How likely are you to recommend Dr. Fernicola?

(Select your rating)
Dr Fernicola replaced both my shoulders and both knees, the first shoulder in 2008, both knees in 2010 and the last shoulder in 2013. At 81, i am most grateful for my excellent experience with him. Recoveries were easy, hospitals pleasant and comfortable, and he always gave me all the time I needed.
