I saw Dr. Faris for years for my annual pap, and she was fine, though sometimes she did not do a breast exam as I thought was standard. When I began having a vaginal skin condition, her attitude towards me changed. She did not seem to care that I was suffering, and seemed to blame me for the problem. She patronized me with repeated suggestions of more lube during sex and offers to test me (a fourth time!) for chlamydia and gonorrhea which had already been ruled out. She ignored me when I explained that my skin was becoming spontaneously aggravated and splitting when I just walk around (not during sex), and often interrupted me when I was trying to describe the problem. I was treated with steroids that may have thinned my skin to worsen my condition, and prescribed strong anti-yeast medication even though by her own assessment there was no evidence of yeast overgrowth. I stopped seeing Dr. Faris and found a compassionate doctor who thoroughly and patiently evaluated me and listened to me until he figured out the problem was estrogen deficiency. Imagine walking around with itching and cracking labia for some 18 months, and how much better my life is now. I suffered needlessly due to Dr. Faris; her attitude made me more miserable when I was already suffering physically. Bottom line: mean and ineffective when I needed her most.

The best place to go for OB care! The staff is friendly, the doctors are approachable and the nursing staff is well organized. The draw blood on the spot, so you don't have to go off-site. A great heathcare group.
