I love Dr. Felix and Jeff Pully. Dr Felix could was amazing and I am so happy with my results. He fused my back just a few weeks ago and I am already more active than I had been for years. Dr. Felix explained things very clearly and Jeff was helpful throughout the process. I would give 6 stars if that was allowed.

I had surgery from a back doctor in Ogden and woke up feeling worse. That doctor told me nothing was wrong and sent me away. I then went to Dr. Felix and he was able to go in and fix the problem. The first doctor left bone fragments pushing on my nerve. I'm so glad Dr. Felix found and fixed the problem. I wish I would have seen him first.

Had both neck and back done by Dr. Felix. My neck surgery went really good and I was able to feel in both hands again. My back surgery went even better and have not had pain for months. If I could give him more than 5 stars I would.

I was sent to Dr. Felix from the emergency room because the pain was so bad. I had struggled with leg pains for some time that recently got a lot worse. I had x-rays and a MRI done and after trying a couple things that didn't take the pain all the way away we set up surgery. He answered all my questions and surgery went great. Super happy!

My neck had been bothering for several months and everything I tried seemed to make it worse. I started getting pain so bad down my right arm I would barely stand it. I was recommended to Dr. Felix from a nurse from the hospital and was able to get in and see him quickly. He pin pointed my issue and we scheduled surgery. I am so glad I did. I am back golfing and riding my bike regularly.

My mom could not walk more than a block because of the pain her back and legs. Dr. Felix operated and now she has a new life. We could not be more happy with the care from him and his staff.

Best doctor around. I have seen 2 other surgeons for my back that I did not feel comfortable with. After my appointment with Dr. Felix I felt at peace finally. I had him fuse the lower 2 vertebra in my back and and super happy with the results. He also comes highly recommended by several of my other friends. Check him out!

I had pain for months and was treated by another doctor for a wrong diagnosis. Dr Felix diagnosed the problem, quickly treated it and I am very grateful. Excellent, caring doctor.

Great Doctor. I loved my experience with Dr. Felix. His P.A. Jeff was very helpful as well. Neck surgery could not have gone better. I really didn't want to have surgery and tried EVERYTHING to try and treat my pain. I either had to live in misery or have surgery. I'm so glad I did and never looked back. If I could give Dr. Felix 10 stars I would.

Could not be happier with my surgery. I am a totally different person. I have referred several of my friends/family member to him because I was so pleased. If you are considering spine surgery see him for sure.

I saw Dr. Felix for my severe chronic back pain that was affecting my legs. He did surgery on me and it could not have gone better. I wish I would have had him do it 10 years ago. I am enjoying life again. I would recommend Dr. Felix to anyone and everyone who is having back pain.

I have to say that doctor Felix is a fantastic. Doctor if it wasn't for him. I would still be in a wheelchair. Trying to get around. I guess you could say he's saved my bacon. I had this issue for 15 years. And could not find a doctor in the state of Utah. To treat this issue. Dr. Felix stepped up I now can walk without no pain. And I am blessed to have a doctor such as Doctor Felix.

Dr Felix has been a positive 3 for 3 on 3 my surgeries over the past 15 years: 2 back (microdiscectomies) and 1 neck (ACDF). He and Marc, Cynthia, and Susan are consummate pros. They do a great job keeping you and your relatives informed and comfortable. I couldn't recommend a better team to help you heal.

I had been told several horror stories about spinal fusion surgery from associates that I work with. My experience was totally not what I was expecting. Everything went well and I was very pleased with the outcome. If I had known how much of a difference it was going to make in my day to day activities I would have done it sooner. Dr Felix and Mark were the best and explained everything. I felt very comfortable.
