Highland, MD |
I was referred to Dr. Foltz after experiencing 1.5 months of excruciating nerve pain. This is one of the worst doctors I have ever seen. I was in & out in 5 minutes, he was completely disinterested in hearing the history on my situation, and he didn't even initiate a discussion about my current medications to ensure they are appropriate. He basically said I don't know what is going on, go get an MRI, then rushed me out the door. Complete waste of time, and I felt totally disprespected.

He is not a "talker"...however, there were indications he is listening, and that he is up on things. He is pleasant and friendly. I was hoping that my records had been reviewed prior to visit, they had not. Yet he was on it in a flash and seems to be very bright and quick with the information once he saw it. His immediate recommendations seem to be spot on.

Don't waste your time and money on this guy. He lacks bedside manner and the caring attitude that we all should expect in a doctor. I was in and out in less than 10 minutes and he was opening the door as I was trying to ask questions. Was NOT impressed at all! If I could give him 1/2 a star I would!

My wife was a new patient seeking a neurologist after having a stroke caused by low blood pressure and an occluded right carotid artery. On our first and only visit with Mr. Foltz, he prescribed her a medication for her migraines. When picking up the medication from the pharmacy, we're informed that the medication is used to treat high blood pressure. Why would somebody who calls themselves a doctor prescribe a medication that would worsen an existing condition? Not a good doctor!!!

Nice and respectful, this doctor treats my 13 year daughter well. He is both straightforward and thorough.

Well, my husband saw the doctor for his sleep disorder and bi-pap maintenance for exactly 2.5 minutes after having to wait 40 minutes to see this guy. For that 2.5 minutes, he charged us $385. Holy crap! At that rate, this guy could retire after just one year of appointments! I wish I had a job that could rake in the dough by doing absolutely NOTHING!

If you are going to allow the high star ratings to sway you to seeing this doctor or their facility, PLEASE DO NOT. This was my mistake. You will be in and out without the chance to even fully explain your situation or condition. Sadly, I was expecting more from some of the good reviews he received, but now I'm wondering if those are fabricated. But, if you are looking for a doctor who will sit their and listen to all the aspects of your conditions, this isn't the doctor or facility for you.

I have only seen him a few times, and though, I feel he is competent, I am looking for a new doctor. You are required to go thru his assistant for help. Due to an error on their records, my insurance has declined a prescription I need - I don't know what caused the error, or even how to get it corrected, as the (4) messages I have left, have yet to be returned...

I wouldn't go to any other doctor ever. I always recommend him and always will. My mother has wanted me to move back to CA to help her and she is coming to terms I won't move because of the fantastic Dr. Foltz.

I have already recommended Dr Foltz to several people.. #1 reason: He is a kind and wonderful listener! He is reassuring when I feel uncertain about my neurological health and I always leave his office being grateful that he is my doctor. And this is the TRUTH! Thank you Dr. Foltz !
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Foltz is short and to the point but very professional and friendly. He explained tests as they were done. Answered all my questions. Cared about any concerns I had. I will definitely keep him as my Neurologist and recommend him to friends and family.
