I would certainly recommend Dr. Feigert to anyone needing to see an oncologist. Throughout the process, he explained everything clearly and listened to my concerns. I'm four years cancer free, so his plan (along with Dr. Hong) worked!

Dr. Feigert is a knowledgeable and compassionate doctor with a great bedside manner. He is willing to answer questions in a way that is easy to understand. I am his patient but also saw him deal with an emergency at the infusion center when my friend was a patient there. He was calm, in control, and very comforting to her. Although he is not one of the top specialists for my rare blood cancer, he knows those specialists and coordinates well with them.

Dr Feigert is an excellent doctor who always takes time to discuss issues related to my case and respond to any questions that I have.

Dr. Feigert is very intelligent, he communicates clearly, answers all my questions in a way I can understand, anticipates things I may want to know, but haven’t yet asked, and communicates that information. He is a patient, kind person. He is honest. He does not have a big ego. He listens to me. I am grateful to be in his care.

My last visit with Dr. Feigert was one during which I had to deal with a medical emergency. He was very attentive and empathetic. He took time to explain to me the options and reassured me that all will work out. I would highly recommend Dr. Feigert to others and give him an A+.
