Dr. Farkas is the best. He pulls no punches and explains the pros and cons of your problem and/or probable surgery. There is no rushing you out the door as other Dr's do. He takes time with you and gives you tine to make YOUR decision. Dr. Farkas enabled me to resume my life from debilitating back pain after two, what I considered failures, surgeries.. i have consulted him since for a neck problem and as always he gave me excellent advise..

He took care of a family member who fell off a roof. His vertebrae had exploded from the fall. After the nine-hour surgery Dr. Farkas met with us, answered our questions and took us our see our loved one. Less than 3 weeks later our family member crossed their rehab finish line and was able to walk out of the hospital.

He was great until after I had my surgery then refused to see me and answer my questions that the ARNP could not answer. I requested he call me after my appointment with him was cancelled, that was 5 months ago still no call. I have called his office three times since Feb. 9th for a refill of my prescription and still no one has returned my call.. This office is horrible, I've had debilitating headaches since my surgery and they have done nothing for me.
