I saw Dr. Farrell for my knee pain and I couldn't be happier. He took the time to explain some different options and what would work best with my current lifestyle. Hands down he is the best.

Dr Dan Farrell is my idea of what a doctor should be. Aside from being the best, medically, he is friendly, empathetic, caring and very easy to talk with.
