Dr. Felch has been my doctor for at least thirty five years. He has also been my son's doctor when my son was four years old. He caught a condition in my son's eye early enough for treatment and my son is fine today. He has taken care of me and I have had two cataract surgeries by him. I was extremely comfortable and did well during and after my surgeries. Thank goodness I had Dr. Felch as my physician. He is absolutely tops!
