Biography

Samuel Fellin, D.O., emphasizes prevention in his practice and encourages patients to participate in their own care and health. “I feel my main role is as an educator, to teach patients about preventive measures and, when they’re sick, to educate them about the importance of taking medications as prescribed and other ways they can contribute to the healing process,” he says. “I enjoy being able to serve as a positive force in people’s lives.”

Dr. Fellin is a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, Wash. He earned his D.O. at the College of Osteopathic Medicine of Pacific in Pomona, Calif., and completed his internal medicine residency at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center.

In his free time, Dr. Fellin enjoys outdoor activities, including running, hiking, camping and gardening.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.

Twenty minutes after my scheduled appt. time was called into exam room. Girl took vitals and then I waited for 40 minutes with no one explaining why the wait until I opened the door and spoke to the girls at the desk. Then the doctor came within two minutes. He spoke to me briefly and sent me up to the lab for blood tests. I have as yet to get the results of them.

normally when I see this provider, I get the typical 20 minute discussion while he staring at his computer. It doesn't feel very personal and I'm not sure he really understands anything that's going on with the woman of 49. This last visit however was much better. He spent almost an hour with me and we talked about many things. But that has been the exception. A great exception, but the exception none the less

I went in with an expectation of having a physical exam, yet Dr. Fellin did not perform several of the normal procedures I would expect to have done at a physical. He also did not have any of my blood drawn for those normal yearly tests either. So I'm concerned that the status of my health is currently being based off of a guess rather than proven tests.

Since Dr. [...] retired, I was forced to "shop" for a new doctor. I made an appointment with Dr. Fellin to see if this would be a good fit for me. Dr. Fellin is very easy going and easy to talk to. He is not judgmental or condescending when we are discussing my conditions. This is my first priority in choosing a provider. I make it very clear up front that I am not a child and I don't accept being spoken to as one. Dr. Fellin understands this, so I am at ease with him and I know I can safely discuss anything with him.

03/28/2016
Dr. Fellin is a terrific doctor. He listened to my concerns about Allergies and other stuff. I am very comfortable and at ease when I go to see him. My mom highly recommended him to me. I liked him so much that I told my husband about him - and he is now my husbands doctor too.
