I had a very poor experience with Dr. Farnam. I came in for help determining if I have a food allergy (I have a family history of that allergy and was experiencing symptoms). He was dismissive, condescending, and put words in my mouth. He treated me like a child. He ordered many expensive tests, yet failed to address my reason for visiting. He insisted my seasonal allergies and asthma were not well controlled, even though they are. I felt he was after my money. I will not return to his office.

First rate treatment of allergic rhinitis (complicated by flu, prolonged bronchitis & sinus infection). Compassionate & listens in addition to prompt med. Allergy shots help recover energy. Was sent to Dr. Farnam by an ENT doctor. Office staff is well-organized and courteous too. Thank you, Dr. Farnam !

Watch out for the medical advice. Gave me corticolsteroids for breathing condition. Then when I had bad side effects he said to stop right then and there. I went into withdrawals and ended up in the ER.!
