Michele is a very professional and refreshing doctor. I went in for an annual skin cancer screening and she took the time to look at all my concern areas given my family history. Office was clean and professional.

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!

I was seen right away and the nurse was very kind, but the doctor was extremely rushed. As a new patient I of course had a couple of questions and wanted to have a conversation about my concerns but it wasvery clear she wanted to be in and out as soon as possible even though there was only one patient in the waiting room after me. She left so quickly she forgot to put a bandaid on the area where I was treated and I had to ask her assistant for one.

I was seen right away and the assistant was great, these two things should be a staple at every doctor's office. This doctor is only interested when it comes to cosmetic issues, not dermatology. I looked on ZocDoc for a dermatologist.The reason for my low rating is that I was not given a thorough exam. Normally when you visit a dermatologist for the first time, you are given a full body exam of the skin. A doctor should look at your skin, you should also be asked about medications, allergies, etc. Although, I had already provided a small amount of information, the information that I presented should have been cause for an exam. I was given a verbal exam and yes Dr. Farber while she was there with some other perhaps resident, looked at a few of my moles with a "light". I was not asked if the moles itch, hurt, have changed shape (which some have). I had blisters on the back of my feet, due to a hiking trip last week and my skin is now healing. For that issue I was prescribed an ointment for the now healing skin and given a "coupon", discount card that could only be used at a popular pharmacy, I could not use my popular pharmacy. The pharmacist told me that the rx was expensive (in the 3 digits), I gave her my insurance info (it was not covered as it, the ointment, is for cosmetic purposes), I then gave her the coupon that I was given at Dr. Farber's office, The coupon reduced the rx significantly (well into the double digits on the low side), amazing! Anyway, I read the instructions and they said to apply 2x times a day. Dr, Farber said to apply once a day, I asked the pharmacist and showed him the area I was talking about on both my feet; he looked a very skeptically said, " you need to make sure that the open skin is completely healed before putting this onto your skin, in other words I need a scab to form. I was not told this by Dr. Farber. So for all of the issues I have described, I will not be back and will be looking for another dermatologist.

Love Michele. I've seen here twice now and both times she was super attentive. She prescribes the perfect dosage the first time around which prevents you from coming back month after month because the medication inst strong enough. Even thesmallest thing I inquired about she had an answer for (small burn mark, heat bumps on chest, micro white heads on my chin). She is the best!

All the ladies working at the 35th street office was amazingly helpful. If it wasn't for them, I would not have been able to see a doctor after Zocdoc mistakenly set my appointment at another location. They are all very friendly.

I did a few cosmetic procedures with Dr Farber including a laser she recommended called Photo Genesis. Dr Farber listened to my concerns and objectives and was able to help me achieve what I had hoped. I am thrilled with theoutcome of my procedures and was especially impressed by the high level of care I received. Dr Farber is truly caring, compassionate and is an absolute miracle worker for helping make you look your best! I cannot wait to go back for my next procedure with her.

I thought she seemed to rush through the visit. I didn't feel like she fully explained her rationale or thought process, which left me with some unanswered questions. I did not really see any improvement after the visit.
