He has always listened to me and addressed my concerns. I felt a knot on my neck and he ordered an mri and I am now in Texas and wish I still had him as my doctor.

The absolute best!

Dr. Ferraro sat down and took the time to address all my questions and concerns. He always provided me with an answer. When I called back to ask additional questions his nurse was so sweet and call me back within an hour of so. His staff is super friendly. I will definitely be keeping him as my Endocrinologist.

thyroid cancer

Getting an appointment took time. Dr Ferraro's exam was thorough but he seemed not to hear my issues. I was diagnosed with Thyroid Cancer and was told I would need to see a surgeon and have more tests. I had to call several times a couple weeks later to find out what was going on and was told they were busy and not to worry they would call me. In other words do not call back. I had another Dr's office set up the appointments for me the same day and it was another week before I heard anything from Dr. Ferraro's staff. Cancer regardless of its type is upsetting to most and having to wait to know what to expect can be hard. In closing the staff at this location are not friendly and do not seem to care about the patients. I stood up front to check in for over 10 minutes waiting for someone to take care of me. Then again upon check out. I iwll not be going back to this office.

No complaints

I have been going to Dr. Ferraro for a few years now, and have no complaints. The best patient outcome is with one who gets involved in their own care. The Doctor can't help if you don't make an effort to stick with your diet, exercise, and medication plan.
