Fariha Farid was amazing! She was very informative of what was going on and the process moving forward. I feel so much better already. It is comforting to know that there are doctors like her that are passionate about what they do and that truly care about the patient.

really very caring

I cannot say enough good about Dr Farid. I have been having symptoms that have been almost unbearable at times for about the last 1 1/2 - 2 years and had sought the care of different doctors without significant improvement. During my initial visit with Dr Farid, she was able to diagnose what the problem was and start the treatment process towards my recovery. I am feeling SO much better than I have in a very long time and continue to improve every day! Not only is she an excellent physician, she is also very professional and personable. In my opinion, Dr Farid is an AMAZING Dr!!

dr Farid sets the positive example and many others at providence should be utilizing her and her team as a benchmark for how to treat customers

Dr. Farid is friendly, kind, and knowledgeable.

Dr. Farid is an OUTSTANDING provider in every way. She is obviously well informed about the most current and effective treatment options for my somewhat chronic issue. She is also wonderful with regard to patient interaction. I have the utmost confidence in her.

I've already recommended the doctor to 3 others

Dr Farid is a specialist, referred by my regular dr and I have no concerns about her knowledge and actions taken on my issue. She has been responsive to e-mails via the MyChart application [...]

She is amazing. Very easy to talk with and I appreciate her gentle, kind bedside manner.

The doctor inserted liquid then tubes down my nose without much explanation prior to doing it. Only after the liquid was inserted and she left the room did I realize it was to numb the area. Only while viewing the pictures did I realize the tubes were cameras. All of the care was necessary. I just wish all steps had been clearly explained to me before they happened so I could mentally prepare myself.

I have already recommended her to 4 people
