Patient Comments (1)
in Bellevue, WA |
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Failor’s for close to four years. He has always had the upmost professional disposition while being personal enough to express genuinely concern about me. I leave always feeling heard. I know it doesn’t mean much, but even when I’ve seen him a whole year later, he has remembered details about my personal life that has made me feel like he truly cares.
