Patient Stories

  • I feel richly blessed that my Knee Pain is such a positive and successful experience; thanks, to the skills of Thomas Ferro, MD. Beginning with the initial office visit, when Dr. Ferro said I would run and play softball in 12 weeks after surgery, I felt totally confident and scheduled the surgery. Currently, I am 76 years young; playing softball on 3 teams; COED recreational, Age 50+ recreational, and Age 75+ Senior Softball Tournament Team. The KNEE function is great!

  • I started getting pain in my leg after losing 30 lbs. The pain finally got so bad that I could hardly walk. I heard about Dr. Ferro at a seminar at the hospital and decided it was time to get it checked. The very first time I went to Dr. Ferro's office his entire staff made me feel so comfortable. They were all knowledgeable, encouraging and friendly. Dr. Ferro made me feel so confident that he could help me and he did. I would highly recommend Dr. Ferro to anyone that has pain.

  • Dr. Ferro is the most personable doctor I've ever come across. He takes the time to really listen. He made me feel so comfortable that I felt like I could ask him anything. He recommended a ceramic hip replacement that was done in October of 2005. The result has been such a relief that I don't even remember the pain - it's been just incredible!

  • I was very pleased with the outcome of my surgery. Dr. Ferro has a great bed-side manner and caring attitude. I wouldn't hesitate to go back to him again. He and his staff are very professional and I like the attitude they have very much.
