  • 6/18/2018

    I trust his judgement if he thought it was something he could diagnose quickly, but still thought he was in and out a little quick

  • 6/11/2018

    I had a very good experience at my appointment.

  • 5/29/2018

    Dr. Feldman is always great! Friendly, professional, thorough. The Dr. who saw me prior to Dr. Feldman coming into the room was FANTASTIC! It was her first day on the job and I was her second patient. I wish I could remember her name but she was the ONLY Dr. I have seen who immediately picked up on the fact that I have some hair loss on my left shin and she said that is very often caused by a arterial problem. A problem that I have been seeing many Dr.s at Wake Forest for over the past 6 months!!!

  • 5/29/2018

    Dr. Feldman did magic tricks in the room for my son. Very cool!

  • 5/23/2018

    Dr. Feldman is a very nice man and an excellent doctor whose goal, I believe, is to give his patients the best care possible, while passing along his knowledge and wisdom to the next generation of great doctors. I appreciate what Dr. Feldman has done for me, my family, and my friends and for the future patients of the lucky doctors he is teaching/has taught.

  • 4/25/2018

    I trust Dr Feldman, he's very knowledgeable

  • 3/27/2018

    Excellent communicator. Very knowledgeable very friendly.

  • 3/25/2018

    I was referred to *Dr. Feldman from Adv. Dermatology in Asheville, NC - after 2 months and several biopsies unable to treat my "rare" skin disease. They referred me to the BEST in their judgment & I agree!

  • 3/21/2018

    Super easy to talk to; open to talking about issues in a more in-depth, scientific way; went out of his way to find a scientific paper I was interested in and email me a link.

  • 3/6/2018

    I was very happy with my visit in all areas.

  • 2/28/2018

    Dr. Feldman is a spectacular doctor. If I lived closer to Winston Salem I would have him as my regular dermatologist. I had a specific need to speak to him about biologicals and immunosuppressants.

  • 2/19/2018

    Again, Dr. Feldman is great

  • 2/15/2018

    Dr. Feldman made a huge positive difference in my life. I am very grateful for his care.

  • 1/10/2018

    I really enjoyed my visit with this provider on my last appointment

  • 11/27/2017

    I was there for a yearly exam and did not require any type of treatment. There was no problem on getting a prescription for the face cream I use. I was very pleased with the visit to Dr Feldman's office and with him.

  • 11/13/2017

    I contacted Dr. Feldman via MyWakeHealth with some concerns and here was very prompt and helpful.

  • 11/10/2017

    Dr. Feldman is the perfect doctor. He is kind, caring, and determined, he listens and explains things well, he is, of course, a brilliant doctor, and I love his sense of humor. He spends a lot of time with me, so I can learn as much as I can about my extremely rare disease and together we can decide the best possible option. To anyone who thinks he doesn't care because he doesn't spend much time with you, I say be glad that he can look at you and know immediately what you have and what action needs to be taken. You might just be luckier than you think.

  • 10/30/2017

    he was great

  • 10/24/2017

    Dr. Feldman has a very big ego. He really wants the residents that are under him to know how smart he is. He really needs to work on his beside manner.

  • 10/18/2017

    Even though he was not the provider that I normally see, (actually, he agreed to see me because of the distance that I drive and my provider had some medical issues), he was excellent. He displayed a sincere interest in me as an individual and my medical history. He was an attentive listener and answered all of my questions in terms that I could understand. He even took enough time to refuse a suggestion made by the resident doctor for a possible drug (this was not done in my presence. The resident doctor told me), because of possible side effects. I was very impressed and appreciative that Dr. Feldman took that much time to consider me as a 73 year-old individual.

  • 10/5/2017

    very professional very impressed

  • 9/28/2017

    Excellent! Friendly, Helpful, Cared! And was fun to chat with!

  • 9/26/2017

    he had a very friendly manor

  • 9/26/2017

    wonderful physician. I have already recommended Dr Feldman to several acquaintances.

  • 9/25/2017


  • 9/22/2017

    All drs. and other, all were interested in what I had to say. Very caring and understanding.

  • 9/18/2017

    Though I think Dr. Feldman is quite competent, I do feel he needs to be more mindful of how he treats patients. I am also an employee here so I know how importance it is to treat patients with respect and compassion.
