Seen quickly. The dr checked out the mark and did full body scan and answered all my questions and I was in and out within a half hour. So much better than going to Weill Cornell in NYC where the wait is always long.
It was a very quick visit... too quick. Not even 5 min and I was out with any answer.
The visit was long overdue.
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.

I appreciated how friendly and personable Dr. Farley-Loftus was, and actually asked lots of questions pertaining to my visit, vs just trying to push me out the door as fast as possible.

The doctor was extremely pleasant and answered any questions I had. It was nice and quick which I appreciated. The wait was only ten minutes as well so I'd definitely recommend this.
This was my first visit to Dr. Farley. A friend had recommended her. The waiting room was clean an tidy. She was engaging right away asking about my history. The body scan was thorough. She took some skin samples for biopsy and explained that the office always called about results --good or bad. My only complaint was that I waited 35 minutes in the waiting room before i was brought to the treatment room. Hopefully that was an exception. I made an appointment for the next scan.
Very nice and sweet. She is also very thorough with everything and answers all questions. Everything is done quickly and efficiently.
Dr. was very professional and the office staff very helpful. My entire family goes to Dr. Farley-Loftus.

Dr. Farley-Loftus was very pleasant and friendly as always. She always makes me feel at ease and I trust her.
Quick professional and thorough. I was a new patient, I did the paper work home. When I arrived I was greeted right away, paid my co-pay and was asked to take a seat. Five minutes later I was in the examining room. I had a body scan and she found two growth that needed to be removed. It was painless. I was back in my car within 30 minutes of my arrival I would highly recommend her
She is an excellent clinician and a lovely person.
They email you forms in advance so you can prefill them at home and not waste time in the waiting room. Excellent staff and Dr. Farley-Loftus was great - informative, friendly, professional. Would recommend!
Can't complain everything was smooth.
I came in with a pretty minor skin issue. Dr. Farley quickly diagnosed the issue and answered any and all questions that I had. Quick and efficient!
Love Dr. Loftus excellent bedside manner and easy to talk to doesn't rush through the exam and answers all questions
Dr. Farley-Loftus is always so pleasant and sweet. She is very smart and I trust her knowledge. She is also gentle and for the quick minor things I had done at today's visit, I didn't feel a thing!
Dr. Farley is great! She is very friendly and easy to talk to. I feel at ease when she comes into the room.
Always a pleasure! She is extremely knowledgable re: skin diseases. Very reassuring as well. Plan is discussed and reinforced as necessary by her staff who are also very pleasant. Will return to see her even after relocating out of the area! Highly recommend Dr. Farley! I always use ZocDoc to make appointments. Super easy and convenient to use.
I am always very happy with Dr. Farley. She is always warm and professional, gives you the time that is needed and is a great diagnostician.

I would recommend Dr. Loftus in the future.
Rachel was super friendly, professional, and made me very comfortable throughout my entire appointment. The front desk staff was also very helpful and thoroughly explained my insurance benefits to me prior to my visit. No wait time at all.
Very professional and punctual.
Incredibly caring doctor!
She was right on time, first thing in the morning, answered all of my questions, even ones that didn't have to do with my exam that day. She was very pleasant. I am glad that I found her practice.
What a great appointment! The office is clean, the staff is friendly, and Dr. Farley is very helpful. I was so happy to be seen on time! Thank you!
Dr Farley-Loftus is very prompt and efficient which is a pleasant change from my previous dermatologist.
Informative, thorough and friendly.
Dr Farley-Loftus is the best dermatologist I have ever been to. She is the only one who has been able to really fix my acne! In addition, she is caring, attentive, and really listens to her patients. I've never felt rushed in my appointments, she always answers every question I have and is extremely knowledgeable, respectful, and warm. Both doctors in this practice are phenomenal. I've been to a lot of mediocre dermatologists around Millburn, places where I've waited over an hour for 5 minutes where a doctor barely looked at me. That's not the case here. If you're having skin troubles, do yourself a favor and come here. Also, this doctor is familiar with autoimmune progesterone dermatitis, which many doctors don't even know about!
I wish all my doctors visits are as pleasant as this one! Great experience
She was very kind and very informative.
Well organized office. Great bedside manner.
Very thorough. Good bedside manner. Staff was awesome also.
Very nice and through
Very nice and seemed to genially care about my problem
Dr. Rachel is very personable and listens to your concerns as a patient (quality a LOT of other doctors lack). I have dealt with facial acne for years and have struggled to get it under control despite several treatments including OTC and prescription medications. The doctor listened to my concerns and prescribed some topical medications that have helped control my acne significantly (have been in treatment for ~10 months). She was not pushy like other doctors have in the past; I told her I was not willing to go back to oral antibiotics as they had only worked temporarily in the past. Also, I was absolutely against using Accutane due to potential serious side effects. I amhappy that for once I found a doctor that is willing to explore treatment options as opposed to forcing you to use a very toxic drug like Accutane. Strongly recommend Dr. Rachel Farley-Loftus!
The entire visit was professional. The office was spotless, and the staff was friendly, and I had my paperwork ready as they had prepared me to bring all the information with me. Dr. Farley-Loftus was very kind, and explained everything to me. She answered all my questions. She complete a small procedure, and provided me with the necessary information so that I would know what to expect within the next few dayes. I
It was quick to get an appointment with Dr. Farley-Loftus. Her staff was very helpful in making sure I had the proper referral prior to my visit. Appointment was right on time with no wait and she had a very pleasant manner. (She even tolerated my 3 children who had to come into the examination room with me) I would recommend her to anyone looking for a dermatologist.
Dr. Farley was quick and thorough. She was very pleasant, especially when she assured me that what she was removing wouldn't hurt and she was right. I barely felt a pinch. I highly recommend her!
Nice and clean office setup. Had a 2pm appt. but arrived at 1:15. No one else in office waiting but me until I was called at 2:10pm so I have to assume I would have been seen in timely fashion had I stayed closer to my appt. time. Other than that, staff was friendly and I liked the doctor.
Dr. Rachel is very friendly. She listens to all the problems and recommends appropriate medicines.Overall I had a very good experience visiting her clinic.
The visit was nice and quick and she was so sweet and I will definitely be going back to see her again!

The office space is gorgeous and clean, the office staff were polite, professional and prompt, and the doctor was wonderful.

Wow is all I have to say! This is my very first time seeing this doctor and from the moment I walked in I felt very comfortable and welcomed. The staff were very professional and friendly. This is how every doctors office should be, but unfortunately it's more than often not the case. I will certainly be back for my next month's appointment, and recommend Dr. Farley to anyone who want a very genuine and informative dermatologist.
Super nice and thorough! I would absolutely recommend her!
Dr. Farley-Loftus is incredibly attentive and helpful. She took the time to discuss each of my concerns and come up with a solution. The appointment never felt rushed as it has with the many other dermatologists I have met with. So happy to have found her!

I had barely sat down in the waiting room when I was called back, which was awesome. I didn't even have time to get out my book! The staff was pleasant and kind, and the office was spotless. Dr. Farley-Loftus was friendly, nice, made me comfortable during the exam. I would highly recommend her.
I was told to take a cream for my rash the first appointment in. On the follow-up, the rash wasn't completely gone, I was advised to keep using the cream and come back again. On second follow-up, finally took a sample and the results were that I have bad eczema. It was annoying to have to go there 3 times and 3 co-pays just to conclude that I need to moisturize after showering. Aside from the 3 trips, she is great and the bedside manner is amazing. She is very informative and polite.
