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.!!
