Dr. Farr treated my son for a wrist injury including a radius fracture and ulna dislocation. She was professional and caring. She immediately saw an issue which was missed at the ER and worked quickly to confirm the diagnosis with imaging and get him in for surgery. We are extremely pleased with and grateful for her service! The office staff was also great.
Hi Patty, Thank you so much for your kind words and wonderful review. It has been my pleasure to work with both you and your son to help him feel better and back to 100 percent. Helping your son and working together as a team is one of the many reasons I pursued hand and wrist surgery. Thank you once again and look forward to seeing you guys in the office!

Dr Farr was personable and caring she explained what was going on with my hands a she treated me like i was a human. it was nice being talked to rather than talked at like most Dr's tend to do. I will recommend any and all who need good hand specialist to Dr Farr in the future.
Thank you so much for your kind comments! It makes me so happy to hear of your pleasant experience while visiting my clinic. Please come back if you need anything!

I find the above patients comments about Dr. Farr completely untrue. Dr. Farr was prompt, knowledgable, caring, warm, and funny. She diagnosed me accurately and provided treatment in an efficient manner, all with a pleasant, passionate, joyful attitude. I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Farr and would recommend to friends an family.
Thank you very much! I work hard to provide a timely, caring ", personable experience to all my patients.
Terrible doctor. Very unprofessional, cold & uncaring.
