Less than a day after Dr. Foulkes did my hand surgery, I was able to do thing with my hand that I had not been able to since February (when a different surgeon attempted to "fix my hand." Dr. Foulkes explained everything in great detail, and has great bedside manner.

Dr. Foulkes is one of the very best hand surgeons in Central Georgia. I have been his patient for many years and have always received excellent care. His bedside manner is great and surgical skills beyond compare. I have recommended him to several friends, family, and coworkers over the past 20 years and all have been completely satisfied.
