She is a good doctor, this is a warning that she is not at the 60th street address anymore so if you are on medicare they will not pay your bill, since she has not updated her address with Social Security.
Dr. Feder is the real deal !! She is humble, sensitive, classy and sympathetic.She informs you ( GOOD OR BAD) , but is optimistic while doing so and offers solutions , never leaving you feeling confused. She takes time to explain result , she triple checks all bloodwork, is very compassionate and educated on all levels. She follows up immediately, return calls promptly and is as accessible as any good doctor should be. I feel so comfortable in her care.I am having my first baby, and it is a wonderful experience because of her!! I am an actress who works in a very demanding career and I deal with many different characters in my industry on a daily basis.I know rude people! She is an angel. I read people well and only trust a few. She is definitely one of those "old souls " who "gets it". She is truly in love with her work , but her human touch is what separates her from the rest. Anyone who has NOT had a great experience with her is probably because they are difficult people themselves and are impossible patients overall. Dr.Feder is someone I recommend without a doubt and trust implicitly.
Doctor Feder has delivered our two children and is preparing to deliver our third in January. She was tremendously supportive when it took a year and a half to conceive our first child. She very much made efforts to prevent a C section when labor would not progress, and allowed me as much time as was safe for my body to try to deliver the baby vaginally. When we went through a miscarriage, the level of care and support she provided was stellar. I am shocked by some of the experiences people report here. I appreciate her straightforwardness and have seen such a caring and nurturing side of her, when the time for it is needed. When I was not expecting and going to see her for an annual appointment, there was always a wait - and sometimes a long one. However, when expecting, the wait seems much less substantial and I think efforts are made to get future moms in and out quickly. The staff in her office are very sweet and friendly and have been helpful anytime I needed to call with questions or appointment needs. Dr. Feder is knowledgeable, practical, and thoughtful. We are so appreciative of being in her care through four pregnancies and soon to be three kids.
Dr.Feder is the best OBGYN i could've had! Because of her knowledge and expertise she saved my son's life. I was in the hospital for 2 1/2 months, and during that time she stopped by on regular basis just to say hi. She even brought me a book she thought i would enjoy. After an amazing experience with her, she became my partner's OBGYN and that was a wonderful experience as well. As for wait time - it took awhile too. But perhaps i was used to NYC doctors. I was never seen by one on scheduled time. I am grateful to Dr.Feder every time i look at my beautiful boys!
I've been a patient of Dr. Feder's for 4 years now. She delivered my son. I have had nothing but great experiences whenever I visit her office. She is caring, thoughtful and considerate. She and her office staff keep pictures of my son (and the children of other patients) around the office and always remember to ask about him. Her staff is professional and thorough, and she is an awesome OB/GYN. The wait time could be improved upon, but I could be simply an impatient NYer.
Doctor Feder impresssed me with her knowledge and compassionate side. She was very helpful during a challenging time in my life. I feel it is rare to find a doctor that is truly dedicated to the well-being of her patients at all times.
Responded to my pain dismissively and reacted by saying "I'm not going to deal with this patient" highly unprofessional. I think it is time for Dr samantha feder tochange professions. It is only a business to her. She lacks empathy and professionalism. So very sad she cannot see nor hear herself.
She is not a very nice person. Yes, she's extremely money hungery. Go to another doctor, don't waste your time and be uneccessarily abused.
I have had nothing but positive experiences with Dr. Feder and her staff. In fact - she has been the most responsive and caring doctor I've had..maybe ever. She takes the time to talk through concerns and issues - is never judgemental - and her staff goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable.
While the waits can be long, I have found Dr. Feder to be extremely competent and very pleasant. She is knowledgeable and calls about test results. She knew we were trying to get pregnant and seemed generally excited when we did.
Wow, I was shocked by the comments left here. I have had nothing but good experiences with Dr. Feder. Yes, she's busy but she's always been nothing but supportive and wonderful. Very responsive to my breast cancer diagnosis and gave me the best referrals. I wouldn't give her up for anything.
Ladies - I couldn't agree with you more! Dr Feder is extremely "brisk" as mentioned below, and never on-time. I've been seeing her for 3 years... (using the word 'seeing' lightly, as I haven't spent more than 15 cumulative minutes talking to her). While the waiting (an hour each visit) was certainly annoying, I accepted it for what it was. What I can't accept, however, is at my last appointment in August, she found a lump in my breast. I immediately made an appointment for an ultrasound and mammography, and Dr Feder also suggested I schedule an appointment with a breast surgeon. I had the test over two weeks ago, and have yet to hear back from Dr Feder to discuss the results. I've called her office multiple times over the last week, and still have not received a response. Dr Feder, if you're reading this, it's urgent that you return my call and discuss with me the results of my test. In the meantime, if anyone has a recommendation for another OBGYN, I'm looking.
I had the worst experience with the doctor, all I needed to know I learned from books and internet. Te birth lasted 40 hours at the end of which dr. Fader decided to go home because her shift ended; the minute she left hospital staff rushed me for C section. In my 29th week I fell from 14 steps, lost some amniotic fluids and started to have contraction - this fact was totally ignored by the doctor. Luckily my baby (now 2 months old) is fine but I would advise anyone from seeing Mrs. Fader
Tried for 1 week just to talk to someone that could look at her book to make an appointment. Staff is totally unreliable and there is no follow-up. Dr. Feder is always in a rush and running behind. I'm moving on and you should to. There are so many great gynos in NYC don't waste your time with this disorganized, inefficient practice.
Samantha Feder seems to be knowledgeable but she treats patients like numbers. She doesnt even bother taking my name off the chart anymore and instead calls me Sweetie or Honey. Aside from being an extraordinarily poor listener, its unconscionable that Ive had to wait at least an hour for every appointment and then she makes no effort to even acknowledge that Ive been put out -- as if I should be grateful that I got my five minutes.Feder is waaaay overscheduled so I assume shes got a new pool being built in her backyard. Its frightening to think this woman is a parent. If she treat patients this poorly, what kind of mother could she be?
This was potentially the worse OB/GYN experience I've EVER had. Aside from having no bedside manner and not listening to my questions, she never ...
I cannot stress enough how bad of a doctor she is. Wait times are excruciating, bedside manner is non-existent, exam is pretty brutal and nursing staff unprofessional. I gave this doctor a chance to redeem the initial poor impression and the subsequent dealings were worse. I can't imagine someone I would like LESS to deliver a baby for me.
I was brutalized by Dr. Feder during an unnecessary cervical tissue removal which I later found out reversed itself on its own.Not only did she perform an unneccessary operation to receive a large payment form my private insurance, she jeopardized my future fertility, did not have the proper size speculum (though the procedure had bene planned for months in advanced)which made the entire experience physically as well as emotionally painful, and was dismissive of me for being older than her usual patients.All together, she was consdescending and unethical, and made terrible trouble for me in my future plans to become pregnant. Additionally, she was greedy in performing needless surgery, which my present ob-gyn informs me is now thought unneccessary and reversible on its own.Fortunately I did not allow her to talk me into a full hysterctomy, which she applied exteme scare techniques to get me to agree to.
I had a very negative experience with Dr. Feder. She performed the most painful pap smear I've ever had and didn't give me anything to clean up with afterwards. She didn't appear to know much about menopause, gave me only a 3 month prescription for birth control and forgot to give me a mammogram prescription. All of this while acting angry and hostile. Not a good fit for me.
AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. My first appt waited over two hours. It took her TWO MONTHS to get back to me about my results after much pestering. When I got the results she did not explain them and so I walked away confused and upset. She is cold and does not spend proper time with patients. Then the billing department billed me twice, so I was left with a 800 dollar bill I had to explain was a duplicate. But billing never called me back. And then the billing sent the wrong insurance information to the lab, so had to explain my way out of another 300 dollar bill. A horrible doctor and office that has wasted hours of my time and caused mental harm.
I was a patient of Dr. Feder's for years before moving out of the Manhattan area. She delivered my first child and I had a great experience with her. Yes, the wait in the office was often long, but I think it is because she doesn't rush her patients and will always squeeze you in on any day if you have a worrisome situation. I loved her - she was AMAZING during my delivery. Definitely not the most touchy-feely doctor at all times, but very straight-foward, honest and excellent support during delivery. She was very clear about any concerns she had and also was excellent at allaying any pregnancy jitters / worries.
