    I would not recommend this "doctor" to anyone. He needs to retire. He is a "hospitalist," which is a physician that has no ability to practice medicine in the general public. Dr. Farmer's method of practicing medicine is to enter a hospital room and state who he is, then tell you the obvious, which is the diagnosis given you when you entered the hospital. Then he leaves...NO PLAN OF CARE, no information elicited from the patient. HE IS PATHETIC
