    Saw Dr Neifeld for almost 30 yrs and was very upset that he no longer has his practice. Always had great ARNPs and PAs. Would love to find him if he is still practicing.

    I was a patient of Dr Neifeld for almost 30 years. He had the same office staffand they were all very professional. Then wellmed bought his practice and ran it into the ground. They took a man who loved his work, his patients, was knowledgeable, patience and understanding, always listening to your problem and tried to turn him into one of these minute clinic Dr's. I would recommend him to anyone. I would never recommend any Wellmed facility to my worst enemy. My rating is based on my wellmed exp

    We are committed to providing superior healthcare, well care and preventative care for each of our patients.

    Dr. Neifeld says...

    My interest has been in complicated patients, with multiple medical problems. I believe our health care system has failed the elderly and the many disabled patients, who require more attention than most PCPs are able to provide. I have had 30 years of experience with Hospital Medicine and have cared for the sickest patients. The PCPs of today do not even know what the inside of Hospital looks like, since the care is referred to the Hospitalist.
