About the Author
Dr. Feldman's research team has focused on demonstrating the quality of medical dermatology services provided by dermatologists; defining the role of dermatologists in performing dermatopathology; assessing cost effectiveness of dermatologic treatments; and, most importantly, understanding the effectiveness, safety and cost-effectiveness of outpatient dermatologic surgery. Dr. Feldman founded the Medical Quality Enhancement Corporation and its DrScore.com website. The site is designed to help patients give doctors feedback so that doctors can enhance the quality of care they offer.
His research studies into patients' adherence to their topical treatments helped transform how dermatologists understand and manipulate patients' use of topical medications over the course of chronic disease. Dr. Feldman was awarded an Astellas Award by the American Academy of Dermatology in 2008 for scientific research that has improved public health in the field of dermatology.
