Dr. Feeley is personable and straight forward. I appreciated the time he took discussing my plan of care. He never seemed rushed or inconvenienced when I had lots of questions. Also, he has a great team. People called me every single day after my surgery for close to a week, just to make sure I was OK. I felt very well taken care of and I am so thankful I was referred to Dr. Feeley! Thank you!
in Porterville, CA |
Dr. Feeley has been an amazing doctrine through my whole experience from the consultation to the fallow-up.

(Typing with my left hand/one finger only) Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, considerate, straight-forward, present & aware, serious, knows-his-stuff-doesn't-fool-around. Sorry it's not not more flowing but I gave a warning. Felt good with him, trustworthy.

I'm a marathon runner & triathlete. I went in to see Dr. Feeley for knee pain. Found out I had been competing with a completely torn ACL & meniscus for over 10 years. I never had any major surgery & was really scared. It was an emotional challenge & Dr. Feeley & his team treated me with efficiency, kindness and patience. Surgery is not easy but being on my 3rd week of recovery, ahead of recovery schedule, was at work the week after and have increasing range & strength daily. Immensely grateful
Thank you for the kind note. We are happy to take care of all levels of athletes, and hope to get you back to triathlons at the end of your recovery.
Hayward, CA |
Dr. Feeley and his team are excellent. I had a tear in my bicep which he diagnosed right away. I delayed surgery for about a year but when I was ready, he was ready for me??. We put together a surgery plan and moved forward. The day of the surgery I was informed during every step/surgery prep procedure and did not have any anxiety about the procedure. My recovery was just as he said it would be and his follow-up has been great. Looking forward to getting back to my regular routine.
in San Mateo, CA |
I had pain and a rotator cuff tear (two more were found during surgery) which kept me from being as active as I would like. I found Dr. Feeley from his Youtube videos and was impressed with his enthusiasm. He is also very athletic - he surfs Ocean Beach. Also, UCSF is a leading research center for Orthopedics. I dropped Kaiser and had surgery two weeks ago. I was very impress with his team. They follow you every day to make sure your recovery goes well. The incisions are practically invisible.
Thank you for your note. We look forward to seeing you back in the lineup in Ocean Beach for the fall swells!

From intake through examination, surgery and follow-up Dr. Feeley and his care team have taken impressive care of my shoulder injuries. The experience is tightly integrated and everything they do uses state of the art, patient-friendly technology. My surgery was flawless. Dr. Feeley is a leading expert in the field with numerous publications and recognition. In person he was clear, concise and answered all my questions super fast by email - even over the holidays. Highest recommendation.
Hi Matt--thank you for the kind note. We try our best to communicate quickly with patients as we know that the peri-operative and post-operative period can be challenging for patients, especially when it is their first major injury. We hope to get you back to all your sports soon!.
Novato, CA |
Dr. Feeley and his surgery team did a great job, friendly and made me feel at ease and confidant in their abilities. His assistant Rosie is very nice, knowledgeable, and attentive. Everyone I encounted with Dr. Feeley and UCSF was super duper friendly as well, which made me feel well cared for.
