    How was your appointment with Dr. Farma?

    Jan 29, 2023
    I was referred to Dr Farma in April 2022 with a diagnosis of Liposarcoma. During the initial visit, Dr Farma and his staff reviewed the procedure and possible outcomes of the surgery. Surgery was performed in September 2022 after radiation treatment of 25 rounds. The surgery was successful and the kidney was also removed. So far, scans have been clean and hopefully will continue that way. Dr Farma and his staff, were kind, considerate, informative and comforting. I would highly recommend Dr Farma to anyone who may be in my situation.
