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.

He is a very competent surgeon and his PA, Marc Waters, is fantastic.

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.
in Sandy, Utah |
Dr. Felix and Dr. Waters made the scary experience of surgery not so scary. Great Success with my surgery. I would definitely recommend these Doctors to anyone needing Orthopedic surgery. You can barley see my scar! Thanks to both of you!!!

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 Dr. Felix and his team.

He was very thorough, listened to me and gave me straight-up, plain English, explanations and choices. My wife was particularly impressed. This was a procedure I had put off for a long time and wanted it done. Dr. Felix and his team assisted us in accomplishing this goal. The team I worked with were all on page to the treatment needs recommended. The operation was a success for m. .

Providence, UT |
Loved him and his PA. The office staff was friendly and proficient. He knew exactly what my problem was and knew exactly how to fix it. Had surgery at the Cache Valley Hospital in Logan, Utah. Great Experience!!!
Logan, Utah |
Dr. Felix is a fantastic surgeon and very helpful. I was having the worst time with back pain. I had surgery with him and all my problems were solved. He was very professional and kind. He honestly cared about my condition and wanted to help. His PA was also great to work with. I would recommend Dr. Felix to anyone that is having spine related issues. You can not find better.
Once he is done with the procedure. You will never see him again and it doesn't matter if you have a new problem
in Salt Lake City, UT |
My husband had a good experience with Dr. Felix. I thought that he did a wonderful job explaining the procedure before and after surgery. I cannot comment on my experience as a patient of Dr. Felix's as I have never been able to get past his PA. Time is of the essence - especially as insurance is changing and finances were/are an issue, seemed to have little relevance in addressing health concerns and/or making an appointment. I'm very grateful for all the office staff did to help me out.
