Learn about our survey
It is hard for me to judge because I could not see the provider.
Dr. Farkus was very pleasant & accomplished what we sent out to take care of despite it had to be on a face time call.
The doctor while well versed in his profession seemed to wish he was somewhere else.
first visit can't really have opinion. everything went great.
