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.

I've been a patient of Dr. Fellin's for over 20 years. [...] He doesn't inform me of follow up needs, or potential options for treatments. He likes to prescribe medication & leave it at that. I have several health issues at this time & I don't feel well taken are of at this time. I like Dr. Fellin as a person but I believe he's lacking in the health care department lately. I'm considering finding another primary care physician.

Dr. Fellin has always shown interest in my health. He does a great job listening and making logical recommendations based on my health. He is never judgmental but rather takes an advisory approach when making those suggestions. He is professional and compassionate at the same time.

I am very pleased with Dr. Fellin and he seems to care about his work. The time I requested immediate care and could not obtain it Dr. Fellin was on holiday and I was not able to get past whoever answered the phone to get help from another doctor resulting to me going to an immediate care facility to get help.

Dr. Fallin is the best doctor I have ever had. That's why I have him as my dr. for over 10 years now. He cares for his patients and listens to their concerns. He always explains things clearly. He makes having to got to a doctor and dealing with life long health problems, a little more plesent. I do recommend him and Providence to everyone I know and anyone I meet. It's not often that you come across a physician that truly cares!

I would have to say by far Dr. Fellin is the BEST doctor I have seen in the Providence system. Not only is Dr. Fellin observant,kind and knowledgeable, his CMA is too. I would admit that I am not the easiest patient to treat. In saying that,Dr. Fellin has always treated me with dignity and respect. I do feel very blessed to have such an excellent Doctor.

I really like the way Dr. Fellin listens to me. When I'm in the exam room, he treats me like I'm the only patient he has and doesn't seem like he is in a rush or on a time schedule to complete the exam. He listens and responds to everything that I have to say. I also like the print-out of the after visit - things for me to follow up on.

I had the appointment because of pain I am having [...] due to pulling the muscles. The nurse who waited on me prior to seeing the doctor seemed incredulous that I would take the doctor's time simply because of pain. I had the feeling that the nurse thought I should not bother the doctor for pain.
