Dr. Ferenchak is hands down, the best physician I have ever had the pleasure in seeing. He answers any and all questions you may have and offers his extensive expertise regarding any issue you have. He is compassionate and understanding-I only wish I found him sooner! If you are looking for a primary care physician, consider Dr. Ferenchak-a consummate professional who has decades of experience.

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++++++
