Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Amazing Surgeon
I received and continue to receive excellent care from Dr. Farma and his team. He removed a GIST tumor from my Gastric Fundus. Thankfully it came back low risk of recurrence. My first Post Op CT Scan is in a couple months. Highly recommend Dr. Farma and his team. The care I received pre surgery, day of surgery and the time recovering was amazing! Fox Chase Cancer Center truly has the best Docs and staff.

Exceptional Care and Treatment
Without a doubt, I could not have placed my life in better hands than with Dr. Farma. After being diagnosed with Stage 3 Melanoma, Dr. Farma and his team prescribed a treatment plan consisting of surgery to remove the tumor on my back and cutting-edge immunotherapy that quickly eradicated my cancer. 5-Stars all around for Dr. Farma and his team and Fox Chase CC!!!

Dr. Farma has been doctor, surgeon, caretaker, and life saver for our mother! He and his entire team are not only at the top of their field but also have shown care and compassion above and beyond any other doctor we have seen. Any one of us in our family who have seen him in action would trust him with our lives. His team also deserves special mention as they go above and beyond to coordinate care, look deeper into issues, explain what is happening ... and are always there to help.!!
