Dr. Farnham is an excellent physician well trained in his field of addiction medicine. he is friendly, easy to communicate with. THAT BEING SAID...sadly his entire staff sucks! only word for it! they are unprofessional, lazy and inept. how this facility functions boggles my mind. unfortunately, Dr. Farnham does not get involved in the practices of the front office so it's a circus w a constant chain of errors all w/o accountability. why he stays confuses me. i return out of ins. limitation

Peraonally I like Dr Farnham however his office is terrible in regards to follow up. They say they will call yet never do. Referrals take month. I was told by the ER that I needed a same day appointment and told to get a referral quickly. I handed them this requeat in writing 2 weeks ago and they still have not even started. I have had a condition for over a year and I ask once a month and they brush me off. Time to find a new primary.
