Considerate, respectful, knowledgeable...I could go on and on. Dr. Fetner looked at my chart, after I'd been given the run around for months, took me into immediate surgery and gave me my life back. I have never had such a good experience with a doctor, let alone a specialist who wasn't even initially "mine". If you get the chance to have him as your doctor, you won't be disappointed. He's incredible.

I was a patient of Dr. Fetner's two years ago. I have thrived since the surgery for removal of a tumor in my colon. I highly recommend Dr. Fetner.
