Dr. Ferzli is a humble man. His office is decorated in a great amount of certifications and degrees, but don’t let that fool you. He is a nice guy. The women who work in his office are a bit to be desired but, who cares? Im not there for them. I’m on this journey for my health and family.

I had chronic wrist pain, saw him in Bone & Joint clinic, he ordered the appropriate studies and confirmed the diagnosis. He then gave the appropriate plan how to recover. He cares and spends time with you as if you’re his only patient that day. 5 stars!
