Specialties

  • 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.

Look no further than this doctor.

Dr. Farrar was referred to me by my pulmonologist and was able to 1. diagnose my heart problem, 2. take me off some medication I should not have been given, and 3. assembled a team to address other health issues. Within one week, I was able to leave the hospital with normal blood pressure, better oxygen breathing levels, several pounds lighter, and a new appreciation for life. His office staff is efficient, courteous, and responds to my phone messages promptly.
