8/22/2017

I think Dr. Feldman is far above what a patient expects in today's health care environment, which is full of obstacles. He's always friendly, understanding, incisive, and can explain a complex situation simply and to the point.

8/19/2017

Dr. Feldman is great. He was friendly, open and takes time for his patients. He even explained the test results himself and gave me his work number to call to speak directly with him if anything changes. I will definitely continue seeing Dr Feldman and also recommend him to any friends looking for a dermatologist.

8/14/2017

I don't think I would drive 2 hrs in the future. Talking points were said too fast and my grasp of the content was somewhat compromised.

8/9/2017

My time with Dr. Feldman was very brief. Most of my time spent was with a female Resident.

7/28/2017

Dr. Feldman is a top notch doctor, who treats his patients with respect and kindness.

7/27/2017

Dr. Feldman has earned my highest level of trust and appreciation since I first visited with Psoriasis. The positive effect his path of treatment has given me literally has allowed me a new outlook on life

7/27/2017

great doctor with a wonderful friendly attitude.

7/18/2017

Came in well after appointment time and only stayed in the room briefly

6/26/2017

*Dr. Feldman is the best.

6/15/2017

Could have benefited from more info on my diagnosis.

6/11/2017

No bad experience at all.

5/19/2017

sometimes I feel Feldman has a cavalier attitude & is not as thorough as needed when doing a skin cancer check, even though I have had 4 basal cell spots removed

5/10/2017

This is the first provider/practice that I have dealt with so far that has shown sincere interest in actually making the problem better and not just going through an arbitrary list of things to try.

5/9/2017

Dr. Feldman has been my doctor for many years. He takes excellent care of me, my family, and my friends. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking a kind and caring experienced doctor.

4/11/2017

Did not seem to care about my opinions and personal experience with my medical problem.

3/29/2017

Doctor basically dismissed the overall concern, only performed a biopsy at my request. Biopsy showed signs of cancer.

3/29/2017

*Dr. Feldman said we are going outside & put our heads together to help your problem and I have not seen him since that time 2-27-17.

3/28/2017

Dr. Feldman is a wonderful doctor. He is my go-to for any type of problem that I have experienced because he always explains and fixes any problems that I may experience.

3/22/2017

Dr Feldman always shows genuine concern for your well being.

3/14/2017

Dr Feldman was very friendly and put our whole family at ease. We left his office hopeful regarding our daughters future.

3/14/2017

knowledgeable physician

2/28/2017

Dr. Feldman has a lot of patients...thank goodness I'm one of them. With my childhood skin problems I know when a dermatologist knows what he's talking about. He's good.

2/23/2017

*Dr. Feldman is a very friendly, concerned doctor. Very good.

2/20/2017

he never touched my scalp. did not think he thought my condition was serious enough for him

2/10/2017

Best doctor any patient could ever hope to have. Excellent in every way. Kind, patient, and experienced. I always recommend him to family and friends and have gotten lots of positive feedback. The best thing about Dr. Feldman is that he truly does care about people and wants the best possible outcome for everyone.

2/8/2017

Dr. Feldman is very professional and courteous and allows you to contact him with additional concerns or questions. It's hard in this age to find medical professionals that are this dedicated to the patient.

1/23/2017

Seen for a dermatologic problem. Less than 10 seconds spent looking at my skin. I expressed concerns over continued symptoms and these were ignored. I asked if it was reasonable for me to expect to be symptom free,and this question was not addressed or answered.

1/17/2017

love my dr

1/6/2017

I thought that Dr Feldman could have been more thorough in his examination, e.g. he didn't even examine my scalp.

1/2/2017

Best and very good at understanding and explaining the issues

12/27/2016

Dr. Feldman provided EXCEPTIONAL care during and after my appointment. He was attentive, friendly, and responsive to my concerns. He went above the call of duty when he responded to my concerns about a prescription/prior approval after hours. He personally contacted me and helped me obtain urgent skin medication that insurance was initially unwilling to cover. I have never received such personalized, and compassionate care. He is a true asset to WFBH.

12/13/2016

I could understand everything the doctor said as I am a RN myself. Just felt that the doctor was in too big of a hurry to get his "quota" in to even look at my child.

11/26/2016

he was in and out so quickly that I wondered "why bother?"

11/22/2016

The appointment was extremely short and I felt that the doctor did not really care too much for my health concern. Also, my appointment was with the Doctor and not the interns who seemed to be completely running the show.

11/20/2016

Dr. Feldman gave me his personal cell phone # and insisted that I call him with updates on my condition. I was also to call him at any time if I had a problem of any kind. I have called him (with a prescription problem), and he was most helpful.

10/19/2016

Physician should spend more time w/patient, & not so hurried to leave room and move on to next patient!

10/16/2016

I greatly appreciate the care Dr. Feldman has given me, my family, and my friends. The positive impact he has made in our lives is something I wish every doctor could bestow on every patient.

10/2/2016

Excellent
