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.
