I liked Dr Farley-Loftus a lot. She's easy to talk to, and she explained things clearly and honestly. I had to wait a bit, maybe ten minutes, but that was less than I expected given that the office was busy and there were several people in the waiting room.

Wonderful doctor. For myself, she took the time to listen to concerns and provided honest feedback. Suggested treatments that were conservative which was exactly what I was looking for. For my child (4yrs) she was able to complete his procedureas quickly and painlessly as possible. She was sensitive to my concerns and to him as well. She maintained composure and focus even though he was visibly upset. Definitely made a difficult experience as pleasant as she could for us both.

She was very professional and knowledgable. Recommended a light sunscreen to use daily even in winter, without making me feel guilty about not having done so. Recommendation to office: small mirror in exam rooms help in putting hair etc back together :)

Dr. Rachel Farley-Loftus, was thorough, professional, and warm. I will highly recommend her to others. I would have given the wait time 5 stars if one of the 6 people who were bustling about the waiting room had just said hello,we will be with you in a moment. It was like I was invisible until I said, "excuse me". With that being said, they were very nice once they began to work with me.

Dr. Farley-Loftus was my doctor before she joined this practice, and I followed her here. Since then I've even relocated out-of-state, but I still come back to see her when needed. Personable, knowledgeable, practical....wonderful. She's the only dermatologist I will treat with, she's that good.
