I went to him as a last resort. I've lived with pain for so long it became normal. Dr. Fares is the only one that told me he'd fix me. Boy was he so right. I would recommend him over and over.

Diana Lynn Clymer-Sharp – Feb 18, 2021
After my second visit for the shot near my groin I wound up in the hospital with clots in my right leg from my femoral vein to my ankle. Hospitalized for 5 days and now on blood thinners for at least 6 months. Doctors at hospital said it was due to shot received. I tried to let the office know but the girl who answered the phone seemed unconcerned

Theresa Walls – Oct 16, 2020
I would not recommend to anyone. Difficult to get ahold of. Did not respond to messages I sent but sent me several about giving them a review. The doctor was literally walking away from me as I was trying to ask him questions. I felt like he rushed the appointment and just didn’t seem to care at all. I will never go back to him for anything.
