Ratings for Dr. Stephen H. Fehnel
Dr. Fehnel is the worst doctor I have ever been to. He does not listen to you at all - he does not even LOOK at you while he is talking to you. I was discussing a new problem with him and he explained spoke to me for about 30 minutes and did not look at my face once. He makes me very uncomfortable, and I feel that he is very rude and arrogant. I will NEVER go back to him again - stick with Dr. Pellegrini!
I have been seeing Dr. Fehnel for 24 yrs. He delivered my first child and performed my first surgery which was a hysterectomy. I would not have wanted anyone else but him to guide me through my procedure. The best thing that he could have done was inform my husband of the changes I would be going through which also made my husband aware also. I feel Dr, Fehnel is very knowledgable in his field and will share it with you so you also understand. Sometimes he may tell you things you dont want to hear but it is always for your own good. His bedside manner is great, we always have had a great patient/doctor relationship. I wouldnt want anyone else.
Dr Fehnel is a very knowledgeable surgeon. However, he does not relate to patients very well and I don't think he listens to what you are saying. He is very clinical but informative. I prefer someone who is friendlier and can relate in laymans terms. He was pressuring me about having an additional procedure and I just held my ground and told him he could do the surgery how I wanted or I would cancel and go elsewhere. I beleive he was caught offguard a bit, but agreed to do it my way. Doctors have to understand that the patient is in charge and they have been hired to perform a service. It's been almost a year and so far I've had good results. I would seriously have to consider going to him again mostly because of his bedside manner and arrogance. I am considering changing practices, mostly because the doctors lack that personal care that people are looking for. The nursing staff is good and friendly, but very rushed. My last appointment was over an hour wait time.
Dr. Fehnel is quite good. His bedside manner is comforting and reassuring. He is a nice person in addition to being a good doctor. Sometimes, he may be late for an appointment, but it is because he may be with a patient who needs him longer OR he is delivering a baby! Knowing that he will take his time with a patient who need him makes me feel good about having him as my doctor.
