Great Doctor! He is straight to the point and makes you feel comfortable. I had my first surgery ( knee surgery) with him; it went very well!

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in LA |

Dr. Ferkel took care of me after identifying that I had ruptured my Achilles. He and the SCOI staff were fantastic. Cannot day enough good things about his bedside manner and my experience before, during and after surgery. Got me into surgery immediately and post surgery his team was always great with casts, scheduling, etc. Never felt rushed when I was with him. It is healing incredibly well! Thanks Dr. Ferkel!

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in Simi Valley, CA |

Dr. Ferkel is by far the most knowledgeable and congenial doctor I have ever met. He engages you in a conversation, rather than talking down to you, as some doctors tend to do. He knows his stuff. He gives you options. He genuinely cares about his patients. If you or anyone in your family is in need of "Orthopedic Surgery," your search should end here.

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in Los Angeles, CA |

Dr Ferkel was super helpful and informative, gave great advice, and did excellent work on my foot. I was particularly impressed at the attention with which he followed my progress post-surgery. My only criticism is that wait times were often long at SCOI Van Nuys.

Dr. Ferkel he’s an excellent doctor. The staff of his office in Porter Ranch and Van Nuys are amazing. I had surgery on my ankle and believe it or not it feels like I never had any type of surgery because of the fact that if feels great. His staff his secretary are amazing with the appointments and they take well care of all the patients. So thank you to all and keep up the work. You’re all doing an amazing job.

Dr. Ferkel has been a pleasure to work with. This is my second ACL surgery (first on this knee), and the experience has been a night and day difference. He has been thorough through the entire process. Can't say enough good things about his care

Review of Dr. Ferkel

- in Burbank |

I found Dr. Erik Ferkel to be an excellent surgeon and physician. I came to him after two 2 failed foot surgeries with another physician and at no point did he promise I'd be as good as new. I now have a fused toe joint but I am out of pain for the first time in years and back to biking, hiking and yoga. As an aging athlete, I appreciated his realistic and yet empathetic approach to getting me back to my active lifestyle. I would recommend him without pause.

Dr Ferkel is the type of doctor anyone would be lucky to have operate on their broken ankle. He is very caring yet professional and precise. When you meet him you are immediately impressed with his ability to put you at ease even when you are in pain. His knowledge and ability to listen engenders trust. All your questions are answered with kindness and understanding. He is a good doctor.
