Syracuse, NY |
Dr. Farah is a wonderful dermatologist! She treated our daughter for eczema, and her condition has very much improved. She also has a great bedside manner - she shakes your hand, makes eye contact, and is a very caring person. I highly recommend her!!

It was so nice to see a doctor who looks you in the eye when they talk to you versus staring down and a clipboard and firing off questions. Dr. Farah was friendly but also efficient and confident in her diagnosis. She immediately knew what the problem was and impressively diagnosed other issues I have with my skin (that weren't at the time manifesting) and advised me on ways to manage them as well.
