I went to see Dr. Faro for a second opinion and fell in love. She spent a lot of time to explain the complexity of what I needed. I wanted to schedule my surgery immediately but, she wanted me to go home and process the entire process. I transferred my care to her & haven't looked back.

I was very fortunate to have Dr Fero handling my surgery. She explained thoroughly what would be done to repair my ankle in surgery. I was so confident after first meeting her I had the right surgeon.

I don’t normally do this but my first experience with Dr Frances Faro was so pleasant and professional that I was impelled to review her. The office was easy to get to, clean and staff friendly. Dr faro was upfront with her findings of my visit and answered all the questions I had in a manner that I could understand. She even called me on a Sunday to discuss the results of a further study while giving me a number to call her with further questions. So far I highly recommend at this time.

Negligence. Too cocky, hurried, rushed diagnosis leading to a complex surgery she, and therefore I, was not expecting. Follow up care plan for p.t. and expectations were not adjusted accordingly. Emer. calls not returned. I asked, but she didn’t speak with me day of surgery or appts. after, until I forced at 8 week appt. She was sullen, angry and childish, with no suggestions for my lack of progress. 12 weeks, I force again, she finally explains surgery. PT order did not reflect. 6 mos, 0 better

I only met the dr once and she said I had to have holes drilled into my bone to bring it back to life(but come to find out this is only a option at beginning of AVN and mine was not the beginning), so I underwent a unneeded surgery which caused me more pain and am still in a lot of pain since surgery. Which also caused my ankle to roll and I have to wear 150.00 shoes with a brace made to help my rolling ankle. She also told me I had to lose lbs before she would do my ankle replacement., dont go

I saw Dr. Faro to get a 2nd opinion on my Achilles injury. She is very smart, practical and not willing to jump into surgery as a first option. I liked her conservative approach. When all else did not work (boot, acupuncture, PT), I had repair surgery. She was excellent. Her level of skill, expertise, care and concern was amazing, as was the follow up care I received.
