I think he treats each patient as an individual, Not production line. Meaning that he listens to your question and answers that question without giving you a scripted answer

Dr Farber is very attentive and personable. I feel like he listens & understands my silly way of trying to tell him how I feel. I would/have told others of my experience and positive interaction with Dr Farber and his office.
