Amazing doctor!! Always took the time to answer all my concerns/questions and never made me feel rushed!

I love Dr F! He is very caring and knowledgeable! I have complete trust in him! I had my kids before being referred to him when my previous obgyn moved away. I never had any issues with him or the staff or NP for regular gyno visits. I recently had a supra-cervical abdominal hysterectomy so quite a few visits before and after the surgery and I really have no complaints! Dr Folkestad is the best!

My first pregnancy and everything went so smoothly! Dr Folkestad delivered my 3 younger sisters and I knew I wanted him as my Dr when I got pregnant. I never had issues and he answered all my questions and went more in depth for me. He and the office staff are amazing, I can't wait to come back with my next pregnancy! I live further on the west side, so worth the drive!

He delivered my daughter 3 years ago and I am seeing him again for this pregnancy with my son. He is SO friendly, takes his time to answer ANY and ALL questions. Goes above and beyond to make you feel as comfortable as possible. He is incredible. They also do complimentary ultrasounds throughout your entire pregnancy including 3D for free. He truly cares about his patience. I wouldn't trust or go to anyone else. I LOVE Dr.Folkstead

Dr. Folkestad is an amazing doctor, and I would recommend him to anyone. He was my doctor when I was pregnant for my daughter. Being a first time mother I didn't know what to expect but he explained everything along the way. I ended up needing an emergency C-section which he preformed and both my daughter and myself were safe. Although the wait times in the office were long unless you got in before 11 am it was well worth the wait. Staff was very informative and friendly.

Awesome doctor.
in El Mirage, AZ |
I first met Dr. Folkestad and Dr. McKernan (now retired) when I was only 16, during my first womanly exam. After many years, and four children later, I am still very satisfied with Dr. Folkestad. He has an awesome bedside manner, is informative, and is very personable.

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
