Dr McFarren is great for his patients, he advocates for the best care for them. However, he can be a bit difficult with the staff sometimes. But I would reccommend him in a heart bit to anyone, because he does what is best for his patients.

He has to be the rudest and most pompous person, I have had the misfortune to come in contact with. Will never recommend any Hospital or donate any money to any organization he is affiliated with!

I do not understand a doctor who twice denies the pharmacy to refill a prescription with the comment his PCP should refill that. Putting me in a significant pain crisis for days. No call to warn me, the patient. My PCP has NEVER been the one to prescribe this pain medication for my KIDNEY...more
