When I requested adding an A1C bloodwork test to my labs for my thyroid, somehow it was in place of my thyroid labs. Thank you for resolving this quickly, so I didn't have to wait too long after fasting. Just wanted to mention it to avoid this happening in the future. Thanks again! Great to see you, Dr. Fareau!
Dr. Fareau is an excellent physician! He always makes time to explain things to you, like your condition, test results, etc. Even if news is bad, he and his staff make sure you thoroughly understand things and what the next steps are.

Very polite. And friendly
He was very kind . And I understand everything he was talking about
Dr Fereau is an exceptional doctor. Dr Fareau took the time to explain everything very thoroughly and in terms I could understand. The visit was not rushed and Dr Fareau gave me options for my treatments and plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Dr Fareau's examination was very thorough and I definitely would recommend him to another person.

Dr Fareau is the kindest doctor that I have ever met. He actually looks you in the eye and listens while you are talking. He takes his time and I never feel rushed.
Very informative and caring
Dr Fareau is an amazing Dr with excellent bedside manner.
Dr. Fareau is an incredibly calculated, insightful physician who takes the time to understand his whole patient, and their lifestyle before recommending treatment/solutions. He's at the top of his field w/ research and cutting edge technology and his medical explanations prove it. PLEASE hire more support staff for him. He is so busy that communication with the clinic is often slow.
Absolutely loved Dr Fareau & the NP. They treated me like a human being rather than a subject. Compassionate, logical & genuinely cared for my well being. It was refreshing. Thank you again
Dr Fareau is a very accomplished physician. Sessions with him are like a teaching experience

He was wonderful, I felt comfortable and really cared for. Also, shout out to every single staff member there that I had contact with, what an extremely welcoming and caring experience I had when I was so scared they made me feel like this is the right place to be. Congratulations to froedtert for having the staff you have, Froedtert is lucky to have these employees, treat them with the upmost respect.
