I was treated with respect and caring PA. I have been a patient of Dr. Feldman for many years and I see her as a personal friend who takes care of my health as she would her own. She listens to what you have to say and is so encouraging when treating you. I would recommend her to my family and friends.

Words cannot express how amazing Dr. Elizabeth Feldman has been as a doctor and the incredible staff who support her at VCS. During one of the most uncertain and scary times in my life, she stepped in as a result of a high recommendation from my primary care physician. She has the perfect balance of being straightforward, shows empathy, and using her expertise to be an unwavering advocate for her patients. She’s very detailed and instills high levels of confidence as a result. Facing cancer with her in my corner and my advocate has removed a significant amount of stress and fear. It has allowed me to focus on fighting and getting better. I would be negligent if I did not take an additional moment to thank Janice my oncologist nurse for being my angel every step of the way. There are no words for me to express my thanks or appreciation for her kindness, organization skills, and being a shoulder to lean on during the tough days.

She was great! Very personable, kind, and answered all my questions. She also took her time and didn’t rush the appointment. She also was able to give us a proper diagnosis within minutes.

I saw doctor Feldman when I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Feldman was very kind and caring while explaining everything to me. She was able to calm me down because I was having anxiety. Her bedside manner, in my opinion, is outstanding. In addition, the staffs that I met with in her office were very pleasant to deal with. I did not feel rushed at all. Everyone took the time to answer my questions and concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Feldman!

All staff were very professional. I was impressed with Dr. Feldman since I was in uncharted territory with my diagnosis. Took plenty of time to explain in detail what would be happening. Clear explanations. Follow-up with me has also been excellent.
