What People Say About Dr. Brent Felix, MD

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.

Do not see this doctor he is only in office one day a week. His medical assistant Toni is awful she wasted two weeks of my time because she needed to talk to doc but he’s never there. I was in horribly pain. Doc didn’t even pay attention at my appt.

My experience with Dr. Felix and his P.A. Mark Waters could not have gone better. I woke kup with no -- I repeat, NO PAIN at all. I have had no ill effects and my only problem has been in constantly reminding myself to not do any lifting or bending for at least six weeks. Life is good again!

Dr. Felix recently performed surgery on my back. he was my second opinion for a similar surgery I had 18 years ago. He is very competent. I had been to a number of doctors and he finally diagnosed the need for surgery and the urgency. Mark Waters was fantastic and was very helpful.

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.

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. .

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.

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.
