What People Say About Dr. Candido Fuentes-Felix, MD

My 3 year old son fell and required a number of stitches on his chin. Dr. Fuentes was recommended to me by a friend, and I cannot recommend him enough. On a beautiful Saturday afternoon when most people would be out enjoying the day, Dr. Fuentes immediately met us at the hospital to stitch my son. We were in and out of the hospital in just a short amount of time, with no waiting. Dr. Fuentes has a wonderful bedside manner, and my 3 year old was so comfortable with him. Definitely save his number in your phones in the event of any emergencies - I've been telling all of my friends to do the same! Thank you, Dr. Fuentes!

I went to CityMD for injuries to my nose and forehead (bad running accident) and when the x-rays came back -several fractures in my nose was determined and a deep laceration on my nose requires stitches. CityMD contacted Dr. Fuentes-Felix who saw me immediately upon my arrival at St. Katherine's in Smithtown. His bedside manner was quite calming and gentle as he sutured me up. I will be seeing him for a follow-up, and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family!!!

I am a dentist and was in the army and have seen my share of traumatic injuries. In july 2016 I had the misfortune of lacerating my shin wide open down to the bone. It was about 7 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide and 1 inch deep. I did have the great luck and fortune of being treated by Dr. Fuentes-Felix who was on call at the Huntington Hospital emergency room. He placed about 100 stitches and closed my wound beautifully. He possibly saved my leg. I have a minimal scar. He's great.

I had an eye orbit fracture playing basketball in Oct. 2015. I was recommended to Dr. Fuentes by an Urgent Care Dr. in Bay Shore. I made an appt. at his office, he was very professional, & told me that after a few months you won't even be able to tell you had any surgery. This Dr. was correct in everything he stated to me. I highly recommend Dr. Fuentes for his honesty, Integrity, & all around professionalism.
