Empathetic. Great bedside manner. Staff is terrific. Calls returned in a timely manner. Just had surgery, looking good.
in Chatsworth, CA |
Honest and caring are my best words to describe the care I have received from Dr Ferkel. My surgery was not easy, yet he was there every step of the way and there are not enough words to thank him. LaTonya is great in her own way. She has her pulse on everything that is happening. Thank you both for everything.
in Northridge, CA |
Dr. Ferkel has been very professional, compassionate, and helpful throughout the entire process. After having seen a series of four different doctors (a GP, Radiologist, Podiatrist, and an a different Orthopedic Surgeon), Dr. Ferkel was the only one who correctly diagnosed my situation and came up with a treatment plan that made sense. The surgery went very well and now I am in the process of healing and looking forward to being able to walk, run, etc. without pain. I recommend him 100%.

Has a great "bedside" manner. Always felt in good hands with Dr Ferkel. Latonya was also a great help with all my other questions.

Great Doctor cares about the outcome of the case, focused on what is best for me and listens. Great bedside manner. Only Doctor who understood my case out of 7 Doctors over 12 years trying to get proper diagnosis and treatment plan. A real blessing!!
Los Angeles, CA |
Doctor Ferkel performed arthroscopic knee surgery on me for a torn meniscus. He was very congenial, professional, and extremely available to answer questions. I like his manner, and his team provided excellent support. I can't imagine going through this uncharted territory without such seamless support. Highly recommend.
in Glendale, CA |
I would recommend Dr. Ferkel, he has such a great bed side manner and seems to really care about his patients. His goal is to help you get back to where you were prior to your injury, which means a lot to me being a very active person. He stays in touch and follows up on my questions. Very Pleased.
