I came to Dr. Ferrara for a second opinion after receiving my first from a reputable doctor in Cleveland clinic, who suggested open ileostomy surgery. Dr. Ferrara listened to my history, understood my concerns, and offered a hopeful and less evasive surgical alternative to address my presenting case of Crohn’s disease. Dr. Ferrara is compassionate and professional in his approach, caring for his patients with a personal touch. In his care, he took the time to contact my gastroenterologist and open the lines of communication and collaborative treatment. Dr. Ferrara did not guarantee the possibility robotic surgery, given my history of prior surgeries and possible scar tissue. However, based on our conversation, I knew he would make every effort to proceed minimally. Ultimately, Dr. Ferrara completed the surgery robotically with an impressive healing outcome and significantly less pain than anything I had experienced in previously. I am grateful and fully endorse him!

I was diagnosed with a tumor in my colon in August. I was quite worry about my health, and hearing the word cancer is never good. After my first visit with Dr Ferrara I was completely assure that everything would go well, he is very competent, human, and explain very well. My surgery , in November , went perfectly well, I was out rom the OMC after 36 hours, I have completely recovered and again I thanks Dr Ferrara for all is done and for his care. All his team are A+, Thanks Again

I first saw Dr. Ferrara earlier this year (2021) after my original doctor moved. I was anxious to meet him and concerned about how the appointment would go. Dealing with Cancer, even in remission, is not a light matter. From the first introduction, masked as we were, I felt reassured by and comfortable with Dr Ferrara. His questions, recommendations and responses were direct and no-nonsense, but in a very professional and sensitive manner. I look forward to staying in remission, but if Mr situation changes I am confident in Dr Ferrara's skill to get me thru it.

Dr. Ferrara was my doctor for my colon surgeries/port placement and removal. He is a fantastic doctor with great credentials and was knowledgeable and caring. He took the time to explain the procedures in detail so we had a good understanding of what to expect. He was patient and answered all of our questions. We never felt rushed when we met with him. We highly recommend him. (The only improvement would be with his staff-they were very rude and unresponsive)

I’ve had several office visits and one surgery thus far with Dr. Ferrara. He has been very attentive and answered all my questions even between visits. He has a calm and professional way of sharing difficult findings, and is compassionate. The surgery was robotic and went very well.

I was admitted through the ER for diverticulitis and a colovesical fistula. The first surgeon to see me wanted to do the procedure open and with a colostomy for 6-8 months. I then saw Dr. Ferrara and he was confident he could do the procedure minimally invasive with the robot. He was very thorough in his explanation and very confident in the outcome. I was very at ease and comfortable with Dr. Ferrara. The surgery went very well and while he did need to do an ileostomy, I only had it for 6 weeks. He did the ileostomy reversal with great results. His follow-up and beside manner is very caring and he uses the most up to date surgical techniques. I would highly recommend Dr. Ferrara.

Dr. Ferrara was my husband’s doctor for his colon resection surgeries. He is a wonderful doctor, he is knowledgeable, kind and genuine. He took the time to explain the procedure in detail so we had a good understanding of what to expect. He was patient with us, answered all of our questions and addressed our concerns. We never felt rushed when we met with Dr. Ferrara. He also kept in contact with his Oncologist to ensure they were on the same page. We are truly grateful to him for always going above and beyond to ensure my husband had the best care throughout this strenuous journey. We would highly recommend him.

I went in the hospital with severe abdominal pain. While in the hospital I was diagnosed with critical diverticulitis that needed surgery. As I was on blood thinners and had to get off of them before surgery, I stayed in the hospital for a few days just to get my blood count ready for surgery. I asked to see two different surgeons to get opinions about this surgery. I also had time to look up credentials and Dr. Ferrara was the second doctor I saw. I chose him because of good reports from the nurses, credentials and his kindness and patience. Also, he is very up-to-date on the newest and best surgery practices. Someone from his group visited me every day and, also, Dr. Ferrara visited every day before and after surgery. He completed the surgery using the laproscopic method and kept my family and me informed before and after the surgery. I have made a complete recovery. I would highly recommend him.
