Broomfield, CO |
The most amazing orthopedic surgeon in the state of Colorado
in Colorado |
I felt completely comfortable the minute I met Dr. Foulk. Whatever the outcome of my MRI I know I'm in the best hands! He is personable and I believe he cares about what's best for his patients. It's a tremendous relief to find have him looking out for me.
Durango, CO |
Dr. Foulk was a great choice for my surgeon. He was knowledgeable and explained the issue along with all possible treatments thoroughly. Once we decided surgery was needed, the entire process was smooth and precise. I am now 4 weeks out of surgery and back to my normal activities. I would recommend him to all of my friends!

I started seeing Dr. Foulk in highschool - a decade ago. He does everything he can to keep your injuries from being the focal point of your life. I know insurance plays a part in terms of treatment, but Foulk never jumps to surgery being the first and only alternative. He doesn't overprescribe meds, and is very very careful with his use of cortizone. He also understands if you can't afford certain treatments and will work with you. Amazing guy. Still remembers me/my chart like we just met.
in Arvada, CO |
Dr. Foulk is smart, experienced, honest, personable----he tells it as it is. He respects his patients. I feel very comfortable with him.
Littleton, CO |
Dr. Foulk is absolutely wonderful. With this being my second labrum repair in my shoulder, he spent plenty of time with him in regards to getting myself back in shape for the upcoming ski season. He is very easy to communicate with, and always makes sure that every question you may have is answered. I would highly recommend Dr. Foulk.
in Thornton, CO |
Dr. Foulk is awesome. Not only is he incredibly intelligent but is super personable and very positive. I have recommended him to anyone with orthopedic challenges. He has helped me with 2 fairly serious knee issues (ACL reconstruction, lateral femoral condyle microfracture) and has helped me to achieve my physical goals of returning to a very active lifestyle. I trust him 100% with my knee. He is an awesome doctor and I fully endorse him. His assistant Nate is awesome too.
in Golden, Co |
I have been Dr. Foulk's patient for the past 8 years. Dr. Foulk's bed side manner is amazing, he truley listens and takes time to answer all my questions.
in Arvada , CO |
Dr.Foulk is always KIND yet professional takes time to answer all my questions and never seems rushed, although I am sure he is quite busy. Thank you for everything you have done for me Dr.Foulk.
in Denver, CO |
Dr. Foulk and the Panorama team have been awesome and patient with my care, explanations and recovery! Have developed a rapport to where I trust him implicitly. His team's follow up outside of office visits exceeds highest expectations. RA and associated joint problems have slowed me down. He and his team, including my physical therapist, keep me motivated to full recovery. There aren't enough stars to promote Dr. Foulk and his team's excellence!
Denver, CO |
Dr. Foulk and Panorama Orthopedics has proven to be a reliable source of ortho care (shoulder rotator cuff repair in my case). Dr. Foulk is forthright personable and caring. My personal experience has been as good as can be expected from first consult to final follow up. Clearly I've had a fine outcome to one of the most difficult ortho repairs. I'm thankful for results. Note: The Drs. and staff listen and respond to all questions.
Denver, CO |
He is absolutely amazing! This is a man that truly loves his job and it shows. If you're ever in the position of needing an orthopedic surgeon, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Foulk!!!
