I've disliked Doctor's in general. I felt an immediate trust and confidence with Doctor Joseph Fernicola within 10 minutes of the visit.

Care brought to a whole other level! I had bloodwork drawn around 4:30pm yesterday at the Dr's office. It's 10:15am the next day and Ihave ALREADY received a phone call from the nurse with the results and the data is readilyviewable for me on my online profile. This doctor and office are exceptional.

As a first time patient, the staff and the doctor made me feel like I was already an established patient. The staff was courteous, professional and friendly. The nurse, Kat was great to deal with, being a new patient, she mademe feel welcome and very much at ease. Doctor Fernicola was thorough in his check-up and professional all the way through. He made me feel at ease right away and definitely showed concern in the management of my condition and medication. Would definitely recommend him to my associates.

Dr. Fernicola is an excellent doctor. He listens to and answers your questions, is very thorough in his examinations, is friendly and gives his patients confidence and encouragement, especially when you are sick. He also considers info onrecord from other doctors in his assessments. Have been going to him for many years and will continue to do so. The office is very efficient and appointment times are kept with a possible wait of 5 minutes if that. Gerard O.

Dr Fernicola was very professional. He sat with me and discussed my healthcare to date, my family history and any current concerns. He performed a concise medical exam and has a lab on site.

Today was my 3-4th visit and each time has been perfect. I walk in the door, check in with reception, and don't even sit down - the nurse is already waiting by the door to take me in for vitals andwithin 5 minutes the doctor arrives. I've never seen an office so efficient in my life. The office is large, modern and clean with state of the art medical equipment. I love that they can run bloodwork on site and call back asap. Even better is that I can view the results at any time on their website. Dr. Fernicola is fantastic, he listens and thinks outside the box and my husband and I feel extremely confident in his care.

Wait time was long I waited over 20 minutes sitting in the exam room, AFTER the PCA came and did vitals and history. Doctor was nice and did his job, but seemed very rushed. I understand he has other patients, butfocus on one at a time. Maybe it was just the Monday rush. Nice doctor though.
