What People Say About Dr. Laith Farjo, MD

Excellent highly skilled surgeon!!! Dr. Farjo repaired my right shoulder 8 years ago, and when I needed the left one repaired last December, going back to Dr. Farjo was a no-brainer. He has an extremely well organized office staff and his PA's are first class. Shoulder surgery is no fun, but when you have complete confidence in the surgeon and staff taking care of you, it makes the in the experience in total well worth it. Nothing but good things to say about Dr. Farjo and his team.

About 2 years after a successful rotator cuff repair my tissues started to tear again. Then I put up with two years of progressively worse constant shoulder pain and limited motion until I couldn’t handle it anymore. Dr Farjo did a reverse shoulder replacement and aside from incisional pain there was no pain. No shoulder pain. After 6 weeks of physical therapy I had nearly full range of motion. I highly recommend Dr Farjo to anyone with shoulder issues. M Strocel, CRNA

Dr. Fargo and his team are top notch and highly recommend. I have had 3 rotator cuffs, a knee, and hand work and the shoulder was the best work and overall experience.

I thought the whole process of working with Dr Farjo and Advanced Ortho went smoothly. 5 months later after an 80% quadricep tendon tear in my knee, I am back to most activities.

Dr Farjo and staff are the best. Everything is explained in detail and in laymen’s terms. They will answer all your questions and you never feel rushed. Dr Farjo is up-to-date on the latest techniques and research. You will not find a better doctor or staff

Dr. Farjo is an excellent surgeon. He performed rotator cuff surgery which was a success. I saw Dr. Farjo to get a second opinion because the previous Dr. I saw didn't think it was possible to fix it again. (Had surgery on the same shoulder in the past) Anyway, he performed the surgery and I would go back to him again if I need to for any other issues that might come up. Staff is always nice and helpful.

Had a hip arthoscopy sugery with Dr. Farjo. Turned out great and at every appointment I felt listened to and he took the time to answer all my questions. Before I had the surgery I saw several doctors and he was by far the one I felt most comfortable with. I have also seen him for knee and shoulder concerns and he is always very caring.

Fixated on joint replacement rather than patient functionality and health. Although of late this practice appears to be more attuned. I do not recommend him.

Dr. Farjo repaired my left rotator cuff back in 2005 and after healing it was as good as new and I am happy to say that my recent right rotator cuff surgery went just as well. An over all great experience as far as surgeries go.

From the time you start the experience with the office staff and Dr. Fargo it is a 5 star experience. The staff is very efficient and caring. You can tell everyone is trained and knows their job. Dr. Fargo has some of the best bedside manners. You can feel that he is concerned. He makes sure that you know everything about your treatment and what to expect. He follows thru and gives you alternatives that could speed up the recover and healing process. Great experience! I recommend AOS.

Gifted sergeon very greedy with pain meds post op. Pain levels after shoulder surgery were horrendous and I was never informed how bad it could be after such a procedure. Also misrepresented how much the pain block I payed extra for would work ( did nothing!)
