Comments are taken from the Care Provider section of the Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Comments are posted exactly as they are written. Comments are added weekly. To protect patient privacy and confidentiality, patient names are not included.


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.


I always have a good visit with my provider.


(Exceptionally 100% good.)


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.


Good experience.


*Dr. Feldman is an excellent dermatologist, has been my doctor about 20 yrs.


Dr. and staff were all great.


Wonderful provider. Ninja dermatologist.


Dr. Feldman was personable and thorough. I have complete confidence in him and feel very comfortable in his care.


Amazing doctor! I was there for the appointment for myself and brought my 3 year old daughter! He was amazing! He showed her all kinds of different magic tricks with his tongue depressor! She loved him, he even asked if I had any concerns with her and I briefly showed him a rash and he was more than happy to look at it! Very very impressed with his bedside manner!!


Dr Feldman is the best!


I have recommended him to others


Explained what they were doing made me feel comfortable about my problem.
