Went to see Dr. Farber for arthritis. Now pain free because of him. Woo hoo! Very patient and smart doctor.
in Las Vegas, NV |
Excellent, little waiting, he took his time with me. He is the third Dr. I've seen for my arthritis in the right shoulder but the only one which offered to give me a cortisone shot right then and it was the best suggestion given to me! I almost immediately felt great and could not have been able to to therapy. At my follow up a month later he asked me what percentage of pain improvement and l made him smile when I said 100% !

Dr Farber was great, i had a rotator cuff problem and he explained everything, he ended up doing my surgery. very competent.
in Chandler, AZ |
No introduction, seemed inconvenienced by me being there. Very little bedside manner and was not likeable at all. Didn't reassure me with anything and was just overall unpleasant. I had another follow-up appointment but after thinking about it, there really is no reason to go back to Dr. Farber. He really needs to work on his ability to interact with people as that's a main aspect of being a Dr., dealing with your patients in a friendly and reassuring way. He does not.
in Maricopa, AZ |
I would not recommend Dr. Farber to anyone. He was very rude to me and acted as if I was inconveniencing him. He did not even introduce himself.He would ask very short condescending questions. I am a disabled veteran and I have never been so disrespected. It was like he wanted nothing to do with me and I was just taking up his valuable time. At the end of my visit he just walked out of the room while I was collecting my things without even a handshake or a thank you.
