Prospect, KY |
Saw her for a thumb fracture. She was very friendly and gave me options on treatment. She didn't rush into a surgery which ended up being the best decision. Would definately recommend.
Thank you so much for your kind words. That is my typical treatment philosophy which includes discussing all options with the patient as well as discussing the patients expectations, wants, and needs with treatment. I see that our ease of scheduling appointments and office environment scored low with you. We are working on those things as we speak, and it is not going overlooked. We will continue to try to improve to provide the best care for your hands in the Midwest!!!

I can't say enough good about Dr. Farr. She is so caring and funny. Her bedside manner is great. I will continue to see her as long as I have problems with my hands. If someone doesn't like her. They should maybe take a look at what's wrong with them.
Thank you Helen! I think I actually laughed out loud when I read your comment. It has been a joy to work with you. I look forward to the next appointment/visit we have!

Dr. Farr is an excellent surgeon! I suffered a rather severe left wrist/hand injury in October 2106, fast forward 4 short months and I am back to almost 100%. She is very knowledgeable in her field and concerned for the well being of her patients. Highly recommend!
Greg, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. It has been my pleasure to work with you. You have worked very hard to achieve the results you have obtained after surgery and I applaud your hard work and determination to come back from this injury! Well done! I am happy you chose me to be a part of it!

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!
Louisville, KY |
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.
