Dr. Fertig's practice needs to be CLOSED down. If enough patients make an effort, this kind of unprofessional staff would not survive.

Dr Fertig takes the time to ask you all that he needs to instead of processing you and pushing you out the door. The result? My insulin resistance and my cystic ovarian syndrome have been completely reversed and I have been free from meds for 10 years now. At times the wait was 3 or more hours. ...Read More
