The office staff were attentive and friendly and the process of scheduling surgery was very easy. Dr Ferrara himself, is attentive and thorough, his dry sense of humor and caring attitude were just what I needed after receiving the dx of malignant melanoma.

Worst doctor I’ve ever seen or been to. I needed a second opinion it was so bad. He is rude, egotistical and hasn’t practiced oncology in decades. Please stay away

Dr. Ferrara is the kind of doctor we all wish still existed. He's a great listener. A great communicator. Highly skilled & caring! His office is calm but thorough. Through a terribly frightening experience, we were so grateful to have DrFerrara as our surgeon.
