My daughter had the worst care at Henry Mayo Newhall Emergency room. They sent her home with a broken and dislocated ankle without any medication. She was touched by an angel when Dr Richard Ferkel was able to take her as a patient. He took care of the disaster that was Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital and with his great care, skill and incredible team, my daughter is back at 100 percent and teaching tap dancing. Thank you Dr. Ferkel. The most incredible guy ever. Great jerseys of stars he treated.

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.
