I came to Dr Farr 8 years ago and he made my visit to Ortho Indy so comfortable. I had already been through several knee surgeries and then Dr Farr did the last one 8 years ago and I’ve not had a problem since. Very informative of the surgery procedures and what to expect afterwards. I highly recommend Dr Farr.

Dr. Farr is one of the best medical professionals in his field. His partial knee replacements have kept me walking.
Thank you for the review.

Conservative approach and willing to explain, discuss, answer questions to find the best option for the patients individual situation. Didn't jump to full knee replacement which I am thankful for. With some therapy, and injections I am better.
Stay far away!!! Only wants to see patients who don't ask questions and don't mind billing their insurance for unnecessary surgeries. Dr. Farr only cares about lining his pockets.

Dr. Farr is an excellent physician. He is very professional, and an amazing surgeon! Prior to visiting Dr. Farr I visited another orthopedic surgeon, where I had a less than desirable outcome. Thanks to Dr. Farr I am pain free! He is very personalized, and will find what is best for you, as no two people are the same. I would highly recommend him to anyone having knee pain. Thank you Dr. Farr!
Thank you for the review, Andy!

Dr. Farr was very good at taking plenty of time to explain the condition and options so that I didn't feel rushed. He is also an excellent surgeon from my personal experience.
Thank you for the review, Katherine. Our patient's experience is our top priority.

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.

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.
