Review of Dr. Farivar

- in Seattle , WA |

Dr Farivar is an outstanding doctor! My husband has been treated by him since July and he has quickly become our hero. He is warm and kind and truly a magician when it comes to surgery! He greets us with a smile every time and is willing to do whatever we need to help us. He cares about us as a family and how we are coping overall. I can not recommend him highly enough. If you need someone to give you hope he is the one!!! Eimear&Matt Gardner

Review of Dr. Vallieres

- in Seattle, WA |

It's been several years since Dr. Vallieres did my somewhat unusual operation and I am doing well. The recovery was tougher than I expected, but also faster. Despite some things that made the surgery difficult, Vallieres was able to get everything out and the scar is much better than I expected: barely visible even though I usually scar easily. I appreciated that he listened to me and my priorities and expectations during the presurgical consult and was willing to take a chance on me.

Review of Dr. Farivar

- in Olympia, WA |

Dr. Farivar is probably one of the most compassionate and understanding doctors I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not only did he really listen to me as a patient but he stuck up for me against other doctors. This man is a literal lifesaver!

Review of Dr. Farivar

- in Seattle, WA |

I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Farivar for a second opinion before a surgery at another medical facility. A week prior to my appointment, his staff called and told me he needed to reschedule for 3 weeks later. When I asked for more information, they told me that he was delivering a talk on the day of my appointment and had just told his staff. Not only was this unprofessional, but put me in a terrible position related to my surgery. I decided to switch to another doctor. Unbelievable.
