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

9/7/2016

Dr. Feldman is an exemplary doctor.

9/1/2016

Very Good!

8/27/2016

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.

8/25/2016

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.

8/24/2016

Great care about the patients

8/16/2016

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.

8/4/2016

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

8/2/2016

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.

7/27/2016

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.

7/22/2016

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.

7/20/2016

gave me his phone number if I had any problems!

7/20/2016

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

7/18/2016

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

7/13/2016

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.

6/28/2016

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

6/21/2016

very pleased Dr Feldman is the best!

6/17/2016

He's always in a hurry to leave.

6/13/2016

Excellent

6/12/2016

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

5/29/2016

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

5/25/2016

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

5/16/2016

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

5/11/2016

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.

5/3/2016

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.

4/30/2016

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

4/27/2016

*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.

4/25/2016

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.

4/19/2016

Very pleased.

4/14/2016

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

2/29/2016

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

2/25/2016

Everything very good.

2/10/2016

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

2/8/2016

He is great

2/2/2016

Very personable.

1/23/2016

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.

1/12/2016

The doctors were very caring and very knowledgeable. Dr.

1/6/2016

Best doctor I have had at this facility thus far.

1/4/2016

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

12/17/2015

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!
