I would highly recommend dr. Ferzli -I had a successful gallbladder surgery removed laparoscopically. Dr. Ferzli was the best. He is very personable and always available to answer your questions and concerns. There were no surprises and he explained everything before and after surgery.

Dr. Ferzli is a humble man. His office is decorated in a great amount of certifications and degrees, but don’t let that fool you. He is a nice guy. The women who work in his office are a bit to be desired but, who cares? Im not there for them. I’m on this journey for my health and family.

I had gallbladder removal surgery not two weeks postpartum - needless to say I was an emotional wreck between my baby just coming out of the NICU and having to deal with this surgery looming over me. Dr. Ferzli and his team were amazing! Supportive, kind and understanding. The surgery took 36 mins and the recovery time was minimal- I was up and walking the next day! Thank you to this doctor who made this horrible process simple and easy. He gave me his personal cellphone- above and beyond!

Had my gallbladder removed on August 10, 2018 by Dr. Ferzli. The procedure was quick and I was back home within 3 hours. Recovery went smoothly with no problems. Dr Ferzli is a great surgeon and he is very kind. I would highly recommend him for surgical procedures.

Went to dr ferzli a little over 2 years ago with pain in my side.After a cat scan he said I had very small polyps in my gallbladder and it had to come out.After recovery I was bleeding out of 2 incisions and wound up in emergency room for 10 hours. 2 years later I still have the pain in my side.After multiple testing I found out my gallbladder should have never come out that I have IBS. So now I have pain and have a problem digesting food. Dr ferzli your lucky your out of malpractice guidelines

I can't say enough about Dr. Ferzli and his staff. He was referred by Dr Aboujaoude (another excellent dr.) for my gallbladder. The consult was great from his office staff, nurse and Dr. Ferzli himself. A week prior to my scheduled surgery I was admitted to the hospital for 3 days for a gallbladder attack. Dr. Ferzli was in constant contact with me. He visited me in the hospital and answered whenever I called him. It's been a week since my surgery and I couldn't feel better. TY Dr. Ferzli

Dr. Ferzli is wonderful to me. From the beginning, to now, eight weeks after surgery, I feel wonderful and have not felt this well in years. He repaired my hiatal hernia, which I did not realize was that big a deal until Dr. Ferzli took the time to explain it to me with charts. I was still scared, but followed Dr. Ferzli's advice, as he put my organs back where they belong and left my lungs free to do their job. I am not suffering with asthma and able to breathe. What a relief.

Dr. Ferzli is by far the most skilled and knowledgeable surgeon I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I have had 2 procedures with him and both have been exceptional!! He is attentive and takes the time to answer all of your concerns with patience. His office staff is accommodating and always friendly. Surgery is never fun but when necessary it's reassuring to know your in competent hands!!
