Dr Farmer has been my doc for 33 years, seeing me through 2 miscarriages (one a molar pregnancy at 48 yrs old!) and 3 live births, he has always been wonderful in his care of my health and that of my children.

He should lose his license over what he did to my 80 year old mother. She was having hot flashes and he talked her into getting hormones at her age! She wanted to stop after the first which caused severe sciatica-like pain. He talked her into one more. When she asked for her money back, he told her after 2 they wouldn't refund your money. My mother suffered for months with heavy bleeding and a near miss with cancer because of their incompetence. They never said to continue taking progesterone

Farmer performed and botched an episiotomy when delivering my 6 pound son. His negligence caused an infection to build in my body for several years before I found out about his mistake. I had 2 surgeries within a month to get rid of the infection. Last fall I began having more issues leading to my hysterectomy and bladder repair. He has cost me thousands in medical bills. His error took away my ability to have more children. Statute of limitations on medical malpractice saved him. Worst Dr ever!
