He completed medical school at the University of Florence, Italy and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a thesis on the effects of smoking on healing of gastric ulcers in 1988.

My husband and I, needed a Colonoscopy. Healthgrades is a wonderful research tool! I selected Dr. Fedi; based on his educational-background and experience, which is impressive. Dr. Fedi, skillfully found and removed 2 pre-cancerous polyps for my husband, and one benign polyp for me. I made the right decision in choosing Dr. Fedi; he is confident, competent and caring. He is the 3 C's of medicine, and I found a rare diamond in the haystack! Colonoscopy, is a life-saving procedure! Thanks! Andrea

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Fedi for over 15 years. While some doctors might equal Dr. Fedi's professionalism, responsiveness and commitment to a patient's well being, we are sure none would exceed him. As a result of recent medical issue, Dr. Fedi's actions only serve to reinforce our opinion. He is an outstanding doctor.

Would recommend Dr. Fedi, he takes his time explaining things to you and does not make you feel rushed in any way. Very happy with Dr. Fedi.
in Moira, NY |
Found Dr. Fedi due to an emergency situation. What started as a bad afternoon turned out to be my luck day. Staff told me how lucky I was Dr. Fedi was treating me. Boy where they correct. After the procedure Dr. Fedi explained what he had found and assured me that he was going to treat the cause of my problem. He even called me himself at home to check up on me. Who does that? 6 months later his treatment has given me my life back. I can't thank this wonderful caring Dr. enough

Dr. Fedi is like a breath of fresh air! He is a wonderful doctor- always smiling and always makes me feel confident and comfortable. It's nice to know that there are still physicians in Clinton County that care about their patients no matter what type of insurance they may have. The women in his office are very friendly and helpful as well. I fell into a dilemma yesterday and went to the wrong place for my procedure and one of the girls gave me a ride! Def a five star establishment!

This is an outstanding physician. He takes his time with you. He listens to you. Follows up with you by phone or email. I have had Crohn's disease for 40 years and he is one of the best, if not the best, gastroenterologists I have seen.
