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. "

Dr. Farr treated my elderly Mom’s fractured elbow. She went the extra mile to make sure Mom was comfortable and didn’t get stuck at the hospital too long. My Mom loved her! My siblings and I were very impressed with her compassion and warmth.

I see some reviews of ease of scheduling appointments, office environment, and staff friendliness could be improved upon. When I open my new practice, I will work hard to improve on these things. Thank you so much and hope your mother is doing well!
