I did not feel like he really cared about my issues, he did not listen to the history associated with my issue. I felt like I was processed as if I was checked off the list. Issues of the Spine is very serious and I did not feel like I was taken seriously.

Dr. Felmly has 3 attributes I like in a doctor. He is conscientious while looking over tests in a non rushed manner. He listens to your health issues thinks for a moment and delivers a diagnosis. Ask him to please help and he does. Wish I had found him sooner. I highly recommend Dr. Felmly.
in Columbia, SC |
Dr Felmly failed to correct a situation he created demonstrating he fails to take responsibilities for his actions. He is not trustworthy and when one has their life in a surgeons hands, they have to be able to trust the physician. Extremely disappointed in him not only as a physician, but as a human being in general.
