My experience was great.

Dr Farrell is excellent. I feel I am in very good hands. I do wish she was a little warmer. I sometimes feel that I pick up negative attitude about taking pain medication. I wish I felt some compassion for the number of years I have experienced significant pain without any real options to treat it. The medical assistant also seemed very cold. I had to work hard to try and get a smile from her.The desk staff, especially the gentleman at the desk, were friendly and welcoming.

I appreciate Dr Farrell's direct and practical approach. She explains options and provides information. In a cleat consistent manner. I don't feel rushed or uncomfortable.

Dr Farrell took time with me even though she was running late

  Oct 6, 2023
The doctor's office is short-staff as are many medical care facilities/offices. Because of this, my doctor had to room patients and take care of tasks normally performed by the MA. This situation was also the cause of the longer wait time to be seen.

Dr. Farrell is a superior physician: knowledgable, attentive, empathic, and professional. I have faith in her skill and kindness, and absolute trust in her care - even if/when I may not agree with an approach. My high opinion of Legacy is due in large part to her service.

The MA was very kind competent. Dr Farrell talked to me about my new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes. She was very kind and non-judgemental regarding another issue.

  Sep 22, 2023
Given the thinning ranks of primary care providers I would recommend this office, but the office not the provider seems to be getting less personal and more automated. Provider is more rushed by time constraints not of their making and it shows.

Dr Farrell is an excellent Doctor, had nothing but the best care from her. Unfortunately she has the new duties so I changed DRs some time Go. wish I never did that.

I have seen Dr. Farrell for many years, so she is familiar with my medical history. She always listens with care to my report of symptoms and concerns and responds to each with questions to clarify the issue, offering her recommendations including possible choices. She makes immediate referrals for visits to specialists and to laboratories for bloodwork and other necessary tests. I trust her entirely and am grateful for her care.

First off, I probably would not refer Dr farrell to anyone because I don't want her to be any busier than she already is. Yes, I have to wait when I have an appointment with her, I bring a book because I know I will receive that same attention when it is my appointment I do not expect your clerical or PAs to be auto trans and it would appear that they don't feel they need to be which is a relief. I have a lot of complicated health problems and they impact my life in a very significant way. Dr farrell pays attention has excellent referrals for me. There were several new people at the clinic on the day I visited, and they will clearly be great asset to the team.

Doctor Farrell has been my Primary Care Physician for the past 20 years. Doctor Farrell, is very thorough in going over test results, past/present health history and she listens to what the patient has to say. I would definitely recommend Doctor Farrell, to Family and Friends, but I know her caseload is quite full.

Actually Lori Farrell made my appointment. She knows my history and wanted me after a test before I left for a week. She is excellent doctor.

I have seen Dr. Farrell for many years. She is entirely well informed about all my health conditions and is always available to send a prescription to my pharmacy or to fit me in for an appointment, even if I need to be put on the waiting list.

  Jun 2, 2023
I really appreciate that. Dr. Farrell takes time with me. I can have all my questions ready and she will answer everything thoroughly best provider yet.

Dr. Farrell always spends whatever time is necessary for my appointment. I am certain she does that with everyone, therefore longer waiting time.

There is an MD in that office I worked with in the past who I believe should not be practicing medicine. Lori Farrell is an excellent PCP, however, and I trust her. Staff has always been helpful, friendly, and informed.
