I never write reviews but I feel that Dr Farber deserves recognition. Dr Farber is an outstanding cosmetic dermatologist.She was able to give me a younger yet natural appearance with just filler and Botox. She is a very talented injector and has a wonderful bedside manner. The office staff and assistants were terrific too

This was the best trip to the doctors I have ever had (which is dumb to say, but true). There was a mix up with my appointment time and they fit me in at almost the same time regardless of the scheduling mix up. Dr. Farber was very easygoing and professional and I felt like I was in great hands.

Today I had my annual skin check with Dr Farber. Dr Farber’s knowledge and expertise is quite evident. During the course of the examination and treatment Dr Farber was very thorough, gentle and caring which enabled me to overcome my initial anxiety. I believe that Dr Farber is one of the best if not the best dermatologist I have ever seen in NYC. I highly recommend Dr Farber

Great doctor, nice office. Very clean and up to date. She helped me right away before my scheduled time. Looking forward to a follow up. Also good information on the walls, like what To expect for a skin test etc. Unlike some Practices have false degrees on the wall. Definitely recommend this office.

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 sent as 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 originally guessed. 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, I always 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
