Best Family Doctor I have had the pleasure to see. He literally on my first visit spent two hours w me going over all the things my last doc never did. I’m very thankful I found this doctor cause he’s very understanding and does not judge and is very thorough. He even draws blood work right there in his office and that’s very convenient. Also he keeps in touch w you by phone, send a txt and he gets right back to you. Recently I asked about my blood work results that didn’t all come right in . He was out of state visiting family and still responded to my txt and offered to call the lab to get results. Also I’m going thru a nasty divorce and to help me cope he gave me 3 books on this topic to read and they were his personal books!!!!! Again can’t express enough about what a truly good doc he is and the comfort of the visits at his office at his home. Plus his office is not that hard to find when you go for your first appointment. ????????

Dr. Ferenchak is an exceptional doctor. He spent 20 minutes going over my test results and reassured me that everything would be all right. I am grateful for his level of caring and compassion, and I trust his judgment and expertise. He truly wants what is best for his patients, and I am blessed that he is my doctor.

Dr Ferenchak is the definition of Professionalism. He is kind, listened to me while I explained how I was feeling, he quickly diagnosed me with hypertension and was able to start me on medication. I am so thankful to have found such an upstanding doctor in today's world of quick appointments and snobby office workers he is truly a breath of fresh air. Tammy McInnes.

Dr. Ferenchak was through in his examination. He explained clearly the diagnosis and treatment. He took the time to answers all my questions. One of best points I can make is he takes his time to listen and answer my questions. I was able to see Dr. Ferenchak the day after I spoke to him personally on the phone. He was courteous and polite. He want to follow up in a week. The appointments were easy to make and convenient.

I think he has dementia, he is rude, and uncaring. He is constantly forgetting things, and is pushy.

Dr. Ferenchak is one of a kind. Are you used to being rushed out of the office after a 5 minute meeting with the Dr, after waiting for an hour in the waiting room? That's the opposite of Dr. Ferenchak. He routinely spends at least an hour going over all my questions and concerns. He has been the only Dr. that I truly felt cared about my well-being. He is extremely easy to access. Dr. Ferenchak is accessible 24-7-365. I couldn't recommend him enough!!!!! A++++++
