Concise and convenient Quick appointment, good office interaction. Concise diagnosis & treatment options.
Dr. Favetto was quick yet thorough in explaining the fracture in my hand. I appreciated the explanation of the healing process since this is the first break I've ever had.
Dr Favetto examined my swollen hand and treated it immediately providing me with pain relief and increased function.

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.

You are the focus of his attention while he is in the room with you. He explains everything in detail, even using drawings where indicated.

Wonderful with my 6 year old with a broken elbow. Couldn't ask for a better doctor.
He operated on my husbands hand and was so great about communicating and making sure we felt comfortable. We really enjoyed working with him and would recommend him.
