Specialties

Dr. Linda M Farkas has the following 3 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Colon & Rectal Surgery
  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Thank you Dr. Farkas for all that you did for me and my family!

I highly recommend Dr. Farkas for those who are suffering from colorectal cancer. I know having cancer is a scary moment to realize and Dr. Farkas really made my mother and my family feel at ease. After meeting with several doctors around the area, we felt the most confident after speaking with Dr. Farkas. She is doing exactly what doctors should be doing and in a very professional manner. The outcome of the surgery couldn't have been any better.

I want to thank Dr Linda Farkas for going out of her way to make me feel comfortable with my mothers surgery. Mom has been to several surgeons in N.C and has never felt a connection until Dr Farkas ! Dr Farkas I found is a leader in Hereditary cancer and was able to give everyone in the family a clear risk factor and plenty of informative information . Dr Farkas performed a robotic case that few surgeons can. Thanks ....It has been 4 months since her surgery and all is well.

Prepare to pay twice for even simple checkup visit!

Cancels appointments on same day, if I did that to her I would be charged.After third visit, saw Dr coming in the back door in a rush with hair all messy about 20 minutes after her first available appointment time (8am)...all her morning appoints had been waiting patiently in the office already for upwards of 30 minutes.Double bills insurance, 1 bill is for medical services (copay) the other is for outpatient clinic (deductible) therefore a simple 5 minute checkup will cost you twice.Doesn't dictate notes for your charts for weeks after your visit. How can you possibly remember the details of the 10 minutes you spent with me 2 weeks later?Staff returned call to pharmacist 8 days after initial contact.Find yourself a doctor that is more concerned with your health and less with her pocketbook.
