How likely are you to recommend Dr. Farris?

(Select your rating)
Dr. Farris did not stare into his computer screen and check boxes to determine why I had a stinging pain in my eyes. He talked to me, read my notes thoroughly and completed a thorough range of tests. He explained clearly, not in a patronising or annoyed manner, but with courtesy and intelligence. He has the deep understanding of his subject which enables him to diagnose problems in simple and clear terms. I came away from my visit knowing what I had to do to ensure my speedy recovery.
