Treats you as if you are stupid. Big ego gets in the way of patients life. His head nurse angie is the same way. Rest of the staff is great. Looks good on paper but when complication arise he hides

Great doctor! I have been seeing him for over a year, and he has pulled me out of a number of health scares related to my transplant. While the wait time can be long, it's worth the wait. Schedule early appointments to see him quicker. His nursing staff is great too!

Dr. Farag was very kind, thorough, and patient during my appointment. He answered our numerous questions and even anticipated questions that we would have. He waited for me to think of more questions to ask and stayed with us until we had covered everything. Time was no issue for him. It seemed he was very concerned for my and my family's wellbeing. A great doctor in my opinion, and I am very thankful to have him as my transplant physician. His transplant team seems exceptional as well!
