Dr. Foulk repaired my torn quad tendon about 3 years ago. He was very caring and professional. He explained everything about the injury, procedure, and recuperation very well, which helped reduce my anxiety level. The surgery went well. I'm almost 70 years old and back to riding my bike and backpacking thanks to Dr. Doug's good work. He made me feel like he viewed me as a person, rather than just some body parts that needed to be sewn back together.

I've been personally been a patient of Dr. Foulk and so has my son. He's incredible - his bedside manner is phenomenal - he doesn't make you feel rushed; he takes the time to talk to you so you understand, and overall does a great job of getting you fixed.

Dr Foulk is very efficient and easy to talk to. He has a good sense of humor and answers all my questions with patience and respect. He spends whatever time is needed (by me) and is encouraging. I have never needed to wait long to see him. Away from the office I have been very impressed by the staff answering my questions via email or that portal, the same day! I'm not sure how I would improve this experience except to skip it all-together, which was not even an option. He is good!

I have seen Dr. Faulk for 10 years, rotator cuff and shoulder replacement . He is very thorough and speaks in language people understand. He tells it like it is. Has done a great job for me.
