Dr. Farber and her staff are excellent. Dr. Farber spent a lot of time with me, and she was very thoughtful in her answers. Her PA and nurse were outstanding - hands down the best dermatology office visit I have had.

Their office has a policy that requires the patient to pay the deductible upfront which then may be reduced by a payment from the insurance company but this was not clear prior to my first visit. The doctor was great butI would probably not go back for this reason (lack of transparency).

She seemed very out of it like she had a cold/allergies and I honestly felt kind of bad for her. She couldn’t remember what we talked about like five minutes prior. She also prescribed me a ton of expensive medication immediatelywhich I had to push back on. The one thing I will say is, again, I think she wasn’t feeling well so that could have been why she seemed so out of it. Also, I was a bit late to my appointment so she could have been rushing on that account, which I understand.

I had three visits at this office and my finger infection was never resolved. Not only that, when I had a bad reaction to a medication that was ordered by Dr. Farber, the office told me I should go elsewhere tohave the bad reaction taken care of. I think this dermatology practice is mostly for people who want cosmetic fillers, not for people with serious dermatology issues.

She seemed really knowledgeable and I was happy with my treatment. The only thing that made me feel skeptical is that she tried pushing me to only address one of my concerns and to schedule another appointment for the other, andit seemed like it was a way to get more money out of me. I told her I wanted everything looked at in one visit and it was fine after that - I just thought it was weird.

She speaks very fast. Makes it feel like she is rushing you and as if she just wants you out. The creams she prescribed are effective tho. That’s the only reason I might still go back

It was good, quick and easy. Turns out I had nothing to worry about after all. She taught me what to look for in seeing if my moles are abnormal or have weird sporadic growth. That's helpful for me to keep an eye out in the future.
