Dr. Farber was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what had happened with my knee. I was in extreme pain and appreciated that he was able to see me the same day that I called. He has x-ray equipment is onsight and his office is on the first floor - both a plus when you are having mobility issues. His staff are friendly and efficient. I am happy I was able to find this type of docotor at the last minute.

The staff was polite, friendly and efficient. Dr.Farber was excellent. He was friendly and explained thigs clearly. He did not rush. He was interested in my reasons for coming to see him. Dr. Farber took time to explain my situation andmy options. He explained the X-rays that were taken and what would occur if I eventally decide on surgery. He did not pressure me to make a decision about surgery My questions were clearly answered. I now have enough information to make an informed decision.

I feel so lucky to have found Dr Farber. He came highly recommended from another orthopaedic surgeon, and it is clear why. He is thorough and efficient and never makes you feel like he is in a rush. He assesses theissue at hand and discusses his thoughts with you so you truly understand. Don't hesitate to make an appointment with him!

He was very professional and pleasant. The secretaries were very friendly and professional. Wait time was nothing and we LOVE using zocdoc for appointments/surprised to receive this survey, but think it's a GREAT idea. Thanks very much for the good service.
