Professional and wanted to address my concerns while also being concerned about the impact of different medications. Was patient and suggested the best solution for me. Her PA was also very professional and caring. One downside was that the girl at the front desk was rude.

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 went in to see Dr. Farber a couple months ago. The office was clean and waiting time was pretty reasonable. I was called in within 5-10 minutes. But the doctor consultation itself was pretty unsatisfactory. I felt like she was going through the motions of the process, same as she would for every other patient without actually paying much attention to specific details about me. I asked about a couple of concerns and she had pretty vague responses to all my questions and just asked me to come back for a follow up visit if i wish to get tested. I was more confused than before i went in to see her since I expected answers or at least guidance in terms of what might be a problem and what isn't. Instead it seemed like it was all up to me to decide if i think of it as a problem or not. To add insult to injury, i was billed for a visit for up to 30 minutes even though the actual visit with the doctor in the office lasted less than 5 minutes. I contacted my insurance, who informed me that they could have charged me a different rate for a visit for 10 minutes or even 20 minutes, but they charged me for a 30 minute session for actually receiving under 5 minutes of consultation time. Needless to say, I wont be going back.

She was very courteous and asked a lot of questions that made me feel like she was really listening to me and my concerns. I felt reassured that she helped me identify a treatment solution that was most aligned with my lifestyle rather than pushing ideas on me. Very great and friendly doctor who did not hesitate to answer my own questions.

The office was clean/spacious and the front desk staff fantastic. When I was called, I was asked a bunch of questions by the doctor's assistant who at some point told me that my definition of 'alopecia' was wrong but that happens a lot especially when I'm getting my information from WebMD. Yes, those were her exact words. The doctor was nice but I felt like she just came in with her speech memorized and I was just another number. I could have said I have a unicorn coming out of my nose and her answer would have been it's normal because that's what she said to everything. All in all nothing truly horrible to say but I wouldn't go back just for the fact that I didn't feel content when I left.
