Won't go back, would not recommend, don't go to her..., Apr 25, 2013
Office was dirty. Entrance to office difficult to find. Poor review of medical history and poor physical exam. Difficulty in getting prescription refill. Doctor took 3 phone calls and left the exam room twice during visit.
Would not recommend.
Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...
AMAZING, considerate, compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, 10 out of 10!!..., Mar 22, 2013
I went to Dr. F for my 2nd baby. He was so caring and considerate. He did not make me feel bad asking questions and did not act like he expected me to know everything. He helped me get out of a bad situation to focus on my growing baby. Dr. Fellenbaum noticed that my son was getting big by ultrasound and started monitoring me more closely. I started dilating early, but never went in to labor on my own as I did with my first. When I was dilated to 4 for a week we opted to induce. The hospital was understaffed when I arrived for my induction, and he made sure that the hospital knew it was unacceptable to leave his patients laboring while unsupervised. He did a great job on my son's circumcision and got us home as soon as possible (26 hours after delivery to be exact!), which I was very thankful for! He is a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable doctor!!!
Beware of this office. They will start treatment then dismiss you under FALSE ACCUSATIONS ..., Feb 24, 2013
You WILL NOT get the medication you need for you hypertension. Janette, the office manager will dismiss you and tell lies to the insurance company after the doctor has been paid for the month with your medicare hmo plan to take care of you. Once you are seen 1 time with any HMO plan the insurance cannot retract the money they gave the doctor to provide care for the ENTIRE month. She will demand you leave and refuse to let you finish your appointment with the doctor WHILE YOU ARE IN AN EXAM ROOM. They send you to doctors for things you never were in there for and NOT treat you for the reason you came in. They order lab work and then refuse to give you the results. Being diabetic with hypertension, it is important for my medical well being to get such results to make sure the medication is either working or overworking. The doctor has had probation with disciplinary action which you can request information on. I hope this will help future patients in making a better informed decision about the doctor they see.
