He is very good at looking at the problem and coming up with a good solution. This is the first time I feel that a doctor may have the answer to my shortness of breathe problem.

He was awesome. First doctor that gave me a possible answer to my problem. He listened and put the puzzle pieces together. Great sense of humor which I find calming in this type of situation. Wish he was going to be a permanent asset to Scott and White.

He was awesome! Made me feel super at ease and related to me as an authentic person and not in a "doctor" role. But very intelligent and informative as a doctor, as well as caring and considerate of my needs. Great communication!

Great experience during the appointment, this was the first visit with a new Cardiologst in 20 years. I was saddened to hear that Dr. McFarlan is retiring but I am sure he has earned it.

I have, and still am dealing with a very serious issue for weeks. I was able to talk to nurses and nurse practitioners, who spoke to the Doctor on my behalf. After 2 ED visits, an no improvement for weeksI wanted to see a doctor. I had to fight and almost threaten to get an appointment with a doctor. They finally gave me an appointment to see a doctor. I thank God, that Dr. McFarlane is the doctor I was able to see. He not only listened, he heard my concerns. He let me know that my concerns were not unreasonable. He made changes in meds and requested tests that could possibly be the reasons for the extreme issues I am having. He is following up very closely with me. I feel that he really cares and understands what I am going through.
