Avoid Dr. Farr! I was lied to, tricked into surgery I made clear I did not want, then he treated me like I was his servant. Some should tell him that he is not in Iran anymore!

I saw Dr. Farr twice in his Manteca office. He ended up referring me to a different specialist since there were limited options that he could offer for my condition. However, I was very impressed by his personable and caring manner. He was the kindest, most compassionate doctor I have ever...more
