hanging out, whilst getting poked with multiple forms of allergens. Everything was explained and made understood to me, and there was no pressure to have a return visit or gimmicks.

I absolutely loved my experience with Dr. Feigenbaum. He and his staff were clean, organized, on-time, and friendly. He took his time with me to truely understand my prior history as well as throughly diagnose my condition. He took the timeto explain his procedures and his recommendations on treatment. He printed out materials to help me better understand possible causes of my symptoms and had me leaving the office with a clear and comfortable game plan for addressing my problem.

Very responsive to questions, was prompt, organized. All questions I had about the test conducted, the methodology and any problems the test had were answered straight out and further research topics pointed out to me. Promptness is promptness,the patient after me did not have to wait and everything was on time. Detailed notes were taken at every step of the process, sped up by the involved intake form I needed to fill out before.

Dr. Feigenbaum seemed pretty thorough, but he was training a couple of new assistants at the time so was a bit distracted. It is always hard to tell how good a doctor is after one visit, I will have to waitand see how his diagnosis works out over time. I will be back, of course.
