Patient Comments (5)
in Casa Grande, AZ |
I was a patient of Dr. Farber's for approximately 8-10 years. He successfully treated my Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis and kept me alive and breathing for well past the 5 year mortality rate linked to this disease. Eventually, he told me I was beyond further treatment and I would require a lung transplant or become a statistic. He told me he could do no more for me. He took the time to explain that he had reached his limitations. I am alive today because of his expertise.

Dr. Farber is very busy. Too busy, in fact. His office staff sits around gossiping instead of managing patient expectations of their wait time. It's not uncommon to wait 1-2 hours past your appointment time to be seen for 5 minutes by the doctor. Totally unacceptable for someone who has a job like mine. Maybe the office staff could make a call letting patients know the schedule is backed up and the doctor is behind so they don't come in and waste time.

I met Dr. Faber, in Mesa Hospital as he came in just to check me out for the hospital. I liked him very much. The hospital recommended that I see a Pulmonary doctor and so I called his office and set up an appointment. He does not beat around the bush; explains everything to were you will understand it which I like about him the most.
