I met with Dr Fellows regarding periodic discomfort I was experiencing in the area around my defibrilator, which he installed in 2009. He spent a couple of minutes checking it out on his analyzer and reported the device appeared normal, and then basically said goodby. A qualified technical could have done the same thing. He didn´t seem concerned with my well-being, just that his device was performing adequately. He wouldn´t speculate on why I was experiencing this discomfort.

I had last engaged with Dr. Fellows about 12 years ago and did not enjoy my experience so I went in to this appointment with a fair amount of skepticism. I was very pleasantly surprised. Dr. Fellows manner is much kindlier and compassionate than my previous experience.

I was mildly surprise at how he talked to me when he found out I was not aware of what was about to happen. He was very patient and kind in explaining things so I knew what about to happen.

Dr Fellows seemed rushed - think this was a very busy day. would have been good if he had taken a deep breath before our appointment but I believe that he answered all my questions. I should have asked for a written copy of his notes, to refresh my memory.

First meeting with Dr. Fellows. Immediately comfortable with his manner and experience, and totally pleased with the thoroughness of our discussion and the follow-up plan that ensued.

Dr. Fellows was very good! Thank you! Really appreciated Dr. Fellows, he was great! The only thing I would say that he and staff could maybe improve on is to include more details about what will happen in pre- & post-procedure. Just because I think some patients would prefer to know a little more (ahead of time).
