What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr Fahey was very patient and very clearly explained the procedure, a needle biopsy of the thyroid. I was very apprehensive but he calmed me down and I barely felt anything. His staff was very nice and his nurse practitioner, Erin, was very thorough and caring. My wife accompanied me for the visit and procedure and we both agreed that not only would we use him if surgery was necessary, but we would recommend him to anyone who needed a surgeon with his skills."
"Dr. Fahey is an exceptional doctor and person all around. Not only is he an excellent doctor but he genuinely cares and takes his time with you as he cares for his patients. An A+ surgeon with a great team behind him. If there are any reviews of a wait time it’s because he actually takes time with his patients, very thorough and caring. They don’t make medical gems like this that often anymore. Thank you for your healing and expertise Doc."
"Dr. Swistel not only saved my life but he also saved my sister's life, three times from breast cancer. He's not only a genius surgeon but one of the most genuine, caring human beings I know. He is so kind and thorough! had Dr. Swistel not been persistent to the point of having his secretary call me for a follow-up, I would not be here today to tell my story. What other physicians couldn't figure out, Dr. Swistel was able to diagnose that the lump in my breast was not breast cancer but Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Maria Benvenuti & Telmiza Benvenuti"
