Ratings for Dr. Anthony J. Fava
Unprofessional!!! The nursing staff is wonderful but Dr. Fava needs to retired. He does not have the patience or knowledge base to be effective. I was a patient of his for almost two years. Yesterday I went in and waiting about an hour to see Dr. Fava, once he walked in my phone beeped and I looked down at it. Dr. Fava stood up and said that he would come back when I put my phone up. He then stormed out of the office and slammed the door behind him. I can understand him asking me to put my phone up but for him to storm out of the room and slam the door, that is completely unprofessional. I would not recommend Dr. Fava to anyone. This was not the first time he has been rude but it was surely the last time. I also filed a complaint against him with my insurance company. Hopefully they will drop him so another soldier or their family members will not be disrespected by Dr. Fava.
I went for an exam. I brought ALL my medical records, MRI's, CAT scans, X-Rays, reports from other "Real Doctors". I told him I have all records with me, he said he did not need to see them. My back is broken in 4 places. Unless he is Superman and has X-Ray vision, HOW could he do an examination? Truth, HE CAN NOT!! He had me lift my shirt up, looked and that was it. He never even reported the high blood pressure which was 180 over "something" (I do not remember the bottom number). This guy is rude, crude and would NEVER use him as a doctor. You would be better off with anyone walking down the street for help, at least they know their limitations. this was a real experience. I did not know people like this help a medical license. Beware and avoid at all costs.
Do not go to this doctor. I am a former patient as of today. The nurses are great but the doctor was a problem. My husband and I went for my regular check up and he was absolutely rude and disrespectful to the both of us! At one point he even yelled at us. He's was irresponsible, morally offensive, and flat out doesn't care. These ratings on this web page is the only defense we have to protect each other from poor quality care. I've never written a review/rating on anyone before today but the treatment he gave to us was so incredably rude and shocking I had to write. I hope you take this review very serioulsy and save yourself by going to a professional care giver who really CARES!!!He has no right to treat patients in a this manner when they are sick in the first place. I can only conclude that the ratings prior to this one was by his wife who is a secretary there.
