      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Felig also served two years in the United States Air Force in the rank of captain. He performed his military service at the Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory at Wright-Patterson Air Base, where he was in charge of a research program on the effects of a pure oxygen environment. At that time, U.S. spacecraft used a pure oxygen environment whose safety was the subject of research and publications by Dr. Felig.

      Following his training, Dr. Felig joined the faculty of the Yale University School of Medicine as an assistant professor and rose to full professorship. Dr. Felig served as Chief of Endocrinology at Yale and Vice Chairman of the Department of Medicine.

The team was the first to demonstrate the effectiveness of an insulin pump in the management of type I diabetes mellitus. Dr. Felig also did research on changes in glucose metabolism in type II diabetes and in obesity.

      Dr. Felig's expertise and accomplishments as a practicing endocrinologist have been recognized by his having been listed in New York Magazine's "Best Doctors" list on thirteen separate occasions. He has also been recognized with awards as a "most compassionate doctor" and by repeated listings by "Best Doctors of America," and by recognition as an outstanding endocrinologist by the Consumer's Research Council.

      Dr. Felig's other awards and distinctions include past presidency of the Yale chapter of Alpha Omega Alpha, Honor Medical Society, the Commendation Medal of the United States Air Force for "distinguished and meritorious service as a research investigator," the American College of Physicians Teaching and Research Scholar Award, Honorary Doctor of Medicine from the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, the Lilly Award from the American Diabetes Association, the Mary Jane Kugel Award from the Juvenile Diabetes Association, the Alverenga Prize of the Swedish Medical Society for Research of Outstanding Scientific Merit, the Charles Best Lectureship of the Toronto Diabetes Association, the Jean Claude Kellion Lectureship of the Australian Diabetes Association, the American Medical Writers Association Medical Book Award for the textbook Endocrinology and Metabolism, the Alpha Omega Alpha Lectureship at the Ohio State University School of Medicine, the Ropheh Award (Distinguished Physician Award) of the Shaare Zedek Hospital, Jerusalem, Israel, and the Medic Award of the Rachmiel Levine Diabetes Center at New York Medical College.
