a very useful and helpful visit. the doctor was very patient with us and answered all our questions. I had no questions left on my list! We left very reassured that we were in very good hands. We have friends who have seen him also and his fine reputation is well deserved.

Dr. Fellman was very helpful to me and my husband in explaining MS and the treatments and possible problems. He spent a lot of time with us and answered our questions. We left feeling reassured and much more hopeful about the future.
