I was experiencing increasing pain. When my primary care giver recommended I have my gall bladder out and that Dr. Favre was the best person for the job I was still hesitant. But oh, I am so glad I did. I feel so much better! Not only is the gall bladder pain gone (there were several marble-sized stones and scar tissue built up over the years), but my whole intestinal tract is much happier. Dr. Favre is wonderful and so easy to talk with; I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Favre and her team were a wonderful and pleasant surprise in my recent surgery. It was my first surgery and everything from the first office visit to the actual procedure and follow up was very well organized and in a word, "easy". I would definitely recommend Dr. Favre!

Dr. Favre is one of the best doctors we have ever met. I was diagnosed with breast cancer and Dr. Favre went into action. She is thorough, explains all information in a kind and empathetic way. In a world where patients are so frequently treated as a number, Dr. Favre took the time to treat Me as an individual. Today I am cancer free thanks to Dr. Favre. There are many good doctors but Dr. Favre is the best. I trust her with my life and the life of my loved ones.

I am a family physician who has a great deal of feedback from my patients about who does the best work. Dr. Favre is relatively young, yet already has an excellent reputation, and all of the outcomes reported to me have been superb. My personal experience reflected those of my patients. Dr. Favre is personable, takes time to answer questions, and did a terrific job. She prescribed an adequate supply of pain medicine post-op (a rarity among surgeons), but none was needed.

Dr. Favre was very pleasant and efficient. She excised two lipomas, one quite large. She did this quickly and effectively. She obviously does everything she needs to do but without wasting any time. I was very satisfied. She did a similar operation on my daughter a year ago with equally satisfying results.

Dr Favre operated on me for an inguinal hernia. I have experienced no pain or other complications from the operation. I am very thankful for Dr. Favre operating on me to relieve my pain and repair my hernia. I have complete faith in Dr. Favre.
