I had a family emergency and wasn't able to see him and missed three consecutive appointments and he decided to drop me at 32 weeks. Honestly what upset me the most was he had me come in to the office, had me wait 40 mins and later his secretary came out and told me he could no longer see me, at which I tried to explain why I haven't been able to make it and she asked me to have a seat again to talk to the doctor, and came back out and said he said no! So unprofessional at 32 weeks REALLY!!!!!

Dr Ferrara treats the condition not the patient. He leans towards performing hysterectomies with no regards of any cons. I would NOT recommend him for the treatment of Fibroids and bleeding. He is very popular and well regarded within the medical community, however, he isn't the doctor for me. Please do your research regarding your condition and I best course of action for YOU, then check with your PCP, not what is convient for Dr. Ferrara.

I've been a patient of Dr. Ferrara for over 7 years now. He is a doctor that can make you feel at ease no matter what your diagnosis is. I've been able to get quick, urgent, appointments without a problem. I wouldn't switch!

I used to be a patient of dr Ferrara for many years. After about a year and half complaining about mentrual bleeding every single day, he just made it a point I was just "obese" and needed to lose weight. I switch doctors and a month later I was diagnosed with endometrial carcinoma. Lost all chance to have kids at the age of 27. He or his office don't care or treat there paitients with care or respect.

Poor judgement selecting staff. He had a very unprofecional dr in his practice. She was on call when I delivered and recommended a 9am C section. Completely unnecessary. I had a beautiful vaginal birth with emergency dr. Ferrara refused to go in saying he agreed with c section and was on his day off.

Dr. Ferrara is great and very trustworthy doctor. Doesn't rush and is always answering any questions you might have, however, the nursing staff is not so great. The past two times I have had an abnormal pap, I had to call them to find the results, they never called me. When calling back they would even start the conversation saying "I am returning your call". So when were you planning on calling to tell me I had an abnormal pap? Second, No response on email sent or left message for over a week.

Amazing...very informative. After having a previous bad experience he proved how marvelous Drs. can be. I am so grateful I was referred to him. I will never be afraid to go for a check up. The ambiance is also so relaxing.

I have been seeing Dr Ferrara for over 15 years and he is one of the nicest most caring doctors I've met.

Overal clean establishment, however reception staff is not informative and have a poor attitude. After waiting for over an hour in the waiting room, my wife and I approached the front desk to inquire if there was a delay.. To which we simply received a dirty look and a very dry yes. When we asked if it would be long, we were told we were next.. What exactly is the point of having an appointment? Dr Ferrara seemed knowledgeable, but not informative at all and poor communication skills.
