Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I recently had a colonoscopy with Dr. Farrell. He and his attending anesthesiologist and nurses were all exceptional.

I have been a patient of Dr. Farrell's for over seven years. He is by far the best physician I've ever encountered! His diagnoses are spot-on, and more importantly, his care and concern for each patient is most evident. I recommend him extremely highly!

I recently had a colonoscopy and an endoscopy done by Dr. Farrell. It was in relation to GERD symptoms and it was time to have a "look see" inside to make sure nothing was wrong (I am now 60 years old so it was due as well). Dr. Farrell met me both before and after the procedure and was thoroughly professional. Dr. Farrell afterwards followed up with me by phone and discussed my symptoms and when I told him that I was using holistic means to treat my symptoms, he said he supported me. No Rx. :)

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.
