Ratings for Dr. Philip Felig
I was kept waiting one hour first visit , on second after waiting 45 minutes I walked out .. This doctor did not know that lead posioning effects your endocrine system. The staff does t know hot to send an attachment in an email. My evakuation was useless to my doctors I was diagnosed wih a condition I was already being treated for.
A scholar and a gentleman. Very thorough exam and immediate analysis. .Very meticulous
I came to Dr. Felig to finally get a diagnosis of hypothyroidism that other doctors had missed. For that I am grateful. Unfortunately I did NOT do well on Synthroid (did not feel good in that hypothyroidism way) on the maximum dosage. Dr Felig prescribed Cytomel which I had horrible headaches from. When my hair continued to shed after my thyroid was balanced I was told, "well it's not your thyroid". It took the next endocrinologist I saw to tell me that Synthroid can cause hair loss and then the new endocrinologist started me on Armour dessicated thyroid and BINGO my hair stopped falling out almost immediately and I felt much better on the Armour which I do not believe Dr.Felig will prescribe. I spent we'll over $600 out of pocket for the initial visit and waited 2 hours for each of several visits. I maybe would have put up with this treatment if I wasn't going bald and felt better. I wish this site allowed you to rate your MEDICAL experience. Bottom line-go elsewhere.
Dr Felig is the 5th and final endo I have seen. He is the ONLY one that actaully took my thyroid symptoms (hair loss and others)seriously and did a lab test that 4 other doctors overlooked which led to me add an additional medication that all the other useless doctors overlooked.
Dr. Felig was recommended by my nutritionist and I have found him to be both very knowledgeable and thorough. I am not surprised by comments that 1) he runs late (ALWAYS) and 2) that the office can be a bit chaotic (no worse than many busy physicians in Manhattan). I am surprised by comments that people find his staff rude...they are actually very friendly if you are friendly to them...Beverly is the best blood drawer in the City...and comments that he does not spend time with patients. My first appointment with him (and that was time with him not waiting) was nearly 90 minutes...I have never felt hurried.
