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.
