Dr. Foyt took out a huge tumor from my son's ear. Great doctor. He moved to Albany Med and we see him there.

Great ear doctor. Saved my son's hearing. He had a huge cholesteatoma. We see him now at Albany Med. He is director of some department there but sees patients as well.

I am 64 and have hearing loss in one ear. Foyt said it was a simple operation, same day surgery. I only learned of the risks while signing paperwork a few days before the surgery. I assumed the were very slight risks since the Dr. never mentioned them. Now, a year later, I cannot taste my food at all, and the hearing is only slightly better. Of course the Dr. says, according to his "in house" hearing test that me hearing is totally restored. I can tell you it is not. He botched the surgery.

Dr. Foyt performed 2 surgery's on me in 2010 and 2011. The VA had missed something for years and if it wasn't for him, I may have been paralyzed on one side. He is an amazing surgeon, truly gifted. He is matter of fact yet he is very kind and compassionate. I still continue to see him and i trust him with my life.

My daughter had 4 ear infection in 4 months. He scheduled her for tubes, then canceled it 5 days prior b/c his standard was 5 in a year I questioned him, as she'd had 4 in 4 months, surely she'd have one more in the next 8, but he said it wasn't necessary. 2 more double ear infections followed in the next month. After surgery, he gave me a COMPLETELY different set of med instructions than post op. I called his office to ask for clarification and never returned my calls. Don't go to him!
