Dr. Farber is on your side. For me, after a few visits about knee pain, I needed a Kellgren-Lawrence score for clinical trial acceptance. Somehow, that request info didn't get to him, but upon meeting he agreed to research and getme the scores in a few days. Total class act.

Office staff leaves a bit to be desired. Coming in on crutches and this being an orthopedist office, you would have thought that they would have been more mindful about calling the patient up to the window multiple times after being told they could sit back down.

Everyone in the office was polite and professional. I just wish the wait time wasn’t so long. I arrived early but waited 25 minutes in the wait area and then 15 minutes in the exam room. Other than that, the visitwas as pleasant as can be expected: clean office, smiles from everyone.

Dr. Farber was a great find on ZocDoc when I needed quick consultation and x-ray. Provided options and was not pushy towards either. Had early AM appointment so wait was quick and staff was friendly!

He was candid and quick. I told him it would be really unlikely for me to act upon a physical therapy recommendation and he respectfully took that into account.
