      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. .

      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!!!

      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.
