As I said earlier he is one of the best doctors I've ever been to. Normally doctors are in and out of the office as quickly as possible with patients but Dr Farkas is not like that. He is empathetic and compassionate and thoughtful and analytical and I couldn't be any happier than I am.

I was being screened for a surgical release and Dr Farkas found out that I was having kidney issues through blood work. He researched my medications and realized that one of my medications was causing my kidney issues. He called me one evening on his own time and discussed with my about stopping the medicine and waiting a week and redoing blood work. A week later my kidney levels were better and I was able to be cleared for surgery! Not to mention I was a new patient to him at this time... I feel like he has went above and beyond from the time I have started seeing him. He's a really good Dr!

Dr. Farkas is new to my husband and myself. Our previous doctor, Dr. Evans, retired and we looked into several doctors and choice Dr. Farkas. He has always treated us with respect and never rushed us no matter how busy he has been. I really appreciate this habit from my doctors, I never mind waiting on a doctor as long as he or she doesn't rush my appointment, and this is the treatment we both receive from Dr Farkas.
