Dr. Larsen was so patient and thorough. I had two different joint issues and he walked through examining both of them and explaining different options in ways I could easily understand. Really appreciated his time and attention to detail!

Review for Dr. Al-Shuqairat

Due to an accident, my herniated disk was impinging my sciatic nerve and causing pain for over a year. Dr Farley operated less than 3 months ago and I am 100%. He is an amazing, talented surgeon and was life changing for me.

Review for Dr. Farley

Highly recommed not using Dr. Falahati and his unprofessional high turn-over staff. I'm a 35+ year type 1 diabetic and have never worked with such an unprofessional staff. Find a different Endocrinologist you will be happy that you did.
