Dr. Farr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Farr "I was originally born in Texas, but spent most of childhood in Southwest Missouri. I stayed close to home going to college in Tulsa, OK and eventually onto medical school at University of Oklahoma. From there my journeys took me to Syracuse, NY (brrrrrrrrr!) for 5 years of my orthopedic surgery residency. I trained in Louisville for my hand surgery training. And here I am today! I consider this my home now and love the people and the culture. "

This Surgeon is the best I have ever had. Been to others here in the Louisville area and not the best of luck with the others. Dr. Farr is down to earth and makes you very comfortable all the decisions you need to make for surgery to therapy. The Most Highest Recommended.

Thank you so much for your kind review. I work hard to make sure my patients understand their options, from conservative to more invasive treatment options. I feel knowledge is power, and I love to make my patients feel empowered while making these difficult decisions about treatment options. Thank you once again.
