- Best Experience! - - F d, Y - www.vitals.com

I have just visited Dr Farnam for a 60 day revision after a laparoscopic robotic total hysterectomy he performed on me. As I was recounting how I had felt all along as well as now, I realized I have never felt better. I was suffering from postmenopausal effects with all sorts of gynecological ailments and although deciding on a hysterectomy meant taking time off work, which I really didn’t have, Dr Farnam went through every detail about the surgery, post-surgery and recuperation with clarity which gave me the confidence to schedule it shortly after. The procedure went as planned, recuperation was even shorter than I anticipated. I was able to go to the office 6 days after the procedure for short periods of time which increased daily. Practically back at work full time in about 2 weeks. I have found Dr Farnam to be not only extremely skilled in robotic and laparoscopic surgery but he was caring and interested in my wellbeing all along. He took steps to make my recuperation more comfortable and practically pain free. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with him. Today I am back to my normal routine and count only some small incisions on my belly that are practically unnoticeable. I amply recommend a robotic laparoscopic surgery with Dr Farnam if you are considering a gynecological related procedure http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Richard_Farnam/reviews#ixzz3hm6atFBq

- Gifted Doctor Who Cares About His Patients - Judy O - F d, Y - www.vitals.com

My husband and I were very blessed and grateful to find Dr. Farnam, and believe that the Lord led us to him. My family doctor confirmed our choice when she said that he is her GYN. He is an exceptionally brilliant doctor, one of the best in his field. He is caring, compassionate and made us feel comfortable about my upcoming robotic hysterectomy. I had a prolapsed uterus & needed my bladder lifted, plus a couple other procedures. He and his nurse performed some tests on my bladder which took quite some time ... he sat with us almost the entire time just talking. This is one of the things I love about him, he takes his time and treats you like you are his only patient. He took time to explain what to expect during and after surgery and answer any questions that we had ... occasionally he would pat or squeeze my arm to reassure me that all would be fine. During prep time on the morning of the surgery he and his team stood around my bed to go over any last minute questions or details ... he squeezed my arm to again reassure me that all would be well ... I really appreciated the time and care he gave me to help me feel confident in him and his team. His office staff is very caring and friendly also. The surgery was successful and 8 weeks later I feel strong and healthy! I had minimal pain due to the On-Q I was sent home with that dispensed medicine into the area for 5 days ... what a blessing! I would highly recommend him and have been doing so to all of my friends and family! Thank you Dr. Farnam! http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Richard_Farnam/reviews#ixzz3hm7Cg46q

- Total hysterectomy - Elaine Prensky - F d, Y - www.vitals.com

Not sure if this "review of surgery" is in the right place. I had a robotic total hysterectomy as an outpatient by Dr. Farnam on May 13, 2015. He started 'on time'. Recovery was 2 hrs. and when I woke up I felt great. I went home 4 hrs later and to be honest I did not feel like I had had surgery. Other than the slight discomfort I felt NO PAIN. To this day I have not felt pain. I am so pleased with Dr. Farnam and the surgery that I am ready to tell every woman to go have it done if they need it. At my post-visit he said I was 90% back to normal. http://www.vitals.com/doctors/Dr_Richard_Farnam/reviews#ixzz3hm7j8xDq
