Met with Dr Farr to discuss PFA and also injection therapy. He was polite, on time, did not rush our conversation, direct(which I appreciate), and very sharp. I will return to try to injection therapy in the near future.
in Ashburn, VA |
Dr. Jack Farr is a wonderful doctor. I flew to see him from Virginia. He spent over an hour with me which I greatly appreciated. He took time to do a thorough physical exam and took time to take measurements from my x-ray. Dr. Farr also spent time on education and explaining things to me. He is a kind man who seems to really want to help patients that are in pain. Additionally, I appreciate that he was conservative and didn't want to immediately jump into surgery.
