About Me

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.

Very open and honest. Helps to make you feel comfortable. Does not push cosmetic products (very rare among dermatologists!).

I was seen promptly upon arrival and physician and staff were very caring & professional. I was seen early in the day for a biopsy and was asked to call back before days end to report how I was doing. All questions were answered at my appointment & had a very positive experience. I would highly recommend Dr Farnsworth to everyone.

Dr. Farnsworth was extremely patient and attentive. He knew right away what had inflamed my 90 year old uncle's skin and took the time to wrap it for the best and quickest results. Thanks Dr. Farnsworth for caring.

He takes care of communicating with the patient and be understood. The two times I have visited him I felt taken care of by a doctor who cares for the patient. I felt a personal touch not common with other doctors.

Great friendly staff. Dr. Farnsworth was running behind but apologized several times to me and my kids. He spent a lot of time taking pictures of my concerns and discussed them at length in a manner that was understood.
