This physician is thorough and sharp. Complete confidence and a life-saver to many.
I am very impressed with his invaluable expertise and I felt very comfortable having him as my surgeon and specialist. Basically he rescued me from an emergency and dire situation. He saved my life a few weeks ago. He knows his field well, takes the time with his patient, explains procedures so it is easy to understand them. He is cordial and caring. I know I am in good hands under him.

This review is far overdue. My dad has a very complicated medical history. I sought a 2nd opinion from Dr. Fehmi as his current doctors at the time were suggesting no other treatments could be done and that hospice was the next step. My dad had been bleeding, what we thought was uncontrollably, for months. In a short 15 minute procedure, he stopped the bleeding that for months, others doctors couldn't. Long story short - my dad would not be alive right now had it not been for him. I am indebted.

Dr. Fehmi is a very caring and considerate Dr. He has been an integral partof my care team. He is sharp and he is proactive. I have a complicated medical history- however Dr. Fehmi is the the reason I am alive. I owe him my life his aggressive surveillance of ny condition has led to early catching of cancer- more than once. In addition- There is no one better at ERCP. He is the worlds best. Any patient would be luck to be in his care.

Very knowledgeable. Listens to the patient. Explains procedures very well. Many doctor friends got procedures done on themselves or family members by him. I found him spot on when it came to diagnosing myself. I see him once a year now to make sure all going well and he is very detailed every time. Really cares for him patients. I was lucky to get him but since establishing care with him, so many others have recommended him or have mentioned that I was lucky to have him as a physician.
