My son was treated by him in Emergency room at local hospital for ruptured appendix. I owe him for saving my son from severely ruptured appendix! Son might not be here today without this excellent surgeon.

Dr. Ferante has a beautiful bed side manner . When you are sick and scared he stays with you and talks to you till you are ok . Haven't met a doctor like him before . I have had surgery with him three times and wish I had known about him before my first surgery that was in Johnson city.
