Ratings for Dr. Joseph B. Felder
When you have a chronic illness you just want to be well. Having a doctor that takes the time to understand you and your disease is well worth a wait in the waiting room. I have been a patient of Dr. Felder's for over 20 years. He has kept me healthy enough to bear a child I never thought I could have. Because of Joe Felder I can hold a job and take care of my family. if you expect consistent punctuality in a physician's office, you have unrealistic expectations. Personally, I have seen Dr Felder in emergency circumstances a number of times and am grateful to have a physician who takes this time with me to ensure my safety and well being. If you want to be part of an assembly line ... Go somewhere else!
I am very surprised by all the negative ratings on Dr Felder. I have been going to him for 5 years now and I think he is great. He is VERY knowledgeable and professional. His bedside manner is terrific. Yeah, the guy is busy. Because he's good and because a lot of people trust him. Don't judge a doctor by the wait time.
I don't trust this Doctor for several reasons. First, you can wait over an hour to see him! He likes to joke around, which I typically don't mind, but he takes it too far. I ask a question, and he would make a silly quip, not addressing my concerns. Don't get me wrong - I use comedy as a defense mechanism, so I get it, but when your health is a concern, don't make a bunch of jokes. My other big issue is you have to schedule a follow-up appointment to get your test results. Really? I have to pay to get my results? Maybe in his world where money isn't an object, but I don't live in that world. I can't afford to miss more work, and pay again unless it is absolutely necessary (ie he found something wrong that I need to go back in for). Who does this? Finally, if you want him to write you a script he'll force you to come in! Last, he talked me into a medication that was far more expensive, that insurance said was unnecessary, and it didn't help, yet he kept prescribing it! Suspicious!
HeI was recommended by my internist so I should have been impressed. NOT! He rushes you,doesn't explain anything clearly,not too knowledgable, avoids diagnosis to justify lots and lots of tests for insurance $$$. He is more concerned about booking your next appointment than he is with your health. He is ALWAYS running late. Minimal wait time= 2 hours. His staff is extremely rude,impatient,obnoxious, and just plain dumb! DO NOT GO!!!
This office is a JOKE. Jennifer at the front desk is potentially the MOST idiotic and obnoxious receptionist EVER. I really cannot believe she is still employed. Felder=tests, more tests, insurance $$$$, and impatient, he rushes you and doesn't answer questions. They fight you to release records for a second opinion (UNETHICAL BEYOND BELIEF) and are stingy with samples (when they have them). Overall, go somewhere else, anywhere else.
