Dr. Farber is superb - she's kind and personal from the very moment she meets you, addresses your child by their name and shows a genuine care for him/her, and really gives you a sense that she's invested in the healthof your child. With Dr. Farber, you do feel as if you are cared for, more so than just as another patient/appointment.

Dr. Farber has been our family doctor for more than 4 years and always reliable and steady. I just had my high school daughter's physical check-up and immunization shot for upcoming school year. She updates and reports my children's medical record accordingly to NYC DOE. Highly recommended.

Our visit was great. I highly recommend Dr Rebecca Farder. She is great with kids. My son is 10 yrs old and is usually nervous and shy with doctors. Dr Rebecca Farder made my son feel comfortable. My son got ashot and didn't even blink. Five star for you and your office. Thanks for making our visit quick and painless.

I met with the doctor for a prenatal consult so I can't speak to her interaction with babies/children. Otherwise, doctor Farber and the office staff were prompt, professional, personable. Doctor Farber was very straightforward regardingher philosophy and informative about what to expect at birth and the days/months after. I went in thinking the prenatal consult was unnecessary and a bit precious - a doctor is a doctor, especially if she is already well-recommended. However, I'm very glad I went. Doctor Farber listened attentively and brought my attention to some important points concerning my medical condition and why a couple of precautions may be necessary for the baby. I'm excited (and relieved) to find such a promising guide.
