Woodland Hills, CA |
Dr. Ferkel is the most honest, generous, kind, professional, doctor I have ever met. I can't say enough wonderful things about this man. I went to him for a second opinion and he told me exactly who I needed for my surgeries. It was if he could read my mind. I liked the surgeon I was seeing. He explained to me that he didn't have the experience I needed for my situation. And he wouldn't do the surgery either. If it wasn't for him I would probably be unable to walk. God bless this man.
