Ratings for Dr. Stephen Farrell
This man is brain dead. I actually do not believe he has the proper credentials and if he does then he did not deserve them. I cannot understand how he can look in a mirror because all he will see is someone that has done so much harm from his lack of knowledge in the field he claims to be a legitimate part of
Dr Farrell delt with my father until the day he died. He had many medical conditions and the good doctor delt with every one as well as perscribed the appropriate medication thathe would need. The wait times are long , but he always addressed each problem he had.
NOT a fan of this Dr. He was arrogant and frankly a bit rude. I number of years ago (I found ou taody) he misdiagnosed my mother "pre-menopausal" when she had a serious thyroid condition. She subsequently went to another Dr. who took one look at her protruding eyes and said "you have a thyroud condition dear". UGH!
i would like to say the wait time might be long but you do get to see him everyone should be glad that have a Doc there is many ppl that don't he always spoke well to me and helped me with a lot and is great with my son has helped him big time and i thank him for that always calls when he didn't see you in a wile and want to check in on things i like him i think he is great
I have seen Dr. Farrell twice at outpatients in NW. He is one of the worst communicators I've ever come across and intolerably flippant. From my experience, I can't imagine him ever being able to properly diagnose anyone. He certainly didn't help me at all. In fact, his sending me home untreated most certainly resulted in my having a more serious problem.
I have been seeing Doctor Farrell since he came here, (I saw the othr Docs in his place before that Murthy and Daniels) He is a good Doctor, the one thing I must say is he will refer you to a specialist when needed. The thing that most people do not realize is we are in charge of our own bodies, Docs are far too busy to do it all, we need to say "Well I think maybe I need an xray, etc" this is how it works so great for me ( I am currently in the care of great specialists thanks to Doc Farrell. And I am not sure why we would ever rate a Doctor on his speech pattern, it does not matter how much he says, but "WHAT" he says that is important!! I am happy to have him, (and Elaine too) I will agree that the wait times are ridiculious though, but I do not think that can be helped.
It is true that he at times lacks social skills and that his wait times are long, but he is the best doctor in New Waterford. Obviously he will not be liked by some, as is the case with all physicians, however he is extremely knowledgable despite what you may think. I personally would rather have a doctor who says little but has a solid understanding in his field. If you think that you are not getting anywhere with him simply ask to be refered to a specialist. He does not take offense to this request at all and will not hesitate to do so. Oh, and if I ever land in the ER facing a life or death situation I PRAY TO GOD that he is on call. There is nobody better in NW to have in an emergency situation than Dr. Farrell
