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.
