Dr Favetto examined my swollen hand and treated it immediately providing me with pain relief and increased function.
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.
Dr Favetto was very considerate during my visit. He wanted to try to every option before surgery. Which is a relief.
My daughter had a broken arm and he explained everything thoroughly about surgery and healing, and the surgeries were a success
Great! I was in a great deal of pain. The office got me in quickly. My wrist was pinned, plated and well done. Thank you for a delightful 5 star experience.
Very thorough and took the time to answer all my questions.
