He is not only a great surgeon he is also one of the kindest people you will meet. He is personally invested in his patients and their outcomes. He is an amazing individual.

I received multiple recommendations for Dr. McFarlane. I did a considerable amount of research and found his reputation to be impeccable. When he met with me for a consultation he came across as a very trustable. He took ample time to explain the procedures we were looking at. Dr. Mcfarlane's staff is both professional and very helpful. I was in need of a lumbar discectomy for L4, L5. I am five months post surgery and the results thus far are excellent!
in Salt Lake City, UT |
I very much liked that Dr Macfarlane provided understandable explanations of each test and procedure to be performed. My opinion of him as a medical professional would rate 5 stars, but based on the almost two months it took to get in to see him, I would be reluctant to recommend him to those with very serious symptoms that might need to be treated very soon. In my personal case, my symptoms worsened during the long wait, and I believe the time required for my healing was extended because of it.
