When To Come In
Treatment of Hand Injuries
Excellent He is very kind, smart, caring. A great doctor and has a kind staff too.
Very thorough and took the time to answer all my questions.
Dr Favetto was very considerate during my visit. He wanted to try to every option before surgery. Which is a relief.
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.

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.
I had the carpal tunnel surgery 8-26 on my right hand with 3 finger tendon releases. Everything went smoothly, so about 10 weeks later I had the left hand done, and was happy with the outcome.
