Horrible doctor with a very bad bedside manner. After he performs the surgery, you will never see him again and he goes against his word.

I found Dr. Felix and his staff to be very helpful and professional in their diagnosis and treatment of my lower back conditions. The care given to me before , during and after my surgery was excellent. I would recommend Dr. Felix and his P.A. Mark to anyone needing back surgery.

Dr. Felix saved my life. When Dr. Felix first saw me, I was bedridden from a herniated l5-s1 disc. He was able to schedule and complete my surgery within 2 weeks of accepting me as a new patient. His assistant Marc Waters answered all my questions during the recovery phase. I highly recommend...more
