The first requires surgery; the second did not. In both instances, from the receptionist all the way up to the great doc himself, everyone was courteous, polite, professional, and sincerely understanding and helpful of/to my injury. As for Dr. Harrod—Fantastic! Most importantly, he’s competent. Second most important, he explains everything to the patient and allows ample time for questions.

Best hand doctor Dr. Favetto is prepared to handle the most complex of hand procedures and pays attention to the smallest details.

Best hand doctor Dr. Favetto is prepared to handle the most complex of hand procedures and pays attention to the smallest details. He is well respected by his medical peers who unanimously recommend him. He explains all procedures completely and leaves the decisions up to you. Sometimes you have to wait for your appointment because an emergency has arisen, but one must remember one's own emergency that brought one to his office in the first place, and it is well worth the wait.

She took a look at my x-rays and took a few additional ones and explained in detail what needed to be done. All the staff that I came into contact with were all friendly and professional. From check-in, physical therapy to check-out. I appreciate Tina, Dr. Vasiceks clinical assistant, who went above and beyond the call of duty helping get all the updated short term disability paperwork to my employers. Dr. Vasicek took great care of me!
