First, I had to randomly choose of the docs in the practice which is a bit unfair, but I've never had a visit here though my PCP has sent a referral and records THREE TIMES. When I call the office, they NEVER answer and rarely call back. They obviously don't need new patients but don't even bother to let you know that. I would rather drive to Brunswick then keep waiting for anyone at this office to actually response. Incredibly RUDE.

My experience with Dr. Fels has been a Godsend. I’ve spend years suffering and transferring from physician to physician until I was referred by a family member. I would recommend anyone who is looking for a compassionate professional who knows exactly how to treat, listen, and care.
