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.

Great Bedside Skills

Dr. Ferrar took care of me while in the hospital with heart problems. He was compassionate, took time to answer my questions and make my entire family feel at ease during a very trying time. I would definitely recommend him.
