"He spent 10 minutes with me and then kicked me out. He was only focused on receiving my copay. "

The worst doctor I have ever seen in my life. Should have his medical license taken away.

Positive Comments

Not one positive comment.

Negative Comments

This was the worst doctor I have ever seen in my life. He did not care about my well being, he was only concerned about the copay. He rolled his eyes anytime I would say anything, and whenever I tried to get a word in he would cut me off. He made many inappropriate comments regarding my looks and many more. I left his office sobbing, and he had no problem with that.

"I didn't have to wait long during my first visit. However, he was very impersonal. I had additional questions about the visit and I felt like I was being rushed out of his office."

I was given a very strong presciption upon the first visit and when I needed to go back to him to reassess the dosage, I had to cancel my appointment because I didn't have the copay. Wow thought he could bill me.

I first visited Dr. Farkas in November because my present psychiatrist will be retiring the end of January 2015.He was very friendly and understanding, and genuinely concerned about my health and welfare. He is very knowledgable and a pleasure to speak with. I am looking forward to continuing treatment with him.

all he cares about is his $50 co pay.. He is arrogant,insincere, and doesn't listen. He failed in many,many areasprofessionally.

Negative Comments

WOULD NEVER EVER recommend him to anyonea flake

General Comments

He failed to monitor my TSH/T4/T3 as well as NEVER asked for a baseline Thyroid panel or tested for antibodies I spent 6weeks in bed with NO T4 at all and an extremely high TSH with unbelievably debilitating side effects i can't believe he failed to order these tests.. It's not just a little STRANGE,it's very very very strange DO NOT GO TO THIS doctor

This doctor did not have good manners and was somewhat arrogant during the sessions I had with him. He did spend a good amount of time with me however most of it was spent by him talking about his brother, his ex-wife and how his mother had a C-section delivery. He tried to share his experiences too much leaving me with little time to discuss my problems. I appreciated his ability to share however it was just way too much.
