Dr. Farrell was recommended for emergency intestinal surgery by primary doctor during hospital stay. Very satisfied with outcome. I and my family members would highly recommend Dr. Farrell. Not many surgeons possess excellent surgical skills plus a great bedside manner. Dr. Farrell is blessed with both.

He said he could fix my problem when no plastic surgeon had been able to or in one case even try! He not only fixed it, but it even looks better and is even with the rest of my back!!!!!!!!!!!! He answers his own phone or calls right back!!!!!!! He really cared about me and my issue!!!!!!!!

Dr. Farrell is an excellent surgeon. I had a serious appendectomy and believe he saved my life. After being disgnosed, the Chief of Surgery never responded. Dr. Farrel was in the hospital within an hour and had me in surgery quickly. He is very likeable and easy to talk to. Dr. Farrell is very knowledgeable and was on target to how long i needed to stay in the hospital and extent of disability time at home. I would highly recommend him for his skill, knowledge and bedside manner.

Wonderful staff and great patient care.
I traveled a distance to be seen by Dr. Farrell. The surgery went well, and he has an excellent bedside manner. Very kind and easy to reach. I loved how straightforward he was, how easy it was to make an appointment, and get his advice. He checked on me several times after surgery and only discharged me when all concerns were addressed and precautions taken. I highly recommend him. The staff in his office were professional and efficient.
