Specialty: Surgery

Program: Gastrointestinal Oncology

Language(s): English

  • Overview

    Dr. Seth Felder is a board-certified colon and rectal surgical oncologist Associate Member in the Department of Gastrointestinal Oncology at Moffitt Cancer Center. Following fellowship colon and rectal surgical training at the University of Minnesota, he then pursued additional training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Advanced Colorectal Surgical Oncology. He understands the fears patients face with his/her diagnosis, specifically regarding the functional and psychological impact that may result from surgery.  He focuses on these important aspects of a patient’s quality of life, and when possible, he uses nerve-sparing surgical techniques that can help to preserve anal, bladder, and sexual function. In addition, Dr. Felder has significant experience in complex Robotic minimally invasive colon and rectal surgery, which can shorten recovery times.  He works closely with specialists in medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiology, and pathology to discuss the care of patients in a multi-disciplinary fashion. Dr. Felder’s primary area of research and clinical expertise is rectal cancer. Through a multi-disciplinary strategy, each patient’s treatment is reviewed carefully to maximize both the cancer and quality of life outcomes. His research efforts mainly study rectal cancer response to preoperative therapies, aiming to better understand and maximize tumor response.  Dr. Felder’s research has been presented at national meetings and published in medical journals as well as textbook chapters.  He is member of the Clinical Guidelines Committee for the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgery, the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) guidelines for Hereditary (Familial/Genetic) Colorectal Cancer, and on the Scientific Advisory Board for FORCE, a resource empowering patients and families facing hereditary cancer.

  • Patient Comments

    Overall Satisfaction


    138 patients rated this provider

    The Provider Rating is an average of all responses to specific care provider-related questions from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.

    Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.

    Learn more about our patient satisfaction survey



    Comments are gathered from specific care provider-related questions from our Patient Satisfaction Survey . The comments are submitted by patients and reflect their views and opinions. Patients are de-identified for confidentiality and patient privacy.

    We post both positive and negative comments from the surveys. We do not post comments that are libelous, slanderous, profane, irrelevant or otherwise inappropriate or may risk the privacy of our patients. A “[…]” in the comments below indicates de-identified patient information or comments that are unrelated to the patient’s experience with the visit to the provider, such as comments related to another provider, about the survey itself, or otherwise completely off-topic.

    Not all providers will have a star rating or comments. In order to ensure accuracy of our ratings, we only display ratings for providers who have a minimum of 30 completed from the previous 12 months.

    Learn more about our patient comments

    Provider Ratings and comments are gathered from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. If a provider does not have ratings or comments listed it can be for several reasons, including:

    • The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display. We require a minimum of 30 surveys before we post results to ensure that the rating is statistically reliable and a true reflection of patient satisfaction.
    • He or she may be a researcher or other type of provider that does not see patients.
    • The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.
