I began working with an orthopedic spine surgeon part-time while in Colorado Springs. I found it to be very interesting and challenging at the same time, not only in the clinic, but also assisting in the operating room. That interest gradually evolved into my dedicated spine practice, which I really enjoy. Every patient I see gets 100% of my attention, to answer all their questions and develop a treatment plan for each one, so that each feels valued and heard during their appointment. Seeing my patients improve is the best part of my job.

    I liked the video visit and the Dr. Farris listened to my questions and asked me questions. An MRI has been requested and I will follow up.

    I have had some scary things happening and Dr. Farris listened to my story. He went over different treatment options, saying we’d test each one to see which worked the best. I got a steroid injection to try and ease my pain. I have a follow up scheduled.He was funny. My appointment with Dr. Farris went well.
