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.

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.

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.

It took 15-20 minutes to get checked-in to see Dr. Fellin, because there was only one receptionist. What's with that????

I found out recently that it is more than likely I have [...]. While the intended visit was for another matter, during our discussion it came up. I was crying during the visit and Dr. Fellin took the time to make sure I was okay before I left. He also suggested I see someone who can help me work through what I'm going through. He was very courteous and patient with me. I was very impressed with every professional person I came across at Scholls Ferry, from the receptionist, to the nurses, and the doctors. Thank you!

I needed a biometric test for insurance purposes and felt that he did not need to see me. It took his time way from others who needed him. I also was charged an office visit copay which was not necessary however to get what I needed the appointment clerk indicated that I had to see the doctor and pay the fee. I think a nurse or receptionist could have scheduled the blood draw with the needed test results indicated.

Overall positive experience. First visit in February 2014 was "new patient" visit. Latest visit was "wellness" visit and physical exam. Dr. Fellin wasn't familiar with my medical history (moved from Florida to Oregon in 2012) so some time was spent in discussing medical issues, etc.
