Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Farnsworth "The most effective care is the most sensible and practical care possible. If it's too burdensome, it's not going to work, so working with you (rather than just tossing treatments at you) is critical."

See the doctor BEFORE your scheduled office visit! I've been to Dr. Farnsworth's office 4 times. As is normal for me, I arrived early each time. Dr. Farnsworth took me in BEFORE my scheduled appointment time every time! The women in the front are friendly, gregarious, polite, professional, and efficient! Dr. Farnsworth is genuinely friendly. He listens to you and will explain issues to your satisfaction. Thank-you!

Dr. Farnsworth and the group at his practice are excellent! They are all receptive and care about your needs. I would highly recommend his services!! Jim Mondoro

Excellent dermatologist. Extremely intelligent and competent. Staff is lovely and wait time is minimal. And, as a bonus, the exam rooms have a beautiful view of Uptown, so waiting for the dr. is pleasant. Highly recommend for serious skin issues.

Dr. Farnsworth was amazing. By far the most thorough dermatologist that I have even been to. I have a family history of melanoma and have never felt so at ease after an appointment.

Finally! I found a dermatologist in New Orleans who is calm, competent and thoughtful. The other two I've tried were so distracted with their teaching duties that I felt invisible. I'm so happy I kept trying until I found a good one. The office staff is excellent. I felt so good there compared to a big hospital situation with all the parking problems, and chaos, and high prices. This is what medical care should be like.

Dr. Farnsworth is very honest, straight foward, and knowledgeable. The wait can be pretty long but that is because he takes the time to really diagnose his patients. Also, for LSU students from New Orleans, Dr. Farnsworth can be seen at the student health center. This is extremely convenient.
