Specialties

Dr. Reuben M Farris Jr has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Excellence in service

Dr. Farris is an extraordinary doctor who actually listens to you. He must be pretty good. I've been seeing him for well over 20 years now. Unlike other doctors I have seen, most don't really listen. Once you get past the first half sentence they are to busy punching it into the computer or their i-pad. They are no longer fully listening to you or watching your body language. Are your words contradicting what you are saying? Are you down playing what is actually wrong. Only by LISTENING and WATCHING YOU can a doctor correctly attempt, with your help, figure out exactly what your health problem is. Dr. Farris patiently listens until you are finished. He then asks questions based on what you have said. By watching your body language he is able to determine if perhaps you are downplaying your physical problems. Or are not telling him everything. A good doctor, like Dr. Farris, both listens and watches. He then helps you work out a plan to get you back to health. I highly recommend him to anyone and everyone.
