Dr. Feldman is pleasant and professional. I was having a melanoma removed, and she put me completely at ease. This is the second melanoma she has removed for me; the first one was a deeper one in January, and was stitched together very neatly! No problems at all with that scar.

Dr. Feldman was great! She explained everything she was doing in the several procedures she did - removing cysts the size of a large marble and a basal cell carcinoma. She was caring, friendly and professional. The nurses helping her were very good too. B West Des Moines

Though it is difficult to get into any Derm. doctor in Des Moines, they had a cancellation and I was able to be seen. I'd rather see a Doctor vs PA. She was very pleasant and took time to listen, and had compassion. This is appreciated.

I have been a patient of Dr Feldman's for right at twenty years and have found her to be very professional, knowledgeable, and relates well with her patients. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so.

Dr. Ava Felman is awesome. She is very thorough. She has found 3 different skin cancers on me and has never removed anything that wasn't cancer. The young lady at the appointment desk found me a cancellation and got me right in which I am so thankful for because it was another skin cancer. Thank you, thank you for your great service!

Dr. Feldman is top notch. Always willing to listen to the patient. And she treats my problems like they were her own. Her two nurses, Debi and Mary Lee are awesome as well. You put the three of them together and you have the best there is!
