I actually recommend Dr. Farr and the other providers in his office to anyone I meet that is looking for a primary care doctor. I have been completely satisfied in every aspect overall as a patient of this practice and hope to let others experience the same. I have seen Dr. Farr when I first established with the practice and he is excellent and very enthusiastic. I now see Jillian the PA and love her. She knows my story and makes sure to address all my concerns. I never leave feeling unsatisfied
in Garden Grove, CA |
It is such a surprise to find such a good doctor! I’m so glad Dr. Farr was recommended to me.
in San Diego, CA |
It would be impossible for Dr. Farr to be any better. He is already perfect, as far as I’m concerned.
in San Jose, CA |
When I go to see Dr. Farr, he and his staff treat me like a friend, not like a patient.
in Los Angeles, CA |
A friend recommended me to Dr. Farr, and I’m glad he was able to take me on as a patient.
in CA |
I always have a good experience when I visit Dr. Farr, and I can’t say that about my other doctors.
in walnut, ca |
Dr. Farr shows you that he really cares about your health and that he cares about you as a person.
in san jose, ca |
As soon as I walked through the door, the woman at the desk greeted me and asked if there was anything she could do to help me. Definitely a shop where the customer comes first!
in phoenix, az |
Dr. Farr is a wonderful doctor who will actually take the time to listen to your complaints, and work with you to find a healthy solution instead of shoving pills down your throat like a lot of doctors. Great place!
Atlanta, GA |
Very impressed with the results I’ve seen since starting Pure Encapsulations Super CitriMax Plus. Of course supplements aren’t a singular solution, but combined with the exercise I’ve been doing lately, I’ve actually managed to lose weight!
in los angeles, ca |
Pure Encapsulations’ EPA/DHA with lemon has been just the supplement I’ve needed to keep my body going all through the day. Great stuff!
in Los Angeles, CA |
I’ve had digestive problems for as long as I can remember, which is why I started taking PE’s AC Formula II. Really an incredible product!
in Walnut, CA |
At 52, my health has become a huge priority for me. That’s why I take Pure Encapsulations Men’s Nutrients every day to make sure I’m giving my body what it needs.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I’ve been taking UltraNutrient for several months now, and I can honestly say that my energy levels have increased dramatically. This stuff is the real deal!
in Bakersfield, CA |
AWEFUL!!! Quite literally I have NEVER been treated so poorly by a Drs office. As a new patient I would have assumed they would want to check me out in some way. Instead I was basically told I need a specialist for every different issue I have. Lazy & Incompetent! They are more interested in giving out diet pills than caring for the truly ill. Don't go to this office!
in Springville, Ca |
Very incompetent. I would never see this Dr again and would not recommend to anyone.
in Bakersfield |
I absolutely love going to Dr. Farr. Amazing staff and amazing doctors. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
in Bakersfield, Ca |
Couldn't be more impressed for a first visit. I feel like my concerns were taken seriously and not minimized.
