What People Say About Dr. James Foelsch, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

He is a quack! When my daughter was moving to Fairbanks we were looking for a dr to monitor her VNS - they said he did this. NOT! only checked it once and was told by her former neurologist at UTMC in Ohio the VNS needed watched because the generator battery may die within a year. Dr. never checked it and now it is dead (he had the option to turn settings down to last her until they moved back to the lower 48)- she has since moved to Alabama and will now have to start all over to titrate to the former settings. What a setback!

Dr Foelsch is neither compassionate or caring about his patients. He is not helpful in answering questions, and he doesn't actually hear what his patients have to say. After dealing with him for over a year I found a real Dr. in Anchorage and travel there several times a year for my treatments. I wouldn't allow Foelsch to treat a stubbed toe on my dog!
