      Dr. Farmer was our adult son's psychiatrist for several years. On his very first visit, our son told us that Dr. Farmer had diagnosed his problem as PTSD, based on early childhood experiences. He had initially seen Dr. Farmer for help with drug dependency. From then on, our son reframed his entire life around this sense of victimization . Dr. Farmer prescribed Suboxone to help him off drugs but also added prescriptions - xanex, adderall and others, all of which distorted his personality and his hold on reality. He loved meeting with Dr. Farmer. His manner was excellent and kind, but no progress was ever made. Yes, wait times were ridiculously long, but other factors are much more important. Our son died of a drug overdose. We do not recommend Dr. Farmer for those who share our son's reasons for seeking help.

      Dr. Farmer was running much less behind as his schedule has come better adjusted over the last 6 months. I have multiple conditions that require a psychopharmacologic approach to treatment and we discussed my current arangements of medications and had a discussion about the things my therapist and I have been trying to work on. He was very supportive and validated everything my therapist has been telling me.

      His staff are not good at their job. They don’t know how to schedule patients. I’ve called and asked for a call back from Dr. Farmer for over a year. I’m sure he never got the message because he is a very caring and intelligent man. It is impossible to get a hold of him. Dr. Farmer is an excellent psychologist,. It is too bad he doesn’t have a more professional and friendly staff.

      My girlfriend has been in the office for 5 and a half hours for an appointment scheduled at 8am and still has 3 patients ahead of her. How is this okay? Seriously buy a bigger office, hire more doctors, rent them offices and patient rooms, and give them some of your patients. I have 1 day off a week and damn would I love to spend it with her too bad she is waiting in the office in a room full of people who stink and annoy her. Be very happy a patient can't charge a late fee or he would be broke.

      I love Dr. Farmer. He is an excellent doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients and their needs; however, he schedules his patients in 15 minute increments - thus, what should be a 15 minute appointment then turns into an hour...and I have waited nearly FIVE hours before to see him. The office staff has gotten better, but if you are even 5 minutes late, you are charged a $50 fee...when they are late EVERY time.

      Thank you Dr Farmer for treating me with like a person. In the past, I was the next patient in line to receive a hand full of prescriptions by a psychiatrists that didn't care enough to listen if the medications were helping me. Your staff is amazing as well. I've dealt with some not so friendly "gatekeepers" with the compassion of a rock.

      Thank you Dr. Farmer for helping me with all of my many conditions. I know that further action is required and one day it will be possible. Until then, I will continue to take my medication as prescribed and not give up. Thank your staff for me, they are so sweet to me and know me when I call and when I walk in. I believe you all care so much and for someone that has no one, that means the world.

      Dr. farmer prescribed my adult daughter, who has a history of Biploar Disorder and heroin addiction Adderall and Xanax, in addition to Subutex. I am not sure the reason or science behind this combination but she's had overdosed, had seizures and is now also Xanax addicted. She also has uncontrolled manic episodes and depression in which she is unable to care for herself. For those with dual diagnosis, please think twice about seeing this doctor. The do no harm ethicis do not apply.

      Dr. Farmer is a great listener and will medicate you as needed. When it comes to any therapies, not sure if he is your man or not. As for the wait time, he is always behind or he is double booking. You will wait at least 1.5 hours beyond your scheduled appointment. I find this extremely rude!

      Dr Farmer is absolutely awesome and caring for our son. However, be prepared to have a very very long wait for an appointment. I've waited up to 5 hours after arriving to actually get to see him. If you want an excellent doc, just prepared to have lots of patience waiting to see him.
