I think the reason Dr. Far works in a pain clinic is so she can INFLICT pain on other people. She could care less about my suffering, was in a rush and spent little time trying to do anything close to treating me and made snide comments when I asked for help. She took 2 days to get back to me when...more

Dr. Far is a very rude person that lacks compassion and the ability to explain simple procedures. She is far to busy to take time out of her schedule to answer questions pertaining to aftercare. She also makes snide, condescending comments.

Very rude and lacks compassion. Has helped with my pain 0.0%. Made a snide remark when I wanted more information on a procedure. The procedure resulted in adverse side effects which she did not explain. By FAR the worst doctor I have ever seen.
