Dr. Farbstein is a professional and caring physician. I have been his patient for 30 years. I hold him as the gold standard of compassionate care. I hope that my two children who are physicians reach his level of compassion and competence.

Outstanding family Doctor. Like a walking dictionary. His vast medical knowledge, outstanding analytical skills, and attention to details, has kept my entire family healthy for the over 30 years. We have been amazed at the accuracy of his findings, catching life threatening conditions early on, enabling our quick and full recovery. He never rushes our visits, taking the time to listen, ask questions, investigate our symptoms, and educate us on his findings. Treats patients like they're family.

Sam has been my primary care physician for over 30 years. I sincerely believe that he is the most dedicated professional I have ever met. He keeps up with all changes in the rapidly changing medical field. He takes considerable time with me at each visit to discuss my health and my concerns. He clearly has defined a path that I should follow to keep me healthy. I consider Sam a friend and hold him in my highest esteem. I would heartily recommend Dr. Farbstein to anyone seeking a new physician.

Glad I have Dr. Farbstein as a Doctor. He keeps me in good health,and makes sure I have all my yearly test done. (blood work, flu shots,) I can talk openly about anything that's giving a problem,and he gives me options,and solutions to them. Very understanding ,and caring. Hope he stay's in practice for a long time.

Dr Farbstein has monitored my mother in laws complex medical history with care and compassion for 30 years. Although Advocate has tried to take the humanity out of medicine, Dr.Farbstein has remained connected to his patients needs and delivers quality healthcare with a special human touch. He has fielded many late night calls, cared for my mother in law during off hours, stayed unreasonably late to assist her needs, and been the best medical advocate we could hope for. The wait is worth it.

I've been seeing Dr Farbstein for over 10 years. He genuinely cares about his patients as human beings. He upholds confidentiality. He explains things to me in a way which I can understand and spends the necessary time with me always.I would not even consider changing doctors.

Dr Farbstein has been treating me for the last and over 10 years, he has helped me throught the worst times of my life. He is a wonderful and kind understanding doctor who you can say anything to and he understand you and my problems and knows the best solutions, i have things wrong with me that i believe he alone understands and knows how to treat them and me you can't say that about others because they don't take the time to listen and understand what i am going through like Dr Farbstein does,
