Dr. Farrell is very patient and helpful. I Like his carful approach to treatment and he always take time to listen and respond to my questions and concerns.
in Frisco, TX |
Dr. Farrell was recommended to me by my sister and I am very happy she did. The staff was friendly and professional during each visit and worked with me. Dr. Farrell listened to what I had to say and the experiences I had with other Doctors and explained to me in detail what the issue was. Together we decided on the right option for me and I am looking forward to a pain-free back. Thanks, Dr. Farrell!
in Wylie tx |
Dr. Farrell gave me a spinal shot and it worked great. I have had 5 others and none of them worked by another pain doctor but the one Dr Farrell gave me worked. It is a blessing to be almost pain free. Thank you Dr Farrell. I have had nothing but a good experience with Dr Farrell
Prosper, TX |
Someone should have told he was mainly a pain Doctor, apparently sending you to PT is all he knows. I was in "constant" pain after therapy and told him so many many times, I finally saw a prominent Neurosurgeon in Plano. After a few test he could see disc degenerative damage and pinched nerves. As time passes walking remains more difficult and painful. I am now having surgery to replace a sliding disc and take pressure OFF those nerves. What a huge waste of time and money seeing this DR.
in Prosper, TX |
Mrs. C. J. Norton Prosper TX. Dr. Farrell was referred to me by my Neurosurgeon. When entering is office, his office staff was very pleasant and they answered all the questions I had. Dr.Farrell is an exceptional doctor and exhibits a very high level of professionalism. He is very easy to talk to and he genuinely cares about his patients. He takes time explain his diagnose, your options and then his recommendations. I highly recommend him... Dr. Farrell is the BEST!!!!!

Great experience with this physician's office. Dr. Farrell is very caring and empathetic with patients in pain. His staff is very polite and courteous. They return phone calls and get things done, like scheduling MRIs, very quickly (within 24 hrs for me). Highly recommend!!

I have been seeing Dr. Farrell for the last several years for treatment of the effects of osteoarthritis in my knee, hip, and back. Dr. Farrell and his staff are always caring and the office runs so efficiently. Their practice is the only one I know that consistently runs on schedule.

in Princeton tx |
Great, lower back was feeling better after a day or so after first visit
in Garland, TX |
I appreciate Dr. Farrell and am glad to recommend him. My only unpleasant experience involves my inability to arrive on time for my appointment due to an auto accident. I called ahead ,but, was still penalized $35 for being tardy by 10 minutes, which significantly impacted my fixed income budget. It required a month before I recovered, financially.
in Little Elm, TX |
Dr. Farrell provided excellent care and is a great listener. After reviewing the MRI and x-rays, my orthopedic doctor (who I truly admire and respect) had prescribed an epidural and sent me to Dr. Farrell, saying he was the best. Dr. Farrell found the exact area that was causing me pain and an epidural was not required. He gave me a treatment plan that was easy to follow. My pain level is now zero most of the time! If you have a combination back and sciatica problem that is sometimes so bad that
in Mckinney, TX |
Him and his staff have been amazing at getting me schedule as quickly as possible. I can normally get an appointment the same day I call if not within 72 hours! I was in a car accident a few years ago and injured my back very back. He has help me get that pain nearly gone with his expert advice and medical treatment. I would recommend him to anyone who wants a honest opinion and the best help they can get!
in Frisco, TX |

in Van Alstyne, TX |
I have been a patient of Dr. Farrell since December 2015. I have a history of lower back issues which require pain management. Dr. Farrell is attentive to my concerns and has helped me resolve the pain issues in a conservative manner as they arise. I am very happy to have found an excellent pain doctor in McKinney so no more trips into Dallas. I look forward to a long relationship with Dr. Farrell and would recommend his services to anyone I know that is looking for management of their pain.

Dr Farrell Is exactly how you hope every Dr you ever visit is. The man flat out knows his stuff !!!!!
Mckinney, TX |
Dr. Farrell took one look at my MRI and got me into the hospital the next day for an injection which took most of my pain away. Physical therapy helped with the rest of the arm pain and now I am basically pain-free. Dr. Farrell is friendly and explains any concerns I have. He does not rush through the exam time and I know that he will see me as quickly as he can if I should have more pain in the future. I definitely would recommend Dr. Farrell as a caring person/doctor to anyone with pain.

Great experience and Dr. Farrell takes time to listen to your concerns and questions.
in McKinney, TX |
I was referred by a friend working in radiology and my son in law following my involved accident. I have allergies that make choice of medications challenging. Dr Farrell does not push pills. He is a true doctor. He listens, he advocates, he refers when needed. He seeks the right fit for you. If l need him l can get an appointment. His competent staff reflects his friendly care. He is mindful of your time. l have never waited more than a few minutes in his lobby. He remembers you. A Good Dr!
Wylie, TX |
Dr. Farrell comes highly recommended by me. I had extreme back pains where my life was miserable. After going to other doctors who misdiagnosed the problem, Dr. Farrell determined it was stenosis, administered a shot, and now I have no more pain. I recommend him highly.
in McKinney |
Getting into Dr. Farrell's office has been much easier that others. They try their best to make time for any patient. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone I know that has an injury.
Farmersville, TX |
Dr. Farrell is genuinely a caring doctor. He explained everything to me completely and I left his office very satisfied that he answered all of my questions. He gave a solid treatment plan and explained exactly what to expect from the treatment. My back pain is gone. His staff is very friendly and do the best they can to get you taken care of in a timely manner.
in Mckinney , TX |
I had a very professional and helpful experience with Dr. Ferrell. He took the time to listen to me and prescribed x-ray before suggesting any medical treatment. I was able to function again and have a life back. Eventually, i will need surgery, but his diagnosis, medical treatment and referal has been extremely necessary and helpful.He's a quiet mannered doctor, but polite, knowledgeable, and professional. Overall, excellence doctor and staff.
in Mckinney |
Dr. Farrell and his office staff have always been very curtious and helpful. I was able to get an appointment the next day which is unheard of these days. He was very concerned about my pain level and scheduled me for epidural injections within days. Immediately after the injections my pain was gone. After 15 months it's time for another injection and I wouldn't go to anyone else. He is awesome!
Mckinney, TX |
I went to Dr. Farrell for 3 months. I have 2 herniated disc in my neck. He would only use muscle relaxers and nerve medicine to try to help. Never really seamed to be fully vested in my recovery. I changed pain management docs and now things are bearable as I wait for surgery. I would not recommend him for pain management
New York, NY |
Staff arrived late in the morning, mean, unprofessional, billing errors over charging and no empathy for patients that are in pain. They would rather charge and say that they will place patient as a no show even though you are on the phone with them, not willing to work with you, especially knowing that you are in pain and requesting to reschedule the appointment. The manager would argue with you, being disrespectful, happy to waste time reading out loud their policy and belittling you.
in McKinney TX |
It was the worst and most disappointing experience I've had with a doctor wouldn't listen to my wants and needs and lied to me about a certain pain med that has been taken off the market and afternoon three different meds I gave up and looking for a new doctor
in Dallas, TX |
Changed to this doc on 1/1/16 due to my ins plan.Tried the refs from prior pain doc & PCP.None took my ins. Found this one. It has been one bad issue after another. He does not believe in pain meds. Prior doc took over 2 years to find the correct dosages and I was finally able to function again. So, now I have been cut off from 1 & the other he wants to reduce. He did an injection in the wrong area of my body.Lied to me in person about reasons;not allowed to prescribe Not true, I looked it up
in mckinney, Texas |
Horrible unprofessional lazy staff, the Dr is just as lazy, he never seems to know what's going with his patients or remember. Never seems to receive documents from other referring doctors. Don't waste your time or money on this doctor.
