I found Dr. Farkas after going to another gastroenterologist who was incredibly rude and nasty and full of himself. That particular doctor is associated with Spfld. Med. Associates and his last name begins with a Z. Dr. Farkas is a breath of fresh air, so very pleasant, very nice personality.

I think that Dr. Farkas should be more diligent reading patients upper GI tests instead of jus saying all is okay when it isn't. When a person has a stomach that is under their breasts, everything is not OKAY. Shame on him. Not once but twice.
