I consider myself fortunate having been referred to him and would recommend him to anyone experiencing issues within his field of expertice.||Respond|

He took his time and asked questions about whatever made a difference to me. Very happy and feel that he will not stop until I have some relief from my symptoms.||Respond|

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|

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.

Had to call consinstantly to see when my next apt would be or when treatments would take place. He went on a LOA seen another doctor replacing him and had to have surgery right away.||Respond|
