We saw Dr Farnen for a consult about my daughters flat feet and leg pain. He directed all the conversation to her (she's 9) and made her feel special and respected. His evaluation and conservative recommendations regarding inserts and shoes are already helping her feel more comfortable and we can highly recommend him for pediatric needs.

Dr Farnen is a miracle worker. I came in to see Farnen because I had an ingrown toenail procedure done improperly prior to seeing him. As soon as I stepped into the office I felt welcomed. The entire staff was excellent. Each of the people that I interacted with were so unbelievably kind and attentive. I immediately felt taken care of, even after my fear from the prior procedure. You can expect to be completely cared for if you decide to see Dr Farnen. The man really knows his stuff. The procedure was quick and painless compared to the one I had two weeks prior. The other piece of the messy puzzle was that I needed to go to Honduras on a medical mission trip just two and a half weeks later. I was able to go because of Doctor Farnen and his staff and I could not be more thankful for all of their help. If you enjoy upbeat and positive atmospheres, you should also highly consider coming here. So fun to be around. I want to go back even though I no longer have any issues!

Dr. Farnen treated me for plantar fasciitis and I am now able to walk and free of pain. I am extremely satisfied with my treatment and highly recommend him. He also corrected my ingrown toe-nails. He communicated what was happening and I was always aware of each each step of the way.

Dr Farnen was beyond kind to my son. He noticed some emotional changes that had happened since the last time we had visited his office. He took the time to talk to my son, give him advice, and helped to reschedule for another visit for him to have the work done that was needed. He is a kind man, and a good doctor.

Had an ingrown toenail & initially went to another podiatrist in Columbia to have it removed, but after following healing instructions for 8 weeks it became apparent that the original procedure was not done correctly & I was told by that doctor I would lose my nail on my big toe & it would not grow back. I did not like this outcome, so I went to see Dr. Farnen for a 2nd opinion. Not only did he save my big toe nail, after a couple procedures it even looks great! He also has a great attitude.

Always professional, friendly, and can find the problem! Great follow up to my ingrown toenail and the one who discovered a problem last spring with some after effects from bunion surgery.

New patient to Dr. Farnen and very glad I found him. I'm a diabetic so foot care is critical to me and I can be very picky about who I see. Let me assure you no worries here at all. I had a small blister on my toe and was concerned it would turn worse. Dr. Farnen provided great care, never rushed my thousand questions and made certain I was clear on next steps before I left the office. Could not ask for anything better. The office staff is also amazing. Raven is incredble to work with.

Dr Farnen is awesome!!! I came in with a broken toe and a range of other foot issues. He explained the process for the toe to heal and prescribed a healing boot. Once the healing was completed, he carefully examined my feet to determine a course of action to help with fungal infections and hammertoes. He always is very friendly, and takes the time to listen. But more importantly, my feet have improved under his care. Dr Farnen is my foot care doctor and I would highly recommend him

Dr. Farnen did two ingrown toenail removals on my foot, and I have to say he could not have done a better job! Virtually no pain and I have had no trouble out of an ingrown nail since.

I am a nine year old girl and had an ingrown toenail that would cause an infection. I went to Dr. Farnen and his assistant, Rebecca, put me at ease. He was very nice and I am glad he was the one that did my surgery. He will be my foot Doctor for my family forever. I was scared at first but he made me feel better because he was so funny.

This was the BEST foot experience I ever had. I had to have all my dead toenails removed due to chemo. I was anxious and distrustful after 13 surgeries that "this won't hurt." Dr. Farnen was the best thing to happen to Nashville. He eased my fears and took me to the operating room to remove the toe nails, such a relief! Dr. Farnen -- young, professional, passionate about his work, knowledgeable, and compassionate toward his patients, especially the anxious ones like me--what's not to like??

I made an appointment with Dr Farnen because I was unable to walk on my right foot. My foot was x-rayed, and a diagnosis made to receive a shot and generic inserts for my shoes as well as a brace for my foot. Two months later, I am able to walk almost 100% pain free. Dr. Farnen is very thorough, listens well, and I would recommend him highly.

Dr. Farnen is undoubtedly the best. My son has had plantar warts and he has treated them successfully. He is the most polite, kind and compassionate doctor I have met in many, many years. He treats his patients as family/friends. I would highly recommend him for any podiatry needs you might have.
