I was pleased with Dr, Feldman since my regular Wake Forest Health dermatologist has left the practice.


First time with Dr. Feldman - LOVED him! makes me want to go to the doctor's every week!


first time I've seen this care provider. He was very good at listening and giving me options


I recommended Dr. Feldman to my dentist several months ago, and she was very pleased with his professionalism and excellent way of dealing with a skin problem she was having.


Dr. Feldman is an excellent doctor who has helped me with my chronic disease since it first flared years ago. I am grateful to him for all that he has done and continues to do for me.


Spent much more time with resident than provider. resident was quite attentive and thorough but provider had little interaction.


*Dr. Feldman spent maybe 10 mins. with me. He was too busy and seemed rushed to get to the next patient. He left my care and decisions about how to proceed with my treatment to the resident. (WHO WAS GREAT!) I was not impressed with the expert.


The resident did a good job with my daughter and was very nice. This attending came in and introduced himself and spent less than 1 minute in the room and said yes you do have acne and the resident will take care of you. It was the least amount of time I have ever encountered a provider spending with the least amount of words exchanged. My 6 th grader said, "Well that was awkward" when he left the room. I know he is a good Physician because I have seen him as a patient myself but his people skills were very lacking in the particular appointment.


Very pleased.


With out *Dr. Feldman's help I don't know where I'd be today - He's a great doctor.


Dr Feldman was amazing with our son (and accompanying little sister). He made the visit fun! And I got the answers to my concern.


Everything very good.


I have always felt visits w/Dr Feldon have been very productive.


He is great


Very personable.


Dr. Feldman has been my doctor for many years. He has helped me, my family, and my friends and I am very grateful for his care.


The doctors were very caring and very knowledgeable. Dr.


Best doctor I have had at this facility thus far.


Dr. Feldman is the best doctor that you have a Baptist. Every doctor should take lessons from him on how to treat their patients.


He gave me his cell phone number in case I had any difficulties and even called me personally to check up on me! Great doctor!


MD advised me that I knew as much as he did about my rash. I felt that this rash was a drug reaction. WHen I asked about any medication changes or suggestions, he said maybe not take as much medicine. Also felt that I was not listened to and not valued as a patient. I will not be returning to this practice.


Dr Feldman is the absolute best! I'm a provider at the hospital and refer to derm quite often. When patients tell me who they've seen, they always give him rave reviews!


Great 1st time visit as this provider replaced one of your previous providers who moved elsewhere


The main examination was done by an intern not Dr. Feldman. Perhaps Dr. Feldman is trying to see too many patients.


Very good drs.


(Exceptionally 100% good.)


I always have a good visit with my provider.


They were all nice.


I give the female Resident/Intern who saw me good marks. However Dr. Feldman only spent 2 minutes with me so that I can not say the same for him.


Dr. Feldman is kind, patient, and knowledgeable. Because of him I am a healthy person now. I am very grateful to him for his time and expertise.


Dr Feldman and his staff were so kind. Smiles and laughs to start my day. This was my first visit to this practice. I felt comfortable. The resident that worked with him was also very kind.


Made off colored remarks to the fact that I don't drink, as this wasn't bad enough he had students with him. Was very disappointed in the lack of professionalism from the doctor.


The Doctor is outstanding and has great people skills.
