    How was your appointment with Dr. Fermelia?

    Nov 27, 2022
    My teenaged daughter ended up in the ER very sick after a botched surgery that had been done 2 weeks prior across the country. By the time we arrived she was near death & he saved her. She was hospitalized about a month, had several months of wound care & recovery. Not only did he save her life, he also saved her addt’l physical scarring. He took the extra time & put in effort because he truly CARES about his patients. Her condition was so complex, it was hard to understand. So he would sit down & go over it step by step, 100 x & was happy to do it. he did it every time, every step of the way. Not only that, but he had a mess to fix. Had it not been for his extensive experience?she wouldn’t be here. He is knowledgeable, relatable, compassionate & empathetic. to the degree that he’s using his own family to try to imagine & help us problem solve/make best decisions. He doesn’t make you feel bad if you don’t know something. Oneof the few in it for right reasons. I’m not easy to plz!
