07/11/10 5 4 5 5 I ended up in hospital last summer and Dr. Farina was on my treatment team. He was very personable and kind. I also saw his students and they were equally as knowlegable and empathetic as he was. He must teach his students proper bedside manner! While it was a very stressful time for my family and me, it helped to know that my care was being handled by such qualified physicians. I saw him in his clinic after discharge and once again I was impressed by the care I received!  Respond

04/06/07 3 5 5 I just recently seen Dr. Farina and I found him to be very knowledgable, caring and understanding. The fact that i had a little of a wait was not important. The fact that he seen me in his clinic and i was the only person he was seeing that day because he was doing procedures all day, showed me that he really cares about his patients. He made sure that all questions I had were answered and I felt good when I left,knowing as much about my condition as I could. I would definitly recommend him to people.
