Care Philosophy

In my practice, the basis of providing care is to educate the patient regarding her medical condition. I provide medical and/or surgical management based on a mutual decision by the patient and her physician. I welcome and encourage patient questions. I believe that successful management of a patient?s condition is based on the patient having a thorough understanding of the problem, management options, and the need for follow-up to determine the effectiveness of treatment.

By far one of the absolute best Physician I’ve been to in my 51 years of life! So compassionate, caring, and attentive to my situation and needs. I’m very thankful to God for the opportunity to meet Dr. Sebastian Fara and to experience his professionalism.
I have recommended this doctor to many people, who are now patients of his. He is very patient and explains everything in depth. He spends alot of time wirh each patient so you do not feel rushed. Great bedside manner.

I started seeing Dr. Sebastian Faro, MD last February 2016. I was at the end of my rope with a severe chronic condition that I had not been able to get a resolution to though my OBGYN was wonderful and tried everything she could to help me. That is when she referred me to Dr. Faro. From the beginning he was a caring physician who listened to you and never rushed to address your issues and concerns. Since then I see him around every six months and he has been able to give me great relief.

Dr. Faro is a wonderful, and caring doctor. He is very knowledgeable and patient, who doesn't make you feel like he is rushing you out of there like many I've experienced. Ive had an on ongoing issue mutliple doctors weren't able to diagnose. I was finally referred to Dr. Faro after a year of no answers, and he found the problem on my first visit. He listens, and explains things very well. I always feel taken care of during my visits. Highly recommend!

Such a horrible Dr! I do not recommend this place at all. They are very unprofessional and the service they give is extremely poor. I was there for an appointment and they refused to take me in there after I was waiting for almost 3 hours!! they wanted me to pay cash ! My PCP sent them the authorization but they were giving me troubles and they were not helping me at all. They just want money and they do not care for the patient! terrible terrible

I am so thankful to have met Dr. Faro. When I explained my situation and worries they gave me an appointment right away. Dr Faro took the time to examine me thoroughly and then to explain. He was compassionate, caring and understanding. He saw me as a patient and a person, not as a number. He gave me reassurance and I felt cared for. I wish all the doctors were like him.
in Crosby, TX |
Dr. Faro helped save my life in a second surgery days after a horrible absess was found during a hysterectomy. His bedside manner was so reassuring--I looked forward to seeing him in the early mornings in my hospital bed. He often came at the end of the day, too. I pray for him and will always be grateful!
