Patient Comments (9)
in Walsenburg, CO |
This Doc is just amazing in that I have had four surgical repairs for my arthritis damaged joints and have had very very little pain during recovery and a positive outcome from them all !! He has compassion for his patients and a great bedside manner. The last procedure got a bit complicated, but he was great at explaining the situation and helping me overcome my obstacles. I am so glad I have a wonderful Doc to help me in my struggle with arthritis.

I had a torn ACL,broken tubular plato and went to Dr. Farnwoth to have it looked at. He then gave me the option to have surgery or not depending on my life style and also told me to go get a second and even a third opinion for other Dr's. Which I though was good to hear. So I went through with the surgery since I climb and snowboard a lot. Two months after surgery I climbed the west Spanish peak, and four months after I did the creatone traverse with no issues my knee felt great!

I am very impressed with Dr. Farnworth's checking specific consultations with me. He spent time explaining the way the surgery would go before and how things were done during the surgery and after the surgery when I was still having trouble with my knees he spent time to diagnose what was happening and came up with solutions to the pain without just handing me pain pills. I think Dr. Farnworth has a welcoming personality and treats his patients with respect and great care.
