I’ve been suffering from eczema for over 15 years and I’ve been suffering more for that duration trying to find a Doctor Who could actually address my concern without prescribing me prednisone. Dr. Farber is phenomenal and truly heaven sentas she was able to prescribe me exactly what I needed to control my flares. Very knowledgeable and excellent bedside manner!

Absolutely thrilled that I came across this doctor on ZocDoc. Can't speak highly enough about every person in the office I interacted with. Office was beautiful and very clean (they even have a charging station and mini water bottles!). Dr.Farber was extremely considerate with what I went in to see her for and provided me with a treatment plan I feel very comfortable with. If you're in need of a dermatologist, go see her!!

She was so amazing. She knew exactly how to treat my acne just by looking at it. I told her all the things I’ve tried in the past and all my breakout triggers and it all aligned with what she originallyguessed. Also, the office sent my prescription through to a special pharmacy that helped me get the lowest price possible on all the creams. They’re amazing there, I can’t say enough great things.

I am definitely going back. I like the fact her first reaction was not to prescribe medication (pills). She gave other options and walk you through the next steps if that didn’t work. You were given options along with her recommendations.She made you feel comfortable and so did her staff.

Great people, quick appointment. My only comment is that they ask for a deposit before your appointment, in case you're paying out of a deductible. A quick phone call to my insurance sorted it out, but the hefty deposit was a surprise.

Dr Farber is excellent. I have seen Dr Farber for general derm and skin check issues. I have always been extremely satisfied with her level of care, concern and expertise. So I decided to see her for a cosmetic reason, Ialways looked tired even after a full nights sleep. Dr Farber took the time to explain my options and advised me of her recommended treatment plan. She proceeded with filler and Botox and I left the office looking and feeling so much better. She has since performed a few minor laser treatments and I am completely trilled with my results. I highly recommend Dr Farber

This was my third visit to this office since my former dermatologist moved. I have been impressed by Dr. Farber and the PAs in her team. Dr. Farber is excellent: she does a thorough job, explains matters very well, and isfast in diagnosing and treating. This is a busy Midtown practice, nevertheless they can do a better job at answering phones and registering patients. Beware of the blond nurse wearing light blue scrubs. She is cantankerous and can be obnoxious. Best way to make an appointment is here on ZocDoc. Overall a very positive experience.

Dr. Farber, the front desk staff and her assistant were all very nice, professional and friendly. The facilities are clean and modern. Do note that this facility (35 st) mostly focuses on some cosmetic procedures. Make sure to call the officesto check if they can perform what you're looking for. Dr. Farber was really nice and her bedside manner was mindful. The only thing that made me doubtful was the lack of confident responses and made up prices on the spot for services/procedures. Maybe it was an off day but whenever I asked questions and to explain what would be the best way to treat/diagnose what I needed or what was the most cost efficient option she would bounce between one thing and the other and I was looking for direction from her, as a specialist. I do like that I did not feel pressured to do something right away. Overall, it was a good experience and would go again and try another location for a specific issue.

The dermatologist I've seen for the past 15 years doesn't accept my new insurance so I tried Dr,Farber and am glad I did. The office is very nice and clean. All of the people I had interactions with were super nice.I was there for my annual skin screening and felt totally comfortable with the Dr. and her assistant in the room while my whole body was checked. Very happy, I have a new dermatologist now. Thanks!
