I have recommended Dr Farmer to several friends. My surgery went well, the friendliest and efficient staff. The PA who was outstanding and professional. .Recovery has been slow because of being on blood thinner. Very pleased with results

Outstanding doctor. Kind and professional. Listen to your concerns. definitely the best experience !

After several years of chronic pain, I went to Dr. Farmer. My hip was very bad. He did the operation and my recovery was incredibly fast. I did everything in half the time of other people I talked to and the therapists were impressed. Other people with a different Dr. took far longer to recover. Within four weeks, I was biking five miles round trip and training my dog in protection sports. At six weeks, I started back using the weight machines at the gym and biking 5 mi round trip 3 or 4 x week.

Would not recommend!! Having trouble with the surgery he did 5 years later

Dr. Farmer became our family Orthopedic specialist years ago. We have two very active boys that are heavily involved with sports. Dr. Farmer first became our go to Doc when our then 16 year old was hit head on by a car. Dr. Farmer is not only a very precise physician, he sacrifices his own personal time for a patient in need. He is not only extremely talented as a physician, his friendly warm and caring demeanor makes you feel at ease and completely informed.

Dr.Farmer was excellent including his staff. He explained everything to me in a way I was able to understand. I will recommend all my family and friends to him.

I had a full left hip replacement with Dr. Farmer, and I cannot recommend him to anyone that needs hips or knees taken care of. Dr Farmer and his team makes it so easy, from pre-op to surgery and then to recovery, they take care of everything. I started to walk the same day of finishing my surgery, which I thought would be much harder than it was. If you are living in pain, do not hesitate to contact the Doc, he is a great caring person.
