Dr. Ferrone is wonderful! My twelve year old son has been seeing him for several years. He is very patient and excellent with children. My son has a rare condition and it was Dr. Ferrone who brought it to our attention and suggested we have testing done. He is extremely knowledgeable and I'd highly recommend him!

Staff was very attentive and moved me briskly through the process with drops, pictures and then the exam with Dr. Ferrone. My visit was a follow-up on a follow-up and since Dr. Ferrone gave me good news, it is hard not to like him. I do wish they would turn off the TVs in the waiting area. Why do doctors' offices all think we need a TV - all were ignoring them while I was waiting.

Dr. Ferrone is a professional caregiver with an outstanding “bedside” manner. He clearly explains all processes and procedures and you never leave the appointment uninformed or disappointed. Staff workers are polite, efficient and very caring. In these COVID-19 times, the process of getting into the office and thoroughly examined was extremely efficient.
