As a physician myself, I've seen many doctors some good and some bad, but Dr. Farber is a physician who deeply cares for the well being of his patients and goes out of his way too offer the best dermatologic care that I have seen. He sincerely is a caring and kind soul and possesses the knowledge to accurately diagnose and treat the multitude of dermatologic maladies. I would not hesitate to see him and I do every 6 month driving up from South Florida to see him

Dr. Farber is an amazing doctor. I Had an awesome experience and would recommend him to everyone looking to get any skin condition checked out. I had a rash on my hand that recurred every year and was unsure of what it was. I came to him for his expertise after reading great reviews on his service. Upon first meeting him I knew I came to the right place. He was both professional and very personable. He knew exactly what I had and what I needed. The receptionist was great to! Thank you Dr Farber

Dr. Farber is a wonderful doctor. He saved my life and gave me back my self esteem. I have really bad psoriasis and wouldn't go out. He cleared my skin after two months. I got my life back. Dr. Farber is the best.

If you aren't going to Dr. Farber for your skin needs, you might as well not go to any dermatologist at all :)

This guy is a scam artist. He oversells his laser equipment by promising unrealistic results. I paid over $3000 for laser treatment that had zero effect on my scarring. Very disappointed. He became very hostile when I pushed for a refund of my money. The office personnel are actually very pleasant but I didnt want that to falsely reflect that you should actually consider visiting this doctor.

Dr. Farber is the best! I have been going to him for about 20 years now for my psoriasis. He really does care for the patient and is always trying to get you the right medication. He is very up to date on all new drugs for all your skin worries. I would recommend him to my friends and family.

I have been a patient of Dr Farber for years and he is just a wonderful doctor. He takes his time to listen to your issue on whatever the reason may be and takes time to explain his diagnosis and the treatment he will be prescribing. He makes sure to answer all of his patients' questions and take the time to do so. He is a very personable doctor who shows care and dedication to each of his patients.

My issues are all cancer of the skin. Dr. Farber is the most caring doctor I have met in my life. Sadly I have a few. He cares, he listens, he is ready for me when he sees me. I have been in his practice over ten years as a patient and this past year, under his care. Be confident, he will take care of your skin issues and do so in a very professional and caring manner.
One of the nicest doctor I know. He takes time to make sure his patients get the care they need. Not many doctors show his patients his care but Dr Farber does. In case of emergencies just give him a call and he will do everything he can to help. I recommend him to all of you.

Dr. Farber really helped me. After four years of feeling embarrassed of my face because of my acne, he prescribed an amazing treatment and after only a week I noticed it clearing. It's been two weeks and my skin is looking great! He really listened to all of my concerns and was the first doctor who thought to do a biopsy to see if I have psoriasis, which I do. I'm thankful for him.
Dr. Farber is wonderful. I am not an easy patient.I came in with multiple issues. I was amazed that Dr. Farber took his time to treat me and explain all my diagnoses to me. After that visit I walked out much less stressed. Thank you Dr. Farber and May God Bless you.....

Recently, I have just turned sixty and I realized the mirror was no longer my friend. After much research and listening to word of mouth, I decided on Dr. Harold Farber in Narberth, PA. I was pleasantly surprised, his receptionist was radiant and very sweet. She assured me that the doctor would be right with me and he was. During my consultation, Dr. Farber explained some procedures and price lists, which were affordable. He was knowledgeable and patient.
Great doctor. Genuinely listened to my concerns. Accurately diagnosed my issues and made sure I received the proper medicine. Felt Dr Farber took the time I needed to help me get better.

Wonderful dermatologist and very comfortable environment. Dr.Farber listened to everything I had to say and didn't make me feel rushed. He answered all of my questions, and I had a lot! I had an abnormal lump and infection on my inner thigh and he drained it and sent it to be tested immediately. He explained everything very thoroughly to me. He cares about his patients. I have recommended him to all of my family, friends, and neighbors. Glad to find a dermatologist I can trust! :)
