Again, this is the first time my son didn't cry during his appointment, so I'd say the Dr. did great!!

we drive from Mooresville just to see Dr. Ficenec. he always takes time with us and it never feels like he is in a hurry. He takes his time to listen and give answers to all concerns

*Dr. Ficenec is friendly, relatable, makes my child feel comfortable, and takes time to get to know his patients. We are glad he is with Novant. My son is a former patient of *Dr. Ficenec. Our BCBC coverage is for Novant only. We were thrilled to find out that he joined the practice.

We love Dr. Ficenec and have followed him fromprevious practices. this wasn't our first time at the new office. My 2 year old is NOT an easy patient, especially when sick, but Dr. Ficenec is so good with him. We continue to see Dr. Ficenec for several reasons - he's never rushed, answers all of my questions, is very thorough, my kids like him, and most importantly I trust his medical opinion. I know he is not going to prescribe me medication if my child doesn't need it, and consequently if he does tell me something is wrong I know to take it seriously. This is so hard to find in a doctor and I'm thankful to have Dr. Ficenec. Anyway, Dr. Ficenec gave us the option of doing a steroid shot versus oral steroids, which was great since my son will spit out the oral medication. he gave me a timeline on when symptoms should start to lessen, which was really helpful because had I not known it could take up to two hours to really kick in we would have probably gone to the ER (unnecessarily).
