I had issues on our trip to FL for six weeks. I was fortunate enough to find Dr Ferrari and his staff. They were amazing and helped me get back on road to better health. Dr Ferrari is wonderful and knowledgeable. And his staff goes above and beyond to assist you and make you feel reassured.

dr ferrara did his job. but my was over billed $1000 because they changed me to high risk. Then lied to me about why the changed the bill. refused to return my calls. would not tell me why i was listed as high risk. I have no medical problems other than slightly high blood pressure. i was assured before the procedure that there would be no additional charges.

Had a hemoroidectomy and same left me with a large fissure. Had lots of pain and could barely walk without having a burning sensation. After two visits to his office all I heard was give it time. Year and a half later still no healing. Went to another surgeon was given Botox injection twice and problem resolved. Will never go back there.
