I am so pleased that my primary referred me to dr farha. He is knowledgeable, caring and highly skilled. I was amazed that I did not bruise as forewarned and healing much better than I ever imagined. He and his staff worked hard to get me cleared for surgery. You are in very good hands with this practice and can't imagine going anywhere else if I need surgery again

Dr. Farha is wonderful! He has the very best bedside manner. With his awesome smile and reassuring presence he lets you know that he will take the very best care of you. Elaine in his office is a true gem! She is so positive and encouraging that you just know that everything is going to be ok. Believe me, I was scared to death, and I felt very well taken care of as well as comforted.
