Dr. Lisa M Farhood has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I saw Dr Farhood a few weeks ago for the first time. She seemed like a nice person, office staff was kind, but when I tried to explain my history, she didn't seem interested in understanding that the symptoms I was explaining are not typical for me, and have been progressing. She seemed convinced from the start that my symptoms were normal for anyone, and were not connected in any way. I will not be returning to her office, and will be seeking a second opinion.
Doctor Farhood came highly recommended, and seems like a bright individual, but ultimately failed at the most basic duty as a doctor - helping patients get the care they need to get well. Problems include: staff changing or mis-scheduling appointments, referrals to specialists that never came, rushing through entire appointments, and perhaps most importantly, being impossible to reach and never returning phone calls (even after requesting follow-up).
