She and her staff are very kind and professional. She explained in further detail the extent of the injury, because the hospital I originally went to was a bit careless. She worked her schedule around for the next morning to fitin the surgery which was urgently required. Glad to have found her!

I was impressed with Dr. Kristy. She took the time to evaluate my issues and explained what was going on, how I need to proceed. I've been to other Orthopedic doctors but hadn't received as great care as with Dr. Kristy.

Doctor Farris is the best doctor. She takes time with you, discusses your problem in detail and tells you the pros and cons of your condition. That's why I keep coming back to her. She's experienced and very knowledgeable about shoulders, knees and hips.

Kristy was great! After thoroughly examining me she advised that I get an x-ray where I was able to walk across the street and get one within an hour. She then reviewed the film and advised a step by step processthat would help with my injury. I appreciated the fact that she recommended several things that I could do starting with the least invasive approach. The consultation visit was very informative.
