Patient Comments

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.


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


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.


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.


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


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.




Dr. Feldman is an exemplary doctor.


Very Good!


He was too concerned with correcting me, i. e., I referred to my arm he corrected me advising it was my forearm; I referred to my leg he replied ask for that at Kentucky Fried Chicken and you will get a thigh.


My PCP recommended a thorough examination of my skin to insure that it was healthy. I have rashes on my elbows, ears, scalp and had a area of concern. Was expecting him to examine my entire body, but he asked about the area I had mentioned to my PCP only. Without looking at my body except two small spots on chest and thigh, he pronounced that my skin was fine. Felt rushed.


Great care about the patients


This was my initial visit with Dr. Feldman. He came into the examination room with an entourage of medical students, shook my hand, and proceeded to discuss academic histories with my husband. He did say I had "beautiful toes," but when I tried to ask him what I should do about my fungus he deflected my question by remarking it was a good thing I had come to see a dermatologist and turning his attention back to my husband. If it had not been for the medical intern, the visit would have been a total waste of time. The intern was very helpful. Dr. Feldman was not.


This was my first visit with *Dr. Feldman and I was very pleased with the appointment.


Dr. Feldman brought students reviewed things and he left - students did exam and skin biopsies. Also Dr. Feldman prescribed meds for scalp psoriasis but I didn't clearly understand why I was prescribed antibiotic for bacterial infection and side effects. I like having the students b/c I like the learning experience for them.


Dr. Feldman seemed extremely dismissive and arrogant. my son has been struggling with painful eczema for a year and we came to see Dr. Feldman after our dermotologist and pediatrician at home didn't know what else to try to control his eczema. our dermotologist at home had faxed 28 pages of his history, and Dr. Feldman seemed unaware of his history despite have students and assistants helping him. I was hoping to get a different medicine plan for my son and possibly recommendations for other OTC products that may help. Dr. Feldman simply said "He looks fine. you can try doing his medicines differently if you want." when I asked about sunscreen, he handed me a pamphlet about sun shirts/hats and suggested I (not the patient) get a specific color because "it would really make my eyes pop". This was totally inappropriate. I left feeling that our visit with Dr. Feldman was a complete waste of time and money.


The doctor seemed rushed and had a group of med students with him. He confirmed the assistant's diagnosis and told me what he would prescribe. He gave me his personal cell phone number to call him & advise how med was working.


gave me his phone number if I had any problems!


I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Feldman to others.


Dr. Feldman is a great Dr. I highly recommend him.


Dr. Feldman takes very good care of me, my family, and my friends. I am very grateful to him for his constant care, patience, and kindness and, of course, his knowledge and expertise.


Dr. Feldman's assistant did most of the explaining and took great care that I understood what she meant.


very pleased Dr Feldman is the best!


He's always in a hurry to leave.




he was great ... I want him as my Doctor as well


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.
