I wish I could give him a zero. He doesn't deserve to be called a doctor. Instead of helping care for a patient he only cares if there is something in it for himself and he doesn't care about anyone but himself

Dr. Fenstermaker is a very kind and gentle doctor who takes the care of his patients seriously. He spent over 45 minutes explaining to me the procedure of the surgery along with what to expect post-op. He is thorough and does any necessary testing needed whether before or after surgery.
