Dr. Felizarta is everything one would want in a doctor and more! I found him to be very intelligent and compassionate. He is warm, kind, friendly, pleasant, cheerful, up best, patient and engaging. Because of his expertise and compassionate nature, i always felt very safe and optimistic under his care. Dr. Felizarta has an inate ability to balance professionalism and warmth and he delivers both endearingly with ease. I will always be greatful to him for all that he is, has been and done for me.

I called about my appointment that was at 8/26/16. At 11:15 a.m. because I went to the wrong place the lady now i know her name is nancy..then tells me that I have no appointment and I said well I'm looking at the dr. Order the appointment information..then proceeded to be argumentative and rude and unprofessional...

Sits behind a big desk and looks important. Doesnt have any feeling or kindness - looks like he does not care about me at all. Afraid to shake my hand ( maybe might get diseases from disease patients!) NO PERSONALITY AT ALL! ( I suppose as long as he gets his fee, that is all that matters)
