I have worked with Dr. Farrar through construction projects so have known him for decades and eventually need his services. He is very compassionate, extremely knowledgeable, and can put you at ease in the worst of times by explaining the situation in a clear and caring way. My care under his My step-mother was having issues with her heart and her cardiologists. I had her see Dr. Farrar and within two months after seeing her and changing her medications she was back to her active self and well.

First met Dr Farrar after admission to hospital from ER. He delivered what could have been terrifying news, I needed open heart surgery ASAP, with empathy and concern for me and my family. He answered all questions and worries in a manner that gave us confidence in our decision to have the surgery there at NKCH in the next 48 hours.
