Patient Comments (5)
in New York, NY |
I searched to find Dr. Goldfaden when she left Affiliated Dermatologists in Morristown/Somerville. I live in NYC and have been to 3 dermatologists there--all excellent--but nonetheless travel to NJ to see Dr. Goldfaden because I have confidence in her judgment. What some patients may mistake as rushing them out the door is actually an extremely professional and efficient dermatologist whose trained and experienced eye is worth far more than hand-holding. She discovered an early melanoma in me.

I felt like she was only willing to address 1-2 issues. Until I was wil get to pay out of pocket for a few skin tags to be removed. I'm pretty sure the removal of a skin tag shouldn't scar 3 times the size of the actual skin tag . I now have to huge blemish two shades darker than my skin tone. I've had pea size flat moles removed with with different doctors and Had zero scarring.
in Flemington, NJ |
I used to go to Dr. Goldfaden for years until she left her Somerville, N.J., office. When I called that office they wouldn't tell me where she went so I went to my Primary Care Physician and then to a local dermatologist and the rash on my face kept getting worse and no one could tell me why. Finally contacted Dr.Goldfaden and she immediately knew it was cortisone withdrawal. Not only did she prescribe a healing medicine but CALLED ME PERSONALLY 4 TIMES on the telephone to tweet the medicines

Felt her urge to finish with me starting from the 5th minutes she spent with me.

As a new patient, I was able to get an appointment with the doctor on the day I called to schedule it (nice). Barely a wait time to get into the exam room. Receptionist very professional and pleasant. Dr Goldfaden was very professional and very thorough - explaining everything she was doing. This was my initial visit with her and I'm more than satisfied with ht experience. Highly recommended.
