Dr. F performed my surgery and I am Soo pleased. I had Lipo and a bbl. Not only was my doctor awesome but the staff as well! Dr. F made me feel so comfortable and made me look so natural. He listened to me about my concerns and addressed them. I would recommend him to anyone looking to get work done! That is how great he is!! Even when we ran into each other in the garage post op - he remembered me and that says a lot for a doctor who sees a lot of patients . I work in the medical field and have worked with plenty of doctor but Dr.F is something special, and I would And will go back to him !

Dr. Farrugia did my revision on chin lipo 3 weeks ago and I am SO HAPPY with my results and overall experience. The first doctor I went to at a different facility barely took any fat out. Not only that, but the entire experience was so painful that I was apprehensive to try this again. At Elite Body Sculpture, not only was it such an easy and pain free experience- I also didn’t have as much swelling and bruising afterwards like I did in my previous experience. I would recommend Dr. Farrugia to everyone and anyone, especially if you’re nervous and not so good with pain!

Dr. Farrugia was the best decision I made this year. I had consultations with a few other doctors at Elite however he left me feeling so at ease. He truly listened to what I wanted for MY body. If you are ever considering going to elite - go to Dr. Farrugia. He is the best!! I love my results at just 3 months post op

Last minute I was rescheduled for my AirSculpt appointment and ended up being put with Dr. Farrugia. I hadn’t had time to research him like my previous doctor but man was I pleasantly surprised! He was very consultative and calmed my nerves the second he walked in the room. He did not rush anything and reassured me of everything going on throughout the procedure. If I were to go to any surgeon, this is the type I would want! It was my first experience with any kind of plastic surgery and I really enjoyed being his patient. He even messaged me the night of my procedure checking in to make sure I was doing ok and made sure I knew I could contact him whenever if I had questions. Thank you Dr. Farrugia I will always remember this experience!

My mom was diagnosed with HER2+ breast cancer November of 2017 and obviously we were all scared and didn't know what to do. SAGE reccomended Dr. Farrugia and we would reccomend him to anyone we know. He explained everything with such detail, answered all of our questions and we never felt like we we were rushed or he didn't care.

Dr. Farrugia was extremely thorough in explaining the type of cancer I had, what the regimen would be going forward (surgery, chemo and radiation) and what could be expected after treatment. Answered all of my questions honestly and was very understanding of my nervousness about the whole process. He drew diagrams when it was difficult to understand some of medical terms. But best of all he put you at ease with his sense of humor and openness. Highly recommend this gentleman. Great doctor.

Dr. Farrugia, compassionate, took the time, very thorough with the explanations and expectations. Very grateful that he took the time to sketch, write down notes and go over all the procedures. He understood the anxiety associated with wanting to keep moving forward to a solution and subsequently tests and procedures were done as quickly as possible. An excellent surgeon, skilled and knowledgeable in conserving the breast and options. His staff is also trained with high standards.

On my first visit I was very nervous, of course. Dr. Farrugia explained all my options in a very thorough and easy to understand way. By the end of the appointment I was much more relaxed, and knew I was in very capable and kind hands. My brother drove me to the hospital and spoke to Dr. Farrugia after the surgery. He was very impressed and happy his kid sister had such a good doctor. I have had a couple follow up appointments and he, and everyone in his office are terrific.

To receive a breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 37 (or any age) is terrifying. I was recommended to Dr. Farrugia and could not be more pleased. Dr. Farrugia goes above and beyond for his patients. From my first appointment, Dr. Farrugia helped to ease my fears.. He has a WONDERFUL beside manner! He is caring and takes time to listen to his patients, as well as educate them. He is a skilled surgeon and I am very grateful for him! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Farrugia to anyone!

I would like to recommend Dr. Daniel GFarrugia as a reputable breast surgeon. From the first day I met him, he explained step by step all the procedures he was going to perform. His staff was so pleasant and helpful. He made numerous phone calls to me at the times I needed them. If the need arises again I certainly will contact him.

Doctor Farrugia is a very professional, knowledgeable, compassionate doctor. During my first appointment, I was so impressed how detailed my appointment was. He explained my condition with so much detail, and made me feel he had all the time in world to answer all my questions and explain to me care plan. Coming from a family history with no cancer at all, I had so many questions for him. He answered every one of them. He always has been very compassionate, encouraging, and caring.

Dr Daniel Farrugia is highly trained and skilled in his surgery techniques, and also so personable. He is fairly new to Centegra but is already very highly regarded. He did a lot of research in breast cancer at Mayo Clinic and University of Pittsburgh and won many awards for this. He answered all of my and my husband's questions and was very available by phone when I needed him. I cannot say enough good things about him.

My interaction with Dr. Farrugia was a truly uplifting experience especially given the difficult time I was having trying to cope with my new diagnosis. He put me at ease, took a long time explaining the diagnosis, discussing the surgery and ancillary management, and answering my many questions. I walked out of his clinic at the end of the visit knowing I was going to beat this disease and relieved I was in good hands.
