Ratings for Dr. Jerome Farrell
When I was a child he put me on ritalin and 2 different antidepressants. He assumed that not only was a hyperactive but depressed as well. I was 9 when I first saw him he did not do any check up nor any assessments before he wrote the prescriptions. I also had to go for frequent blood tests. I looked like I had track marks on my arms. I hated him! I was, nor have I ever been, hyperactive and I have never been clinically depressed. I don't remember a whole lot between the ages of 9 and 13. I was 13 when I took myself off the meds, I was happier and I wasn't a zombie anymore! I was told months ago that he had lost his license to practice, I was glad. You can imagine my horror when I was told today (March 15, 2012) that he is still being allowed to practice medicine, and on children of all people! Seriously? He needs to have his license taken, and never given back!
Jerome should not be called a Doctor! He was extremely arrogant and rude from the moment he walked into the room. He was a fill in for my faboulous Doctor.He insisted that because I was overweight and had bad posture was the reason that I had a back injury. He told me to put my mattress on the floor to solve this problem. He didnt exmine my back nor did he ask any questions or offer any help. My posture was off because my back was in alot of pain! He suggested that I was in there for narcotics and not because I had injured my back. I have never been more offended in my life. I have never complained about anyone formally but I will be sure to do so with this poor excuse of a human!
He is the worst Dr ever. He is so rude and very ignorant. He doesn't listen to anything you have to say. He talks over you. He was standing in for my own Dr who was away and I was so angry when I left as he didn't address any concerns. I think he thought I was just wasting his time. When asking questions he wouldn't answer them. He is the most poor excuse for a Dr ever. I have recently been diagnosed with panic attacks and he made my condition worse just by being there. His advice on panic attacks was to breathe in a bag..what the hell is that. DO NOT EVER SEE THIS POOR EXCUSE FOR A DOCTOR..why the hell is he in this field of helping people.
Dr F has been my Dr since childhood, and delivered my child as well. He can be a bit moody or grumpy at times, and his accent can be hard to understand, but he has always been a good advocate when I needed a specialist or imaging (MRI/CT). He is a good Dr, and a good advocate for patient care. His sense of humour is a bit odd, but that works for me (not everyone).
i hafve had dr.farrell for 3 years now and i would not change a thing!! he has always made sure that my whole family is always taken care of when we arrive at the office. i can always get in the same day and he get down to the bottem of every thing right away. weither it be blood work or a scan he is a great doctor. anyone who does not think he is, they must not put there health first and he just get's annoyed with un healthy ppl who chose to be that way. is the only reason i could think any doctor would get annoyed
Dr. Farrell has been my doctor for 10 yrs for me and now my 2 children. My 3 yr old son loves him and Dr. Farrell is so good with him. I trust his opinion, advice, and he goes above and beyond if need be. He is always on time and will get you in at a moments notice. If you can't make it in, he'll talk to you over the phone. His bedside manner is straight forward and to the point and somewhat humourous...I dread the day he retires. THANKS DR. FARRELL.
