Funny how the negative reviews get deleted. I am still upset that I have to pay over $500 in lab fees for drug tests. When they said they needed a urine specimen, I was not told it was for drug tests. And, they certainly did not tell me that most insurance companies will not pay for "drug" test. In addition, he wanted to set up my steroid shots as a surgery which would have cost me $2600 out of pocket when I could get the shots for $200 a piece at Touchstone Imaging mostly covered.

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!

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

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.
