Patient Comments (4)
in Nashville, TN |
Had my second visit with Dr. Felch yesterday (last one was a year ago.) As before, Dr. Felch conducted a thorough examination. Unlike some other doctors I no longer visit, he did not rush through the examination (I don't like doctors who appear to be in a "hurry" and appear obsessed with seeing lots of patients.) I would have no difficulty in recommending Dr. Felch if one of my friends or family members requested a referral.

Do not see this doctor. Tests are inadequate. I was a patient of his for 9 years and am going blind due to a missed diagnosis.

Didn't pay attention to what I was telling him and kept putting me off till my eye was not repairable and no cure. Very lucky I didn't sue.

The last two times I visited Dr. Felch I ended up waiting nearly 2 hours. My other doctor has a survey called M3 Patient Experience that gives them feedback from patients. I wish Dr. Felch had this so he could see how long patients have to wait. Not sure anyone at his office will actually see this.
