4 out of 5 stars

Good doctor seems a little too focused on numbers, tells me what to change & do, but I don't have opportunity to discuss. Maybe time constraints.

Will definitely transfer TO *Dr. Ferraro from my current cardiologist. She is such a POSITIVE change!

Very happy with my doctor

4 out of 5 stars

The provider is very skilled in her field but was very rushed and appeared stressed and frustrated with my questions. Perhaps related to running so far behind, but this was not my problem. I waited one hour and only see her 1 x per year. My concerns and seriousness of my heart issue may be very minor compared to other patients but we all should be treated with a calm approach as well as respect.

Long time patient. Very thorough. Excellent communications with My Chart.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Ferraro was awesome. She took her time to listen to my concerns and recommended what diagnosis to follow up. She was thorough, friendly and truly cares for her patients. I have had another Cardiologist a couple of years ago who wasn't even willing to order the simplest diagnosis to find what's wrong with my heart. What a day and night difference. I recommend Dr. Ferraro to everyone.
