Dr. Ferris ordered the CT scan to help troubleshoot why my temporal arteries were inflamed. However he told me he is not a diagnostic doctor and does not know exactly how to treat my type of issue. Overall... very good Doctor!

Dr was polite but seemed rushed and very unconcerned about the appointment which was a referral from another specialist Dr. asked no back ground information, concerns etc. literally spend less than 5 minutes with me. spend more time with PA getting vitals. Dr summary is very confusing as much of it did not take place

Dr Farris is very personable, took as much time as needed with me, and made me feel at ease. He really listened to what I had to say. I would highly recommend him.
