Dr. Ferrari has performed several surgeries for me, two on my knee and most recently my shoulder. I was amazed at how quick my recovery was and the immediate relief I received from the surgery.

Dr. Ferrari performed surgery on my right knee for a meniscus tear in March, 2004! He told me I'd be walking the next day and I did. Nice Doctor and He made this experience very nice considering what pain I was dealing with in my knee.

Dr. Ferrari was personable and professional. He treated me with respect and took his time in explaining exercises that would help my symptoms. He was thorough in his evaluation and even though my symptoms and condition was not serious, he took it seriously. I felt comfortable and confident in his conclusion and recommendation and would recommend him to friends and family.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ferrari's for many years now. He has performed 3 knee related surgeries on me to keep from having a replacement in my younger years. I have been very happy with his solutions to the issues I have. He has recommended physical therapy and tried cortisone injections with no relief to the issue. I have bone on bone issues now. I feel that Dr. Ferrari has been conservative in his suggestions and we are just now talking about patella replacement. Very happy with him!

Appointment was easy to make. Surgery on rotator cuff. No pain experienced at all until physical therapy. While surgery was not completely successful that probably was because of the large tear and the fact that I am 79 years old.

Only time will tell, but I am delighted with the progress since my surgery. Range of motion is much better at this stage than I had anticipated.

I only put one star, because I couldn't give a lower grade. I went to Dr Ferrari foir knee pain, and he had his people x ray my knee... I was having obvious ligament pain, and they xrayed my knee. He spent 2 minutes in the room afterwards telling me that my knee was bone to bone and nothing but a knee replacement could help. No micro-fracture, no drugs, not therapy... He added that since I was still young and the procedure would only last 20 years, that I should wait... Worse Dr ever.
