Laura – Jun 17, 2021
Dr. Farjami is an excellent physician. I feel so very fortunate that he was assigned to my case when I was diagnosed with colon cancer and a Sarcoma cancer. He is a constant source of the highest level of care. At first I was trying to learn about my cancer but later realized it was far too complicated which caused me great anxiety. I have since learned to trust my life to Dr. Farjami and now I never worry about getting the very best treatment because I have Dr. Farjami managing my care. It is a blessing to be able to lean on him and allow him to worry about what needs to be done to treat my cancers. Dr. Farjami has also been so understanding of my mental health and even my concerns about other health conditions outside of his Oncology specialization. I could go on and on and on about what a great Physician he is, but I will just simply say again how fortunate I am to have him as my Oncologist these past three years! I would recommend him to anyone who wishes to have the highest level

Dr. Farjami is both rigorous and compassionate, the best doctor one can have when diagnosed with breast cancer. The way he provides care, and relies on an excellent, coordinated team to support the patient is absolutely remarkable. I was very fortunate for having been referred to him by my GP.

Dr. Farjami is an excellent doctor. He understands the intricacy of my particular issues which is quite complex. He has a great bedside manner and is willing to listen to the patient and their family....even if it isn't related to his field of medicine. I highly recommend him and would send my family to see him if needed.

Clear, concise feedback. I feel that Dr. Farjami gives me a complete rundown of his analysis of my situation. Even though he is often repeating the same information he has given me in prior meetings, I appreciate him doing so, as it helps me remember and internalize his comments and recommendations.

This is a review about scheduling an appointment. I called the office in the morning on a Friday and was transferred to the VM of the new patient coordinator. I left a message - no response. A couple hours went by, same deal. I called at the end of the day and someone tracked down the new patient coordinator for me. She hadn't listened to my message, said she would need some paperwork from my doctor, and promised to call back ASAP or no later than Monday morning. Neither happened.

Roland in Amsterdam, NH – Apr 10, 2017
I have been a patient of Dr. Farjami for over three years. I would give him 10 stars if possible! He is warm, caring, kind, a good listener and is always well-informed of my current health status after tests and scans. All of the employees in his office speak very highly of him and I rarely see anyone new, because they apparently like their workplace and co-workers. I have Stage IV breast cancer and Dr. Farjami always speaks with optimism and hope for my future treatment.

Linda in long beach, ca – Mar 27, 2017
He has been my oncologist for diffuse large B-cell lymphoma since 2013. He has an excellent bedside manner and encouraged me to seek out 2nd and 3rd opinions. The staff is professional, highly skilled and very caring. The only concern I have is that they seem to be understaffed the last year or so. Maybe because his practice and medical group, Pacific Shores Medical Group, is so well-respected they've had an increase in new patients.
