It was too much trouble to get authorization from my insurance co. for a procedure. He did procedures in the office which would have been safer done in a hospital out patient status.

Dr. Farag and his medical staff are great. Courteous and knowledgeable. He takes the time to talk to you and make you feel comfortable. The only issue I have is with his billing. There is a copay for everything even follow ups just to get results. Despite that I still recommend him.
