I went to see Dr. Fahrenbach knee pain I was having on and off for a few years. I thought it was something I was going to have to live with. After treatment my knee was much better. His nurse Gayle was very helpful and made sure she followed up with me. The office staff was very organized and wait time was minimal.

Great doctor. I have been seeing him for years and wouldn't go to any other practice. Staff was respectful, Dr. Fahrenbach fixed my knee before I could walk my daughter down the aisle. 5 stars!

I have had multiple pleasant experiences here in his office. The receptionists are very welcoming along with a clean waiting room! I have found Dr. Fahrenbach to be very thorough every time I have been in his office and he LISTENS to me. My concerns are always addressed. I like when a doctor takes the extra mile for his patients.

I called to make an appoitment as a self paid patient, first answer from Office recepcionist was $250 base visit. I called them second time in an hour to schedule an appoitment and this time i talked to the other employee, she also said the visit cost is $250! When i was scheduling visit i got a question if am single and married. I am married i said, i was put on hold, and next i was told the visit will cost me $500!!! I belive this doctor is more a businessman then real doctor! Beaware!
