What People Say About Dr. Chad Farley, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had some extreme back pain and Having an MRI it was decided that I needed surgery. Rock Creek Was very quick and responsive to get me in which I needed. I didn’t get to meet the Dr but his assistant which he was great. I had surgery on my L4-5 and I would say a successful surgery so far! I went for my checkup after a little more than 2 weeks feeling good but many questions for the surgeon. Met with Chad and although a very nice guy I don’t think he knew my name or what he did in surgery?? He came in with no files of me and he had no recollection of what he saw in there?I had questions and I got a few (canned answers) this was my health and backs are so crucial and I just wanted a reassurance that things we’re going to be good. I believe I am on the mend and love the work that was done on me but the bedside manner could really use some help to reassure patients what happened while in surgery. Thanks

Dr. Farley was great. He talked to me in detail about my MRI and made it so much easier to understand. He can be hard to get in to, but worth the wait. Nice guy, great staff.

After my experience with him I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. I do wonder if he even looked at my MRI or just at my insurance before telling me there was nothing wrong with me, that it was all in my head. I've had multiple MRI and consults over the past 2 decades and none have even come close to agreeing with this Dr. I'm done living with the constant debilating pain that has become a staple of my life. This guy is a joke and I'll steer everyone I can away from him. Office staff was good.

From my initial visit at Dr. Farley’s office to the hospital check in and check out to my two week postop visit everything was perfect and effortless! I walked out of the hospital after surgery in no pain whatsoever and I’m truly grateful for my mobility being given back to me. Dr. Farley is amazing and I would highly recommend him to anyone with these types of issues.

I've been very pleased with Dr. Farley's cautious and thorough approach to addressing my back problems. I have degenerative disc disease and a host of accompanying spinal and neurological problems. Dr. Farley has employed a number of imaging and other diagnostic tests to better understand my whole situation. After performing one surgery, he continues to work with me to understand and address my other clinical symptoms.

This is Eric Raun. I had back surgery recently and Dr. Farly was my surgeon. The Dr. was pleasant and friendly, and explained the procedure in an understandable way. His methods for aftercare allowed me to heal quickly and with as little discomfort as possible. While hospitalized I heard many positive accounts about Dr. Farly from nursing and other staff. I highly recommend this physician.

Dr. Farley and his office were absolutely amazing during my recent back issues and surgery. They were prompt in getting me in for the initial consultation and went above and beyond expectations in getting me in for surgery when the pain became more than I could bear. Dr. Farley did a ggreat job in answering my questions and concerns about the procedure and performed the surgery in a way to alleviate all of my pain. My recovery time was minimal. I highly recommend Dr. Chad Farley!

I had a great experience with Dr. Farley and his P.A. Jordan. They genuinely care about your health and want what is best for you. I've 3 herniated disc in my lumbar spine for 10+ years before going to Dr. Farley. I am 30 years old and they told me they did not want to fuse me but, it was the only option. 9 weeks post op I can say he is the only Dr. I will ever trust with my back. The pain is gone and i can live again. Thank You Doc and Jordan! you saved my life! I am forever in your dept!

I am a nurse that works in the surgical area of the hospital and am familiar with most of the neurosurgeons in Utah County. I chose Dr. Farley because of his reputation, care and concern of me. I was suffering from sciatic pain due to a fractured/slipped vertabrae at L5-S1 and it was becoming increasing difficult for me to sleep and walk at times. My surgery at Timpanogas Hospital went very well and today I have very little pain and am back to work. I highly recommend Dr. Chad Farley!

Once your surgery is all said and done & the medical bill are paid, you are just a page in the past. Its almost impossible to get a call back from the dr. I called with a fairly serious concern, and left a message with the receptionist to relay to dr farley, and no call back. This has happened on a few occasions, so I found a new doctor.
