One of the best doctors I've ever worked with, in any field. He is an exceptional surgeon and person!

My husband had a serious cut in his hand. This was triaged by our local facility and my husband was sent to Dr. F. to take care of the wound properly. Very long, gruesome story made short...due to Dr. F. mis-managed care, and Dr. F. not taking the wound seriously (he did nothing!), caused weeks...more

I would recommend Dr. Fennell to my children. You can't get a stronger recommendation than that. I feel extremely comfortable with him, and assured in his prognosis and care. He's an outstanding doctor, and an even better human being.
