What People Say About Dr. Wade Faerber, MD

Wade is supposed to be a surgeon but acts like a third rate primary care physician. I did all of my required tests a month of PT, MRI, and EMG TEST for this obvious labral tear. at each one of these tests they all told me “why are you here? You need to have it surgically repaired” and I’ve been a good patient FOR A YEAR... I injured my shoulder in FEBURARY 2017 and yet again he either thinks I’m faking or idk and I don’t care. If you like doctors who treat you like you’re a burden then go ahead.

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%.
