I was extremely impressed with Dr Farber. I came to see her for a cosmetic related consultation as I was interested in various injectables. Dr. Farber could not have been more patient or thorough. She gave me time to ask all of my questions and she made me feel relaxed and comfortable. Better yet, I absolutely love the way I look. She is pure magic!

There was an issue with Zocdoc and its communication of my appointment with their office. It did take 50 minutes before I was able to be seen. The receptionists were extremely unfriendly and insensitive to how they handled personal information, basically shouting questions at me that required me to raise my voice to reply. With all of that said however, Dr. Farber and the woman who was her assistant were extremely apologetic and were amazing listeners who were able to discuss my issue and able to take care of it the very same visit. I highly recommend her, just be patient until you get to see her- and do not let the initial curtness of the receptionist area deter you.

I saw her twice, both times there was almost no waiting, the first time there was the initial paperwork that you have with every doctors office, that always takes a few minutes, but that is standard. She was very straight forward and pleasant. She asked my opinion on treatment options, and didn't force an answer as some doctors do. After a treatment call personally called me to see how I was doing, I thought that was really nice that she followed up herself.

It was a great appointment. Dr. Farber was very friendly and made sure I understood everything she was doing. I was nervous to have the full body skin check but she explained everything and made me comfortable. She was very clear with the instructions of the after care of the medication she perscribed. I was worried about being in such a big office with so many doctors but Dr. Farber was very personable.

I've often put off my dermatology appointments, because—after some terrible experiences with other dermatologists—I've been embarrassed to have anyone assess my skin up close. Dr. Michele Farber, however, was wonderful; while she spoke quickly at times and was very matter-of-fact, she put me completely at ease with her calm and confident demeanor. She and her assistants/interns took my budget and coverage into account when recommending medications (no weird, sales-y tactics, here!), and Dr. Farber patiently answered all of my questions without making me feel rushed. I'd definitely recommend her!

I went for two seperate skin conditions. My acne/scar and a cyst. She prescibed a cream for my acne...and I have waited to write this review to post the result of the cream. I have not been so acne free since teenage years! I have been really excited and thrilled about it. Although I have only used it for little over two weeks, but it is magic. Now, it is just the slight scars. I am so happy with my face now. The cyst...I still need to make appt. to have it removed, but so far, I have faith in Dr. Farber.

Dr. Michele Farber and PA did everything to accommodate my treatment today instead of postponing it for another visit. Doctor and assistant were very friendly and professional. I had a great experience. I just think that the front desk staff could have a smile on their face especially when greeting new customers in a friendly manner....

I was sent to Dr. Farber following a very emotional/ upsetting appt. at a very cold/ unprofessional OBGYN who gave me no information whatsoever regarding my skin condition beyond blatantly shaming me for being sexually active (with my boyfriend of 2 years, mind you)-- long story short I was in a very fragile and scared state and feeling very wary of doctors in general when I came to Dr. Farber and she was sure to walk me through everything with utter calm and professionalism, listened to all of my many concerns, and helped me get back on track in feeling confident enough to tackle a sensitive health issue.
