The Dr. Is kind and listens. He’s very old school but tries hard to help in every way. Staff is horrendous. Rude, nasty, the wait is excruciating.....at least 3 hours. Old office.

Would not recommend as a QME for your Worker's Comp case. I saw Dr. Folmar in mid-July and we still don't have his report. Every time I call, I get the same answer..."Dr. Folmar sent the report back to the transcriber for some corrections." He is supposed to submit the report within 60 days and it has almost been 120 days. Find another QME, if you can!
