Dr. Peter Ferrara, MD
As a Surgical Oncologist, I treat all solid tumor malignancies. My special interests include breast, melanoma and other skin cancers, soft tissue sarcomas, and colorectal cancers. I take pride in staying current with advances in chemotherapy/radiation therapy as those discussions often begin in my office. As a General Surgeon, I am skilled in current minimally invasive procedures including robotic surgery. I strive to provide highly professional and personalized care to my patients and their families. My office provides flexible scheduling for patient convenience and to minimize wait times for consultation and surgery. I have practiced in the valley for over 25 years.

in Cave Creek, AZ |
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.
in Peoria, AZ |
Dr. Ferrara is a "go the extra mile doctor" everyday people like us hope for. He stepped in to save the day for my brother. Office follow up efficient and personable.
in Scottsdale, AZ |
Dr. Ferrara is a highly skilled surgeon and such a friendly man. Most doctors have NO bedside manner, but not Dr Ferrara. When I was awaiting my surgery, he introduced himself to my husband - "Hi, I'm Pete and I'm here to take care of your wife". Post op care was a breeze too. It's so easy to talk to him!
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Ferrara is a very rare professional whom I trust to determine the future quality of my life. My office and hospital pre-surgery time with him was cheerful, patient, caring and like a good buddy. His skill, well, the outcome speaks for itself. The aftereffects of my serious hernia surgery only lasted a few days and now, two months later, it's like it never happened. Have utmost confidence.
Tempe, AZ |
