Sorry, I don't know of Dr Farraye. Bu.t there are several posters who are from Massachusetts. What Hospital is He/She associated with? I see someone at Beth Israel

Sorry I don't know him either. I go to MGH in Boston but after some recent bad news and decisions I need to make, I think I need to get a second opinion. Let me know if you hear anything about him. Thanks,

He comes very highly recommended from a few doctors I know in the Boston area. I have family there and I wouldn't hesitate to see him.
