Patient Comments (22)
in Pewaukee, WI |
I have had 2 different surgeries, one on each hand. I could not be more pleased with Dr Foley's concern before and after each surgery. Questions answered so that they are easy to understand and the comfort to know he is available immediately if a problem arises. Very easy to talk to and takes the time to listen.

Three friends have already used Dr. Foley and all of us continue to recommend him. After a total of 3 procedures on my hands, life if much easier now. He is personable and easy to talk with. His staff is caring and informative. All good!! Carolyn

Very personal doctor. Good listener. Very pleased with my care.

Very complicated hand surgery on my father who is 74 years old. Not only did his surgery go flawlessly but his recovery was remarkable. Not only did he not need ANY PT following surgery-but now a few months later-there is barely even a visible scar. IF you didn't know there was a surgery-you would never be able to tell. He healed great and had no complications. Other family members who have had the same surgery unfortunately did not have the same results. I would HIGHLY recommend!

Dr. Foley treats you with care. He is concerned and confident for a successful outcome to any procedure. My carpal tunnel surgery was a success. I am able to perform (violin, viola and play piano and fish) with my hands without any tingling or numbness. So thankful for Dr. James Foley's expertise!
Mukwonago, WI |
I work with my hands for a living and developed Carpal tunnel and trigger finger in both hands. I put it off as long as possible because i was worried about being able to continue doing my job. So far the results of the surgery have gone above and beyond what i expected. I am very happy with I went to Dr. Foley and highly recommend him.

Spent 2 minutes with me. Seemed like he didn't care a bit. Has no bedside manor.
Oconomowoc, WI |
Developed "trigger finger" in middle finger of both hands (where you cannot make a fist and in constant pain) - Dr. Foley was recommended by private physician - at initial exam he diagnosed problem. Had surgery on right hand first and 3-1/2 months later, had surgery on left hand. Hands were quite usable within a week of surgery and completely recovered in 8 weeks. The improvement and full functionality is amazing.

Confident in his diagnoses -not to excess, but to create level of patient comfort

carpal tunnel surgery was very smooth and professional. Dr. Foley even called me personally next day! If your even considering this surgery trust me this is a cinch.

I have had to have Surgery on both of my Hands due to "Trigger Fingers." I liked Dr. Foley the first time I met him. I was a little nervous about having my Surgery but I knew that I had to do this. Dr. Foley was so Kind and he answered all of my questions so that I understood the procedure. I was so Happy with the results, I can actually use my hands again! I would definitely recommend Dr. Foley.
Waukesha, WI |
I went to Dr. Foley to have minor surgery on my thumb. He gave me different options and encouraged questions so I could make an informed decision. My surgery went well and so did the healing.
in Burlington, WI |
Dr. Foley was friendly, professional and courtesy. He diagnosed and surgically corrected my condition and had me back to doing the things I love in 6 weeks!
in Big Bend, WI |
I would definitely recommend Dr. Foley. I had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. I couldn't be happier with the results. The whole staff was wonderful. They had me at ease the whole time. Dr. Foley was very friendly and explained everything I asked. He said I can call anytime with any further questions.
in Waukesha, WI |
I owe Dr. Foley an apology. I was concerned for my wife's hand surgery and when the office staff took a little longer to get things scheduled with the hospital I prematurely wrote a poor review. Her procedure went well and his explanation of the process and outcome was perfect.
in Waukesha, WI |
I have had several surgeries by Dr. Foley. He has always made me feel confident of his ability and I would recommend him highly. He is pleasant and easy to talk with. I also appreciated how helpful his office staff was whenever I called.

Dr Foley was considerate and concerned. I felt comfortable with him.
in Dousman, WI |
I would highly recommend Dr. Foley. Very professional, wonderful care and was glad to have him as my surgeon. He quickly repaired a severed tendon from a chainsaw accident and within 5 weeks I'm back to normal. I could barely detect a scar.

Mukwonago |
Dr James Foley was amazing he was very nice. Explained everything answered any questions did an incredible job putting a pin in to my 12 year old son's pinky finger and even called and checked on him the next day personally.
in Muskego, WI |
Dr. Foley was extremely informative about what my problem was and how he would be correcting the issue through surgery. He thoroughly explained the procedure and I was very comfortable going into the surgery. Dr. Foley and his staff were very congenial during my office visits and surgery. The surgery only required a local anesthetic and during the whole time we laughed and talked about current affairs. I really enjoyed meeting Dr. Foley. He is a great doctor and a wonderful human being.
