Care Philosophy

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.

Patient Comments (2)
in Jamestown, NY |
I think he has dementia, he is rude, and uncaring. He is constantly forgetting things, and is pushy.
in Syracuse, NY |
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++++++
