I have an issue with my pancreas, especially important because I'm a type 2 diabetic. He's been diligent and supportive in diagnosis and in recommending an important lifestyle change that I wouldn't have known about otherwise.

Dr. Farhadi is very thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly. I recently saw him for a follow-up on a barium swallow test. He explained all the findings and how it related to my G.I. history. I would highly recommend him to any friends or family.

He's thorough, explains everything well, problem solves and takes the time to understand your issues. He ordered the stomach X-ray and reviewed it within half an hour. The staff is great and genuinely respect him and love working there. Amazingly, I can't wait to go back !
