Foot Reviews

“Good experience pre-op and post-op. Really enjoyed, and thought was helpful, the emails that were sent often the first few weeks. This included the opportunity to reply to the email and on one occasion, to receive a reply.”

“I was delighted with the patience, professionalism, time, and outcome from my surgery on my Plantar Fasciitis. Dr. Eric Ferkel never rushed and always made you feel comfortable with every step from start to surgery. I’m quickly recovering due to his professionalism and no pain right after surgery. I haven’t met a Dr. like him! Thank you, Dr. Your Fantastic!”

Ankle Reviews

“Dr. Ferkel took a total body approach to my Achilles heel tendon repair, including surgery, supplements, and exercises. The result has been that I was able to transition to a walking boot after 5 weeks rather than the typical 8. He and the staff have been extremely responsive to questions and were patient, having to replace a cast that accidentally got wet. Dr. Ferkel also found a great physical therapist located near me. He was called in to substitute the night before the scheduled procedure, and he started at 5:30 PM on a Friday. His dedication and knowledge are truly appreciated. I lucked out in getting him.”
– Carl J.

Knee Reviews

“Dr. Ferkel was very informative. He explained the procedure and what was to follow.”
– Maritza B.
“Dr. Eric Ferkel is a blessing sent from heaven. About a year ago I had a terrible accident which tore my patellar tendon on my left leg, leaving me unable to walk or bend my leg. After visiting 4 different doctors and being turned down by them; because they did not know how to perform the surgery, I was referred to Dr. Ferkel and was finally told by him that he could perform the surgery and that he would take me in. Thanks to Dr. Ferkel, I went from having a 40% chance of walking again to fully walking, squatting, and bending my leg. I don’t know how to thank him enough for giving me my life, self-confidence, and the ability to walk again. I honestly recommend him - Dr. Ferkel is compassionate, confident and personal. Dr. Ferkel took the time to check up on me and see what I needed to get better.”
