Dr Fatti was a very caring and comforting surgeon. He explained in detail how the surgery would go, and what was involved in my recovery. He answered all my questions in detail At all my follow up appointments, he showed me all the xrays and explained how things were going. I love his personality, as well as his skilled surgeon skills.

I knew I had trigger finger.Only I figured I would be having surgery yet again.. Well I went in told him my issue and he said that they try cortisone shots these days instead of surgery first to see if it fixes the problem.. I was all in! He could have suggested anything st that point I had been suffering in horrible pain for over a month.. So he gave me the shot and said should be better in three days.. Well he was right! All fixed and he is AWESOME! LOVE HIM

I was the most fortunate to be referred to Dr. FATTI by my primary care physician . I found him to be most personable and his credentials most impressive. I am currently 81 years of age having worked in the medical field for 35 years have rarely seen a physician as caring as he. Having said that I must say that his staff is an asset to his practice . Everyone from the receptionists, Bill, and the nurses who put the cast on my arm where are most pleasant, friendly and most knowledgeable

He made me feel comfortable, knew what he was talking about. Explained things to me so I could understand. He did surgery on my husband a few years ago . So I had confidence in him. He even remembered my husband n the surgery he performed.

I feel very confident with Dr. Fatti. He operated on my ring trigger finger of right hand in 2013, which was a great success. He is kind and caring, and I would refer him to other patients if they were having hand problems. I am still having some soreness in my hand and middle finger, but it is much better after the cortisone shot!
