Dr Farber’s bedside manner is so professional and thorough. She asked all the right questions and in the end I felt confident that she made all the right decisions for my treatment and after care. She’s young and very pretty but you have no doubt of her expertise from the moment she begins assessing the situation. I would highly recommend her services to everyone I know.

It's so hard to find a great doctor in New York and I'm so happy I found Dr Farber! She and her staff were attentive, kind, personable, and most importantly, professional and competent. I'm almost glad my other Derm dropped my insurance so I could find Dr. Farber. She's fantastic!

I have been seeing Dr. Farber for about a year now, mainly for medical appointments. I had my first cosmetic procedure done with her and she executed it with as much precision as with the medical procedures. Highly recommend Dr. Farber for all your dermatological and cosmetic needs!

Office was friendly and comfortable and the staff was great, however I felt that it wasn't a great place financially if your on a budget and needed something remove asap. Out-of-pocket payment must be paid up front and there was no wiggle room for negotiations. Overall the experince was nice & comfortable.

Dr. Farber herself was nice and professional, but the office was absolutely awful. The woman at the check-in desk was incredibly rude. After more than 30 minutes had passed after my appointment time, and I was still in the waiting room, I went up to the desk to ask if they knew how far behind things were running. I was told they would have to look into it, but when I heard the question asked of someone in the back, I heard a five-minute tirade against patients. "Don't they know we're going as fast as we can? Why would someone ask that? What's wrong with people?"-type comments yelled in a small office. Absolutely unprofessional. Dr. Farber's care was not worth putting up with people like that for over an hour before I was seen.

The visit was quick and went well.. until I received my bill. I was not given a heads up that I would be charged an insane fee for what the Dr. offered to do (freeze a benign spot.) She made it seem like it was included within the service. Any other doctor i've ever been to would have at least given a heads up that it would be considered "surgery."

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.
