Care Philosophy

It is an honor to join the staff of the Fox Chase Cancer Center. My initial exposure during medical school at Fox Chase led me down the path of Surgical Oncology. As a native Philadelphian, I am privileged to work at such an esteemed institution. I was enthralled then by the dedicated care of the staff in dealing with all aspects of treating patients diagnosed with cancer, and I hope to continue this throughout my career at Fox Chase. Most importantly, I hold my patients as my number one priority. I will spend as much time as necessary educating, answering questions and providing guidance for each individual patient to help them throughout each stage of treatment. I believe in candid discussions, where both the patients and families goals and expectations are openly communicated. We will work together as a team to formulate a treatment plan. My personal goal is to treat and care for every patient with the same compassion and honesty as if they were a friend or family member. Areas of expertise: Surgical Oncology, Melanoma, Colorectal Cancer, Merkel Cell Carcinoma, Sarcoma.

Patient Comments (2)
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.!!
