What People Say About Dr. Stephen Feltz, MD

While a very nice gentleman, I was very disappointed when he told me he doesn’t perform uterine suspensions. He wanted to do a very similar repair to the one his colleagues did 10 years ago, which had failed. I went to the University of Iowa for a second opinion and was advised I needed a vaginal and uterine suspension. I wish I had just gone to UIHC 1st. I received a superior surgical repair than I would have w/Dr. Feltz.

Terrible is an understatement. He never listened to me at routine appointments instead drew his own inaccurate conclusions. Insulted me twice. Gave me an unnecessary c-section which also left me sick and hospitalized with infection afterwards due to his neglect during the surgery. I had to have two more surgeries to fix what went wrong. I will never forget the condescending things he said to me when I needed support the most. Honestly, I'm shocked he is still allowed to practice

I can't say enough good things about this doctor and his entire staff. I originally went to him for treatment of a bladder issue. Because he is thorough and professional, he was able to diagnose me with cancer, despite the fact that I never had any symptoms. Because of the rating of the cancer, he referred me to an oncologist but without his timely intervention, my cancer may have developed into a life-threatening condition instead of a treatable one.
