in Amherst, MA |
Several of my family members go to Dr. Farkas. We have all had excellent care with Dr. Farkas and I would recommend him to anyone I know.
in Springfield, MA |
Very pleasant person, easy to talk to, he listens, seems pretty patient. I feel he is a good physician but is a human being and human beings do make mistakes at times, which Dr. Farkus has done. Although I do not think he is a perfect person/doctor, I would still rely on him and recommend him to friends.
