Dr. Faerber did shoulder surgery on my left shoulder 10 years ago. When my right one needed surgery I would only consider Dr. Faerber to do it. I found his office and made an appt. It's been 6 months sense surgery and I am well pleased. Many of my colleagues (firefighters) have used Dr Faerber and feel about him the same way I do.

I was originaly diagnosed with a unspecified medial meniscus tear and originaly precribe physical therapy . Dr. Faerber after a thorough examination concluded that the tear was much worse than the originaly thought and that surgery was my best option. Due to my pain level I was then speedily scheduled for surgery. Much to my relief . I received excelent post surgery care ,medical advice and less aggressive phyisical therapy .And now at the age of 63 am back to walking 30 plus miles a week.

Dr. Ferber and his staff took great care of me I had a shoulder injury at work and he didn't jump right into the open which I was grateful for I did 8 months of physical therapy after my shoulder was not healing properly we did do surgery and I'm back to about 80- 90%.

Thank you for a most awesome experience! It's unbelievable that I've gotten so far in 2 months. My left knee is amazingly wonderful. Thank you Dr. Faerber for your compassion, skills and loving care! Love You - Faith M. Davis

I highly recommend Dr Faerber. He has done two of my surgeries. I like the fact that he takes his time to go over the whole procedure and tells you exactly what?s going to happen. He doesn?t promise anything he can?t deliver. I?d recommend him and his staff highly and thank them for everything they?ve done for me.
