Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Overall, the entire team did a commendable job of taking me through the whole experience from initial tests and questions to the final follow up visit.
Guthrie Patient: October 2018
Excellent surgeon - uses medical terminology too much, does not respond well to any problems or concerns.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
Dr Fanelli's overall performance is excellent. He has a very dry sense of humor and he has an excellent reputation for the work that he performs. I wish he had a little better bedside manner, with that being said, I would still recommend him to family and friends.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
7. Never talked to me.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
I hope *Dr. Fanelli will assist in my surgery _____ when I am strong enough.
Guthrie Patient: September 2018
I had a colonoscopy and despite being sedated, I woke up and felt pain. I remember feeling the scope in me and it hurting and the doctor yelling at me to stop yelling. He continued and I continued to feel pain from the scope inside me.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
As mentioned, the provider never spoke to me after initial interview before colonoscopy.
Guthrie Patient: August 2018
Only met him in pre-op.
Guthrie Patient: June 2018
Dr. Fanelli and his staff were very compassionate and caring. they helped me and I would recommend them to all.
Guthrie Patient: April 2018
He did not come & talk to me after procedure. His bedside manner is poor. he flew the blanket of my bottom half before I was even sedated & didn't really say much. He knew I was nervous & it made me uncomfortable.
