"I could not have asked for a better experience than my knee replacement surgery that was done in January by Dr. Helene Feiler. All of my appointments were coordinated with Lisa (excellent) at the front desk. There was never a wait to be seen by Dr. Feiler. I believe Dr. Feiler was the best surgeon I could have ever asked for. Thorough, caring, compassionate and an excellent surgeon. I had limped for 29 years after 2 reconstructive surgeries from a softball accident. I was in surgery for over 2.5 hours and was up walking with a walker that night. I had barely any pain after the surgery (mostly muscular due to muscles that were moving in a better direction). Follow-up with PT (Karen) was excellent. I can't say enough great things about this experience and I no longer limp! My quality of life has improved greatly."
"My second total knee replacement was a SUCCESS! - Dr. Feiler is truly fantastic. She is very professional but, most importantly, is compassionate (really cares about the patient). Dr. Feiler's staff really makes you feel comfortable and calm. Highly recommend."
"I have been seeing Dr. Feiler for knee issues. She prepared me for and performed surgery on my knee. The entire experience was very good. Dr. Feiler is caring, and listens to my concerns. She provides me with easy to understand responses to my questions. The reception staff are very pleasant and knowledgeable. They process me through with a minimum of fuss. All in all I find Excel and all of its staff to be the best."
"I had the most outstanding doctor, Dr. Helene Feiler. She has done 2 total knee replacements on me and both surgeries had an excellent outcome. I enjoy living a pain free life. Their hard work has me moving around and once again enjoying the daily activities of life. She was compassionate and very efficient. I had an excellent team of people caring for me."
"I had major shoulder surgery as well as biceps surgery. Thanks to the hard work of Dr. Feiler, I was able to gain movement back in my shoulder! The doctor, staff and therapist are a great working team!! I went through extensive physical therapy and recovered well!"
