Specialties

Dr. Richard A Felkel Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Adolescent Medicine

    Adolescent specialists are doctors who have advanced training in the health issues that adolescents face. These physicians deal with issues like the onset of puberty, reproductive health, eating disorders, irregular periods, mood changes, drugs and pressures from home and school. For girls entering adulthood, adolescent specialists can act as both pediatrician and gynecologist, so they only have to see one doctor for all their needs.

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Great Doctor for your children

Dr. Felkel has seen our kids about 19 years. He has a great bedside manner so our kids were comfortable going to see him. If you are new to the area I would recommend him or the other doctors in the practice .

Great first impression!!

We just met Dr. Felkel today for an appointment for my 6 month old son. I was impressed! He spent a great deal of time talking with me about my son, asked a lot of questions and was very knowledgeable. He gave me some great advice, took time examining my son and "together" we agreed on a plan for my child. We are dealing with "slow weight gain" I left his office feeling confident. I have 7 children and went to my old pediatrician for 15 years. When we discovered my son was a "slow gainer" I left my old pediatricians office in tears with a plan I was not in agreement with that wasn't thoroughly discussed. I decided that moment to change doctors. I wish I would have done it sooner. Dr. Felkel will be a great fit for our family, he is kind, listens and is honest and knowledgeable. His staff was extremely friendly. I highly recommend this practice. If you are reading this because you aren't happy with your child's current doctor....don't make the mistake I did by waiting. Switch now you will be so much happier!

Hands down, BEST Doctor

While pregnant with my now 5-year-old I did what most expectant Moms are “supposed to do” interview pediatricians. Looking back, it seems a little funny that here I am, someone with no medical training or background out interviewing doctors! What it came down to is who I felt I clicked with and which doctor I felt I could entrust in their opinion. Looking back Dr. Felkel was the BEST decision I could have made for my child and my family. My first hasn’t been an easy one, born with a congenital heart defect, heart surgery at 5 days old, developmental delays, sensory issues and ADHD. Dr. Felkel has “held” my hand every step of the way and vey patiently answered my millions of questions along the way. My husband and I and our two children are about to move out of state, back home to family. One of the hardest things I’m struggling with is will we find another Dr. Felkel in our new location? I’m not sure the answer to this right now, the only thing I’m certain of is this next doctor has some large shoes to fill. Thank you so much to Dr. Felkel and his staff for taking such good care of our two boys!

He's REALLY this great. Seriously :D Just read. Then GO SEE HIM!

Dr. Felkel is more than just a doctor to our family. He’s a friend and partner in raising our children. We first met Dr. Felkel on a Sat morning for a “get to know you” appointment when we were pregnant with our first. We fell in love immediately with him. His charm, his genuine care for us, his humor, his laid back but knowledgeable demeanor….we just loved him from the start. He set us at ease, as he has done countless times since that day, and we are forever grateful to him. He gave us confidence as parents that we really needed. He still does. Dr. Felkel goes above and beyond. He once was unable to see our daughter, so we had to see a different doctor in the office, also great, but not like our Dr. Felkel. He called the next day just to check on us and our sweet Hannah. One time, our son just had a little cold and we had called in to make sure we didn’t need to do anything. He came into the office on a Saturday he wasn’t working…on a holiday weekend….just to see our little guy and make sure he was ok. He let us in the backdoor of the otherwise closed office and treated us like family. He couldn’t find the stickers the kiddos normally get after an appointment, so he gave him a little toy car from his personal office instead. Our son is leery of pretty much everybody but Dr. Felkel always makes him feel comfortable. Our kids love going to the doctor because of him. We respect him as a physician and adore him as a man. We have recently moved out of state and can no longer see Dr. Felkel, and we are truly devastated. There is something about Dr. Felkel that is extremely rare and I can’t imagine we will ever find another pediatrician with the knowledge he has of medicine or the love he has for our family. We seriously (and I mean this) considered changing jobs and everything about our lives just to stay near his office so our kids could continue to see him. We were more sad to leave him than we were our friends and family in St. Louis. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Felkel. I trust him with my children’s lives and health without any reservation. I hope he still lets me call in when I’m worried about our kids even though we aren’t really patients anymore :D He never once made me feel silly for calling (even though we all know I probably called overly much about super minor things). He always treated us with kindness and patience. And let’s add….I don’t think we were EVER taken back late for our appointments. He never rushed us through an appointment, always being thorough, and yet still always managed to see us on time. He’s an incredible man and doctor. I would recommend him to EVERY family I know (and I have). If I could give this guy a billion on a scale of 1-10 I would. Seriously….he’s that great.
