What an amazing doctor! I am in my 70s and recently had to undergo a complete hysterectomy. The day after I felt like it had never happened and the recovery was a breeze. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this doctor and highly recommend him. He truly does care about his patients.

Dr. Farnam was very attentive and considerate to my needs and requests. Could not have been more pleased and thankful to him. Ms Bolhman has also been fantastic with her caring nature. All the nurses were very courteous and helpful. I recommend Dr Farnam.

He did my endometriosis removal surgery and it went SO much better than my first (and only other) surgery! Last time I was in horrible pain for 2-3 weeks straight. Now, it has barely been over 24 hours and I’m feeling pretty great!

It was for my annual check up . The nurse was very professional and gathered all my need information. I did not have to wait to long for Doctor Farnam to come in . He answered all my questions and concernsans Took his time with me and made sure I was as comfortable as can be for this exam.

I have been to more than 4 other doctors before finding the best, Dr. Farnam. I know this may sound corny, however, I am being very serious. I had not been to my annual check up in over 8 years because of the pain I would experience with the exam. I explained this to Dr. Farnam before the exam and it was as though he could feel my anxiety and as if though he knew EXACTLY what I was talking about. He assured me it wouldn't hurt, (I didn't believe him). He used a different instrument and took his time explaining every step he was taking. He was right, IT DIDN'T HURT! I literally could not believe it. I have a condition where my vaginal muscles contract as soon as I feel something, plus going through menopause doesn't help. He referred me to therapy and I will hopefully regain my sexual life again. Thank you, Dr. Farnam, you are the BEST!!!

I saw the PA not the doctor, she was very thorough and answered all my questions. I like the combination of urology and gynecology in one diciplone. I will use them again. Office staff efficient and helpful
