San Francisco, CA |
Best doctor experience I have ever had.
in Eureka, CA |
Easy to work with. Good office.
Amazingly kind staff, brought my back RIGHT at my appointment time which has NEVER happened to me with a doctor before! Extremely caring and took his time. Everything was so thorough.
in Rancho Cordova, CA |
After repeatedly failing to secure contact, much less an appointment, with the gastroenterology group recommended by my PCP, I decided to find a real doctor with a real doctor's office on my own. I got in touch with Dr. Farrell's office and from there on it was peaches and cream. Competent office personnel, a competent, caring physician, a timely appointment, a procedure performed without complications, and in America no less! Highly recommended by a critical care nurse with 37 years experience.

Dr. Farrell goes above and beyond in providing healthcare. Dr. Farrell is extremely thorough, takes the time to listen to patients, and helps put patients at ease, even in the most difficult and uncomfortable situations. Even when I was reluctant to have a procedure, Dr. Farrell provided me with options that would make the experience easier for me.

Friendly, easy-going who explained well the proposed procedure for a colonoscopy.
