Dr. John M. Farmer Sr., MD says

Small, very patient oriented office with very easy parking right at our front door. Always appreciative of any feedback that patients give and very quick to remedy any problems that might arise with patient's. Office hours daily from 8 AM to 4:30 PM. Return phone calls within 24 hours usually.

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!

Dr. Farmer Sr. says...

Born in Winchester, KY and attended George Rogers Clark High School (Clark County). Graduated in 1968. Graduated from Georgetown College with a B.S. and went on to attend University of Louisville School of Medicine where I graduated in 1976. 4 year residency program in OB-GYN from 1976-1980 under Dr. John Queenan, MD. I've practiced in east Louisville since 1980 primarily at Norton Suburban Hospital where I had the privilege of delivering the first babies in 1988 (set of twins) as well as Baptist East Hospital. I am a member of the American College of OB-GYN (ACOG) and became Board certified in 1982. I also am a member of the AMA. I also received a Master of Science Degree in 1976 in the field of Physiology and Biophysics. My research was in "membrane transport" and still enjoy being involved in research.

I have sat on the "Board of Trustees of Georgetown College" as well as their Foundation Board. Many of the babies I have delivered have gone on to attend Georgetown College. I also received my private pilot's license in 1978 and have thoroughly enjoyed the aviation field over the years.
