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.

Professional Exceptional at what he does. Great bedside manner and really cares about the patient. Helped put my son at ease before procedure. Highly recommend. Would definitely use again, if needed.
Wonderful with my 6 year old with a broken elbow. Couldn't ask for a better doctor.
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.
