My daughter Burnt her hand pretty bad so she was referred to Dr Farner to be honest I wasn't looking forward to it after reading everyone else's reviews however it was the total opposite he had the best personality he played with my daughter and was very informative to me as well to how I need to treat her wounds. He even offered to try and find us another Dr closer to us because it is a 4 hour drive to see him. All around I really liked him.

My daughter was injured at work. When her nerve test came back normal, he seemed to get a really bad attitude towards us. I had to ask him to put her off work because her injury doesn't allow her to use her hand. He wasn't going to do it and he told us it was because it wasn't workman's comp. Really, she was injured at work. I was floored, insulted. I will not be returning. We have chosen to use her father's insurance who is a vet to insure the best care possible for her. Awful doctor.

Dr. Farner's table side manner leaves much to be desired. A fellowship candidate did the actual physical exam. Then in walked Dr. Farner. He seemed in a hurry and did not explain very well at all what the procedure entailed. He injected both wrists and then gave me a brace to wear for 6 weeks. He made me feel stupid when I asked questions and in general seemed put out. 6 weeks later my wrist was not any better and I went to see Dr. Nicoson. Dr. Nicoson was awesome and able to help me.
