Philosophy Of Care

I grew up in an athletic family of physicians and I have always been active in sports, including basketball and running. Medicine was a natural fit for me given my upbringing. I enjoy treating athletes of all ages and types. When I see patients I work to get to the root of the issue. I get excited to see patients getting back to their first marathon, or a teacher being able to stand on her feet all day again, or a mom who wants to run around in the backyard with her kids.

She was excellent.

*Dr. Jennifer M. Felske is a fantastic doctor. She showed so much patience & care for my young daughter.
No Rating Given
I didn't feel like she listened to what I was telling her and was intent on her own path. What she did was the exact opposite of all treatment I have read about. I'm a big fan of trusting the expert-but she left me in worse condition and her range of abilities to offer me were zero. She had one solution-cut and wait-cut and wait. Not what any treatment plan I have read about suggested.
No Rating Given
*Dr. Felske was terrific. Thoughtful, deliberative, compassionate, informative.
No Rating Given
As a linear thinker, I would have liked to hear clear directions for what to do for my injury after we spoke of what I am able to do and not able to do because of financial reasons. The doctor gave me options (i.e. Physical therapy, specially made orthotics, etc.) After I expressed my monetary concerns, she said I could try exercise and orthotics from a running shoe store, etc. But she didn't say what exercises or what type of orthotics to purchase, etc.

Dr. Felski was outstanding in her caring manner and her ability to successfully treat my condition.
No Rating Given
Like I said, I have been a patient for many years - at least 10-12, and have always been impressed.
