Dr. Ferenchak's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ferenchak "I'm a retired US trained Board Certified general and vascular surgeon unable to do major procedures because of physical limitations. I've practiced general, urgent and emergency medicine for over 15 years and consulted on medicolegal issues throughout the States and Territories for over 30 years."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Ferenchak "I believe it is necessary to understand and care for the entire person and this can be best achieved by listening to the patient at length and examining carefully taking all the time necessary and only then applying existing standards of care to the working diagnosis. It is important to assist patients in caring for themselves and their families and this may require a house call.  My Direct Primary Care practice strives to provide everything that patients value and insurance providers don't and I offer my experience and availability to each patient regardless of their ability to pay."
