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.

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.

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.
