Dr Farber and his staff offer exceptional service and provide amazing care. It was my first time there and I wasn’t aware that my insurance had switched over to an HMO and I needed a referral. The staff was kind enough to call my family doctor they got a referral for me. I was impressed by how knowledgeable Dr Farber was with his medical care and how much attention he paid to the end result both medically and cosmetically. He removed a big cyst on my face that left no noticeable scar.

I have been a patient of Dr Farber for years. Every time I see him I have had great care. First he treated my skin cancer which another doc told me was just an age spot. I originally went to Dr Farber for a second opinion. Dr Farber told me he thought we should remove the spot. One week later he called -my age spot was an early melanoma. I was scheduled for surgery that same day at Jefferson. Because of Dr Farber my kids are not orphans. He saved my life! He truly cares-rare find-caring&capable!

Dr Farber is a very good doc! He treated my family for many years. Every time I came in, I felt right at home. From the staff to the manager -everyone was helpful and I love the diversity and caring nature of everyone. I even like the blue wallpaper- usually I don't like office decor! Dr Farber treated me for melanoma. He saved my life by telling me to remove that bump on my chest. It was melanoma. I am alive and getting ready to celebrate my daughter graduation all because of Dr Farber.

Dr Farber is a good doctor. Skin exam was quick and thorough. Felt like he listened to all my concerns and took his time to educated me on skin cancer. I had a spot biopsied for possible skin cancer and the whole process less than 5 minutes. Good bedside manner. Highly recommend Dr Farber and his practice.

Dr Farber going to medicine for all the right reasons. He is the advice "joe". I am a 56 years old man who lost his job and of course divorce. I was very depressed. Dr treat me for hair lost and psoriasis. He make me feel great, didn't mind shaking my hand full of psoriasis break out and body cover with dry patch. Make long story short after 5 visits my psoriasis clear 90 %. After that he treat my hair loss. Within half a year my psoriasis clear up and my hair not falling out at much.

Dr Farber is truly a doctor for the people. I was very worried about a particular spot I noticed on my skin. Dr Farber took the time to answer my questions and alleviate my fears. He then treated me and completely resolved the situation. He was amazing but even more than that I noticed such a variety of different people in the office as patients and as staff. He treated all with respect. In all my dealings with different Doctors Dr Farber is by far the most capable and unbiased genuine Doc.

Dr. Farber is an excellent dermatologist and diagnostician. He has the bedside manner that I only remember receiving from doctors very long ago. I was not a number or a chart. He took his time with me and answered every question I asked. Even with a packed waiting room, I never felt rushed and left knowing I was in safe hands. The way he spoke showed me he truly cared and loves what he does. I highly recommend Dr. Farber to anyone who is looking for a dermatologist with intellect and heart

Dr Farber is a knowledgeable and caring doctor. He helped treat my eczema much better than the three other doctors I visited. Within three visits my eczema dramatically improved. The other doctors didn't take the time and didn't seem to care. Dr Farber truly helped us and even made sure we were able to get the medicines and explained how to properly use them. Thank you Dr Farber for your help. I know that I have the best dermatologist with you!! My family and I are grateful.

Dr Farber is a excellent doctor. He knows his stuff and is very knowlegable. Its ashamed that only unhappy and miserable patients often are the ones that writes reviews. Dr Farber and his staff are very professional and positive with me. I recommend him for my family and closest friends. They are satified as well.
