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.
