I met Dr. Farzan August 17, 2021 at BSA, Amarillo, TX. I was told wjile in ER that I was not having an appendix problem but I had a "Mass" on my lower right side and was referred to Dr. Farzan. He explained all the tests and described fully that the surgery could be done laproscopically unless something unexpected came up. I would refer Dr. Farzan to any woman who needed his expertise. My surgery was successful and benign

Dr. Farzan is a measured, thoughtful, and kind doctor. He is incredibly knowledgeable and will take as much time as you need to explain your condition and the best possible treatment plan. He is very warm and congenial, sometimes a rarity when you are navigating a cancer diagnosis. I am 2 years out from my last treatment and asked to be kept in his care rather than returning to my previous OBGYN. I trust Dr. Farzan and feel like I am receiving better, more thorough care.

Dr. Farzan and his staff are very professional and kind mannered. He made me feel very comfortable and explained everything in great detail to me and my family and never made me feel rushed at visits and I always left feeling confident of his abilities though out my visits, surgery, and follow up's. His staff, especially Samantha, are just as kind, patient, and understanding to your needs. If you have questions they take thier time to explain everything. Such a great medical staff and office.

Office not nearly the quality as my beloved Dr Benny Phillips. Nurse ( I guess as no intro was given) was nice as was Dr. However, my prescription wasn't called, electronically submitted, etc for two days after I drove over 300 miles to see Dr Farzan. This is a negative.

Expect to wait at least an hour after your appointment time. Dr. Farzan is very rough if you are having any vaginal exam, and I mean ROUGH. Will find another oncology doctor. He also does not do surgery in the local hospitals.

Colleen Vermeulen in Dumas, TX – Sep 29, 2018
I had a total robot assisted laparoscopic hysterectomy with Dr Farzan on August 15 at BSA Hospital. I was skeptical about traveling to Amarillo for the surgery. It was a great experience. I did not experience any pain from gas in my abdomen as I did with a previous Fallopian tube removal. In fact, I have had very little pain at all. BSA is a first class hospital with good food and very attentive care. The admission and dismissal procedures are fast and simple. Thank you Dr Farzan and BSA!
