All these people who keep writing these bad reviews about Dr. Farber are either wanting to hear a diagnosis that they do not have or they do not take the time to get to know her. She may have a different personality but she is a Genius! She is caring and really takes the time to find out what is going on with her patients. She is VERY good at what she does!!

When my mother was sick, no one knew how to help her. Dr Farber did everything she knew to do and helped my mother get better. She was extremely caring and compassionate to my mother and made sure we both knew what to do to keep my mother on her road to recovery. We are very grateful to Dr Farber.

Didn't care about my father AT ALL. Talks way too fast. He's elderly, he can't understand people who talk fast. Also adjusted his meds and didn't want to follow up til 6 months?! He's now very ill because of her incompetence. I'm beyond furious and heartbroken. She's supposed to be a decent doctor.. guess not!

Dr. Farber treats my brain-damaged son for epileptic seizures. She has spent a huge amount of time determining the correct kind and dosage of medications to treat him and she going to his location.This shows her caring and wanting to accommodate the patient. I find her willing to talk with me, his mother, about his condition and in wanting to help him overcome his problem the best way possible. She can seem abrupt, but to me, this shows her professionalism in wanting to "get the job done."
in Cleveland, TN |
Dr. Farber has the worst bed-side manner of any doctor I have ever been to. She talked "down" to me, and did not address or sympathize with my concerns. She was also in a big hurry to get out of the room and I had to really concentrate to "get" what she was trying to say because she talked so quickly. Not personable at all.
in Tunnel Hill, GA |
No bed side Mannor back in the stone age medical and charts and diagnosis and never talks to you or family or a knowledge new problems and she's only toloable and not even that my father seen her 25 + years and she's horrible and he will be changing.
in Ringgold,ga |
