Dr. Foltz listened to me, and what symptoms I was telling him about, He did an EMG, and has since upon calling him with my latest symptoms referred me to P.T and a pain management specialist.

DR. FOLTZ IS SERIOUSLY THE WORST NEUROLOGIST I HAVE EVER COME ACROSS. First, I was referred to Dr. Foltz from Honor Health. On my 1st visit, I explained to him about my recent seizure. He then immediately ordered an EEG. On my EEG follow-up visit, he said my results were abnormal and I needed to start medication now. I had to first ask him why my results were abnormal and he said this is due to the presence of bifrontal sharp waves. This was all that he said and the visit lasted only 3 mins.

called to discuss one of his patients for continued care and he had little to no interest in his patient. I feel very sorry for his patients.

Dr. Foltz not only mis-diagnosed me with epilepsy, but when I went for a second opinion he NEVER provided the EEG on which he had based his diagnosis. I ended up paying $7,000 for an in-hospital epilepsy study. One month pre-study: written request for his findings. Nothing. Phone call request day of hospitalization? Nothing. Husband went on day of release for records. Nothing. Though I complained of major bad side effects from the drug (Keppra) that he prescribed, he only increased my dosage.

One of the WORSE experience I ever had! Made an appointment here so that I could have Dr. Foltz explain the CT scans, MRI's and EEG test results. The hospital didn't fax them before my visit so I asked to WAIT til the hospital sent them. It would have been a matter of 10-15 minutes! I was told NO! I explained that I had 3 mini strokes and desperately needed to know what the test results said and that results were being faxed! The doctor did a RUSH exam and never called with results!

Not likely to recommend. Likes to do te$ts in office but, doesn't communicate how the test results ( or, even out of office tests results) relates to big picture of care. Doesn't explain what test results mean. During office visits, he shakes his foot a lot and taps his pen on his notepad like, hurry-up, I'm busy, you're taking up my time! (yes, he relies on his notepad as your medical record) There is a lot of office staff turn-over.

Referred to Dr. Foltz, but never saw him. The Patient Information Forms that I was given to fill out was quite specific about many penalties for cancelations and "no-shows". Never filled out the forms. Never returned.

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!!!

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...
