Excellent doctor. Was referred to him by my Primary Care Physician for routine gastro procedure. Most recently he found a mass in my thoat/neck area. He told me I needed to see an ENT specialist as it could be cancer. He was right. I went through chemo and radiation treatments and today I am cancer free. I am thankful he found the mass that day or I might not be living to post about it. Dr. Farrell is a Top Doc in my book ! I am forever grateful to him.

he did a colonoscopy 11 years ago and was over an hour late. recently I waited 1 hr15 min to be called from the waiting room and another 15 min before Dr, Farrell came in. he ordered a colonoscopy(he was on time) which did not show anything and he did not do a follow-up. I would not recommend this doctor to anybody!
