This content was provided by Dr. Fardon The nature of what doctors are taught and what they learn and the ability to take that and make people's lives better was very attractive to me. The best choice I ever made was to go to medical school, and I've never regretted that. What confirms my feeling that I made the right decision in going into orthopedics, and particularly in spine, is the gratitude that I feel from my patients who I've helped to understand their disorders. And to find solutions for them. And that I'm practicing in a place where I'm surrounded by people who provide the very best care.

This is definitely not a Dr. for younger people. He's extremely judgmental to tattoos or a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy. Did not even shake my hand when I introduced myself. The only question he asked me the entire visit was who sent me to him! Did not look me in the eye once the entire visit, and totally blew me off after waiting 2 months for him to "review" my records, we sent countless medical records, X-rays and MRI's for him to review before hand. None of which he looked at all. Horrible

Dr. Fardon is a wonderful physician he takes time listening to his patients concerns and whatever questions they have he makes sure the patient understand each diagnosis he may find after he finishes his examination.

There needs to be more doctors like him, who take their time to explain things. He is very knowledgeable and his staff is always ready to help.
