Patient Comments (2)
in Revere, MA |
Dr. Farber unfortunately doesn't return phone calls, he isn't caring towards his patients. I certainly would not recommend him. My mother died in his care last year not only did it take him about a month to give us call not only for his condolences but to tell us what he thought happened. It's been 6 months since we have been promised a copy of the autopsy report with numerous calls to the office and still nothing. Completely unprofessional.
Office staff is terrible. Disorganized, things not done in a timely or efficient manner. Good Dr though, seems to have too many patients. Office wait was over 2 hrs.
