Hey man. Glad to see you're getting this narrowed down and closer to making a decision. I can only personally speak of my experience with Dr. Mohebi (who I couldn't recommend more highly), and am most familiar with Dr. Feller out of the other 3. Either of those options would leave you in fantastic hands. I don't hear as much about the other 2, but that's not to say that they're not just as worthy of being considered.
Having said all that, one of the things that can't be underrated after all the research and question and comparisons (and more research) is to ultimately listen to your gut. Who did you get the best feeling about when you met them? Who's style and overall demeanor left you feeling comfortable and at ease? Who did you find to be more on the same page as you than the others? These are all questions that only you can answer, and I truly believe listening to this voice in the final stages of making a decision is vital. At the end of the day, there are a decent number of fantastic surgeons in the world who are doing great work, and would probably give you satisfactory results - but you have to figure out for yourself which one is the best fit for you and which one you feel comfortable moving forward with.
I would also recommend talking to former patients on the phone. I think that's a very valuable way of finding out more about the surgeon and the overall experience that you could expect. Ask the surgeons to put you in touch with someone and they should be more than willing to do so.
I am a patient advocate for Dr. Parsa Mohebi in Los Angeles, CA. My views/opinions are my own and don't necessarily reflect the opinions of Dr. Mohebi and his staff.
