Exceptional at what he does. Really helped put my son at ease before procedure. Will save his contact info if needed in future. Highly recommend!
He took his time with me to make sure I had a full understanding of my condition.
Impressive One of the best doctors I’ve ever been to. He gave me my diagnosis within minutes, but then proceeded to help me cope with the underlying causes of the issue. Very impressed.
Dr. Favetto is very knowledgeable about his area of expertise. He explained things very carefully and in a kind manner. I would recommend his services to anyone who is having trouble with any hand issue.
I recently took my daughter there to see Dr. Favetto, needless to say, his staff-all the way from registration, to nurses/assistants and the doctor himself, were very kind and respectful.
