Dr. Ferzli was a pleasure to deal with. I had gallbladder surgery and I was no once uncomfortable with this professional. Surgery was quick and done cleanly. If you need this surgery please consider Dr Ferzli.

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!!

Dr. Ferzli is a man of few words, but his hands are pure gold. Is it possible to feel comfortable about the need for upcoming surgery ? Yes it is, if Dr. Ferzli is your surgeon. Carl R. Ognibene

Great surgeon. He's a pioneer in laparoscopic surgery. Every doctor I speak to says he's the best and he has the numbers to prove it. Performed my sleeve gasectomy and I'm down over 120 pounds in 2 months. He gives you his cell phone number on your first visit and he's adamant that you call him for ANYTHING

My sister-in-law referred me to Dr. Ferzli here on Staten Island so I made an appointment and saw him within a few days re an inguinal hernia . What immediately stood out about Dr, Ferzli was his warm character and keen interest In hearing what I had to say. He spent an inordinate amount of time with me and explained everything. It’s been nearly a month now since the surgery and I feel like a million bucks. If you’re looking for a skilled surgeon who will go the extra mile, look no further!
