Have been going to Dr. Ferrara for years. He is a good listener and coordinator of my cardiac health. Have experienced is excellence in the cath lab. Would recommend him to any patient in need of his specialty.
in St. Louis, Missouri |
I was working with Dr. Ferrara and all I can say is he's the most genuine and kindest man I have ever met. The way his patients spoke to me about him made me enjoy being around him much more. I never thought I'd be in the medical field but he is one of the main reasons I would go to med school and become a doctor just like himself.
