Dr. William J. Farr Sr., MD says

It seems that most of the bad reviews are from patients that did not get the narcotics that they wanted or were thrown out of our office for non payment or for being violent.

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.
