      First time to see Dr Folkestad for annual gyn appointment. It was obvious that the doctor didn't take the time to look over my medical history before coming into room. After asking me two questions he said I won't renew your hormones because the WHO says they don't work and aren't necessary. When I said I wanted to stay on them he didn't ask why or give me a chance to tell him my medical history. He spent maybe 5 minutes with me and gave to worse overall exam I've ever experienced.

      I absolutely love each Dr . Folkestad. He's an amazing doctor that reassured me when I was having a complicated pregnancy. I will continue seeing Dr.Folkstad for any future pregnancies.
      His staff was horrendous! Because of his impatience I was forced to have a c-section. He never explained why I had to have it he just didn't want to wait anymore I was only in labor 16 hours and got to 9.5 cm. I will not recommend him or that hospital to my worst enemy

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
