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. Fellin is an excellent care provider. He is always professional with the right amount of "regular" guy mixed in. He knows how to relate to me and always shows an interest in what I have to say. I feel confident he is concerned about me and my health. He's just a great doctor.

Was not senotice when talking about depression, a major disease I've struggled with for over 4 years and am just now tapering off SSRIs. Dismissed my concerns about my weight and just told me to try to eat fewer carbs. He did thoroughly discuss birth control which was good since I wanted to talk about that.

Took the time to answer my questions and help me with my concerns. Followed up via My chart message system with some abnormal lab results with advice to do further lab work. He did not state he ordered anything so I replied back with a message as to what the next steps were. He had gone a vacation but an associate replied back right away with next lab work and advice to follow up after he returns.

Dr. Samuel Fellin is awesome! He takes the time during a wellness check-up to cover all aspects of my health including any recommendations he may have regarding an upcoming procedure [...]. He is able to explain medical procedures in laymen terms and any concerns he may have regarding its long-term effects. I value Dr. Fellin's opinion and totally respect his medical judgment. My previous PCP retired last year and I took some time to find the right replacement. Dr. Fellin has exceeded all expectations and I am thankful that I was able to find him!

I have been seeing Dr Sam Fellin for 17 years because I like him alot, but the administrative staff especially the front desk are often very often rude and crude, it is rarely when I run across a friendly person. Also your blood lab is way under staffed to the degree there are no place to set down in the waiting area due to slow progress with just to technicians.

Has literally yelled at me on several occasions. referrals are a disaster. [...] On one occasion I was reading a list of questions or concerns my husband wrote me. He blew up at me and went off. Since then the office keeps having surprise interventions. Where they think they are offering me extra help but they never do. He won't even take time to look into and fully understand my diagnosis. I give him credit I go in quite often since I'm so complex. But each referral and each thing we do takes multiple appointments to happen. Their referral person seems like she's never referred before. [...] Dirable medical equipment he took so long messing up one I ended up paying it off. Just got approved for my first actual durable equipment which I'm shocked about. he took no steps to clarify my needs so it took so long for it to actually happen I'm happy that it did. I have to find my own referrals and provide them to him. My case worker has ignored repeat requests to sit down with an advocate and discuss all the confusion. Recently as in my last appt he yelled at me again. I asked him honestly after seeing records why he didn't follow up or if he noticed his pa saw my neuro and gait issues on appt number one. He immediately blew up. I was being accusatory it was a demeaning question and he refused to answer it. I left that appt another surprise intervention in tears. I keep asking if I'm too much to handle begging for honesty. My neuro symptoms I've done my best to control on my own. the hospital sent me home with instructions and equipment to get along with advising me to do physical and occupational therapy. I have memory loss I did not retain this my husband d was in the entire time taking care of me during over flow. we purchased all our equipment he made no efforts for any services. now I'm referred to speech therapy by another provider I had to find myself for my neurological problems. they are completely misunderstanding I need a referral and I have overload of information which makes me lose more memory and panic and then my worst symptoms kick in. I thought my previous dr was bad but even with all these amazing review I was so excited to get in... now I know they must be from healthy people. he shows no concern no empathy has his face in the computer the entire time. never actually examines me unless I ask. the caseworker wouldn't answer any questions during the last appt either when he blew up at me. I fear he will fire me. I just want someone to treat me like a living breathing human. he knows I'm incurable yet I get temporary parking passes and even the DMV is confused I asked for a letter for my taxes. he completely ignored me... I never got it. I didn't even get my pneumonia vaccine after asking again and again. I had to get it at rite aide. He shows no actual interest in my well being and I've been looking elsewhere o don't want to just jump from dr to dr. it's exhausting. nothing I've done even an advocate has helped one bit. I no longer know what to do... he's making me filled with more anxiety I wasn't depressed but now I am.

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
