Poor bedside manner, doesn't listen to patient or care about what they have to say. Gets defensive when patient is medical practitioner with knowledge to question him. Incorrect diagnosis saying external hemorrhoid when patient said internal, then later he changes his diagnosis to internal. Said he would do procedure in clinic, but then changed to hospital under anesthesia without telling patient or explaining why. Did not explain pre-op bowel prep well. Had wrong procedure for before surgery and patient would not sign consent until changed. Bills insurance company for exam not done: only looks at buttocks, but progress notes say he looked at eyes, ears, nose, throat, lungs, heart, abdomen, extremities. No recommendation.

I have been THOROUGHLY impressed with Dr. Fealk during my battle with cancer. He's been accessible, upfront, answered all my questions, on top of my case. My husband and I would recommend him without hesitation.

- dr. fealk was rude and didnt care about his patients, we took forever to be seen. he was very unprofessional, and shouldnt talk to people the way he talked to my husband. my husband wanted off of pain meds and he called him a drug addict and is being sued right now. i would recommend this doctor to anyone. he didnt explain hiself very well at all either.,

All i know is that I owe my life to Dr. Fealk. I was flown in from Los Alamos toAlbuquerque by helicipter. Was operated within hours because I had mega colon ready to preferate at any time. He was understanding. passionate, caring and very professional. He ws with me until I was ready to come home and he made an effort to see me before he left out of state. I wish I could talk to him again. I am now a senior and ready to graduate and I am doing great. Thank You

From the first meeting my husband and I had with Dr. Fealk, it was clear that he was several notches above the other dr we had seen. He is very compassionate and has a repore with the patient beyond that of a Dr.-pateint realtionship.He made my husband feel very comfortable, very unpressured but very caring. He spoke as an equal and didn't once make us feel as if he was above us in any way.He is a huge credit to the community and just a really nice man. Anyone would be lucky to have him as their surgeon.
