Mr Farquharson was an absolute gentleman, he was clear about what my symptoms meant and the available options open to me. He listened sympathetically to my concerns and answered all my questions with kindness and patience. I had every confidence in him and am really happy with the care I received.
* Skills as a surgeon * Approachable / friendly and reassuring * Precise/ Concise / spells it out in a professional yet empathetic manner * Following diagnosis, the manner and speed in which he consulted with me and operated was just simply excellent. When you are diagnosed with cancer your whole world comes crashing down and Dr Farquarson is the ideal doctor and man that you need at times like this. * The aftercare from him and his team is brilliant too
I have a great regard for Mr Farquharson,since my treatment began in December 15 he has reassured both myself and my wife and kept us fully informed every step of the way.After my initial operation he even took time to phone my wife and tell her how it had gone.I can say that I would have no problem in recommending him to any one, he has a wonderful bedside manner and puts you at ease at all times, and goes out of his way to explain everything in detail.
I believe that Mr Farquharson has saved my life following a very slow referral process during which the necessity of the operation he performed on me was doubted rather than encouraged by my local medical practice. I suggest that more time be taken within the NHS to ensure that experiences such as mine are properly aired, so saving the lives of others.
My father went into hospital in January 2016 with not much chance of survival but Mr Adam Farquarson did a miracle job in saving my father and he did a right Hemicolectomy as his cancer spread from his appendix that was taken out. He is a marvellous surgeon and he has a lovely personality and is very easy to talk to, You are lucky to have a person like him on your team because a year later my father is still with us.
