I can't say enough good things about Dr Follo and his staff. He is very knowledgable, great bedside manner, kind and caring. His staff is courteous and friendly. I'd definitely recommend Dr Follo to anyone looking for an excellent doctor.

I have been a patient of Dr Follo for many years. He's kind, caring and compassionate. His staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend him. It seems like Liz Winick wants to promote her family issues in a public forum. How totally childish. She sounds like a spoiled brat who is throwing a tantrum because she can't have her way. She must be a peach to be married to.

I used to go to a large group for my primary care doctor but felt I was just another number there. Dr Follo took his time with me and listened to me instead of typing into a keyboard with his back to me. He actually had me come back and went over my bloodwork with me telling me how my numbers were and if we needed to do anything about them. My other Dr had me call up in 2 weeks and they would say, everything seems fine come back in 1 year. It is great to know what my A1c is and was so that I

Excellent doctor, excellent bedside manner. Excellent staff. He really cares about his patients and knows exactly what he's talking about but never talks down to his patients. I have been a patient of Dr Follo since he began his practice and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great doctor who cares about his patients.

I have very serious concerns about Dr. Follo's ethics and patient care. He has been my 76 year old mothers primary care phycisian for 6 years. She has difficulties walking and has serious hand trembling issues. He refused to renew her car handicap parking permit and also declined her prescriptions for disorders that he has prescribed for a number of years. His stated reason was that he was angry because she did not have the physical capability to take care of his father.

Dr. Follo is an excellent doctor with a very nice bedside manner.

This man is not a good doctor. Stay away from him. He likes to hear himself talk more than treating his patients. Arrogant, mean, untrustworthy.

Seems like a nice guy but charges exploratory lab tests that aren't covered under your insurance for standard routine checkups. Dishonest doctor just trying to make a buck.
