Specialties

Dr. Christopher L Fellows has the following 4 specialties

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology

    While cardiologists diagnose and treat all types of heart disease, electrophysiologists have extended education in rhythmic disorders, also known as cardiac arrhythmia or an irregular heartbeat. An electrophysiologist typically works closely with a cardiologist and together they can treat arrhythmia, help you prevent blood clots, or restore and control a normal heart rate.
    They can also provide information on medications and devices — such as a pacemaker or an implantable defibrillator — used to control an abnormal heart rate. When it come to treating arrhythmias, there are both invasive and non-invasive treatment options and an electrophysiologist can help you decide which is right for you.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

difficult diagnosis

After 15 years of searching for a proper diagnosis, I referred myself to Dr. Fellows after seeing a reference guide listing Dr. Fellows as the best on the West Coast for arrythmia problems.I got an appt. the same week that I called, and within 30 minutes of being examined by Dr. Fellows, had an accurate diagnosis.He referred me to an excellent surgeon, and followed through after surgery; even wheeling me out to sit in the sunshine to lift my spirits.I recommend Dr. Fellows highly.

He doesnt need to be your BFF

Dr. Fellows has been my cardiologist since 1988. I was born in 1983. I have known him for a quarter century. He has never been rude. he diagnosed my heart problem and I am alive today because he is good at what he does. You are not hiring a companion or a best friend when you look for a cardiologist. Or any doctor for that matter. He is an excellent CARDIOLOGIST and if, god forbid, one of my children were ever to be diagnosed with a heart condition I will bring them to Dr. Fellows (given he is still in practice).

Sharp tongued!

I've never been so frustrated in my life with a doctor. When he walked in he was completely unfamiliar with my case, one minute telling me there was nothing he was concerned about with my heart, the next minute telling me I needed a pacemaker, and then reiterating again there was nothing to be concerned with and that my heart was strong. He explained very little and made me feel I wasn't allowed to ask questions and that I was stupid, his responses were rude and sharp tongued and he was extremely arrogant. I'm sure I had high blood pressure by the time I left, he is so fired! I agree with the other review, FIND SOMEONE WHO CARES!

The man fixed my heart

I read some of the other reviews on here. Yes the doctor is a little scary, but if you're a normal person with a heart problem, you were scared long before you met this guy. I live in Yakima, and once my condition was diagnosed, I feel that Doctor Fellows and his staff scheduled and treated me within a very reasonable amount of time. I would recommend his services to anyone needing catheter ablation.
