Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Hypertension, diabetes mellitus, asthma, COPD, hyperlipidemia, acute respiratory infections.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I provide thorough and attentive primary medical care for chronic and ongoing medical issues, as well as acute episodic care.  I especially enjoy the diagnostic phase of a patient's medical care and working with the patient to determine the etiology of their symptoms to the extent that it’s possible.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I knew I wanted to use scientific knowledge and logic to serve people in need of care.  I also wanted to be a caring and attentive counselor to those with medical problems or in need of medical advice.

I wish every doctor I had to see put in even half the effort Dr. Fernicola does. He is the only doctor I like to see because all the others are just there to make money and don't care slightly about the patient. Dr. Fernicola actually likes to help people. He is a real doctor.

I have known Dr. Fernicola for many years basically since he started and have the upmost confidence and respect for him.
