Thursday, October 17, 2019Dr Feldman was very passionate about his work. He often said whatever he was thinking which was part of his charm. One time he told me he was surprised I was thin still because most Narcolepsy patients were fat. He told me I would eventually be fat. Haha. Still hasn’t happened Dr Feldman. I spoke about religion with him, (Jewish vs Christianity) the latest news on Narcolepsy, and much more. He was a character and always had something interesting to say. He cared about his patients deeply and will be missed. -Angie H.

Tuesday, August 20, 2019I just heard the news from my pharmacist. I was a patient of Dr.Feldman’s and I am so very sorry to hear he is gone. Dr.Feldman really helped me with my full-face mask. He said I had one of the most severe cases he’s ever seen. But through trial and error, he found what works for me. I am thankful Dr.Feldman never gave up. He was the best. Condolences to all family and loved ones. I am so sorry for your loss! My prayers are with you! Pastor Lori

Monday, July 22, 2019I returned from vacation to discover Dr. Feldman’s passing. He was a gifted physician, a love able character and my sleep apnea support.

Thursday, July 18, 2019I just heard of Dr. Feldman's passing. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. He was such an amazing doctor. He helped me to make my life manageable and I always trusted him with me care. He always was looking out for my over health and care by providing me information to read up on and questions to ask my other doctors, which there are a few. I really feel lucky to have been a patient of his and I will miss him very much. Of all the doctors I have had, he is one of the three I have ever trusted and it’s not a short list. He really was an amazing pulmonologist and a lifesaver to me for years. I only wish I had a chance to get to know him on a more personal level being that he lived such an interesting life. I’m sure he will be sorely missed by many.

Monday, July 8, 2019I met Dr. Feldman doing a clinical study for narcolepsy. He was the only doctor I have even had that made me feel understand and welcome. Even when I moved almost 2 hours away I kept him as my doctor cause I trusted and respected him. He was an amazing doctor and was not afraid to be blunt and honest with me. My prayers go out to his family and co workers. He was more than just a doctor to us patients he was a friend and will be greatly missed.

Sunday, July 7, 2019In the years when Neil was active at Palms, I spent many hours with him at the bedside of critically ill patients, usually in the wee hours of the morning, performing the surgical procedures needed in his patients' care. He was everything good that all have said in these notes. He almost single-handedly brought modern critical care to Palms.

Sunday, July 7, 2019I just learned that the good Dr passed away. I started seeing Dr Feldman several years ago after being referred by my trusted long time primary care doctor, Dr Crist. Dr Feldman diagnosed my problem and I soon started with my CPAP machine. He is certainly an expert in his field and his knowledge was exceptional. Over time I learned we were born in the same year and he was only a few months older than me. I felt we had a certain bond and I am very sad he passed away. My next appointment with him was scheduled in just over 1 week on July 15th. I feel lost. My condolences to his family, work family, and friends.

Wednesday, July 3, 2019Dr. Feldman changed the history of my family when he diagnosed my wife with narcolepsy, something that dozens of doctors had failed to do while she struggled with it for over 15 years. His treatment plan allowed her to live a normal life and complete a college education while raising three children. He then helped her mother, who he also diagnosed with narcolepsy after dozens of doctors had failed to correctly diagnose her for almost 30 years. Dr. Feldman's incredibly positive impact on my family's health and quality of life is impossible to overstate. He was incredibly knowledgeable in his field and always showed sincere care and concern. Our lives are immeasurably better because of Dr. Feldman. We will forever be grateful for having been fortunate enough to walk through his door.

Wednesday, July 3, 2019Dr. Feldman was truly a gifted physician and he will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. A year ago, a friend recommended that I see Dr. Feldman, after eight years of struggling with narcolepsy. I had failed the bar exam multiple times and was ready to give up. It didn’t seem possible for a narcoleptic to have a successful career, let alone a normal life. Dr. Feldman assured me that my fears were unwarranted. He went above and beyond to help me with medication, to educate me about narcolepsy and to provide encouragement when I needed it the most. I just saw Dr. Feldman in May, and told him that I had finally passed the bar exam, on my fourth attempt and that I couldn’t have done it without him. He was a physician of the highest caliber and I count myself blessed to have known him.

Monday, July 1, 2019I just saw Dr. Feldman a month ago, I made a mistake and thought my appointment was in June instead of July. I'm glad that I did and got to see him one last time. I've been a patient of his since 1993. I always enjoyed our conversations during my appointments with him we talked about what he had been up to lately, what was the latest in the Sleep Disorder field and things that had gone on in my life. He was brilliant, funny, very compassionate and a patient advocate. A great man. I was shocked to hear of his passing when I called the office today. My deepest condolences to his loved ones. He was a gem.

Saturday, June 29, 2019Neil was a major mentor to me during my training at the Brigham. Because of him I developed my interest in sleep medicine. We remained in contact over the years and I continued to learn from him. He will be missed.
Bruce Tammelin MD posted a condolence
Saturday, June 29, 2019I always thought Neil would live forever! My mother had become his patient in the 1970s and could not say enough wonderful things about him. He often said that she had built his practice with her referrals to him. He was also my hero. It offered me a job in 1981. I had asked him if he needed any letters from my professors for my various training programs. He said "I don't need any letters, I know your mother". Classic Neil Feldman! I always looked forward to seeing him at the sleep meetings where we would reminisce and talk about what we could've done in Saint Pete had we been partners. Not joining him in practice and moving from California back to Florida was one of the hardest decisions of my life. I know we would've had a wonderful time. Over the years I have thought of him often and quoted him to my colleagues. I share the sadness all of those whose lives he touched over the years and extend my sympathy to his family and loved ones. .

Friday, June 28, 2019First I want to thank those who put together this video. It is lovely to see his smiling face and see him happy. I only learned of his death yesterday almost a week later. And I am still in shock. I will grieve him for a long time. I was one of his patients for 22 years. I saw him twice a year. But I knew of him several years before. Saw a feature article in the newspaper about his work with sleep disorders and referred many of my psychotherapy clients to him. Finally I referred myself to him in 1998. All of my life I had struggled with sleepiness. Often coming close to falling asleep at traffic lights. Once did. In graduate school while studying neuropsychology, I wondered once again if perhaps narcolepsy was my problem. But I always found good reasons why I was so tired all the time. Always pushing myself. During my first appt, he asked me why I didn’t come sooner knowing I had studied the brain in grad school. I told him that my dad always told me I was lazy. Then Dr Feldman said words for which I will always be grateful. He said he knew I had a very good practice bc I referred to him frequently. And he said he now knew I had received my degrees after having 4 children which were still young at that point. Then he said, “When do we get to the lazy part?” It was as tho he took a giant eraser on the chalkboard of my self-worth. Still makes me teary when I remember his words. Yes he was sarcastic but he made me laugh and sometimes annoyed. Yes conversations with him were stimulating. Some of my appts lasted almost an hour if he had the time. He regarded me as a colleague, which was a fabulous compliment. But mostly he was a caring human being. I concur with those who wrote above re his advocating always for his patients. As well as adhering to high moral and ethical standards. I extend my deepest sympathy to his loved ones. You were blessed to have had him love you.

Wednesday, June 26, 2019Neil was one of the most thoughtful individuals I’ve met. His wit and sarcasm led to constant intellectual sparring and his affable nature always made you feel welcome. His love for my mother and their outdoor adventures brought me personal joy. He served his country and he served people...he was just simply really good. It hurts and I’m still shell-shocked by the news ...it will take me a while to process. We were all so optimistic prior to his surgery and our last communication ended with smiles and positivity. Rest In Peace Neil. You are loved. Olaséni Bello

Tuesday, June 25, 2019I was a patient of Dr Feldman’s for years as he managed and helped cure my sleep apnea. His quirky humor and straightforward demeanor were always entertaining; I loved listening to him as I would try to soak in his intelligent and innovative thoughts. Dr Feldman had grown so far in his field of medicine that he left other physicians far behind him with his knowledge of what was ethical , moral, and exceptional patient care. He was kind and I knew he cared about my well-being. I’m so very sad and disrupted to hear that he has passed away. I extend my deepest condolences to his partner, sister, and all family and friends who along with Dr Feldman’s patients will surely experience that our lives will be diminished without him in them.

Tuesday, June 25, 2019Neil was a class act and I always enjoyed time with him when I was just a child. He was highly intellectual, beyond hospitable, and I’m certain he’ll be missed by many people. He was one of the first to increase my adolescent awareness about the Beatles (Here comes the sun from a comedy he enjoyed) and I’ve yet to meet a human being that can repeat any sentence backwards at the drop of a dime. He was a winner and always will be in all of our minds.

You will always be remembered.

Monday, June 24, 2019Neil was once my brother-in-law, and I’d like to send my condolences to his once wife Julia Gill (Feldman) and to Neil’s family. It’s truly sad when one’s life is shortened especially when unexpected. Neil was a great guy, a very intelligent guy and one with a great sense of humor - a very, very funny guy. Theres no question he will be sorely missed by the many whom he touched through his medical practices and he will always be remembered for his love of family, friends, and his work colleagues.

Monday, June 24, 2019Dr. Feldman is well known in this medical community for his passion to make a positive difference in patients' lives. He did this especially through his efforts in direct patient care, education and research. He patiently sought to directly teach those with sleep apnea on how to use their CPAP machine (even despite their reluctance to learn). He sought to teach physicians how to render better care. He continued to co-author peer reviewed manuscripts until this year. He was a pillar of extraordinary care in St. Petersburg, FL. NEIL YOU WENT TOO SOON AND YOU WILL BE MISSED!

Sunday, June 23, 2019Neil's family my heart goes out to you during this sad and difficult time. As you try to find ways to get through one day at a time, please find comfort from Isaiah 33:24 - And no resident will say: “I am sick.” God never intended mankind to get sick, grow old or die. What a beautiful promise at Rev 21:4 "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” Soon almighty God, Jehovah promises to resurrect those lost in death. (John 5:28, 29) Picture that, perfect life on earth with no sickness, pain or death! Warmest regards.
