I feel comfortable with Dr. Farkas. While he is business like, he is inclined to make extra effort to see that I am comfortable with our discussion. He is usually on time which means a lot to me. He reviewed my medications and changed some increasing my quality of life which I appreciate very much.

I moved to COS from Oh. Looking for a new Dr. isn't fun. After my 1st visit with Dr. Farkas I knew I had found my PCP. He's pleasant, professional, and he listened to what I had to say. I have full trust in the man.
